Taking Stock Of The Premier League So Far
The international break gives us a great opportunity to review the first stages of the Premier League season, which is no almost a quarter of the way through. If you check out the best real money casino sites and look at their sportsbooks, you will also see that odds for who finishes where have changed drastically when compared to just 6 weeks ago. Let’s use this time to take a look at who has done what, who is in trouble, and who has already exceeded expectations.

North London Strong
Most notably this season we have seen the two north London clubs really come to the fore, and currently, Arsenal sits top of the table with Spurs in 3rd. Only 1 point currently separates Arteta and Conte’s sides, something few saw coming. Everyone expected the two sides to do well, but to go unbeaten after 7 games was something that few had on their predictions. The North London derby this weekend will be highly charged, and the eyes of the country will be on the game.
Brighton has so far been one of the surprise packages of the season and currently sits in 4th place. In fact, check out the sportsbooks of the best US real money online casinos and you’ll see that the Seasiders are now 6th favorites to win the PL title, madness! Whilst Brighton has been exceptional, we have to bear in mind that Graham Potter, who did such a good job for the side, has now moved on to Chelsea, which could upset the team going forward.
The Stuttering Reds
Liverpool were almost joint favorites with Manchester City for the PL title this season, and understandably so. The first 7 games and those performances however are something that will certainly worry Liverpool fans. The Reds have so far won only 2 games from 6, drawing 3 and losing 1, a very uncharacteristic level of form from this side. There is still a lot of faith in Klopp’s men of course, but they have to hit the ground running after the international break.
So many had high hopes for Marco Silva when he took over at Everton back in 2018, but things couldn’t have gone worse for the Portuguese manager. Silva ate humble pie and went back to basics, taking over at Fulham 18 months ago. In that time he has done very well at Craven Cottage and their form so far in the PL has been incredible. Fulham currently sits in 6th and they have a side that is playing exciting football, with real talent in the squad.
Ten Hag Turnaround
Everyone knew that Eric Ten Hag had an uphill battle on his hands at Manchester United, and he may very well be winning it. United stuttered at the beginning of the season but is now on a 4 game win streak and playing some very attractive football. Red Devil fans can certainly be encouraged by what they are seeing from their side.
How do you see things shaping up in the coming months?
