Better Things Around The Corner For Jurgen Klopp's Liverpool

Better Things Around The Corner For Jurgen Klopp's Liverpool

Manchester City, Chelsea and Liverpool now make up the top three spots in the table and are only separated by goal difference.

What concerns me more about Spurs is still the strength of their squad and whether it is deep enough compared to the likes of City, Liverpool and Chelsea.

However, Chelsea's start to the season has surprised onlookers, including Burley, and Maurizio Sarri's side are now fancied to mount a challenge themselves.

The league normally starts to take shape after eight to 10 games, and when I look at the top and bottom of the table, it is not too far away from how I think it will finish in May.

Chelsea is the only other team than City and Liverpool to remain unbeaten after 8 games but ex-United defender Neville feels that they are a long way out.

The German has taken charge of 114 league games in total, meaning you can work out his record in three separate batches of 38 games.

I am expecting City and Liverpool to fight it out, with Chelsea the only other team who can challenge for the title - though for that to happen, a lot depends on Eden Hazard.

"As it is it's great progress from last season, we competed against them, they're a top team". After all, Liverpool beat City twice at home last season, by a combined scored of 7-3.

"He wants a possession game, he wants them to go through midfield, he's trying to make sure he is keeping Eden Hazard happy and that seems to be the case because he's playing particularly well at the moment, and they're getting results".

As I said on Match of the Day on Saturday, what has been happening at United this season has been embarrassing, right through the club.

As for Manchester City, they were the only Premier League side to register a victory in the Champions League midweek with a narrow 2-1 win over Hoffenheim.

"They struggled to get a foothold in the first half".

That's exactly what we got.

City's xG total from their opening eight matches this season is 21.5 - a rise on the figure of 17.5 in the corresponding fixtures last season.

According to Gracenote, one of the reasons for the reduction in probability of conceding goals is the team cohesion in defence, as most of the back five have played together for more than a year, while the inclusion of Aymeric Laporte and Benjamin Mendy has considerably improved the side. They didn't have one shot on target.

City boss Pep Guardiola reined in their attacking intent during Sunday's goalless draw at Anfield with a first-half performance in particular which was the most restrained of any since his arrival in England.

The Reds had a tough test against Manchester City but somehow managed to come out with a draw in the end, with Riyad Mahrez missing a crucial penalty.
