The Premier League has changed an awful lot since the first game on 15th August 1992, when the new era of football in England began with a set of results that saw Norwich defeat Arsenal 4-2 at Highbury, Leeds United beat Wimbledon 2-1 at Elland Road, and Brian Deane enter the history books after scoring the first ever Premier League goal (against Manchester United of all teams).

With some of today’s avid Premier League fans possibly not even alive when the last game was played at Highbury stadium, Wimbledon in their original form a distant memory when it comes to the Premier League, and a fair few of the original ‘dinosaurs’ removed from the footballing landscape (we’re looking at you Andy Gray and Richard Keys) since the early days of the league, it’s fair to say that times have changed.

While the Premier League title looks set to be wrapped up in record time by Pep Guardiola’s Manchester in 2018, things certainly aren’t so clear in the rest of the league.

11 teams are embroiled in an extensive relegation battle for the ages, while at the opposite end of the league, the “top six” need to become a top four – with two teams set to be massively disappointed at missing out.

In a unique set of circumstances, five teams actually managed to qualify for the Champions League for the current campaign after Manchester United also snuck in by winning the Europa League in 2017. And the same could well happen again if Arsenal win Europe’s second competition this year.

This Premier League season promises to be one of the most fiercely contested in recent years. There are six teams with genuine designs on lifting the trophy come the end of the season, and each of these clubs has one of the world's leading managers at the helm. Unlike last season, where Chelsea's dominance was relatively unquestioned, this campaign could well have many twists and turns at the top of the table.

It is an indictment of the quality in the league that champions Chelsea are only widely perceived to be third favourites to take the title, especially considering the imperious form they displayed in Antonio Conte's debut season. That being said, the Blues have had a stuttering start to the season, falling to Burnley at home before recovering with a 2-1 victory at Spurs.

It’s somewhat surprising that Christian Tello hasn’t arrived in the Premier League yet. Linked with a move for several years now, the 24-year-old again finds himself again amongst the gossip columns in England.

This time Spurs, and Mauricio Pochettino’s ongoing revolution in North London is the apparent destination. On some levels the link makes a lot of sense.

Spurs boss, Mauricio Pochettino has stepped up a last minute chase for Victor Wanyama, the Southampton midfielder.

Pochettino hopes to sign Wanyama and West Brom striker, Saido Berahino before 6 pm on Tuesday when the Premier League's summer transfer window for this season closes.

Chelsea dropped 2 points after having to settle with a 1-1 draw when playing a Premier League match against the relegation zone club Burnley. It was a surprising result as the match was played in the home turf of Chelsea at Stamford Bridge which is where the team of Jose Mourinho has managed to win most of their matches in the Premier League in this season.

This result has allowed Manchester City to close the gap between them to 5 points, which used to be a lot higher not too long ago.

Even before the start of the Premier League 2014-15, everyone knew that Chelsea would be the team to beat.

They were the favourites for the title, but, they were not expected to have it easy. But, what has been seen till this point of time, it seems no team would be able to get even close to them as far as the no. of points is concerned.
