After last weekend’s round of games, we now have 27 games more to go.
Gameweek 11 featured emotional games in Cardiff, a stalemate at the Emirates, Manchester United’s late winner at Bournemouth and of course the Citizens’ master class.
There’ll be one more round before the last international break for the year. But before then, here are some of the things we learned from week 11 action in the Premier League:
Arsenal’s top-four fight
Before the season began, Arsenal was out of the running for a UCL spot this season. Two games into the season, things went from bad to worse for them as they lost to Manchester City and Chelsea.
But the tides have since changed. Unai Emery’s Arsenal has not lost a game since September 18th. That’s six weeks and counting now.

Instead of playing second fiddle to Liverpool this past weekend, the London club matched the Reds in all aspects; a performance that has got all and sundry wondering just how good this Arsenal side is and whether or not they can achieve a top-four finish this season.
Toughest season yet
This is the first time since the 1978-79 season that three top-flight teams have gone unbeaten in their opening 11 games of a league campaign (Manchester City, Chelsea and Liverpool). Liverpool’s draw against Arsenal forced them to drop two points behind Manchester City on the table.

Man. City’s six goals against Southampton now mean they have scored 33 goals in 11 PL games this season – an average of 33 per game. Their four goals conceded in the league is the least throughout the league.
It’s hard to see this season’s winner outside these three. The question is who will win it?
Relegation status confirmed?
This week, Huddersfield and Newcastle registered their first win of the season. But not much has changed when you look down south the table.
Fulham, with all the money spent, seem rooted to the bottom of the log. Cardiff City has lost 8 games of 11, and has conceded an average of 3 goals per game. Huddersfield Town have serious trouble getting the goals (they’ve only scored 5 this season). Newcastle may have Rafa Benitez but 6 points out of a possible 33 looks like a one-way ticket for a swim in relegation waters.
