In Moreno and Alcacer, new Villarreal coach Unai Emery knows he has players who are both capable of netting between 15-20 goals a season (Moreno scored 18 last season and was the top scoring Spaniard in La Liga) and the pair will give his side a lot of points as they look to qualify for the Champions League this campaign.

Crystal Palace's win at Old Trafford means they are one of five teams with six points from two games and they will face another team with a perfect start when Everton visit Selhurst Park on Saturday afternoon. The game sees the side with the best pass completion numbers in the Premier League (Everton 88.3 percent) against Palace, who have the worst a pass completion rate (56.4 percent), so it's probably fair to say we can expect a contrast in styles.
