In other news, Manchester United win the league.
It was our rival's first 'Premier League' title - but what is more significant is how they started the season - losing two of the first four games and crashing to six defeats during the campaign.
Of course my point is that three games into a 38-game season is not the time to start writing off a team's chances of winning the league.
Not that it's stopped anyone.
Ironically, no team has ever won the Premier League after losing just two games - and don't we know it.
Turns out, a much more fashionable number of defeats is five. So that's alright then...
