This past month saw most clubs in action in the English top-flight just 3 times, due to a lengthy international break, and cup commitments.

Nevertheless, it proved a crucial one in the race for the title, as Liverpool continued their perfect early-season form to make it 7 wins from 7.

Champions Manchester City sit 5 points adrift of the Reds in 2nd.

At the other end of the table, meanwhile, Watford’s struggles continued throughout September, with the Hornets propping up the table with just 2 points from their opening 7 fixtures.
