First Premier League Team To Reach 15 Points

Getting off to a fast start in the Premier League doesn’t guarantee a team will go on to win the title, but it can certainly play a major role. As Manchester City showed last season, it’s not about how you start a season, it’s about how you finish it. No team has won four successive Premier League titles, but City can do that this time around, and they start the season as favourite with many football betting sites to do so.

Arsenal were the first team to reach 15 points last season after winning all five of their opening fixtures to set the early pace. The Gunners actually won nine of their first 10 matches, but they were unable to maintain that standard all the way through to the end of the season.

Just three wins in their last nine league games put paid to their hopes of winning their first title since Arsenal’s Invincibles went the whole 2003/04 season without losing a game before winning the title by 11 points. Manchester City's tried and tested squad peaked at the right time to win 12 in a row at the back end of the season to win their third title in a row. 

So who will be the first team to get to 15 points this season? Bookies.com has analysed the opening fixtures of all 20 Premier League teams and come up with hypothetical odds on which team has the best chance of getting 15 points on the board before any other side.

Sheffield United

West Ham
Luton Town

Three of the 20 clubs have made a 100% start to the new Premier League season. At the other end of the table, five clubs are hoping this weekend will see them get their first point of the season. 

This weekend, Brighton, Manchester City and Arsenal put their perfect starts on the line, but will they still have a 100% record at the end of the weekend's action?

Three teams can get to nine points this season this weekend and stay ahead of the rest of the pack in the race to get 15 points. Defending champions Manchester City are one of those teams with a perfect start after beating Burnley 3-0 and Newcastle 1-0. Pep Guardiola will be absent on the sidelines for the next two games as he undergoes minor surgery on his back, but the good news for the manager is that this is a good time to be sidelined. 

City face Sheffield United this weekend before facing Fulham, West Ham and Nottingham Forest after that. It's by far the easiest schedule of any of the remaining teams with two wins from two games. Without their manager on the sideline and in the dressing room before and during the games, City are favourites on betting apps to get the win this weekend.

Brighton might be the shock name at the top of the table, but there should be no surprise that Roberto de Zerbi's side are setting the early pace. This weekend, Brighton host West Ham at the Amex Stadium looking to win their third game. Their first two games ended in 4-1 wins but they will happily take a 1-0 win this weekend. 

Brighton made a very good start to last season taking 10 points from their first four games when Graham Potter was still in charge of the side. They are two points better off than this stage last season and they are favourites on UK betting sites to win this weekend's game against the Hammers, which will tell us more about this season's Seagulls.
