The Premier League season so far
There have been eight matches played in the Premier League
season so far and it has given us an idea of what is to come. Liverpool have won all eight games so far and have won 17 matches in a row now. They are one off the record set by Manchester City two seasons ago and they are the team to beat this season. They are looking like a team of Champions and this could finally be the year that they win that elusive first Premier League title.
City have already lost twice and drawn once meaning that they are eight points behind Liverpool and even though it is still very early in the campaign, this is the biggest ever gap at this point in the season. City will be hoping that Liverpool drop some points before they meet on the 10th of November for their crunch match.
Elsewhere, Chelsea had the worst possible start to the season, losing 4-0 on the opening day to Manchester United and then drawing to Leicester. However, since then they have only lost to Liverpool and have climbed the table into fifth place. Their transfer ban looks like it could have been a blessing in disguise as their young players have been given a chance and they have shone. The two most notable ones as Mount and Abraham who have been tremendous this season.
Leicester have also been very impressive this season under Rodgers and look the most likely to break into the top six. They have only lost to Manchester United and Liverpool so far and are looking like a very strong side.
Arsenal are in third place and have been decent, but they have not been able to beat any of their “top 6” rivals yet, drawing two and losing one. It is no question that their attack is very strong, but it is yet to be seen if their defence has improved at all since last season.
Spurs and Manchester United have both been pretty poor this season and sit in 9th and 12th respectively. This is worrying times for Pochettino and Solskjaer, who will both be worried about their positions.
From the three promoted teams Norwich started the best from them and even beat the Champions City, but since then have moved into the relegation zone. Aston Villa and Sheffield United have both been better than expected but a few bad results could mean that they are back in the relegation zone.
