Winners and losers of the Premier League so far

The Premier League is in full swing and it’s about that time of year where we look at who is performing well and who is performing badly.

Winners

Chelsea: Conte has transformed the Chelsea side back into what they were in 14/15 looking good at the top of the league players such as Hazard and Costa have found form again whereas Victor Moses has had his career reinvigorated finding a lot more playing time this season and looking impressive.

Adam Lallana: Finally looking to be a 25 million pound player as he has found the form of his life for club and country notching up 3 goals and 5 assists in the league his performances have been key for Liverpool’s great start this season.

Theo Walcott: Back at his best. I have always rated Theo Walcott however after his injury he has been harder and harder to defend as a class player, however coming off the back of two lackluster seasons Walcott is back in and amongst the goals and has become one of the first names on Arsenals team sheet every week.

Losers:

Paul Pogba: Such an easy target but you’ve got to say for 89 million he has been a flop to say he is the most expensive player of all time you would want him to be putting in man of the match performances every week but he hasn’t done it once.

Spurs’ Physio: What a nightmare this lad must be having. Spurs have been through their injury crisis and it might see their Champions league run ended before it even begins. Losing arguably their 3 most important outfield players in Kane, Alderweireld and Dembele has cost them dearly and I reckon they would be top of the league if not for their injury woes.

Leicester City: What more do you need to say? Worst beginning to a title defence in Premier League history and only 3 points from relegation. Nobody expected a repeat performance from Ranieri’s side this season but we all expected better than this.
