ARSENAL 1-3 ASTON VILLA
Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger: "[To the assembled press] You got what you wanted, you should be happy. Before the start the season that was all you write in the papers so what do you expect? Could we have won the game with the players we had on the pitch? I say yes. If we don't spend the money, it is because we don't find the players. I am not the only one to work on that, we are a team that works on that and we are ready to buy the players if we find the players good enough for us.
"My job is to make the fans happy, but we haven't lost a game because of that (not spending). We take our work seriously and we analyse every player in the world and spend 24 hours a day doing that. We are ready to spend, but until we buy players we have to win football games and it is not an excuse not to win the game today.
"[On referee Anthony Taylor and the disputed second penalty] "I didn't like his performance, but more than his performance I didn't like his spirit of how he refereed the game. I didn't like the fact the way the game was refereed and this is a deeper question that just one decision. I don't like to lie, I didn't like what he did. The linesman said he to me he did not give the penalty and he was at the level of the tackle, so why does the referee who did not give the penalty straight away suddenly give the penalty? That is what is amazing to me. I would understand if the linesman said it was a penalty, but you have to live with that and just because you get these decisions given against you that doesn't mean you should go on to lose the game."
Aston Villa manager Paul Lambert: "I think everybody up and down the country would have thought it was a home banker really, but I have got lads in there who are really good, top footballers. The no-fear attitude was key. Because we are young, everyone probably thought there would be an adverse reaction to it, but I have got to give them a lot of credit."
SWANSEA CITY 1-4 MANCHESTER UNITED
Swansea manager Michael Laurdrup: "I actually thought that our game plan was working well, up until Van Persie’s opening goal. I wanted us to put United under pressure from the start and then try to win the match in the second half. We succeeded for 30-odd minutes when we controlled the game and Van Persie wasn’t getting on the ball in danger areas. But you then saw the difference when Van Persie scored the first goal with an excellent strike… Van Persie’s finishing today was the difference between the sides."
“If there was a good time to play Manchester United, then this was probably it… But we have to put this behind us and move on because we’ve a big match in the Europa League coming up in the next few days. Shortly after that we’ve got Spurs in the League, so we must make sure we’re ready for those games.”
Manchester United manager David Moyes: "[On whether he was relieved to win handsomely] Yeah it is because you always want to win your games and as manager of Manchester United the job is to win the games. The players did that today. Swansea had a lot of the ball and they passed it very well and are very well managed under Michael Laudrup but we limited to them to few opportunities. We could have played better at times but we're happy to score 4-1.
"[On Wayne Rooney] He got 65 minutes in the game against Scotland and I felt he could do a job today if he came in. He's not ready yet physically as he's not done a lot of training but he came on and had a great run. It will be great for Wayne to get those minutes on the pitch. People know good players and Wayne is a good player and people want them in your team."
LIVERPOOL 1-0 STOKE CITY
Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers: "It was a terrific performance all-round but of course the goalkeeper gets the plaudits when he saves a penalty at the end. He made three terrific saves in the game. He made one in the first half from Walters but obviously when you don't take your chances - and we created numerous chances - and you get a penalty against you at the end you have that sinking feeling. But he had done his homework, he made a good first save and his second action to get up and make the double save [from substitute Kenwyne Jones] was impressive.
"I'm delighted for the players. The work they have put in over pre-season - and the focus and concentration amid everything that was thrown at the club meant I was delighted when they came out and played like that, creating so many chances and getting the win. It is the first three points and hopefully there will be many more.
"[On Luis Suarez, who was at the match] He is back, smiling and happy… I am satisfied with how everything has been resolved and we as a club are looking to the future… He is a part of our team and club and the supporters are a class act here."
Stoke assistant manager Mark Bowen: "You're disappointed because you think you're going to come away with a point [after the late penalty was awarded]. He's missed a couple in the past but he struck it well enough. I just thought the keeper made a good save. Jon Walters gives everything for this club, so nobody in the dressing room will do anything other than pick him up and get him ready for the next game.
"I thought it was going to be a battle and the keeper [Asmir Begovic] kept us in it at times. It was a case of staying in the game as long as you can because we are asking them to play a different kind of game and you hope they don't lose confidence, which I didn't think they did."
