English Premier League, EPL, is considered the most competitive league in the world. It’s difficult to predict who would win the league. However, for the last five seasons, Manchester City have won four titles, while Liverpool won the remaining one. But, can Man City or Liverpool win this season? Or a new team will win the title? Here we will analyze the top five teams that may win the league title.
Compared to the previous few seasons, Arsenal are the most improved team in the English Premier League this season. They were out of the top four in the last six seasons. But Arsenal’s manager Mikel Arteta has changed the club immensely.
They have had a fantastic pre-season. Moreover, Arsenal have won the first five games this season. But Manchester United have ended Arsenal’s winning run in their 6th game. Despite losing the match, Arsenal are still at the top of the table with 15 points. In addition, Gabriel Jesus and Martinelli are in superb form. New signing Gabriel Jesus has already scored three goals and got three assist for Arsenal. With their excellent form, Arsenal fans are hoping for a title this year.
Tottenham Hotspur have been playing brilliantly since Antonio Conte took charge of the team last season. The Spurs haven’t lost any game so far. After playing six matches in the league, Tottenham Hotspur have won four and tied the remaining two.
However, Tottenham are in 3rd place with 14 points, just one point behind the table topper. Tottenham’s biggest trump card is England’s forward Harry Kane. The English striker has already netted five goals in six matches. He could play a crucial role in winning the title.
It’s too early to consider Manchester United as the title contender. But new manager Erik Ten Hag has done a brilliant job in the transfer window as he signed five world-class players for Man United. Although Manchester United lost the first two matches, they made a U-turn in the league. The Red Devils are unbeaten in the four successive games. In those matches, Man United defeated Liverpool, Arsenal, Leicester City, and Southampton FC.
Liverpool have had the most unexpected start to this season. After playing six games, the Klopp boys won only two. They lost against Manchester United, and the remaining three have been drawn. They are suffering for their midfield. But Jurgen Klopp can change the team at any time. A team can easily be a title contender if they have players like Mohammad Salah, Luis Diaz, and Van Dijk. So, Liverpool are still in the race.
Manchester City are probably the most favorite team to win the title. All the players are in superb form. Especially, Erling Haaland and Kevin de Bruyne are playing like a beast. Summer signing Erling Haaland has already scored ten goals in the first six matches for the Citizens. At the same time, Kevin de Bruyne already assisted in four goals so far. Manchester City have a high chance of lifting the league trophy once again as the most balanced team in the EPL.
