The Premier League is well and truly up and running, and while there are familiar names towards both the top and the bottom of the division, it’s always interesting to sit back and have a look at how everyone is faring after just six games. After all, that’s always been viewed as the ‘benchmark’ for the ‘start’ of the season, and now, we should be able to have a good idea of every team’s ambitions for the campaign ahead.
At the top we’ve got the usual suspects, but beyond the top six or eight there are three that stand out: Liverpool, Chelsea and Manchester City. While the reigning champions and the Reds were expected to do well throughout the campaign, few could’ve anticipated that the Blues would click as soon as they have done. Of course, Maurizio Sarri won’t worry too much about that, as his side appear to be going from strength to strength.
In terms of the overall title race, it already feels like these three are the only realistic contenders, and we aren’t just saying that because they’re the only remaining unbeaten clubs in the league. With 16 wins and two draws between them throughout the course of their collective 18 games, it really does seem like they’re on a different level to the likes of Tottenham Hotspur, Arsenal and Manchester United, which is a great sign for English football.
This kind of competitive title race brings more eyes to the product, it creates an intensity that lasts all the way through until May, and it gives the other 17 clubs in the division someone to chase. Given how dominant they’ve all been already we can’t wait to see how different sides cope with facing them, and we’d put money on this going down to the final day.
