The Premier League season is now in full swing and we're starting to get an idea of the real title challengers. 

The two Manchester clubs, City and United lead the way on 16 points, with Chelsea just behind on 13.  

Of course, there's plenty of football to be played yet, but after six games fans are getting a feel of what's to come.   

Tottenham and Liverpool round off the top five, with both teams on 11 points and little to separate them.   

After cruising to the title last season champions Chelsea will have their work cut out to defend it this year.

The standard of football being played this term is already very intense and it appears that it's going to be more than a two-horse race to the top come May.     

In fact, Antonio Conte has paid huge respect to his rivals by suggesting that any one of six teams could win the league this time around.

Unsurprisingly, he believes that the two Manchester sides will be challenging, alongside the 2016/17 runners-up, Spurs.


"This year will be harder [to win the league] because the two Manchester teams are back and there is also Tottenham," the Italian explained, per the Mirror.

Putting money on any of those teams would be a pretty safe bet, but Conte believes there are two more teams in contention. 

"Without forgetting Liverpool and Arsenal. It is really a big battle.”


Suggesting Arsenal are in with a shout may come as quite a surprise, especially after the start the Gunners have made.

Arsene Wenger's side are currently in 12th, although if they win against West Brom on Monday they could jump up to seventh. 

Even if they do take three more points, Arsenal will still have a lot of work to do if they're to challenge for the title over the next eight months as Conte suggests.
