We’re four games into the season now and things are starting to take shape. Some of those things have taken us by surprise, be that players scoring goals, players preventing goals, or GOAT contenders just casually returning to one of their former clubs. Here are 10 such eyebrow-raisers…
10) Odsonne Edouard
Scored more goals against Tottenham in 11 minutes than Manchester City, Wolves, Watford and his new Palace team-mates had managed in the previous 354 minutes. Probably won’t maintain a minutes-per-goal ratio in single figures but still. It’s quite a start, and far better than that absolute fraud who also rocked up on deadline day to far greater fanfare and is currently scoring goals at a miserable rate of just one every 45 minutes.
9) Demarai Gray . . .
