Defending Champions Manchester City are top the table with 19 points after staying unbeaten in seven Premier League matches.
However, winning the title won’t be as easy as last time for Pep Guardiola’s men it seems, as the four sides immediately behind them on standings look quite good as well and have kept pace with the defending champions.
Liverpool look the most threatening and are only behind on goal difference, while Maurizio Sarri’s Chelsea have already garnered 17 points despite not fully coming to terms with their new manager’s style.
Below them, even after enduring a stuttering start, just four points separate Unai Emery’s Arsenal and Mauricio Pochettino’s Tottenham from City, and both look capable of catching up.
Following Liverpool’s draw with Chelsea, Arsenal now have the longest active winning streak in the Premier League:

It could be that Gallagher was being sarcastic, but Gooners won’t care. Check out the musician’s reply –
