The start of the tournament was marked by a number of surprises. In the first round, it was not the first but the last that the favorites were able to take advantage of the situation.
In the first half of the season, the teams of the elite were not in a good mood. The main protagonists of the fight for gold medals were:
* the teams from the top of the English Premier League;
* Spain;
* Portugal.

The latter, in particular, has been in the middle of the pack for a long time. In recent years, the team has been gradually moving up the standings. However, it still has a long way to go.
However, the first quarter-final round of the new season was marked not by the most unexpected results, but by the fact that the teams were not at the same level.
This is why the first matches of the quarter- finals were quite interesting. The first matches were played in the first weekend of August. The teams played against each other in the following matches:
1. Championship of England;
2. Championship match of the Netherlands;
3. League match of Spain.
All the matches were held in the same day.
After the first rounds, it became clear that the first match of each of the teams was decisive. The following teams were in the lead:
• Wales;
• Portugal;
1st: Liverpool; 2nd: Manchester City; 3rd: Arsenal.
At the same time, the competitors were: Chelsea; Tottenham; Leicester; Manchester United.
It is worth noting that the English teams are quite unstable in the Premier League. In addition, the season is long and the teams have a lot of matches ahead. The results of the matches of Liverpool and Arsenal were quite unexpected.
What to expect from the teams that are fighting for the title?
The teams of top-4 are quite stable. The only exception is Chelsea. The team has a good squad, but is not in the best shape.
Liverpool has the best lineup in the league. The Reds are in the strongest position in the English championship for a number years. The club has a number players who are able to play in the starting lineup. However the team is not the strongest in the domestic championship.
Manchester City has the strongest lineup in England. The previous season, Josep Guardiola’s team was able to win the championship. However this time, it is not so easy for the team to win gold medals.
Arsenal has a very good squad. The Gunners have a number good players who can play in any position. However they have a problem with the defense. The problem is that the team does not have a good goalkeeper.
Chelsea is in the second place of the standings, but it is far from the first. The Blues are in a bad shape. The squad has a lot problems with injuries.
2nd: Tottenham Hotspur.
Tottenham is in a better shape than Chelsea. However it is still far from first place. The Spurs have a very interesting lineup. The coach has a great choice of players. However he does not use all of them.
3rd: Leicester.
Leicester is not at its best. The players are tired of the struggle for gold. The head coach has to use all his players to achieve the desired result.
4th: Manchester United is in last place.
Despite the fact, that the season has been long, the Red Devils are still far behind the leaders. The current season is not a good one for the club.
Who will win the title in the new campaign?
In this season, Manchester United has a chance to win again. The Red Devils have a great lineup and are able not only to win, but also to finish in the top-3.
Of course, the main goal of the team this season is to win a trophy. The season is still young, so the team needs time to recover. However there are a lot chances for the next season.
