The five best performing Premier League signings of the opening weekend

Players from Chelsea, Arsenal, Tottenham Hotspur, Southampton and Swansea City feature.

Cesc Fabregas

You would certainly expect a player of Cesc Fabregas' calibre and Premier League experience to have a phenomenal debut, and he certainly did not disappoint. The £30 million signing form Barcelona could be one of the signings of the season if he continues the way he started in Chelsea's 3-1 win over Burnley.

The 27-year-old justified his Europe-wide title as 'Assist King' with one of the greatest assists and team goals you are likely to see this season. After good build-up play from Hazard and Ivanovic, the Spaniard received the ball not he edge of the box and played an impeccable first-time half-volleyed pass directly into the path of Schurrle who only needed one touch to finish. Cesc also played a role in Chelsea's first, and assisted their third goal just for good measure.

Calum Chambers

The future could be very bright for our home nation's defence as two of our five debutants are young Englishman. Calum Chambers, who Arsene Wenger signed for £16 million from Southampton, put on a majestic performance on his debut for Arsenal.

Judging by his first Premier League game for the Gunners you would never guess that Chambers is on 19-years-old. The youngster's composure with and without the ball was brilliant to watch, he always looked comfortable next to Koscielny and even ventured forward on the odd occasion. Chambers showed maturity far beyond his years on his debut and has already been compared to England legends Bobby Moore and Rio Ferdinand. 

Eric Dier

The new Tottenham signing did not take long to become a fan favourite with the White Hart Lane faithful as he scored a dramatic late winner in their 1-0 win over West Ham United. Eric Dier joined Spurs earlier this month in what seems like it could be a bargain, as they paid Sporting Lisbon just £4 million for his services.

The 20-year-old Englishman showed composure and versatility that far exceeded his age on Saturday. Dier started his debut at centre-back but was forced to switch to right-back after Kyle Naughton's sending off. Then in the dying seconds the defender decided to try his hand at centre-forward, timing his run perfectly, he collected a Harry Kane through ball and finished with the nous of a veteran striker.

Dušan Tadić

It's been a very gloomy summer for Southampton and their supporters having to watch the majority of their key players depart for pastures new. However their encouraging performance against Liverpool and the debut of Serbian winger Dušan Tadić will give them much hope for the coming season.

The £11 million singing from FC Twente couldn't have asked for a tougher start to his Southampton career with an away trip to Anfield, but the 25-year-old looked as if he will replace Adam Lallana with ease. The 25-year-old made some nice runs, great touches and exquisite passes. The best of which was a wonderful back heel into the path of Nathaniel Clyne who fired an equaliser past Simon Mignolet. 

Gylfi Sigurdsson

Swansea's league opener away at Manchester Untied was Gylfi Sigurdsson's second debut for the Welsh side, and it seems he is picking up from where he left of with the Swans in 2012, as his performance and goal helped them to defeat United 2-1.

Sigurdsson rejoined the Swans in a deal that saw Ben Davies go in the opposite direction, and he got off the a flyer at Old Trafford as he supplied the assist for Ki Sung-Yueng's opener, and then drove home the winner with 18 minutes remaining.
