Blink and you missed it we are already 10% of the way throughout the 2019-20 Premier League season.
The most recent round of matches gave us masterclass performances in assault from Sergio Aguero and Jamie Vardy, although anxieties were exposed at leaders Liverpool.
BBC Sport takes a look at the weekend stats.
Liverpool are high in the table using a record also claimed that a clean sheet of the year to boot at Burnley – however Sadio Mane’s substitution provided the biggest talking point from the Reds‘ win.
The Senegal gestured to the bench because he had been withdrawn, seemingly irritated by Mohamed Salah’s choice to not pass to him when in space minutes before – with all the Egyptian’s sight of goal ultimately snuffed out from the home side.
However, was the response of a complaint that is broader of Mane?
By Salah along with Roberto Firmino, Liverpool have created a total of 178 opportunities for another – 59 each since the start of this 2017-18 year, together with Mane producing the 60.
At first glance, this seems to demonstrate a pretty even split one of the trio – but nearly a quarter of their total were Mane providing an opening to Salah (43).
For Mane , back-to-back Premier League Golden Boot winner Salah has created only 25 opportunities by comparison, compared to 34 for Firmino.
Statistics also indicate the Brazilian forwards marginally favours selecting out Salah (33 opportunities ) over Mane (26).
More than Etihad Stadium, it was the Sergio Aguero show as the all time leading goalscorer of Manchester City struck at his 169th and 170th Premier League targets in the winners‘ 4-0 win.
The Argentine was attracted by it to over one of a century of home league targets within his home ground.
Just Thierry Henry in Highbury (114) and Wayne Rooney at Old Trafford (101) have scored more in a single place in Premier League history.
After opening the scoring for the hosts just 68 minutes after referee Jonathan Moss had blown for kick-off Aguero’s initially was set up by kevin de Bruyne from the Seagulls.
It’ll come as little surprise that the Belgian’s end was the fastest of the Premier League season – but it added to the winners‘ remarkable tally of fast objectives.
Since the start of last season, City have struck 13 days at the opening 10 minutes of matches, six before Liverpool, Everton and Tottenham (seven) in combined second on the record.
Jamie Vardy scored two and made another as Brendan Rodgers‘ Leicester City climbed into third in the formative Premier League table with a 3-1 home win over Bournemouth.
The scoring was started by the former England international evoked memories of his club’s 2015-16 title season as he – taking a touch after rushing on to a ball.
After scoring in the Foxes‘ 2-1 win in Sheffield United last weekend, then it means Vardy has been directly engaged with 14 goals in 14 Premier League matches beneath Rodgers (12 goals, two assists).
And Vardy’s successful form below boss and the Liverpool elevates him into an exclusive collection of Premier League players to have notched at least one goal or assist under a manager per match.
But it’s not Rodgers‘ only look, together with his direction of Luis Suarez in Anfield yielding a gorgeous return of 1.08 objects or assists per match in 66 league matches.
Frank Lampard called the Chelsea beginning 11 in the Premier League age in Saturday’s 2-2 draw with Sheffield United.
The Blues facet, which watched a two-goal lead slip had an average age of 24 years and 158 days.
But, while the west London club’s await a first home league win goes on, the goalscoring form of Tammy Abraham continued.
Even with no 21-year-old’s two goals from the Blades, he has scored over any other English player at the top two tiers since the start of last season (like play-offs).
A tally of 30 goals at the time – like 26 in Aston Villa’s 2018-19 advertising – places him well ahead of senior England internationals Raheem Sterling (22) and Harry Kane (19).
National boss Gareth Southgate overlooked Abraham in his group for the month Euro 2020 qualifying matches against Bulgaria and Kosovo – but will be not able to resist him because of his second squad in October when he keeps his form.
