The Premier League season is about to resume but we can barely remember what happened from August until March.

So we went back to September and boy, it was good.


The headlines

Upsets, comebacks and unpredictability

Newly-promoted Norwich delivered the shock of the season with a deserved 3-2 win over reigning champions Manchester City.

Elsewhere, Watford, fresh from being the first club to sack their coach (bye, Javi Gracia!), held Arsenal to a 2-2 draw under Quique Sanchez Flores.

The new manager boost didn’t last long as they conceded eight to Pep Guardiola’s side, angry from their Carrow Road disappointment, a week later.

Meanwhile, stuttering Arsenal came from behind with 10 men to beat Aston Villa. Proper Barclays.

Liverpool make it seven wins from seven

Newcastle, Chelsea, Sheffield United. Liverpool played three more teams, won three more games, and enjoyed a five point lead at the top of the table by the end of the month.

Solsjkaer’s men don’t entertain

Manchester United scored just twice – the fewest in the league – in three outings in September, beating Leicester, losing to West Ham, drawing with Arsenal. Who needs consistency?
