Hottest Clubs

2. Southampton

Southampton has the most overwhelming defense in the EPL. It’s surrendered three measly goals this season—just once since the start of September. Its only loss occurred back on Aug. 31, a 1-0 letdown to Norwich City.

Southampton’s offense isn’t as explosive as the top three clubs in the league right now, but its defense will keep it in contention for a title. According to WhoScored.com, it concedes only 9.8 shots per game—the third-lowest rate in the EPL—compared to the 13.9 it attempts.

 

1. Arsenal

The Gunners haven’t lost a Premier League match since their first showdown of the season. That occurred all the way back on Aug. 17. Their streak will be tested this week against 6-2-1 Liverpool, which is on fire in its own right, but no club is as hot as Arsenal.

The emergence of 22-year-old midfielder Aaron Ramsey has carried the team to new heights. Ramsey has recorded five goals, tied for fourth in the EPL, and four assists, tied for first in the EPL. He and Olivier Giroud have sparked the Gunners to the second-most goals in the league, 22, and the highest goal differential, 11.

 

Coldest Clubs

2. Aston Villa

Aston Villa’s No. 13 ranking doesn’t scream “coldest,” but it won’t stay that high in the table for long if its offense continues to slump. Aston Villa hasn’t scored a goal in its last three matches. That includes two 2-0 losses to Everton and Tottenham Hotspur and a 0-0 draw to Hull City. 

It’s difficult to believe that this club defeated Arsenal 3-1 this season.

 

1. Crystal Palace

Crystal Palace has won a match once. It defeated Sunderland by the score of 3-1 back on Aug. 31, but since then, it’s lost six straight matches. 

Crystal Palace can’t even force draws. Each of those six losses came by multiple goals. It’s going to be a long year for the team that’s already been outscored by 13 goals in just nine games.