NORWICH 2-2 EVERTON
Norwich manager Chris Hughton: "[On new £8.5m signing Ricky van Wolfswinkel] He's certainly done today what we wanted him to do. That's about working hard for the team. He certainly gave us a good outlet up front. He's a willing runner up front and I'm really pleased for him. It was certainly a nice feeling to get a goal on his debut. He is someone that is used to scoring goals. The challenge now is to do it at the top level."
Everton manager Roberto Martinez: "[On English youngster Ross Barkley's excellent display] Tactically he was outstanding. That was a very mature performance for a young man. I was very pleased with that because we've seen that in pre-season. You want to have as many players who can give you something special as you can. Ross has got that talent. I think we have a few throughout the squad. And that's important for competition
"To have a player with that ability at that age is an incredible asset for us… He can understand what he needs to do to be effective off the ball. He wants to take information in and wants to understand. I thought he was perfect at it today."
SUNDERLAND 0-1 FULHAM
Sunderland manager Paolo Di Canio: "We weren't really ferocious. We have to be nasty in terms of our football. I don't want to say we had a clear identity but a big part of the puzzle is clear. I think we did well but it's obvious we can do much better.
"Today we had the quality of Cabral but we need another player there who can feed my striker and my wingers. We can improve this area if we bring in another player with the key - a real playmaker with a personality and a physical presence because this is the art of the game.
"I told them before the start of the season if we play well and deliver a clear identity on the field I prefer to lose and play well rather than win and play very bad - but after that I think a few points will be better. The only disappointment is when you dominate and create 10 clear chances and they had only one corner kick. There was only one team in it, but you have to work on it and take the positives."
Fulham manager Martin Jol: "When you play against Sunderland you have to get out from the back and I was disappointed with the way we wanted to win the game - in hindsight I was very pleased with the result but we have to do better in future.
"[On goalscorer Patjim Kasami] For a young kid to score his first goal and the winning goal in the Premier League is of course what I want from him. I want him to be happy and enjoy his football and develop himself. I sent him to Switzerland last year because he's a good talent and a strong kid. I thought it was a good chance to start Kasami and I'm glad I chose him."
WEST BROM 0-1 SOUTHAMPTON
West Brom manager Steve Clarke: "[On the penalty which decided the game] I thought it was very, very soft, I have to say. I have seen it again a number of times on video. It was clever play from the Southampton player and to make that call at that stage of the game - I thought it was a very big decision [for referee Kevin Friend] to make."
Southampton manager Mauricio Pochettino: "[On 90th minute match-winner Ricky Lambert] He is having a dream week. Everything is going well for him - actually, everything is perfect for him. The greatest thing about this whole story about Rickie Lambert is that he deserves everything he is getting, all the success he is getting, because he is a brilliant person and a great footballer. We are very lucky to have him, not just as a player but also as a person, within our squad."
"We actually scored a goal before (the penalty) that wasn't allowed to stand and that was a legitimate goal. We were unlucky with that decision by the referee. But I think in the overall reading of the game, we were superior to West Brom."
WEST HAM 2-0 CARDIFF
West Ham manager Sam Allardyce: "We've done a great job today. Our time spent in pre-season has stood us in good stead. We showed today that physically and mentally we were 100 per cent ready for the Premier League. We won the game comfortably, perhaps not taking as many chances as we'd have liked, but that doesn't matter now because it's a 2-0 victory and a clean sheet. They were two very good goals from Joe Cole and Kevin Nolan and the team performed very, very well.
"[On new signing Stewart Downing, who came off the bench] We didn't start him because he was short of match time during pre-season. Cardiff were tiring and the spaces were getting wider, so off he went. What he contributed was exciting and he's glad to be here, that's the most important thing. We hope he gave the crowd a look at something they'll see all season."
Cardiff City manager Malky Mackay: "We started slowly but after that we had an awful lot of possession. We knew we were coming to a good team in a good atmosphere. They were clinical with Cole's goal and while we had plenty of possession, there was no penetration. We grew into the game in the second half.
"Overall I can't be too harsh on my players because we gave a good account of ourselves. We weren't overawed and that showed today. We're trying to get new players and we'll keep trying to do that, but sometimes it's not always in your control. If I find a good player and everything comes together in terms of the club and player agreeing everything, I'll absolutely try and act."
