The Premier League takes a two-week break as international football returns with a rare triple-header for the British nations.

Here, the PA news agency takes a look at the winners and losers of the Premier League season so far.



Four straight wins, 12 goals scored and top of the table – the blue half of Merseyside have bagged the early-season bragging rights over their Liverpool neighbours in making their best start since 1894. Carlo Ancelotti has overseen a Goodison Park revolution, with summer signings Abdoulaye Doucoure, Allan and James Rodriguez all hitting the ground running. Dominic Calvert-Lewin has scored six goals to win an England call-up, while one of the only concerns has been the form of goalkeeper Jordan Pickford.
