For all the talk of Ozil needing pace to be able to make the most of his creative abilities, given his current form and inability to do the small things properly, the return of Walcott could - perhaps should - see Ozil lose his starting place.
When Filipe Luis signed for Chelsea over the summer, some felt it was time for Branislav Ivanovic to revert to centre-back, with César Azpilizueta moving to his favoured role on the right. However, three games into the Premier League season and Ivanovic has once more shown why he is the Blues' starting right-back.
The early incomings at Villa Park were largely ridiculed but after three matches a number of those have made a real impact, along with some of those that had been previously cut adrift. The later additions of Carlos Sanchez and Tom Cleverley were certainly more eye-catching, adding options to an area where Villa could be labelled a little one-dimensional.
Young Harry Kane always scores. That's what you found yourself thinking when he came off the bench with Spurs cruising at 2-1 against Sunderland on Saturday. Then he did, in the wrong net, to present Sunderland with one of the most undeserved points in their long history.
The talk at the start of the season was that Everton had done the best summer business they possibly could have done - possibly the smartest in the league. They were, it was said, serious top four contenders and they'd trouble the best sides over and over again. After three games, they've reached the lofty heights of 17th in the Premier League.
Manchester United fans' initial displeasure at an apparent lack of transfer activity over the summer to fix a clearly broken squad was quickly reversed in the final two weeks of the window. Marcos Rojo and Daley Blind arrived for the relatively modest fees of £16m and £14m respectively, but the British record signing of Angel Di Maria from Real Madrid really got people talking.
If I get my job right, one day the Women's Sport and Fitness Foundation won't need to exist, because we'll have achieved full gender equity for the sector. That day isn't here yet, but we're working towards it and the partnerships and collaborations we form will help us get there.
It is rare for a player to establish himself quite so firmly at Kramer's age. He enjoyed debut campaign in the big time at the age of 22 and was quickly deemed a first-teamer, before going on to make the squad for his national team at a major tournament, all in the same year.
Players are lacing up their boots with rainbow-coloured laces as part of an anti-homophobia in football campaign. Will this end the homophobia that sports men and women face overnight? No, I doubt that. But is it an important symbol? Yes I think it is.
England go off to the Euros and rather than the media being overly optimistic or pessimistic they choose a new tack of just focusing on it being the youngest England squad ever. Alan Hansen's famous comment "you can't win anything with kids" is reiterated thousands of times. Unfortunately, in this case the Scot is right as another quarter-final exit beckons.
Roy Hodgson seems to have forgotten the basics this week. Attacking the newspapers when they are looking for the headline - however outrageous they may be - is an own goal. He needs to fill the void by giving this hungry mob the food they require. And he should not have been deterred from his line of thinking whatever the provocation.
So here we are again; downbeat, un-romanced and underwhelmed by our nation's football team... Shit at the Euros; Shit in World Cup Qualifiers, Shit at the World Cup. Uncle Roy needs to go, and he needs to go now.
Tottenham's spending spree last summer had a number of players fearing for their future at White Hart Lane... One player somewhat forgotten about in the mayhem was midfielder Gylfi Sigurdsson... yet despite making 58 league appearances during his two-year spell in north London, the 24-year-old never really established himself as a first-team regular.
You have spent £150million in a transfer window, won no competitive games as of yet, saw three of your four top defenders leave and decide to bring replacements in at the last minute, and lose 4-0 in a cup game to a League One side - good luck Van Gaal.
The first 'month' of the Premier League season is over and it's fair to say there have already been a number of surprises. The least shocking outcome from the three matches thus far, perhaps, sees favourites prior to the season Chelsea sitting pretty at the top.
Balotelli sounds like the perfect replacement for Suarez, but it's his on-the-pitch attitude that will lead to him coming up short in replacing the Uruguayan in Scouse hearts... For all his teething problems and penchant for diving, you never hear the word "lazy" and "Luis Suarez" in the same sentence.
