Super start for RVP & Man Utd - awful for Arsene & Arsenal
Despite the odd scare it was business as usual for both Robin van Persie & Manchester United as they got their season off to a winning start.
United are quoted at 5/2 to lift the EPL trophy again but William Hill have trimmed Van Persie from 7/2 to 2/1 be the top League goal scorer this year.
Conversely Arsenal had a shocker and they have drifted from 10/1 to 14/1 to win the league. With Arsene Wenger now 7/4 not to see out the season.
"It looks like punters have underestimated Manchester United again and they will not be giving away their title cheaply," said William Hill spokesman Rupert Adams.

The Emirates rang out with 40,000 boos as Arsenal crashed to an opening day defeat and William Hill offer 7/4 that Arsene Wenger has left the club come the final day of the season.
"Wenger has reportedly had a £70m warchest of which he has spent exactly zero," said William Hill spokesman Joe Crilly. "Unless he makes signings before the transfer window shuts, he is surely on borrowed time."
