Liverpool have given new impetus as truth about Chelsea and Man City emerges – .

Prior to the start of the new campaign, it was anticipated that this season’s title race could be one of the tightest and most competitive in years.
And ten games later, those predictions seem to have merit. As it stands, Chelsea are leading the way with Thomas Tuchel’s men sitting at 25 points after ten games.

In second place are Jurgen Klopp’s Liverpool who, despite being the only Premier League side yet to be defeated, still find themselves one point behind their London rivals.

In third and two more points behind the Reds, Manchester City suffered a shock 2-0 home loss to Crystal Palace last weekend.

Although Chelsea are currently the team to catch up on, City and Liverpool have a slight advantage in that, on paper at least, they have already completed some of their toughest games of the campaign.

As pointed out above, based on the FiveThirtyEight Prediction Index, the average predicted end of season positions for Liverpool’s combined opponents so far is 10.1.

So far, only eight teams have had a more difficult opening series. One of those teams is City, although the difference between the two is only marginal – 9.9.

Meanwhile, between the key battles with Liverpool and City, the highlights above Chelsea have enjoyed one of the most favorable runs so far, and in fact there are only five teams that have had a better opening of ten games on paper than the winners of the Champions League

This could hint that they could risk losing valuable points in the coming weeks as they face more teams who are expected to primarily compete atop the Premier League table this year.

Two of those tricky teams on the immediate horizon are Man United and Leicester City, their next two opponents after facing Burnley this weekend.

It will therefore be up to Liverpool to ensure that they profit should Tuchel’s side unblock in any of these encounters, regaining the top spot where they will undoubtedly do whatever they can to stay for the rest of the countryside.
