Premier League International break results: Title race, relegation candidates and golden boot contenders!
Liverpool closed with an impressive point away to Manchester City.
Southampton went top on Friday only to be displaced by Tottenham after Harry Kane’s late goal at West Brom on Sunday. But the draw at the Etihad Stadium means Leicester lead the way after their win over Wolves.
Liverpool only one point off top spot, Jurgen Klopp’s side remain well placed to defend the title after Mohamed Salah’s early penalty.
Liverpool have responded well to that 7-2 defeat to Aston Villa. But the chances of doing so are surely increased by Virgil van Dijk’s injury, and they have conceded more goals than Sheffield United.
Manchester City were beaten 5-2 at home to Leicester and three wins from seven games represents their worst start to a Premier League season in over a decade.
Chelsea have two wins from six games but the arrival of new goalkeeper Edouard Mendy has coincided with a run of one goal conceded in seven games in all competitions. Frank Lampard’s side have scored at least three goals in each of their last four games.
Tottenham are even closer, only a point adrift of Leicester and on the longest unbeaten run.
Leicester is the only team to win six games so far.
Arsenal finished outside that group last season and they find themselves in the bottom half as it stands.
Brighton might be regarded as upwardly mobile but Fulham, the other team just above the drop, will know that they need to improve.
West Brom have shown fight but have dropped points late on and face question marks over their quality.
Burnley and Sheffield United are fresh from top-half finishes but have not replicated that form since the restart.
Jamie Vardy is mounting a strong defence of the Premier League golden boot. His penalty against Wolves moved him level with Heung-Min Son and Dominic Calvert-Lewin on eight goals.
Mohamed Salah joined the trio with a penalty of his own against Manchester City and with Harry Kane just one behind them on seven after his winner at West Brom.
Leeds’ Patrick Bamford has scored seven already, while Ollie Watkins and Callum Wilson have six for Aston Villa and Newcastle respectively
Leaders Leicester are up against champions at Anfield, while Tottenham face Manchester City live on Sky Sports in the early evening kick-off on Saturday November 21.
Super Sunday sees Sheffield United look to kickstart their campaign with a victory over West Ham at Bramall Lane before Leeds look to overtake Arsenal with a win at Elland Road.
