The top 5 best attacking duos in the Premier League in the month of September

The Premier League's latest round of matches were played across different venues over the weekend.

With October's fixtures already kick-started, here are the top 5 best attacking duos in the league during the month of September.

1. Abdoulayé Doucouré and Demarai Gray (Everton)

Abdoulayé Doucouré and Demarai Gray did form a partnership that yielded 2 goals in September.

Doucouré first supplied an assist for Gray against Burnley before the latter repaid the favour in the match against Norwich at the end of the month.

2. Jamie Vardy and Youri Tielemans (Leicester City)

Youri Tielemans was Jamie Vardy's supplier-in-chief as the Belgian supplied 2 goals for the Englishman last month.

The fist was in the Foxes' 2-1 loss to Brighton in the middle of the month while the second was in the 2-2 draw with Burnley at the end of the month.

3. Josh King and Ismaila Sarr (Watford)

Josh King and Ismaila Sarr partnered for 2 goals in the month of September with the former being the provider on both occasions.

The first was for Watford's second goal against Norwich in the second match of the month while the second was for the Hornets' equaliser against Newcastle in the third and final match of September.

4. Conor Gallagher and Wilfred Zaha (Crystal Palace)

Conor Gallagher and Wilfred Zaha forged a good partnership in September with the former having a hand in 2 goals for the latter.

Gallagher assisted Zaha's goal in the 3-0 demolition of Tottenham before winning the penalty which the Ivory Coast international converted against Brighton in the last PL game of September.

5. Emile Smith Rowe and Bukayo Saka (Arsenal)

Arsenal were the only team to enjoy a 100% record in September and the understanding between academy products, Emile Smith Rowe and Bukayo Saka went a great deal in their success last month.

It was in the match against Tottenham that the combination of the duo was most effective. Saka provided the assist for Smith Rowe's opener against Spurs. Smith Rowe turned provider as his pass set Saka on the way to his goal in the game.

Saka's goal was not officially credited as Smith Rowe's assist due to a touch by a Tottenham defender as Saka tried to dribble through. However, Smith Rowe's pass opened up the chance in the first place for Saka.
