Plenty of the big boys struggled early in the season, while Liverpool and Tottenham raced out ahead of the pack, but it’s now Manchester City miles ahead of Manchester United and Leicester City in the Premier League title race.
West Ham currently occupy a Champions League place and can call themselves the top London side after 25 games.
Chelsea, Liverpool, Everton and Aston Villa look like the other contenders for a top-four place, while Tottenham and Arsenal have once again found one another down in 9th and 10th, respectively.
In short, the Premier League standings have been — and will continue to be — wild on multiple fronts as we charge full speed ahead into the second half of the campaign.

While it looked a foregone conclusion very recently that Fulham, West Brom and Sheffield United would all be relegated to the EFL Championship, the Cottagers are red-hot and quickly reeling in 17th-place Newcastle United. With just three points between the sides, the Magpies are officially in a relegation battle. Brighton & Hove Albion and Burnley continue to collect points, though they are also now just four and six points clear of the drop, respectively. After winning three out of five Premier League fixtures in recent weeks, Sheffield United are once again losers of three straight as they float 14 points adrift of safety.
It no longer early days, but there will still be plenty of twists and turns ahead because, well, this is the Premier League.
