This weekend has been very entertaining for the football lovers as a great deal of soccer matches were played on Saturday and Sunday in the English Premier League. Moreso, with the international break looming, teams caught tooth and nail to make sure they we y for the break as high on the table as possible.
Of course the top team is Chelsea, who are leading the table with 16 points. Chelsea have won 5 of the 7 matches they have played, drawn 1 and lost the other. They are also leading in terms of goals scored having a goal difference of +12 goals. On Saturday, they saw off Southampton 3-1 thanks to goals from Chalobah, Werner and Chilwell.
Liverpool are second on the log with 15 points having won 4 of the 7 matches they have played and drawing the remaining 3 marches. They are the only team remaining who are unbeaten in the league. In Sunday, Liverpool lost points to Manchester City who scored a late goal to level the score at 2-2 and make sure they shared the points.
Manchester City are third obviously with 14 points, winning 4 matches, drawing 2 and losing 1. They have scored 14 goals so far in the league being the second best scoring team after Liverpool who have score 17 goals so far.
Manchester United complete the top four at position 4, with 14 points. The funny bit is that Everton and Brighton and Hove Albion are also on 14 points meaning that the top four race is all but very tight.
Arsenal are languishing in position 11 with 10 points, and after a very poor start to the campaign they failed to take all three points against Brighton in Saturday and settled only for a draw. They have a -5 goal difference and have work to do, as soon as the league resumes in a fortnight.
The bottom three teams are Burnley with 3 points, Newcastle United with 3 points and Norwich who are the last with just 1 point.
