Two weeks are nearly in the books, with Monday's Man United v. Wolves game the last remaining fixture of match day 2.

So far, Liverpool are on top with Man City getting screwed by VAR after they had seemingly won in the dying moments against Spurs. Liverpool's attacking players don't look quite as sharp this year as last year in the early going. City look absolutely rampant on offense, but still have some questions at the back.

Chelsea are a shambles right now. Without Antonio Rudiger, the defense is suspect, and really, Caesar Azpilicueta has hit his expiration date, much like Branislav Ivanovic did a few years ago. Chelsea need a right back and a number 9 in the worst way.

United's game against Wolves tonight is huge for their top 6 ambitions. Wolves are a good team with a very good coach. United's 3 new guys in defense have helped so far, but it was only an in-crisis Chelsea that they beat.

Arsenal have looked pretty good so far. David Luiz will be an improvement to their back line. Their attack is outstanding, and they haven't even played their new signing yet.

Who are your surprises so far?

They were fun and they played with verve. They kind of reminded me of Eddie Howe's Bournemouth team when they first came up.

I was honestly worried about Arsenal as I think they made some solid signings... Liverpool handled them with ease without hitting top gear. It’s crazy how top heavy the league has become. It’s not like Liverpool have bought the best team money could buy... Arsenal probably has out spent them. It shows what having the best manager in the world buying players for his system can do.
