Assessing the performance of the Premier League giants so far: Liverpool and Chelsea are the worst

The most fertile striker in Premier League history, Alan Shearer gives his assessment of the performance of the giant teams at the start of the 2022/2023 season. Liverpool and Chelsea are the teams that are farthest from expectations.

This Premier League season has been running until the eighth week. However, all matchday seven and three games of week eight have been postponed due to the death of Queen Elizabeth II.

So far Arsenal are still at the top of the standings followed by Manchester City and Tottenham. One other team in the top four zone surprisingly is Brighton.

Liverpool and Chelsea Disappointed

Liverpool and Chelsea themselves are now scattered in eighth and seventh respectively. Shearer also considers that these two teams have so far had a disappointing season.

"Some of the big clubs have started the season strangely, with Liverpool very far from the level we've always known," Shearer told BBC Sport.

"Chelsea are the same, and they have experienced more turbulence after the change of manager," added the former Newcastle striker.

Arsenal Still Needs Proof

Furthermore, Shearer also gave his assessment of the other teams, from Manchester United, Tottenham, Manchester City, to Arsenal who were at the top.

"Manchester United made a very bad start too but they have recovered well, while Tottenham are still unbeaten and up there with Manchester City, who are still the team to beat," said Shearer.

"I still think Arsenal's main target is to get back into the top four for the first time since 2016, and so far they haven't made too many mistakes."

"The next two (Arsenal's) league games in early October, at home against Spurs and Liverpool, will tell us a lot more about whether they can maintain this strong start, but, right now, their fans will be enjoying what they're seeing."
