Even as a Spurs fan, it is hard to imagine anyone winning it this season besides Liverpool or City. But sometimes, like in 2016 with Leicester, you don't see the surprise team coming. I think Chelsea is likely to fall out of the top 4, and it would seem Arsenal (that hurts to type that) is best positioned to replace them. I think United will need a year to sort things out with yet another new gaffer, so I don't see them in the top 4.

As for relegation, it seems like every season at least one of the newly promoted teams doesn't last. So I will say Forest gets relegated, along with Bournemouth and Leeds. I also think Southampton and Everton will flirt with relegation.

If ten Hag can get Man U into the top 4 this year it will be the best bit of coaching since....conte last year

Arob had a very good day marking Saleh. Ream had a couple tough moments and let Salah loose on his goal but, it's Liverpool. No one in the US group is Liverpool. Playing 3 month alongside Jedi in the PL has to give GGG some thought to starting them together. At least as a tiebreaker for a close call.

Aaronson had a good day, made it look like a Concacat friendly. Should have been given the goal. Adams had a rougher time, but he was asked to do a lot. Didn't look comfortable at all.

Pulisic is going to have trouble unless he forms connections with at least one other Chelsea regular on the field. He's clearly an afterthought on the roster right now. Chelsea looks like they are going to be a mess. CP would do well to leave asap.

Pulisic looked better than Mount in that match.

No one from Chelsea looked good in that match. If not for playing what looks to be a historically goal phobic Everton side, FML, they'd have blown it.

I can't imagine that anyone on Chelsea doesn't hate Tuchel. How can anyone play for that guy. At least Everton's problem of spening too much on bad players can be fixed.

I don't see how Tuchel makes it to the WC unless he stopped messing with his players heads. There is a line of players looking to leave, but they won't let them.

Back up the video on the Aronson game winner. None of it happens without a superb line breaking pass by Adams.

Adams isn't very good on the ball and rarely makes impact passes going forward. I'd be can figure that out Leeds will be good

Back up the video on the Aronson game winner. Adams takes a pass and makes an impact pass forward that contributes to the game winner. No goal with him.

Watched it live. I'm saying that's not Adams' strong suit. Would be great for Leeds and USMNT if it becomes his competency

So I've tried to get into this but feel no connection to the teams. Who should a UCONN fan from Boston who hates the Red Sox ownership cheer for?

He has such a short shelf life with every club he is with. He’s like wish dot com Jose Mourinho

Come join the Spurs. Tottenham has the white and navy blue colors you're familiar with, London based so easy to visit, best stadium in the league, possibly best front 3 in Europe right now and racking up goals, always on TV, top 6 historic club but often disrespected so you won't be frontrunning with a Duke (Man City) or Kentucky (Chelsea) type club. Obviously Liverpool have the Fenway connection so they're out. Think they'll be playing with a chip on their shoulder this year with a GOAT level manager in Conte and should surprise in the end. Also in Champions League which is much more fun. Spurs have a great Boston presence too: Boston Supporters' Club | Tottenham Hotspur

Liverpool is the Red Sox ownership. City is better then them. Chelsea was just bought by the owner of the Dodgers. Then there is Man U, the UCLA of the EPL, a dynasty struggling to live up to its past and failing spectacularly.

If you want to see games on free TV, pick one of those four. If you have Peacock, every game is available.

If you want to watch USMNT players, Fullham and Leeds each have 2 who will play regularly, but both could be in danger of being relegated, though both looked pretty good in match 1. Pulisic plays for Chelsea but he's on the fringe of the Starting 11 right now.

I don’t think the Chelsea game was live on Peacock but I could be wrong.
