Last year's runner-up Liverpool haven't had a great time as they languish in the 10th spot on the points table. Chelsea too have struggled this season with new manager Graham Potter not being able to have his team string together a series of consistent and favourable results, despite having spent a lot of money on new signings.
Manchester United on the other hand, have made a remarkable recovery after a horrid start to the season. Erik ten Hag seems to have worked wonders for his new club as the Red Devils now find themselves in a good position to qualify for next year's Champions League. Newcastle United and Brighton have been two other exciting sides this season.
