The first month of the 2017/18 season has sped passed us so quickly that for once we could say the International break came to our rescue, helping to manage the pulsating nature of the league so far. Just like last season Manchester United have a 100% record from their first three games, but we still have a very long way to go so Manchester United fans don’t get too excited.
I must say that the surprise package so far has to be Huddersfield Town, newly promoted but playing like Premier League royalty, seven points from a possible nine has made everyone take notice of the Yorkshire club leading to most changing their minds on them been spot on relegation candidates. If we were to mention disappointments thus far, you would be right if your focus narrowed its sight to London; Crystal Palace and West Ham have been hugely disappointing, little wonder both managers are odds on favorites to get the sack first this season.
To the players generally, you can not look beyond Ahmed Hegazi as your best newcomer so far and Henrik Mkhitarayan is the standout player in the league as a whole so far; here are the players that make the cut for the month of August in a 3-4-3 formation:
Manager of the Month : David Wagner
Player of the Month: Henrik Mkhitarayan
Newbie of the Month: Ahmed Hegazi
