Premier League sides are still getting used to the condensed schedule, it seems, and we are seeing a compelling - and different - table as a result.

Leicester City, no strangers to being out in front, sit atop the table with 18 points from their eight matches so far. Jamie Vardy is consistently scoring, and they head into the international break as the team to beat.

Tottenham would likely have been clear at the summit if the capitulation against West Ham, where they were 3-0 up with eight minutes remaining only to draw 3-3, hadn't happened. By they are in a good spot, alongside Liverpool, who haven't always convinced but are still very much in contention.

And Southampton are just in behind them. It's been quite the year since they were beaten 9-0 by the team top of the table, and the turnaround in their fortunes has been fascinating to watch.

At the opposite end of the table, Sheffield United, Burnley and West Brom are still searching for their first win and it's hard to see where it's going to come from at the moment, but the aren't cut adrift. Fulham are only a point clear and while Brighton have played well, their results aren't showing it - yet.

Premier League Top Scorers

Jamir Vardy is out in front in the scoring charts, picking up where he left off last season - though he has had the benefit of slotting home from the penalty spot five times in his eight strikes.

But he is level in the top position with three other players who have also struck eight in their opening outings. Mo Salah's goal against Manchester City was his fourth penalty of the season.

Meanwhile Heung Min-Son and Dominic Calvert-Lewin have struck eight times without the need for a penalty. Indeed, Son's 1.12 non-penalty goals P90 is by far the highest rate in the division and, arguably, a far more impressive number than either Vardy or Salah.

DCL is second-best, with a 1.02 non-penalty goals P90 rate. On seven goals is Harry Kane and Patrick Bamford, with the latter even more frustrated that his effort disallowed at Crystal Palace wasn't allowed to stand.
