Amazon And Facebook Likely To Bid For Premier League Streaming Rights

After five games, Chelsea are in third place in the Premier League table, three points behind both Manchester clubs.

What you see on the pitch reflects what's happening in the background and while I gave a qualified judgement a few weeks back that Antonio Conte seems to have accepted his lot and is keen to knuckle down to his job, I think there are signs that Chelsea are feeling some strain.

Only Pompey under Paul Hart have waited longer than Palace for their first points of a Premier League campaign, losing their first seven games before eventually recording a win over Wolves in their eighth.

Even without Costa, Chelsea have proved they still pose a major threat in attack. He's a top player and the Premier League should have top players playing in it'.

If they come out firing on all cylinders, the Blues are likely to score an early goal against a team that struggled to keep clean sheets.

Leicester's season so far has seen them fall short against the top teams (Arsenal, Man United and Chelsea) and pick up results against weaker opposition (Brighton in the league and Sheffield United in the Cup).

Manchester United is right at the front of that, with the club posting a record revenue figure for the 2016/17 year.

The champions have the worst disciplinary record in the Premier League this season - and that's without their self-styled baddie Diego Costa.

But the 29-year-old is adamant new boys Alvaro Morata, Tiemoue Bakayoko, Danny Drinkwater, Antonio Rudiger and Davide Zappacosta will aid the defence of the title.

Another team with just one point after eight games, that run for the Owls was rounded off by an 8-0 loss to Newcastle with five goals from Alan Shearer.

Liverpool imploded, City shifted gears and added four more goals to compound Klopp's misery. "After that we killed the game in the last minutes".

Sergio Aguero and Gabriel Jesus both scored in last weekend's rout and in Holland.

Also included in the list is Xherdan Shaqiri's strike in Stoke's 2-1 defeat at Newcastle on Saturday, alongside Scott Arfield's opener in Burnley's fine 1-1 draw against Liverpool at Anfield. And maybe they have just got that wrong.

"We are pleased with the investment in our squad and look forward to an exciting season".
