Chelsea began their title defence in shambolic style with a shock home defeat to Burnley as the instability surrounding the champions spilled over in to the first weekend of the new season.

There was better news for other title hopefuls though, with Manchester City, Tottenham Hotspur, and Manchester United all clinching impressive wins, while Arsenal fought back to claim all three points.

Elsewhere, defensive issues continue to plague Liverpool.

In this week's Extra Time podcast, Jon Turner, Steve Luckings, John McAuley and special guest Richard Jolly discuss all of this and more from the Premier League's opening weekend.
