Word on the Tweet: Bale makes his debut as Defoe reveals the secret behind his prolific form

Also, David Silva celebrates his new contract with Manchester City but has nobody to celebrate with as Vincent Kompany & Mario Balotelli take in the Bernabeu tour
With the international break finally over, the Premier League came back with a bang over the weekend providing plenty of goals and intrigue.

Thankfully, that means the reaction on Twitter has stepped up a notch and this week we even have a new contributor in the shape of Gareth Bale.

Elsewhere, Rio Ferdinand has been understandably baffled by the weather in Manchester and Jermain Defoe has revealed the secret to his scoring run.

Check out all this action and more in Goal.com’s latest Word on the Tweet

“Very happy to have renewed my contract, very easy decision to stay. Thank you to all @MCFC fans for your continued support”

Fresh from committing his long-term future to the club, Manchester City’s David Silva thanks supporters.

“With Mario, checking out the dressing rooms at the Bernabéu before tomorrows game. #MCFC #Real http://pic.twitter.com/EwmyDYxR”

However, Vincent Kompany is too busy to celebrate. Here he is proving that even world class footballers want to take a look around the most famous stadiums.

“Morning-still can't believe we didn't win-if we took r chances had it wrapped up by h/t-can't dwell we didn't, gotta move on that's football”

Everton captain Phil Neville still can’t believe his side drew 2-2 against Newcastle United at Goodison Park on Monday evening. Filing the match report was far worse, Phil.

“Recovery day today then home for champions league game real vs city tonight should be a cracker”

Neville, again, this time looking forward to watching the mouth-watering Champions League clash at the Bernabeu.

“Had 2 seasons already this morning....rain + sunshine! Just waiting on snow + a freeze over! #ManchesterWeather”

Rio Ferdinand is waiting for some snow thanks to the typically unpredictable weather in Manchester.

“Loving my new Adidas boots best colour #goalsgoalsgoals @adidasUK”

Whilst Jermain Defoe thanks his new boots for a prolific start to the Premier League campaign.

“How good does Mirallas look? Seem to recall @VincentKompany telling us he was a great buy for Everton. Burgeoning Belgians!”

Football pundit Gary Lineker is suitably impressed by Kevin Mirallas - one of a growing number of Belgains to be playing in the Premier League.

“Thanks for all the follows & messages. Off to a school in Enfield today for @SpursOfficial 's Foundation. Great work the club is doing”

And Twitter new-boy Gareth Bale shows his charitable side. How long till people beg him for retweets?
