After a break before the 2022 World Cup, the Premier League is back with a bang and the start of 2023 has been a lot of fun.
Who look like title contenders and/or favorites?
Nearly halfway through the 2022-23 season, Arsenal and Manchester City look head and shoulders above the rest, although Newcastle have no intention of leaving and Manchester United have entered the fray.
The Gunners will be busy during the title challenge as Erling Haaland continues to storm the Premier League with an almost unbelievable goal scoring record.

An uneven Tottenham Hotspur hangs in the battle for the top four, with Liverpool struggling to stay in the Champions League scrap. Chelsea have a lot of work to do, while Fulham and Brighton are surprisingly stuck on the fringes with great campaigns.
Who are the dropout candidates?
Everton, Bournemouth and Southampton currently occupy the relegation spots.
But Leicester, West Ham, Nottingham Forest, Wolverhampton and Leeds were just a few points away from the bottom three after starting upside down.
Below you will find the latest Premier League table.
Premier League Standings – January 23
Frank Lampard has been sacked by Everton after a catastrophic drop in form amid major fan unrest against owners and board of directors.

The club confirmed Lampard’s sacking on Monday afternoon following morning reports that Everton had cut ties with the manager. Lampard has been in charge of Everton for less than a year.
Everton are currently 19th in the Premier League with just 15 points from their first 20 games of the season. They have picked up just one point in their last seven games and Saturday’s 2-0 defeat to West Ham appears to be the final nail in Lampard’s coffin.
Everton sacking Frank Lampard
Everton Football Club can confirm that Frank Lampard stepped down from his position as senior men’s first team manager today.
Joe Edwards, Paul Clement, Ashley Cole and Chris Jones also left the club.
Alan Kelly will remain goaltending coach.
Everyone at Everton would like to thank Frank and his coaching staff for their hard work during these challenging 12 months.
The commitment and dedication of Frank and his team has been exemplary throughout their time at the club, but recent results and current league position meant this difficult decision had to be made. We wish Frank and all his behind-the-scenes team the best of luck for their future in the game.
The club has begun searching for a new manager and will provide an update on the appointment in due course.
Paul Tate and Leighton Baines will be in training until a new manager is appointed.
Of course, Lampard is to blame for the game on the field and the fact that Everton got into another mess.
He kept them up in dramatic fashion last season, but the Everton board didn’t back him into the summer window and the same problems remain both on and off the pitch.
In recent weeks, Everton fans have stepped up their protests against majority owner Farhad Moshiri, longtime chairman Bill Kenwright and the entire board.
Lampard was liked by most Evertonians and was considered only part of the problem, not the main problem.
Whoever comes next has to somehow get Everton back on the regular goal scoring and keep a solid enough defensive unit intact and also unify the fan base as they have another relegation problem.
Kevin De Bruyne’s insipid passing numbers raise a lot of considerations and we have to wonder if the Manchester City star ever wondered if the Premier League record would be his in a world where José Mourinho put him to the best use at Chelsea “.
De Bruyne’s 11 assists this season in the Premier League – four more than his closest rivals Arsenal’s Bukayo Saki and Manchester United’s Christian Eriksen – give him 97 career assists. This is fifth place in history, two more than Dennis Bergkamp, and 65 (?!) behind record holder Ryan Giggs.

The 31-year-old Belgian star moved to Chelsea from Werder Bremen at the age of 22 and scored just 425 goals in half a season before being transferred to Wolfsburg. Back in the Bundesliga, De Bruyne provided six assists the rest of the way before scoring 21 goals the following season to prepare for a move to Manchester City.
Since then, he has been Premier League Playmaker of the Season twice, including in 2019/20 with 20 assists, and is close to doing so three out of six. Harry Kane, Mohamed Salah and Eden Hazard also received the award, which is only five years old.
De Bruyne also led the Premier League in assists in 2016/17, a year before the championship, but the name is on the line.
His stats hint that there’s more to come, as “KDB” generates an insipid 3.61 moments per 90 minutes. After a season in which he scored 15 times and had eight assists, De Bruyne is once again taunting anyone who dares harass him in terms of goal setting (some guy named Erling Haaland helps…).
Take a look at De Bruyne’s brilliant stats and read on to find out who’s chasing him on the Premier League assists leaderboard for the 2022-23 season.
