With the international break upon us, now seems as good a time as any to take a look back at how the new Premier League campaign is coming along.
Seven games in and we already have a fair idea as to how the season is going to unfold - David Moyes will be under pressure, the battle for the top four will be relentless and Sam Allardyce will be on the verge of exploding.
We've all seen the action so far and it is fairly easy to see each teams strengths and weaknesses, but it's quite hard to get an objective view as to how they have started the new campaign.
Well, fret no more because we have done the hard work for you and can now tell you if your team are going to soar to the top or sink like a stone.
Looking at the corresponding fixtures from last season where possible, we've gathered together the results from the 'Big Five' from this season and compared them to how they got on last season.
So in theory we should be able to see fairly easily if they have got better or worse than last season, and by definition if they will finish higher or lower than last term. Simple, and no more accusations of easy starts, right?
Note: Results against newly promoted sides have been omitted
