The chase for the top places in the Premiere League gets hotter.

I watched most of the games this week-end and noticed the strain especially on the top teams. Liverpool had a few shocks in their game with Crystal Palace, After a struggle they eventually won 4-3.
Salah managed to score a couple but once again was seen to dive in the penalty area. If he is not careful he will get a reputation and have the referees watching him closely.

Man City were out of form in a tame first half but rallied to win, Huddersfield 0 Man City 3.

Spurs were given a huge fright by lowly Fulham only managing to
scramble home with the last move of the game Spurs 2 Fulham 1.
Chelsea lost to a improved Arsenal Arsenal 2 Chelsea 0.

Man united only just held off a Brighton chase. Man United 2 Brighton 1.

It looks to me that there will be 2 competitions One for top place by Liverpool and Man City.

There is a chase for the next 2 places contested ever more closely by Spurs, Chelsea, Arsenal and Man United.

I find it difficult to forecast the third and fourth places.

It's going to be interesting. !!!!!
