In the football realm, the Premier League stands out due to its unpredictable nature. Every season, several unexpected teams give the top-tier teams a run for their money. Last season, teams like Newcastle United and Brighton & Hove Albion surprised many with their dominant performances against the big clubs.
Starting off this season, clubs like Manchester City, Tottenham Hotspur, and Liverpool seem to be in fine form. Let’s dive into four teams that are showing potential to clinch the Premier League crown this season.
#4 Tottenham Hotspur
Tottenham’s previous season was a bit rocky, with them missing out on a Champions League spot. Yet, a wave of changes has re-energized the club. Even though many expected Harry Kane’s departure to hit Spurs hard, they’ve adjusted well without him
With 14 points in six games and now sitting fourth in the league, their season’s beginning looks promising. Their acquisition of James Maddison and their current form makes them a team to keep an eye on. They could be dark horses for the Premier League trophy if they maintain their momentum.

Last season, Arsenal put up a solid fight against Manchester City. This season, they’re back with intent, sitting fifth in the league with 14 points from six matches
Their strategic signings – Declan Rice, David Raya, and Jurrien Timber – have added depth to their roster. After last season’s challenges with squad fatigue, their enhanced team strength places them in a good position to aim for the top.
Last season saw Jurgen Klopp and his team face quite a bit of criticism. However, their roster revamp has improved their gameplay, evident from their current second position in the league table with 16 points
Although it’s still early days, their new midfield recruits like Ryan Gravenberch, Dominik Szoboszlai, and Alexis Mac Allister have addressed the team’s previous shortcomings. If they stay consistent, Liverpool can definitely challenge for the title.
#1 Manchester City
Manchester City continues to showcase their class. They’re the only team to maintain a perfect winning record so far this season.
Despite key departures such as Riyad Mahrez and Ilkay Gundogan and Kevin De Bruyne’s injury concerns, City hasn’t missed a beat. This resilience speaks volumes about their squad depth and quality. With 18 points from their starting six matches, Manchester City seems to be on track to potentially reclaim the Premier League title.
