The Premiership kicks off today, everybody, WHOOP! Here's RTE's action from the opening day of the English Premier League season, including Blackburn Rovers v Manchester City, Chelsea v Hull City, Everton v Arsenal and Stoke City v Burnley. Mark Hughes' expensively-assembled team travelled to Ewood Park for a meeting with his old side, while new manager Carlo Ancelotti made his Stamford Bridge bow and will have been expecting the Blues to improve on their goalless draw with the Tigers in last season's corresponding fixture. Elsewhere, last term's respective fifth and fourth-placed sides locked horns at Goodison Park and the Clarets made their Premier League debut at the Britannia Stadium.
