Chelsea and Liverpool have declared their intent to triumph in the Premier League this season with five matches already played. Stats show the two Premier League heavyweights who have had a fine start to the season have identical results so far as they push for title glory. Both teams have picked up 13 points to sit joint-top on the Premier League standings. But it does not end there as both teams have also scored 12 goals and conceded just once - during their Premier League meeting which ended 1-1. While Chelsea opened their campaign with a 3-0 triumph over Crystal Palace, Liverpool saw off Norwich by a similar scoreline. Thomas Tuchel’s wards then stunned Arsenal 2-0 at the Emirates, just hours after Jurgen Klopp’s team recorded a 2-0 home victory over Burnley. The third round of the fixtures saw both teams square off at Anfield where they shared the spoils. The west Londoners went on to hit three past Aston Villa at Stamford Bridge, a result replicated by the Merseysiders against Leeds United at Elland Road. And on Saturday, as Liverpool thrashed Crystal Palace 3-0 at Anfield, Chelsea recorded the same result a day later against Tottenham Hotspur. Chelsea now sit atop the standings for alphabetical reasons - but could win the league by that technicality.
