Fine margins: Raheem Sterling celebrates hitting the target for Manchester City

After an absence of 100 days, football is back on the box. Games have a surreal look and take place in empty stadia, with piped-in fan noise adding a hint of what it used to be like.

However, it makes our current abnormal lives seem a little more normal, even if only the most die-hard fans will get overly excited.

Given that the English Premiership is a business more than a sport, it was inevitable that it would come back in some form. It must be difficult for the elite players to raise their games without fans in attendance, although some perennially disappointed supporters may feel their teams have always played in a less than entertaining manner.
