Proper football is back. Domestic football I mean. This week round of matches was a spectacular one with close calls, missed penalties, ...
The Premier League is here for a while before another international break but before we go off talking a lot, quickly here are five things we learnt from the premier league this weekend.
Walcott Chasing His Future At Emirates.
The man who people sometimes refer to him as the oldest potential player is finally delivering the goods for his club.
Theo Walcott is absolutely on fire and everything he touches seems to be gold apart from his last attempt at a hattrick against Swansea.
|Five Goals In Eight Matches For The Gunners Winger/Right Midfielder/Forward|
Theo has scored exactly five goals in his last three seasons with Arsenal, but just 8 games in with 30 to go, he has scored five and not looking to slow down.
Success Justifies Starting Line-up.
He might be getting a lot of jokes about his age but only one thing mattered to Isaac in the game against Middlesborough- to prove the decision to start him right, and he certainly did that.
|60% of Duels Won, 5 Fouls Won, 6 Gained Possessions, Four Dribble Attempts...One MoTM|
It was the first time in 23 games Ighalo would see the seat. Success definitely looked to have his name in contention next game with a performance that saw him walk away with the MoTM award.
Big Fighting Spirit At Tottenham.
Tottenham's win over City means they are the only side in the top-flight yet to taste defeat coming into this clash. Spurs have not lost at The Hawthorns in their last six visits and were not ready to do so with a late minute equalizer from Dele Alli ensuring they remain undefeated.

Tottenham need Harry Kane back for his goal-scoring prowess but there is no lack of fighting spirit at the North London club.
Herrera Excelling In Role.
Ander Herrera has been one of Man Utd's standouts in a campaign that is looking to steady itself. A call-up to the national team more than sufficient recognition for the work he has put in.
The Spanish midfielder has found himself in a less creative role and operating at the base of a midfield pivot.
|The Red Devils' Midfielder Was Everywhere At Anfield|
The Spaniard put in a shift and while his compatriot in goal might have saved hell for the Red Devils, Herrera can be proud of his MOTM performances.
Boisterous, neat, and ready to get stuck in, Herrera's abilities are not limited to those, his passing ability is one to mention. Man Utd might even get more from him if he masters the art of timing forward runs especially when paired with an industrious-but-slower Fellaini.
Aguero Done For With Penalties.
Maarten Stekelenburg was a man on fire in the game against Man City saving two penalties to deny Pep a much needed three points. The main worry for Pep alongside trying to get wins under the belt would be whether to remove Aguero from penalty duties.

No way Pep would want to retain his spotkick services.
