The Premier League season has now been going on for about a month and some teams have already started to stand out as pioneers of the trophy, and others have started the season in bad shape. Liverpool, Chelsea and Manchester City all look like teams that can win the title, while Manchester United and Arsenal do not look very good.
The team that has looked the best so far is Liverpool. After the successful run last season in the Champion & # 39; s League and fourth in the Premier League, they look like a team ready to win.
Liverpool's biggest weaknesses last season were their goalkeeper and defense at the start of the season for their transfer for Virgil Van Dijk from Southampton in December. They relieved their weakness in the goalkeeper position by getting Alisson Becker, the former AS Roma and Brazilian national team keeper. Becker has only allowed one goal this season, which is great compared to how terrible Liverpool's defense last season was.
Their attack has also become astonishingly better. They still have one of the top three players to attack the ball with Mohamed Salah, Roberto Firmino and Sadio Mané, but they were able to make their midfield better by getting Naby Keita in the off-season, who helped the midfield get the ball to their playmakers. get faster and more effective.
Liverpool is my choice to win the Premier League and I think that by the end of the season the Liverpool League trophy will be hoisted, apart from a catastrophically bad shape or an injury to a major player.
Another team that could win the title very well is the defending champion of the Premier League, Manchester City of Pep Guardiola. Manchester City faced the Premier League last season, because the first team in the league ever had at least 100 points in the season. Guardiola's football style worked wonders with the players he had in the team, especially the midfielder of the star Kevin De Bruyne finally showed his true potential. However, this season has already started in a rocky way, where De Bruyne sustained an injury and will remain on his side until November.
The team still has sufficient offensive firepower to compete with the other Premier League teams, with Sergio Aguero, Raheem Sterling and Leroy Sané. Their defense is also great, with Kyle Walker as the star in the back. Manchester City again has a chance of winning the title, but it can be a bit more difficult this season.
The last team mentioned in the first paragraph was Chelsea and they are doing much better than I expected.
Their attack was great, because Eden Hazard has played as one of the best in the world, which he is. His game, as well as Willian and Jorginho, have helped Chelsea to score their goals.
Their defense has also played great and so far allowed only three goals in their first four games. Their new goalkeeper is Kepa Arrizabalaga, who got the team in the off-season after the transfer of former goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois to Real Madrid. He was helped by David Luiz, Marcos Alonso and Antonio Rudiger on the back line, all played excellent football since late.
A few other teams that were not the most obvious championships in the beginning of the season to beat Liverpool or Manchester City, but played very well, are Tottenham, Hotspur and Watford. The Spurs, the nickname of Tottenham, has one of the best players in the Premier League in advance, Harry Kane. Kane has been one of the best players in the league in the last few seasons and has scored at least 20 goals in the last four seasons, including 30 last season. Kane also got the Golden Shoe in the World Cup, which means he had the most goals during the tournament.
The Spurs also have Dele Alli and Son Heung-Min on offense, so they will make many goals this season. Hugo Lloris, their keeper, played for the French national team, so they also have a good player in the goal. They can be a team this season to watch.
Finally, a team that no one expected to play as well as it is this season is Watford. They are bound for the Premier League lead with 12 points. They have won all four matches they have played this season. They are in third place for the most goals scored so far in the season with nine and have also only allowed three goals.
Their top scorer, Roberto Pereyra, has three of them so far, and they have a good way to get the ball with him. It might seem a little early to say that Watford has a chance, but a few years ago Leicester City won the Premier League, so nothing is impossible.
The Premier League has been back for a month, but the season has just begun. The best matches have yet to come and the best teams are not yet decided. That is for the rest of the season to decide.
