There is also the case of Arsenal who have not won points from two matches. The Gunners struggled at the start of the season, manager Mikel Arteta could not field his best team.
Of the 20 Premier League matches that have been played in the past two weeks, there are at least four interesting records that need attention. What are those? Here is the review.
Chelsea + Lukaku = Boom!
Chelsea has been one of the strongest teams in the Premier League since last season, now that strength looks even more solid. Thomas Tuchel has the best team composition.
The presence of Romelu Lukaku this season enhances Chelsea’s strength. They are getting sharper and more effective in attack, Lukaku gives a different dimension.
Lukaku’s physical toughness is a new PR for teams that face Chelsea. Now they have to be extra careful, Arsenal have become the first victims.
Arsenal in trouble
Bad start to the season for Arsenal and Mikel Arteta. Two games passed with 0 points, Arsenal lost to Brentford and Chelsea with the same score 0-2.
Arsenal’s game far below expectations. Arteta looked difficult because many of his best players were forced to miss.
In addition, the Gunners seemed to play with fear. Arteta’s tactics failed miserably, especially in trying to build attacks from the back.

MU will make a surprise
Manchester United won big in the first match by beating Leeds United 5-1. However, in the second week Manchester United had to be held to a draw by Southampton with a score of 1-1.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s squad is currently arguably one of the best squads. Finally Solskjaer got important players to strengthen his squad.
The problem is, winning 5-1 then drawing 1-1 shows the same inconsistency problem as last season. United can surprise you, but Solskjaer has to sort this out.
Fierce Middle Board
The start of this season also indicated that the 2021/2022 Premier League will be decorated with hot competition in the middle board. There are many teams at the same level.
West Ham have made a surprise with two wins, Everton also played quite well. Then there are Aston Villa and Leicester which can be a surprise.
The competition in the 2021/2022 season is believed to be even more even. The difference in strength between the teams is not too big.
