The first month of the English Premier League season has quietly passed. Players from some teams have already had their international duty and are now ready for the next leg in the championship.
We present our own Premier League team power ranking as of now. In this article, we will discuss the top four strongest teams.
1. Manchester City
There was a point this summer when it could be argued that Manchester City’s squad had weakened after the departures of İlkay Gündoğan and Riyad Mahrez. However, that is not the case anymore. They promptly signed Jeremy Doku and Matheus Nunes. Earlier, the roster was further complemented by Mateo Kovačić and Josko Guardiola. Even without Kevin De Bruyne, who’s absent for an extended period, they remain a tough team to beat both at home and away.
Four victories out of four in the Premier League already suggest they are on their way to a fourth consecutive title. Moreover, in every match, they seem to have an incredible depth of talent.

Losing new signing Jurriën Timber (£34 million, Ajax) to a knee injury for a significant portion of the season left Arsenal in a tough spot towards the end of the transfer window. Their attempts to sign a replacement depended on selling other players to free up funds and squad space, but they faced challenges till the end of the transfer period. Terminating the contract of Nicolas Pepe a year early to allow him a free transfer to Trabzonspor speaks volumes.
David Raya, loaned from Brentford for the season to add competition for Aaron Ramsdale, was the only recent acquisition. Arsenal hasn’t showcased their best yet, but 10 points out of a possible 12 and a promising start from record signing Declan Rice (£100 million, West Ham) suggest they are well in the championship fight.
The unexpected departures of Jordan Henderson and Fabinho to the Saudi Professional League left Liverpool scrambling for new midfielders in the final month of the transfer window; they failed to sign primary targets Moises Caicedo and young Southampton talent Romeo Lavia, both of whom moved to Chelsea.
Wataru Endo and Ryan Gravenberch eventually arrived from Stuttgart and Bayern respectively. However, the main news for Liverpool was the rejection of Al-Ittihad’s £150 million offer for Mohamed Salah on the last day of the transfer window.
Replacing the entire midfield in a single summer is a risky move by coach Jürgen Klopp, but he had few choices. At least they acted quickly in the summer, signing Alexis Mac Allister from Brighton and Dominik Szoboszlai from RB Leipzig.
Liverpool has adequate squad depth for competition; their defense and offensive capabilities remain robust, suggesting the club emerged positively from a challenging summer. Liverpool started well, taking 10 points out of a possible 12 and could again challenge Manchester City domestically.
4. Tottenham Hotspur
Harry Kane’s move to Bayern could have cast a shadow over Tottenham’s season, but the beginning under Ange Postecoglou’s leadership has rekindled enthusiasm among previously discontented fans. Three wins and 11 goals with newcomer James Maddison in the revamped attack suggest a promising future ahead of more challenging encounters.
Chairman Daniel Levy is known for his last-minute deals, and the purchase of Brennan Johnson from Nottingham Forest adds further excitement, although interest in Conor Gallagher from Chelsea and Bournemouth defender Lloyd Kelly materialized too late.
There’s speculation that the “Spurs” are still vulnerable in defense, but Postecoglou has made many Tottenham fans believe that the post-Kane era isn’t daunting. Positivity has replaced negativity, and the “Spurs” could challenge for the top four based on their start.
