Manchester United are in red-hot form this season as they recently won the EFL Cup against Newcastle. They are a part of the Big 6 clubs of the Premier League, The “big six” Premier League teams are Manchester United, Liverpool, Arsenal, Chelsea, Manchester City, and Tottenham. The big six are the teams in the league that have had the greatest sustained success. Also, they have the largest stadiums, the broadest fan bases, and thus the strongest financial standing. The clubs typically made up the top six teams in the Premier League since the 2010s, with the same teams typically competing for European qualification.
This season, Arsenal has emerged on top of the league and has a two point advantage and a game in hand over last year’s champions, Manchester City. However, Manchester United has picked up the pace under Ten Hag and is currently third in the league. Tottenham is also competing to be in the top four as they are currently in fourth place and have two points more than fifth place Newcastle. Liverpool and Chelsea on the other hand have had a terrible run of form as both teams are out of Champions League spots and Chelsea is sitting tenth.
Number of Goals Scored by the Big 6
The 2022-23 season has been all about Arsenal, and their performances on the biggest stages have played a significant role. They have only lost once at home this year, to Manchester City, and twice away against Manchester United and Everton, However, they have defeated Liverpool and Chelsea, completed a double over rivals in north London, Tottenham, and they exacted revenge on the Red Devils at the Emirates thanks to a last-second goal from Eddie Nketiah. At Old Trafford, Erik ten Hag has excelled, guiding Manchester United to victories over City, Liverpool, Arsenal, and Spurs. They have yet to travel to Liverpool and Spurs, and they have already lost away at City and Arsenal.
Klopp’s Reds have shown some fight in wins over Man City and Spurs but also lost to United and Arsenal. All the while Chelsea remains the only side yet to win a big si clash this season, with the worst record in the heavyweight clashes, though they have mustered draws against Liverpool, Manchester United, and Spurs. It’s vital to remember that, unlike most recent seasons, the first six spots in the table are not expected to be filled by the big six. Chelsea currently trails surprise packages Brighton, Fulham, and Brentford, while newly-minted Newcastle United is looking good in their top-four push.
