Manchester United and Arsenal played out a drab 1-1 draw at Old Trafford last night, in a game bereft of the quality you traditionally associate with two of the Premier League’s big boys.
Scott McTominay put United ahead with a long shot that Gunners skipper Granit Xhaka ducked underneath, before Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang finished coolly after £80m Harry Maguire played him miles onside!
Liverpool are top of table on 21 points, after winning all seven of our opening fixtures – which is the same number of points as Arsenal and United combined.
That’s a pretty jaw-dropping statistic, and shows the gulf between Liverpool and two top six teams who can now only really be considered rivals in name.
Liverpool have better players, a far, far better manager and a fanbase united behind the vision for our future.
Arsenal and United have neither.
With Chelsea in rebuild, Tottenham occasionally shambolic and managed by an increasingly moody Maurizio Pochettino – the Premier League is already a two-horse race.
If it wasn’t for pesky Manchester City, Liverpool would walk the title, but we’ve never done it the easy way!
