As we head into the international break, Southampton and Premier League legend Matt Le Tissier has been discussing who he has and hasn’t been impressed with so far this campaign.
Le Tissier revealed that Maurizio Sarri’s Chelsea and Jurgen Klopp’s Liverpool have been the two sides that have caught his eye the most this season, while he rather unsurprisingly admitted he has been unimpressed by Jose Mourinho’s Manchester United.
“Out of the top six from last season, I would say that Chelsea and Liverpool have impressed. I’d say the ones that have disappointed have been Manchester United, and to a certain extent, Tottenham. I think Manchester City are doing what you would expect them to do and Arsenal are around where you would expect them to be,” Le Tissier told Sky Sports.
Former England international Le Tissier also reckons that Arsenal fans should not be getting to carried away with their current excellent run of form.
“In terms of Arsenal’s form, they beat Fulham at the weekend and previous to that they were lucky against Watford and Everton, while only beating Newcastle and Cardiff by the odd goal. I don’t think they have been tested that much really, and they lost their two games against Manchester City and Chelsea – although they were unlucky against Chelsea,” he continued.
“It has been nine wins in a row in all competitions, but I’m not sure the opposition in those games has been so good that they can get over-confident about their run and their title chances.’’
“I think Chelsea and Liverpool are the ones that have really impressed so far and Man United and Spurs are the ones that haven’t played as well.”
