Here are the dates for the international breaks during the season.

International Breaks in the 2019-20 Premier League Season.

An international break is simply a weekend when all the domestic leagues take a week off to let players go home and play for their various national teams.

Man City and Liverpool.

Last season’s top two sides continue to set the pace at the top of the Premier League. Liverpool already proving they are a level above the competition.

Pep Guardiola’s side may have dropped two points already, after their late winner against Tottenham was controversial. Liverpool have just set a new club record with 13 straight Premier League wins but they have to go unbeaten to stop Manchester City from claiming a third successive title.

VAR.

VAR has been used in the Premier League for the first time this season and it has not come without controversy. Officials admitted that they missed a handball before Newcastle’s equalizer against Watford, which shows it is still not immune from human error. VAR is highlighting how the laws of the game need changing which will benefit football in the long run.

The race for the top.

The top two but the remaining Champions League places are up for grabs. Tottenham have strengthened their squad and are likely to keep Christian Eriksen until at least January.

Frank Lampard has a tough job of getting Chelsea into the Champions League places with the loss of Eden Hazard and currently banned from signing players.

Manchester United did a very good job on their first two home matches being a 4-0 win against Chelsea and then a 2-1 defeat to Crystal Palace.

There is also the outside chance of both Everton or Leicester breaking into that top six stronghold.

Arsenal have signed well during the transfer window but some players could leave before the end of the European transfer window to leave them short of squad depth.

For the Premier League, the most-watched league in the world, this just means no games these weekends:

  • September 7
  • October 12
  • November 16
  • March 28

There will be other weekends with no Premier League games, mainly for the FA Cup, starting in January.

Sergio Aguero Premier League legacy

The Argentinian striker leads the way with six goals in the first four games. His numbers in the Premier League are astounding and he could move into the top three all-time scorers this season.

The 31-year-old is currently sixth on 170 goals behind Thierry Henry (175) and Frank Lampard (177).
