Many  — including football betting tips websites — would say that Chelsea, Manchester City, Arsenal and Liverpool are real contenders for the top four, but this is the EPL where anything can happen.

We are accustomed to seeing Arsenal never missing top four, but we ought to remember that Mourinho and Pochettino are side by side waiting to pounce.


Statement of intent

Liverpool began the season beating both Arsenal and Chelsea respectively, this was a statement of intent to all big guns that they are going for the title.  

Right now, they are at the top of table with 26 points from 11 games. Let’s see what will next time the league returns.

After succumbing to both Liverpool and Arsenal, Chelsea were written off by many pundits.

Now they have taken everybody by surprise since losing 3-0 to Arsenal. We saw a change of formation from 4-1-4-1 to a grand master 3-4-3 which has helped them keep five clean sheets consecutively.

Now, they have 25 points and are second in the league.
