Newcastle, Everton, Arsenal, Liverpool and Tottenham feature.
As the regular league season stops for the international break, Here Is The City look at five Premier League players who have impressed for their clubs so far this season.
Loic Remy (loan)
He was the only signing made by Newcastle United during the summer transfer window, but so far he is proving to be a very good one, especially having scored five goals in his last three Premier League games. He is only on loan and QPR may want him back if they return to the top flight so Newcastle may well have to stump up a decent fee to keep him in the North East.
Romelu Lukaku (loan)
Another signing on loan, but there is no question that he has bolstered Everton’s attack significantly. Everton seemed to be struggling a little in front of goal until he arrived and now they’re proving very difficult to shut out, partly because of his four goals in three Premier League starts. In many eyes Chelsea have been silly to let him go this season, but they may want him back at the end of his spell at Goodison.
Mesut Ozil (£42.4m)
There were pleas from many Arsenal fans for Arsene Wenger to spend some money, and he did that on deadline day by signing Mesut Ozil. So far he has been worth the £42m that has been paid for his services, and is living up to his tag of king of the assists.
Simon Mignolet (£9m)
Liverpool made several signings over the summer, but the two that look to have settled in the quickest have been Kolo Toure and Simon Mignolet. Mignolet gets the nod here because he has pulled off some top class saves since his arrival Sunderland – and has had to fill the boots (and gloves) of the very popular Pepe Reina at Anfield. There’s still some work to do for him, but he has made a promising start and has at times saved Liverpool’s skin.
Christian Eriksen (£11m)
Tottenham had quite the spending spree over the summer, but one of their shrewdest pieces of business so far seems to be the signing of Eriksen from Ajax. At the age of 21 he has a lot of years ahead of him but seems to be a very good player technically that plays with a mature head on his shoulders.
