Liverpool strengthened their hold on top of the Premier League as Georginio Wijnaldum and Roberto Firmino fired them to a 2-1 victory over Tottenham Hotspur at Wembley Stadium on Saturday. The team looks very balanced and it's going to be very tough for Tottenham, despite home advantage.
The season after that incredible invincles season, Arsene Wenger's Arsenal side had the ideal start to the season winning their first five games before Bolton held them to a draw.

Virgil Van Dijk has offered his Liverpool FC team-mate Andy Robertson warm words of praise after the full-back was given the captain's armband for Scotland. Simon Mignolet has been replaced in goal by the £66 million summer signing Alisson Becker, while Lovren, Joel Matip and Alberto Moreno have all been dislodged in the months since.
Dele Alli and Hugo Lloris are both out for Spurs, but Son makes a return for them from the Asian games (where South Korea won Gold). There are lots of games ahead. The striker did net twice in August for Tottenham, but he hasn't found the net in the last two games for the north London club and his scoring touch evaded him in last Saturday's England loss to Spain.
Mauricio Pochettino had accused Tottenham of treating their 2-1 loss at Watford like a "testimonial". In the first half, they deserved more.
Liverpool, who finished as runners-up in the Champions League last season, were forced to settle with a fourth placed finish in the league last season, which they secured during the final weekend of fixtures. Sure you will be punished for the team and quality they have on the pitch.
Substitutes: Henderson (6), Sturridge (N/A), Matip (N/A). "That is how it is, the body needs the time only to calm down from an intense season - they didn't have it".
