35 goals, Manchester United back to the top of the table, Daniel Sturridge returns to scoring ways, an Alexis Sanchez hat-trick, Chelsea still unable to wake up from their summer slumber… WHAT. A. DAY.
Although we’ve pretty much summed it up in the opening paragraph, we’ll go into more detail. A shock loss at Spurs for Manchester City – in which Harry Kane found the net – opened the door for Manchester United to go top of the table with a win against Sunderland. Routine. Louis van Gaal’s men put three past the hapless Black Cats, while elsewhere the goals just flew in. Sturridge got to wiggle his arms twice as Liverpool eased the pressure on a beleaguered Brendan Rodgers with a 3-2 home win over Aston Villa, while Arsenal bust the Leicester bubble with a thumping 5-2 victory. Both Olivier Giroud and Theo Walcott scored, which is sure to give Arsene Wenger a headache.
There was much, much, much more going on, and Twitter was once again in tip top form… here are some of the best moments from a great day of footy!
