JUST THE JOB WITH ROB
Robinho has been taken off in both of City's matches, which shows that Mark Hughes is doing the right thing and concentrating on results not reputations. It will have helped to clinch back-to-back wins and two clean sheets.
Look out for Tom Huddlestone, who is enjoying an excellent start to the season. There aren't many better two-footed passers in the League and, as well as a place at Spurs, he might get an England look-in.
TAKING CARE OF TOON
It must be the most uncomfortable role because you know somebody else will take over soon, but Chris Hughton (right) deserves praise for his caretaking at Newcastle. Three wins, despite chaos.
William Gallas has three goals this season, but that's not how he will be judged by his manager this season. Arsene Wenger will need his experienced France defender to keep his head and not go off the rails.
THE NEW DIDIER?
Sunderland's Kenwyne Jones
Kenwyne Jones (right) can be a real powerhouse striker. Magnificent spring and age is on his side, but if he is to become another Drogba he needs to find that ferocious aggression. He can be too laidback.
HULL OF A RESULT
It won't have had many of us rushing to watch Sky's Football First, but Hull's 1-0 win against Bolton was one of the more significant results of the weekend. Phil Brown is a good manager and deserves that result.
ROON AT THE TOP
is going to have a special season. I'm backing him for Footballer of the Year, if he can avoid injury. He will thrive on the absence of Ronaldo and his 100 goals for United are only the start. He'll get 20 this season.
