6 of the Best Moments From the Premier League's Opening Weekend

The Premier League returned to action this weekend and as usual it left us with plenty to talk about.

So, from beautiful back-heels to breathtaking set-pieces, via a bird's poo, here are six of the best moments from matchweek one...

6. Best Vine

The Football Fan Who Was Better Than the Professional at Taking a Free-Kick

We've seen some inventive set-pieces in our time, but Spurs may be on to something with their latest routine.

The last thing West Ham goalkeeper Adrian expected as Christian Eriksen lined-up a 25 yard free-kick was for the Dane to step aside and allow this plucky supporter to try his luck on goal.

To be fair, the Spaniard had to be on his toes to deny the slippery pitch invader what would have been an exquisite first goal for Mauricio Pochettino's side.

Sadly though, the referee ordered a swift re-take - which £11m Eriksen duly struck over the crossbar and into the stand.

5. Best Game

Leicester City v Everton

It's been 10 years since Leicester last set foot in the top flight and based on Saturday's encounter, it'll be good to have them back.

Aiden McGeady's spectacular strike gave the visitors an early lead, but the resilient Foxes fought back immediately through new recruit Leonardo Ulloa before Steven Naismith's goal looked to have handed the Toffees all three points.

That is until Chris Wood - who was reportedly on his way out of the club a week ago - stepped off the bench to level proceedings.

If Leicester's Championship home form is anything to go by - one defeat since April 2013 - Everton won't be the only ones left frustrated at the King Power this season.

4. Best Timing

The Bird Who Pooed in Ashley Young's Mouth

Young's delivery left a lot to be desired last season, forcing Manchester United to explore all possible avenues as they seek to improve the winger's technique.

The Red Devils eventually settled on this passing bird, who wasted no time in identifying its target and hitting it first time - right in the beak!

Looks like we've found United's new No.7...

3. Best Goal

Lee Cattermole

Known for his reckless tackles, super-high shorts and crying on the pitch one time at Middlesbrough, it was in fact Cattermole's ability with a football that made the headlines on Saturday.

Or, at least, his ability to get the ball under control, thwack it really hard towards goal and pray it goes in!

It made a pleasant change from opening day 2010/11, when the 26-year-old received his marching orders for a clumsy challenge on Birmingham's Cameron Jerome.

2. Best Assist

Edin Dzeko

The Bosnian's back-heeled assist for David Silva is perhaps best described by @City_Watch, who tweeted: "Edin suddenly turned into Silva and Silva turned into Edin. Reversed roles there."

That's some compliment for the former Wolfsburg man who is often found fumbling around the penalty box like a startled gazelle.

1. Best Save

Simon Mignolet

Southampton were a whisker away from a point at Anfield on Sunday when Morgan Schneiderlin's effort crashed off the Liverpool crossbar with two minutes to go.

Upon close inspection, the Reds had Mignolet to thank for keeping them ahead after he somehow managed to get a fingertip to the Frenchman's fierce drive - though they should probably give Shane Long a bit of credit for missing the follow up which had appeared easier to score!

Not bad for a £12m striker...
