sport news How the Premier League's new signings rated on week one of the new season

The opening weekend of the Premier League season gave fans a chance to see their club's new recruits in competitive action for the first time.

Willian was the standout performer as Arsenal strolled to a 3-0 win at Fulham while Allan and Everton's other midfield recruits helped them end their top six nightmare with victory at Tottenham.

But Chelsea's £89million man Kai Havertz struggled to do anything meaningful at Brighton while Leeds defender Robin Koch endured a nightmare at Anfield on Saturday night.

With the first weekend of the new Premier League season now completed, Sportsmail takes a look at how all of the new signings performed.

Arsenal

Willian - 8/10

The Brazilian showed what Chelsea fans are missing with a superb performance for his new club at Fulham. He provided two assists in the 3-0 win and immediately worked his way into the hearts of Arsenal fans.

Gabriel Magalhaes - 8/10  

Mikel Arteta could be forgiven for thinking he has found Arsenal's defensive saviour inside his first 90 minutes. The Brazilian was composed in his defending, kept a clean sheet and even scored to cap a sensational first appearance.

Brighton 

Adam Lallana - 5/10

Not the debut Lallana would have hoped for as he looks to nail down a spot in Graham Potter's team following his arrival from Liverpool. He gave away the ball that led to Chelsea's opener and came off injured before half-time.

Chelsea

Timo Werner - 8/10

No goal on his Premier League debut for Werner but he showed exactly why he was brought into the club. His electric pace helped him win the penalty that Jorginho scored to give the Blues the lead and he caused Brighton problems all night. 

Kai Havertz - 6/10

Nobody can expect an instant impact from the 21-year-old and his performance on Monday night showed signs of a player still finding his feet in a new tactical system. Couldn't get into the game at all.

Crystal Palace

Eberechi Eze - 6/10

High hopes for the former QPR midfielder but he couldn't make any sort of impact in the time he was given by Roy Hodgson. Still looked tidy on the ball and his influence in the team will surely grow. 

Everton

James Rodriguez - 7/10

There was enormous expectation on the Colombian and he showed glimpses of his quality. Not got the pace to drive away from opponents but with a left foot like his, Rodriguez will cause plenty of problems for teams this season.

Allan - 8/10

Gary Neville named him Man of the Match on Sky Sports and it was exactly the kind of midfield display Everton have been lacking. Allan was tough in the tackle, barking instructions and tidy in possession. Carlo Ancelotti will be very happy.

Abdoulaye Doucoure - 7/10

Another member of Everton's midfield who impressed at Tottenham. Doucoure stamped his authority on the game, flying into tackles and regaining
