5 talking points ahead of the weekend's Premier League action

Among last weekend's surprises was the way that big-spending Aston Villa fared at newly-promoted Watford. Summer arrivals Emi Buendia, Danny Ings and Ashley Young all started at Vicarage Road, where the Hornets took a three-goal advantage before Dean Smith's men belatedly reduced the deficit as they lost 3-2. Villa's manager was fuming and said his side were “unrecognisable” from last season, so he will be desperate for them to put things right against predecessor Steve Bruce's Newcastle. It will be the first competitive match in front of a full Villa Park in 17 months – and a first there without departed skipper Jack Grealish in quite some time.
