The Premier League returns after the international break and there are a lot of very interesting questions to be answered.
1. Will Danny Welbeck prove himself to be the best thing since sliced bread?
Manchester City v Arsenal
There's been plenty of column inches and web space dedicated to Arsenal's transfer deadline day signing from Manchester United and even before the striker has kicked a ball for Arsene Wenger's side he's been touted as the 'summer signing of the season'. Scoring twice on England duty when handed the central striker's role against Switzerland has already raised expectation levels at the Emirates with fans desperate for a proven goalscorer and even more so now in the absence of Olivier Giroud.
2. Can ‘New Wizard’ Garry Monk outwit the ‘Special One’?
Chelsea v Swansea
The Swansea manager is in the running for manager of the month for August after guiding the Swans to three wins out of three and their stunning start has not gone unnoticed outside of England and Wales with Italian newspaper La Gazzetta dello Sport going as far as to name Monk as one of the 'New Wizards' of Europe. Monk puts his new-found wizardry skills to the test at Stamford Bridge when he goes up against a master tactician in Jose Mourinho in the first of the season's top-of-the table clash.
3. Will Andrew Johnson dispel the myth players should never go back?
Crystal Palace v Burnley
The former England international won't as much be a new face in the Premier League but one that puts an end to the 'whatever happened to...' question. The 33-year-old (yes, I thought he was older too), makes his Selhurt Park return after an eight-year absence to assist new manager Neil Warnock on the sidelines and bolster his striking options. Johnson scored 85 goals in 160 appearances during his first spell with the club but couldn't prevent them from the drop and will be desperate not to suffer the same fate again.
4. Will Alan Pardew be collecting his P45 by the end of the weekend?
Southampton v Newcastle
A recent poll saw 85 per cent of Newcastle fans calling for Pardew to be kicked out. Anonymous supporters have established a website, sackpardew.com and unsurprisingly the former West Ham manager heads the Premier League sack race. It seems the only fan in Pardew's corner remains Mike Ashley...but for how much longer?
5. Will Leonardo Ulloa prove the steal of the season?
Stoke v Leicester
Leicester's punt on raiding the Championship for a leading man could turn out to be a masterstroke by Nigel Pearson. The Argentine has already chipped in with two goals since his £8m move from Derby - against Everton and Arsenal no less - and his work-rate, hunger and desire has made him an instant hero among the King Power faithful.
6. Will Erik Lamela break his Premier League duck?
Sunderland v Tottenham
Spurs' attacking midfielder scored his first goal for Argentina in a friendly against World Cup winners Germany during the international break and hopes are high the 22-year-old could now break his duck for Mauricio Pochettino's men at the Stadium of Light. Lamela has put an injury-hit campaign behind him to set up two goals in three starts this season but that elusive first league goal still awaits him.
7. Will Everton’s leaky defence hold out against the Baggies?
West Brom v Everton
Ten goals shipped in the opening three rounds is the last thing you'd expect from Everton's usually water-tight defence. Here is a team who had the third-best back line last season and comprise three of the four defenders used by Roy Hodgson for England against Switzerland in Stones, Baines and Jagielka (who was a second-half sub). Luckily for Roberto Martinez the goals have also been flying in at the other end which is great for the neutrals and Match of the Day producers.
8. What chance does Adam Lallana get of stealing limelight from Mario Balotelli?
Liverpool v Aston Villa
The cameras will all be focused on one player as Liverpool and Aston Villa head out of the tunnel at Anfield and it's unlikely to be £23m recruit Adam Lallana who is set to making his eagerly-awaited debut. While Brendan Rodgers can't wait to see his No 1 summer signing get his first piece of Premier League action, super Mario will be the main centre of attention as he makes his bow infront of the Kop as we wait to see what that cheeky chappy will get up to next.
9. What role for Wayne Rooney now?
Manchester United v QPR
Paul Scholes can't see how Rooney, Radamel Falcao and Robin van Persie can play in the same team - squeeze big-money signing Angel di Maria into the equation and Louis van Gaal has an intriguing decision to make. The Dutchman could opt for a 4-3-3 with Di Maria and Rooney inter-changing, however, on current form Van Persie might drop to the bench. Much could depend on Falcao's fitness, however. The Colombian might find himself used as a sub until he gets up to speed.
10. Will Hull become the league's biggest entertainers?
Hull v West Ham
Steve Bruce has one thing in common with Louis van Gaal, he equally has an array of exciting attackers and is ready to unleash his new trio against West Ham. Gastón Ramírez and Hatem Ben Arfa, are two extremely talented but also inconsistent attacking midfielders and could both play off fellow deadline day signing and Uruguayan striker Abel Hernández. Time will tell whether all three will combine but it's exciting times at the KC Stadium, the kind of excitement West Ham owners David Gold and David Sullivan will no doubt for envious of.
