Manchester City – 9th club to lead the Premier League this season

Sergio Aguero-Manchester City

The Premier League has been extremely unpredictable this season and Manchester City have now become the 9th club to lead the table so far this year.

The likes of Liverpool, Tottenham, Leicester City, Manchester United, Aston Villa, Everton, Arsenal and Chelsea have all led the Premier League at times this season and it will be interesting to see who comes out on top eventually.

Before this year the highest number of leaders in a campaign had been eight – coming in 1998/99, 2001/02, 2002/03 and 2007/08.

In terms of quality and consistency, Manchester City are probably the best team in the League right now and they will be favourites to go on and win the Premier League title this season.

The likes of Liverpool have been inconsistent because of their injury problems and it will be interesting to see how Manchester United fare in the coming weeks.

The Red Devils were excellent up until the game against Sheffield United but the blades managed to beat them easily at Old Trafford and there are question marks over Solskjaer’s team once again.

Manchester United certainly have the quality to challenge Manchester City for the title but they will have to be consistent against the weaker teams. They will be up against Arsenal this weekend and a win could take them back to the top of the Premier League table once again.

Liverpool will have to sign quality defensive players in order to go on a winning run during the second half of the season and challenge the likes of Manchester City and Manchester United.

The Reds are currently plagued with defensive issues and their first choice centre backs are injured for a considerable period.

The likes of West Ham, Aston Villa have done well this season but it is highly unlikely that they will be able to sustain a title push until the end of the season.

As far as Leicester City are concerned, they are a good attacking team but Jamie Vardy is injured right now and it will be interesting to see how the foxes cope without their best striker in the coming weeks.
