I guess it would be funny to think that any of Aston Villa or Everton would have played the entire 2020/21 season without suffering any loss.
Well, this was not eventually the case as Arsenal fans have nothing to worry about concerning the status of their unbeaten record.
The only teams with a 100 percent record in the 2020/21 Premier League thus far fell to shock losses, going by their standards, to the likes of Leeds United and Southampton.
Aston Villa lost 3 nil at Villa Park to newly-promoted Marcelo Bielsa’s Leeds United in a game which the visitors dominated and won convincingly with a well-taken hat-trick by Patrick Bamford.
The result eventually ended Villa’s 100% start to the Premier League this season and it came as a surprise, especially as they were at home.
Regardless, Leeds United have proven to be a side that should not be underrated irrespective of the venue of a game.
Aston Villa were coming off the back of a 1 nil win away to Leicester City and one would have thought that they would have been too good for Leeds but the reverse was the case.
They have an outstanding game against Arsenal and currently sit 3rd on the log with 4 wins and 1 loss in 5 games.
The other 100 percenters Everton survived the Merseyside Derby on Match Day 5 but found Southampton too formidable at the St Mary’s on the next matchday.
They lost 2 nil after performing poorly on the day. They still sit top but it’s obviously only a question of; For how long?
Last season we had Liverpool threatening to go unbeaten before Watford spoilt the show towards the end of the season. This won’t be the case this season as every team in the league has suffered a loss this early into the season.
Liverpool have shown that they’ll be looking to defend their title while the likes of Manchester City, Chelsea, and Manchester United are still getting to grips with what the season has produced thus far.
The title race hasn’t taken shape yet with regards to the noteworthy contenders. However, there won’t be headlines of any team threatening to go unbeaten after just 6 games this term. Strange indeed!
