#5 Arsenal and Liverpool send early markers
In a sign of how ultra competitive the Premier League is, after the first two rounds of matches, only two teams have maintained a 100% record.
The Gunners kicked off their campaign with a hard fought 1-0 victory away to Newcastle at St James' Park, and followed that up with another narrow 2-1 win over Burnley at The Emirates.
For their part, last season's runners-up Liverpool kicked off the new season on the opening day with a convincing 4-1 victory over Norwich City, and followed that up with a nervy 2-1 away against Southampton to sit pretty at the top of the table.
Both Liverpool and Arsenal would seek to build on from their second and fifth placed respective finishes last season, and their impressive start to the new campaign suggests that they are on the right path.
However, one of these two teams or even both of them could see the end of their 100% start when the two clubs clash at Anfield next week.
