The verdict

Looking at the fixture list, Chelsea and West Ham will face five of the top seven in their next 10 matches.

Thomas Tuchel’s impact at Stamford Bridge will be throughout examined with the Blues taking on Manchester United, Liverpool and Everton in their next three league fixtures.

United and City both take on four of the top seven in their next 10, with three of those encounters come in United’s next four games, making their upcoming run crucial in the overall picture of their season.

For Leicester City, Liverpool and Everton, they’ll only take on two of the top seven, making their runs a lot kinder. Seven of the Foxes’ remaining eight games are against teams currently in the bottom half of the table, which could give them an advantage when jostling within the top three.

For United, four of their other six matches are against bottom-half clubs, whilst City take on five teams below 10th.

The reigning champions, Liverpool, face six of the bottom half, with Everton taking on five. Overall, it’s Leicester in the driving seat, with West Ham and Chelsea facing the toughest runs.
