Great start for great Dane

IT was a case of Brendan who? for Swansea City fans after the Michael Laudrup era began with a bang on a scorching opening day of the English Premier League.

While the great Dane masterminded a 5-0 thumping of QPR at Loftus Road - Swansea's first win on day one of the season for seven years - former boss Brendan Rodgers was forced to endure a nightmare start at new club Liverpool, with the Reds going down 3-0 at West Bromwich Albion after Daniel Agger's sending off.

New Spanish midfielder Miguel Michu and Nathan Dyer scored doubles for the Swans, while Scott Sinclair, who could soon be on his way to Manchester City, scored after coming on as a substitute.

Fulham, too, had a dream start with a 5-0 thumping of Norwich City at Craven Cottage.

West Ham United marked its EPL return with a 1-0 home win over Aston Villa on the hottest day in London this year. Captain Kevin Nolan scored the winner.

Arsenal found it tough going in front of goal without the departed Robin van Persie and could only manage a 0-0 home draw with Sunderland. Reading snatched a late goal to secure a 1-1 home draw with Stoke City.
