Image: One point separates 2nd and 7th in the Premier League

This image of the top seven in the Premier League is doing the rounds. As it stands after ten games, just a single point separates 2nd placed Chelsea and Everton down in seventh.

Of course, Arsenal are the pick apart with a little cushion in first place after their defeat of Liverpool on Saturday, but any of the next six will all have reason to be confident.

  • Chelsea have had their doubters but with a deep squad are poised in an excellent position to challenge for first place and eventual glory.
  • Liverpool have had their best start in five years and although are lacking some depth in the centre of the park, are scoring at will with the so-called SAS front-line.
  • Tottenham have invested heavily and we still have yet to see the emergence of £30million striker Erik Lamela and have seen only cameos from Christian Eriksen. They are perched very nicely as the season unfolds.
  • Manchester City will be fairly disappointed with their start, but with such a strong squad they too are nicely positioned for an assault on the top place in the next handful of games.
  • Southampton have had an astonishing start to the season, but are playing such a high quality of football that it’s not hard to see them sticking in the top seven for the next few months.
  • Everton are grinding out results and Romelu Lukaku is only going to get better.
