Could there actually be too much football this September!?

Can there ever be too much football? Some of you may disagree, but September seems unusually relentless in that department.

A graphic representation of Premier League team involvement in September

The above graphic shows that there are just three days between September 10 and September 30 when Premier League clubs are not in action.

After a week of Premier League and European action, Chelsea v Liverpool tonight marks the seventh consecutive day that a Premier League side has been involved in a football match, with the weekend’s action taking us to nine consecutive days.

From there it’s EFL Cup time on Tuesday and Wednesday night, and a Thursday and Friday off, before three days of Premier League action, three days of European football, and another instalment of Friday Night Football to round the month off.

And as international week rolls around, the Premier League clubs may stop, but the football rolls on.

Could it actually be a football overload? Or can you never have enough live games?
