Some conclusions (because you love ’em)
* Chelsea are good now.

* Liverpool’s defence has stayed consistently decent, but the attack has drastically improved.

* Arsenal are just Arsenal.

* Tottenham are better in almost every aspect, aside from a slight decrease in goals.

* Louis > Jose.

* Sunderland’s commitment to being terrible has to be appreciated.

* Good on Bournemouth.

* Oh dear, Southampton.

* Oh dear oh dear, Crystal Palace.

* Oh dear oh dear oh dear, West Ham.

* Oh sh*t, Leicester.

* This season needs more Tim Sherwood.
