This Season’s Teams that are Performing Better or Worse than Expected

Arsenal are first in the Premier League, despite having failed to finish in the top 4 for the last 6 seasons. Currently, they are ahead of defending champions Manchester City by 5 points, and finished at the top of their Europa League group. They have only lost one match in each tournament so far.

Newcastle United have improved massively under their new owners. They have gone from finishing the Premier League 11th last season to being 3rd after 15 matches. They have only lost one match in the league season so far, and seem likely to play European football next season.

Napoli, on the other hand, are leading the Serie A table by a huge margin. They finished at the top of their group in the UEFA Champions League above last season’s finalists, Liverpool. If they continue at this form, they seem likely to win the Serie A and be strong contenders for the Champions League trophy.

Meanwhile in Spain, Seville have astonishingly dropped in form. They have finished in the top 4 of LaLiga for the past 4 seasons, and won the Europa League in 2020. However, they are currently in the relegation zone of LaLiga at 18th place.
