10 Things We Learned From Premier League Week 4

  1. Jesus is God

    Gabriel Jesus looks as though he might actually justify Guardiola’s decision to start him ahead of Aguero earlier in the season. But, moreover, the entire Man City attack looked incredible this weekend. A new favourite for the 17/18 Premier League title?

  2. No defence for Liverpool

    As good as Man city were this weekend, Liverpool were equally as bad. There 4-0 win against Arsenal has only turned attention away from their weak back-line long enough for them not to sign Virgil Van Dijk. Klopp has work to do.

  3. Jose is still rattle-able

    The first signs of any Manchester United weakness and Jose doesn’t want to shake the hand of the opposing Manager – some things never change. Stoke are the first team to prove that Manchester United can be got at. An abundance of firepower won’t always cover a poor defence.

  1. Chelsea look hazardous

    The Premier League champions looked strong again away to Leicester. In typical Chelsea fashion, they showed resilience and ground out the result they needed. Even Eden Hazard made a cameo at the end, refusing to pass and skipping passed defenders as if they were ghosts.

  2. #WengerIn

    “Maybe we should give him the benefit of the doubt.” The bandwagon may have done a U-turn after Arsenal’s accomplished display, albeit against a struggling Bournemouth side. A positive result for the Gunners ahead of a big London Derby at Chelsea next weekend.

  3. Gross display settles Gulls

    A brace from Pascal Gross contributed to Brighton’s first points and goals in the Premier League. A much-needed display from the Sussex club. Chris Hughton will be a very relieved man and will be hoping Brighton go from strength to strength from here.

  4. Spurs good, Everton bad

    As a matter of absolute certainty, Harry Kane does not score Premier League goals in August. But since we’re in September now, the Spurs frontman decided he’d knock two in for good measure. After a sluggish start, Tottenham look like the side they were last season. For Everton the opposite: strong start, have been woeful against top-level opponents.

  5. De Boer war

    Frank de Boer looks like he has a fight on his hands to keep his job. The Dutchman has had a fairly generous start to the season when it comes to fixtures, but with his side not scoring a single point, nor a goal, fans favourite Roy Hodgson is being tipped to replace him. De Boer will have to redeem himself in the coming few weeks.

  6. Hornets are flying

    Watford could be the surprise package of the season. They are yet to lose this season and have made some great acquisitions recently (Cleverley, Chalobah, Richarlison). Their opening day 3-3 draw with Liverpool is looking less and less like a freak result as the weeks go by.

  7. Sanches swans around

    Indifferent: a word to best describe Renato Sanches’s debut for Swansea. At times the Bayern Munich loanee showed glimpses of why he is considered one of the best young talents in world football, but he has some serious adjusting to do to get up to the pace of the Premier League.
