8 October 2019



Eight rounds of matches of the 2019-20 Premier League season have been completed heading into this international break.

Winners

Liverpool

After finishing as runners-up behind Manchester City in May despite losing just one league game all season, Jurgen Klopp’s Reds are yet to drop a point this term and currently sit eight points clear at the top. While they have taken their run of top-flight wins, stretching back to March, to 17 games, their cause has been boosted by second-placed City suffering shock losses to Norwich and Wolves. There remains, of course, plenty of football to get through yet as Liverpool look to finally get their hands on the Premier League trophy, but they could hardly have wished for a better start to their title bid.

Brendan Rodgers

There was disappointment for Rodgers on Saturday as his return to his old club Liverpool saw his Leicester side beaten 2-1, but overall it has been a very positive opening to 2019-20 for the Northern Irishman and his team. Rodgers oversaw an eye-catching revival in the Foxes’ form last season following his appointment as their boss in February, and – after a summer in which they lost the services of Harry Maguire with the England defender’s move to Manchester United – the impressive work has continued. Ninth at the end of last term, Leicester have been spoken about as possible top-six finishers this time around and presently lie fourth with 14 points.
