While we may never see another miracle season such as Leicester City had, the likes of Bournemouth and Watford will fancy their chances to make a run at a top seven finish.
For other teams after 10 games, such as Cardiff City, Fulham, and Newcastle United, the focus now has to be survival.
After Manchester City visits Tottenham Monday, we will be past the quarter poll already in the league. What will the next two months bring?

SATURDAY’S THREE STARS
Ben Foster, Watford
Keeper kept a clean sheet, as the Hornets won for the sixth time this season. Foster had seven saves, and was the Whoscored.com Man of the Match with a 9.03 rating.
Ryan Fraser, Bournemouth
Two more assists for Fraser, who now has five, in the 3-0 win. He was the Whoscored.com Man of the Match with an 8.69 rating.
Sadio Mane, Liverpool
Two goals for the forward, who led Liverpool back to the top of the table for now with a 4-1 victory. He was the Whoscored.com Man of the Match with a 9.14 rating.
HORNETS STING FULHAM, CHERRIES LOOK SWEET
With more than 25 percent of the season complete, both Bournemouth and Watford have six wins, and both currently sit in UEFA Europa League spots.
Bournemouth’s Ryan Fraser co-leads the Premier League with five assists, and has the Cherries in sixth place. In fact, the two teams have four of the top 10 assist-makers: Abdoulaye Doucoure (Watford, four), Jose Holebas (Watford, four), and Callum Wilson (Bournemouth, four)
The Cherries have 19 goals so far, with a plus-seven goal difference, while Watford has 16 goals (plus-four goal difference).
Both teams are well set up to finish inside the top-10.
FULHAM COACH ON HOT SEAT NEAR BOTTOM OF TABLE
Slavisa Jokanovic, who brought Fulham up from the EFL Championship after a slow start to the 2017-18 campaign, has seen his team once again begin another season poorly.
With one in in 10, after a 3-0 home defeat to Bournemouth Saturday, Jokanoic is now the second favorite (5-1 odds, behind Jose Mourinho at 2-1) to be the first manager sacked from his position. Those odds may shorten very quickly, unless the Cottagers can turn it around before the next international break after November 11.
“We have enough quality to score but we can’t find a way to find a clean sheet,” Jokanovic said after the loss. “The Premier League is tough not just for us but for many clubs. We are making expensive mistakes.
“I am not thinking about my future. I will be ready for the next challenge. I am living my present and that is today a very hard defeat. I must be brave and keep going and encourage my team.”
Fulham has games against Huddersfield (A) and Southampton (H) sandwiched between Liverpool (A) before the break, then comes back with Chelsea (A), Leicester City (H), and Manchester United (A).
Can Jokanovic save his job?

WHAT TO WATCH FOR SUNDAY
Can Arsenal extend its 11-game unbeaten streak in all competitions?
The Gunners have a London derby with Crystal Palace, which is struggling to get much going. The Eagles have just seven points, and need this match.
Will Jose Mourinho sit Romelu Lukaku, after the big striker has struggled to score goals over the last month?
A front three of Alexis Sanchez (if healthy), Anthony Martial, and Marcus Rashford could be unleashed at home against Everton.
Or maybe 17-year-old Mason Greenwood gets unleashed, after he has torn up the youth ranks for the Red Devils? Tahith Chong got the nod on the bench Tuesday against Juventus in the UEFA Champions League.
Could this be a time for a youth revolution with United?
I would not count on it.
