Toulouse began the season in incredible fashion, winning every game they played in during August. In their first match, Toulouse made the most of their set pieces with Etienne Didot scoring from a free kick and then setting up Dragos Grigore from the same situation to give them a 2-0 victory.
Next they defeated FC Metz, Valenciennes and Stade Rennais in impressive fashion with Wissam Ben Yedder scoring a brace in all three matches. To finish the month, youngster Quentin Boisgard scored in the 90th minute to seal a late victory for Toulouse against En Avant de Guingamp.
Despite performing amazingly last season, WIssam Ben Yedder appears to have taken his game to yet another level after putting together an amazing month of football. The 26-year-old has scored seven goals in five appearances to start this season including braces against FC Metz, Stade Rennais and Valenciennes.
Ben Yedder currently sits on top of the list of top goalscorers in Ligue 1 with Gaetan Courtet of AS Saint-Etienne and Grejohn Kyei of Stade de Reims currently both three goals behind with four each.
Toulouse find themselves alone at the top of the Ligue 1 table after a perfect start to the season, Paris Saint-Germain aren’t too far behind and are strong favourites to win the competition. A number of the traditionally strong teams find themselves in the top half of the table but it will take a few months to see where all the teams stand amongst each other.
At the bottom half of the table, the surprise packets from last year FC Nantes find themselves off to a poor start, they will have a lot of pressure placed on them as they get deeper into the season with the side competing in the UEFA Champions League. Montpellier HSC are also struggling early, manager Zinedine Zidane will be hoping things turn around sooner rather than later.
In managerial news, Laurent Blanc has moved to Barcelona after Luis Enrique accepted the offer to manage Spain. Replacing Blanc at Paris Saint-Germain is Roberto Mancini who has spent big ahead of the new season.
Etienne Didot went down with a torn hamstring in the match against Valenciennes, an injury which is set to see him miss two to three months of action. It is undecided as to who will come into replacing him during this period with a number of options being considered by Toulouse manager Dominic Arribage.
During the fixture against Valenciennes, Oscar Trejo suffered a back strain which forced him off the field. Trejo missed the rest of the month and is still expected to miss another week of action, it is expected to be touch and go as to whether he will be able to return in time for the fixture against Angers SCO.
After the interntational break at the start of the month, Toulouse find a heavy schedule ahead of themselves as they look to maintain their good start to the Ligue 1 and begin their UEFA Europa League campaign.
Toulouse begin the month with three home fixtures in a row with two Ligue 1 fixtures against Angers SCO and ESTAC Troyes being separated by a UEFA Europa League fixture against Standard Liege. Next they travel to face AS Monaco who have impressed so far this season followed by an away fixture against AS Saint-Etienne. Toulouse then travel to Denmark to battle FC Kobenhavn in the UEFA Europa League to finish the month.
