- New players tend to settle in during the second season after joining a new club.
- Kaizer Chiefs are yet to sign at least one more striker before September 22.
- Coach Zwane is yet to find his best starting 11.
- The starting team will soon help to form the appropriate playing squad.
- The new existing four-back defense needs more plays to understand each other.
- Every opponent gives 100% at this stage of the season until the quality of the team starts to show later on.
- Zwane is still developing as a PSL head coach.
