The usual suspects Manchester City, Manchester United and Chelsea are all in the top four positions. But newcomers Hull City remain the biggest surprise after picking maximum points in two matches and are surprisingly placed third on the log. They surprised champions Leicester City 2-1 in the season opener and beat Swansea 2-0 last weekend. Hull face perhaps their biggest test when they host Manchester United on Saturday.
Two wins in a row have given Hull City plenty of confidence going into Saturday’s fixture but in United they face an inspired side that has not dropped any points so far.
Hull manager Mike Phelan has done well for himself considering that he inherited a squad that was ravaged by injuries and he has not been able to buy any big names.
He will be hoping that Shaun Maloney and Abel Hernandez are once again able to inspire his side against the Red Devils after scoring a goal each against Swansea last weekend.
United seems to be getting better with every match and fans are likely to see an even improved performance on Saturday. With all their top stars available, it will not be a surprise to see United at the top of the log by the end of the weekend.
Last year’s runners-up Arsenal have had a bad start but have an opportunity to pick their first win at Watford on Saturday. The Gunners lost 4-3 to Liverpool in the season opener before fighting to a barren draw against champions Leicester City last weekend. It is a start that has jolted even the most loyal Arsenal fans.
The match of the weekend is no doubt Saturday’s clash pitting Liverpool against Tottenham Hotspurs.
Spurs have picked four points so far while the Reds who lost last weekend have three points from an impressive 4-3 win against Arsenal in the season opener.
Leaders, Manchester City will be out to protect their position as they take on West Ham on Sunday. City has qualified for the group stages of the Champions League and have been looking dangerous giving them the confidence to face the Hammers.
