Matt Le Tissier's Premier League verdict: Who's impressed? Who's flopped?

  • Le Tiss has been impressed by Chelsea and Liverpool

"I'd say the ones that have disappointed have been Manchester United, and to a certain extent, Tottenham".

And Southampton legend and Sky Sports pundit Le Tissier thinks that Arsenal have simply benefitted from coming up against far weaker opposition - insisting even then they have been fortunate to come away with maximum points in some of their matches. "They can win it [the title]".

Writing for BBC Sport, the former striker said: "Arsenal are on an impressive six-game winning run in the league, and they looked very good against a very open Fulham team on Sunday".

However, Chelsea FC's strong start to the new campaign has left them in second place in the table and level on points with joint leaders Manchester City and Liverpool FC after eight games.

"They have done well in a game [at Southampton] you'd expect them to do well in".

"They were very impressive, kept the ball well, controlled the game from a possession point of view, and just looked a lot more risky. In fact, I am still not sure they will make it into the top four".

Who will win the title?

You can name it - pass, post up, shoot the ball, bring the ball up, being a playmaker - so I'm excited to break that stereotype. His trash talking and trolling are already legendary, and Embiid is only scratching the surface of how popular he can become.

The officials spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorised to talk to reporters about the subject. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo acknowledged the conflicting reports about the safety and whereabouts of Khashoggi.

"I don't think Arsenal, (will challenge for the title)" said Neville on Sky Sports. They have so much quality and strength in depth and over the course of the season that will give them the edge.

"Many people thought they were going to miss him a lot and obviously that quality of player is going to be a bit of a miss, but their strength in depth is just incredible and what they've got in terms of quality forward players and being able to hurt teams in different areas of the pitch".

'They should be a couple of points clear but Riyad Mahrez's penalty against Liverpool was an absolute shocker.

"They're thinking that De Bruyne should be available for the next Premier League game and that makes a big difference for them again".

Manchester United and Arsenal will miss out on a top-four finish in the Premier League this season, according to Matt Le Tissier. Le Tissier believes a top-four place will be theirs, though, if Eriksen returns sooner rather than later.

'Manchester United have got some ground to make up if they are going to be in contention'.
