Big Week in the EPL

Arsenal leads the league in scoring and also leads the table. They may not get a break this week even though Bolton’s near the bottom of the table, because the dismissal Sammy Lee may motivate the Wanderers to play at another level. Man U coming off a 4-0 win over Wigan Athletic, travels to Villa Park to take on Aston Villa who will be looking to get the win and pull into contention. Manchester City goes to Birmingham City on Saturday and tries to keep pace with the leaders who will probably get the result they want. Liverpool has fallen off the pace, but can they put it together? Can any of the 3 (Rovers, Chelsea, Villa) in the middle of the pack make a run?

Five Games in

The cream is rising to the top as names at the top of the EPL become to look more familiar. Liverpool, Arsenal, and Chelsea are tied for the lead with Everton still surprising the field games in. The second tier also has some powerhouses names with Man City and Man U. Newcastle and Blackburn try to prove that deserve to be in the same breath with the others. As the schedule makes its rounds the big boys should get some separation. Who do you think should be coming out of the pack?
