On the 4th October 2013 what were the stories that dominated the football landscape? Including Arsenal, Liverpool and Manchester United.

Let's cast our eyes back to this exact day, the 4th October 2014, but a year earlier.

What were the main tales from that day? What big events were happening in Premier League football?

Here are some of the big scoops from the 4th October 2013…

No smoke without fire

It is a year today that Jack Wilshere was caught smoking by the British press. He was caught having a puff during a night out and it was not something that went down well with Arsene Wenger.

Wenger told his Friday press conference:

"I don't know really what happened [with Jack], I will need to have a chat with him about that. I disagree completely with that behaviour. There are two things; first of all when you are a football player you are an example, and as well you don't do what damages your health."

Wilshere subsequently apologised and said it would not happen again. In July of this year he was again snapped partaking in the bad habit.

Nice one Jack.

You know you want Roo?

Zlatan Ibrahimovic was trying to get a Manchester United player to join him in Paris. The Paris Saint-Germain striker was speaking about Wayne Rooney as speculation over his future continued to rumble on.

And the Swede said he should consider joining him at the big-spenders:

"When there was talk of Rooney joining us in Paris it was a prospect that excited me.

"If he still wants to move next summer, or in January, I would urge him to come and play with me in Paris. The only direction this club is going is up."

"If he did join he would have to get used to the fact that Zlatan scores even better goals than him. But I don't just want to play with great players, I want to play with technically great players - and that is what he is."

Rooney is now of course United's captain and signed a new deal last season.

King Kenny returns

Kenny Dalglish returned to Liverpool. The club legend joined as a non-executive board director in a move from Fenway Sports Group to further win around the support of the Liverpool faithful.

Dalglish said of the decision to take the role:

"It is an honour and privilege to be asked to return to Liverpool as a director of the club. I have always said if there is anything I could do to help this club I would make myself available - when the call came I had no hesitation."

King Kenny indeed.
