Fans, don't fret if your team hasn't had a winning start. Although 17 of the past 26 English Premier League champions won their season openers, this hasn't always been the case. Nine seasons saw the eventual champion draw or lose its opening game. Most recently, Manchester United won the 2012/13 PL title having kicked off the season with a 0-1 loss to Everton. The Reds went on to lose just four more games. Blackburn Rovers, which won the 1994/95 season, drew its season opener against Southampton, but ended the league table on top with a whopping 12-point difference between third-place Nottingham Forest.

In other words, the best is yet to come.
