Top Premier League and route correction trip

The first half of the Premier League before the stoppage saw several stumbling blocks for the big clubs that resulted in fierce competition for the Golden Box seats.

Currently Arsenal are top of the Premiership table with 37 points, 5 ahead of Manchester City, the defending champions and closest pursuers.

Newcastle United surprised everyone this season by reaching third place on 30 points, a point behind Spurs in fourth place at a time when Manchester United (26 points) and Liverpool (22 points) are making a great effort to return to the front four where they are fifth and sixth.

Liverpool are the worst performers among adults this season in the Premier League, losing 4 times in the current edition so far, double the number of defeats last season they finished in the row after collecting 92 points.

Chelsea, who decided to sack manager Thomas Tuchel after the sixth round, also have a difficult time away from the big boys, finishing eighth with 21 points and trying to save what can be saved under new manager Graham Potter.

It should be noted that Newcastle and Tottenham have played 15 times, with Arsenal, City, United, Liverpool and Chelsea playing 14.

Haaland devours everyone

In the scorers’ tussle, Norwegian teenage striker Erling Haaland flew Manchester City into the lead with 18 goals, 6 ahead of Tottenham star Harry Kane.

Kane is the only one who has previously won the award and is actively active in the current scorer struggle followed by Brentford’s Ivan Toni, who scored 10 goals, Alexander Mitrovic (Fulham) and Rodrigo Moreno (Leeds United), each with 9 goals.

Last season saw Liverpool star Mohamed Salah and Tottenham’s Heung-min Son share the goalscorer award with 23 goals apiece but are currently away from the competition, with Mo scoring 6 goals in the current season, 3 ahead of the Spurs star.
