In the first few weeks Maurizio Sarri has taken Chelsea to the top of the Premier League with 4 wins from 4, scoring 10 goals and only conceding 3. The team have set their stall out to be contenders for the title come May. With players such as Willian and Pedro in fine form as well as Hazard and others they will be looking to continue winning when the Premier League starts again.
Another team which has a perfect record and sits number 1 in the league is Juergen Klopp’s Liverpool team. They have have scored 9 goals and only conceded one. Whilst the team has won 4 games, the major attacking force of Firmino, Mane and Salah have not actully hit full form. With this, the Liverpool FC fans will be hoping that once they do start scoring they will become serious contenders for the league.
The biggest surprise to the start of the Premier League season is Watford winning 4 of 4 matches. The biggest win came last week when they beat Tottenham Hotspur after going down 2-0.
Losers So Far
The break has come at a good time for several teams in the Premier League, especially the following two teams.
Jose Mourinho is a manager under pressure to win games and with the team sitting in 10th position winning 2 and losing 2 games. The biggest disappointment was probably not the defeat to Brighton and Hove Albion 3-1 it was the manner they lost 3-0 at home in Manchester to Tottenham Hotspur. This break will give the players and team time to reassess how they go ahead to compete with the top team.
West Ham United
The biggest losers to the first 4 games are London team West Ham United, losing 4 consecutive games sitting bottom having only scored 2 goals. The team have been beaten to Liverpool, Bournemouth, Arsenal and Wolves to start the campaign. The biggest surprise is that the hammers invested heavily in the transfer period over summer and have yet to win to a game.
