The concept of the «big six» clubs in the Premier League – Manchester City, Manchester United, Liverpool, Arsenal, Tottenham and Chelsea – still holds weight despite the rise of teams like Newcastle United, Aston Villa and Brighton. These established powerhouses boast the financial resources, wage bills and squad depth to consistently finish in the top four, even if Newcastle managed to break into that elite group last season. You can bet on any of these teams at Mostbet India – іt is a modern, reliable bookmaker with favourable odds and an excellent line. We will analyse their performances through the prism of games with each other.

The failure of Manchester United

The highly anticipated meetings between the big six can define entire campaigns. We’ve already witnessed some classic encounters in the early stages of 2023-24. Arsenal secured a monumental 1-0 victory away to champions Man City, their first league win over their rivals since 2015 under Mikel Arteta. In a captivating clash, they then twice led at home against Chelsea before having to settle for a 2-2 draw.

New Spurs boss Ange Postecoglou has made an impressive start, beating Man United 2-0 and holding Arsenal to a spirited 2-2 draw in the North London derby. A last-gasp 2-1 triumph over Liverpool maintained momentum. For Man United’s Erik ten Hag, problems winning away against top half teams have persisted from last term, with defeats already at Arsenal and Spurs.

Despite a slow beginning under Mauricio Pochettino, Chelsea produced an encouraging display to twice lead against Arsenal. Liverpool took 4 points from big six meetings last season amid difficulties, but have claimed just 1 so far, losing at Spurs.

City boss Pep Guardiola will be eager to improve their big six record after defeat at Arsenal. With the financial gap only widening, the supremacy of these clubs over the rest of the league remains clear. The race for bragging rights promises to be hard fought.

Arsenal currently lead the mini-league after statement results so far. Spurs are second, while City prop up the unusual position of sixth – not where Guardiola expects to be. With many titanic tussles still to come, the battle for big six supremacy will be intense this campaign. Momentum in these fixtures could prove pivotal in the scrap for major honours.

The only team that still looks like an extra member of the best is Manchester United.

Standings

We have a clear outsider in the form of the Red Devils. Thet lost to Tottenham 0:2 and Arsenal 1:3. So far, three clubs have not lost – Arsenal, Tottenham and Chelsea.
