With Gameweek Six all done and tasted and the goals finally dried up a bit after the first few weeks of a manic, the table is still not easy to come out.
There is no fugitive leader and it is still a case that anyone can beat anyone with the loss of Virgil Van Dijk at Liverpool, meaning the prediction is more difficult than usual.
Here are the top five keynote speeches from the latest round of Premier League games …

What is the sign of Van de Beek?
He has been one of Eredivisie’s most exciting players over the last few seasons and has been a major cog in the Ajax team that secured a place in the Champions League semifinals two seasons ago, but what’s the point? Donnie van de Beek at Manchester United?
The club paid ਡ 40 million for the Dutch to build a world-class middle three with Bruno Fernandes and Paul Pogba but they have so far been limited to just 48 minutes in the Premier League and were held to a lifeless 0-0 draw on Saturday. With Chelsea.
If you’re regularly leaving a creative player on the bench who has performed brilliantly so far, even if you’re completely unaware of any attacking fantasies, this begs the question. Why was it signed? Especially when that extra money would have crossed the Jaden Sancho deal line – or signed back to Earling Holland in January.
This is even more shocking when Ole Gunnar Slusskaire insists he is not getting his chance because he is competing for places. Although Paul Pogba left for the last two or three matches, Van de Beek did not do well with Ninja Matic, Scott McTomney and Fred at the moment.
This raises further questions about Manchester United’s recruitment strategy as it was clearly not the Soulscare he wanted and no football director, does that mean Ed Woodward is now signing players that he alone Wants? It’s even more mysterious when the central midfield was probably in a position where the club had more resources than before.
“Donnie should not have gone to Manchester United,” said Marco van Basten, the great Dutch storyteller. “When you are a good player, you want to play every week. It’s really bad for a player like Donnie to play just six or seven matches this year. This is amazing for the rhythm of your match.
“I know he’s gaining more weight and weight than ever before. But as a top player you have to be critical and look at the chances of playing when you sign for a new club. Donnie should have waited for better prospects and signed for another club. ”
Mutton decorated like lamb?
Mikel Arteta is now in charge of Arsenal for 26 Premier League games, and while he has won the FA Cup and a Commonwealth City Shield, his most recent game in charge was another defeat, this time at home in Leicester City.
He has won just 46 per cent of the games he has managed in the league, losing eight and drawing six to see Arsenal finish eighth last season and 11th this time.

But where is the pressure from Arsenal fans to improve? It was his predecessor, Emery, since that time, and his record at that stage was much higher. His winning percentage was 12 percent higher as he scored 13 more goals in his first 26 games.
So why does Arteta get a free pass? Is it because he is a former player or has the standards of Arsenal fans finally become more pragmatic?
One thing he has definitely improved is nine less goals than Emery in the Premier League, but for everything else – including possession – he is behind.
Emery’s struggle to understand English may have made him look worse at the job than Aretta’s approach to media work, which makes him look like another pair of hands.
Anyway, Arteta needs to use this extra time when those fans are getting restless and giving him a good impression before he finally turns it on.
PL’s deadliest duo strike again
Debates over whether the deadliest attack in the Premier League is Salah-Mane-Fermino or Marshall-Rashford-Greenwood, last season, saw a clear winner this season. And it is not.
Harry Kane and Heng-Min Ben reunited on Tuesday morning to see Burnley in a unique victory, but the series wins without playing well. Blow it up, but isn’t it a ‘mark of champions’?
The son now has eight goals in the league this season and Kane has eight assistants, both of whom are top of the rankings in each of the Spurs forwards. This is already Kane’s best comeback for an entire season in the form of assists, the next top four being Aston Villa’s John McGinn.
In the history of the Premier League, only Didier Drogba and Frank Lampard have now conceded more goals than Son and Kane, while the England captain has already added 13 goals this season.
The impact Jose Mourinho has had on him is obvious, and with Gareth Bale there is still a growing trio of attackers on a regular basis and you wouldn’t be surprised if, given the current state of the Premier League’s challenges, If this could be the end of the year.
Title Race Wide Open
The league usually takes shape for the season around Gameweek 10, but with six games already played, one wonders who will bring home the silverware this season.
Everton and Aston Villa became the last two teams to lose their unbeaten start to the season this weekend and although they remain honorably in first and third place, it is unlikely that they will remain there throughout the season.
An unbeaten home win for Liverpool’s struggling Sheffield United left them in third place but with a lot of question marks over their season after Van Dijk’s injury, while the rest of the team that made it into the top four last year However, currently no higher than 10th.
After six rounds, there are only eight points that separate 16 and 1 and we have a real chance that we will get a repeat of that Leicester City season, nowhere near picking up a sudden Champions Trophy.
The 10 games are usually an indication of where everyone will actually end up and which managers are under the most pressure during the busy Christmas season, but there are no favorites at the moment.
Relation zone shopping already
While positions 1-16 appear very close, the bottom four are already evolving at the wrong end of the table.
West Brom, Burnley, Sheffield United and Fulham have failed to win a match so far this season but have lost one of the last three, but have played so far.
While West Brom and Fulham have always been expected to struggle, this is a major concern for Sheffield United, who spent much of last season in the top five under Chris Wilder’s impressive strategic revolution.
These are just the beginning but not much has been done to suggest that any of these teams can add up to a few wins so far, Burnley’s best performance to date was a 1-0 loss to Tottenham Hotspur. .
Scott Parker is now the favorite to be the first manager to be sacked this season, beating Ole Gunner Slacksey, and it would be no surprise to see him happen sooner rather than later, with the need to stay in the league longer than before. The current financial crisis grips the football league.
