After the international break, Premier League football was back on everyone’s mind and the second month quickly went by.

The statistics for this month shows that Chelsea’s Eden Hazard leads the top scorer tally with six goal as his impressive form has kept the blues in the top four.
On five goals each, the next top scorers are Sergio Aguero, Harry Kane & Aleksandar Mitrovic. Both Jose Holebas & Benjamin Mendy lead equally on most assists with four and Manchester City lead the overall goalscoring tally with 21 goals in total.
