If we count United as a big 6. United hasn't been this year
But they are clearly a big 6 team.
The only reason to exclude them is so you can try and crap on Tottenham.
I've done it for other teams, too. They're even on points with Watford. Should I include Watford, Bournemouth, and Wolves? It's clear that the team isn't playing to its full potential and treating them as if they are is useful only to prop up Tottenham
If you want to include them sure. Include whoever you want, it doesn't change the fact that Tottenhams schedule isn't propping them up any more than other teams.
For example Arsenal has not played a more difficult schedule.
To do this again,
City (H), Chelsea (A), West Ham (H), Cardiff (A), Newcastle (A), Everton (H), Watford (H), Fulham (A) = 81 points
Newcastle (A), Fulham (H), ManU (A), Watford (A), Liverpool (H), Brighton (A), Huddersfield (A), Cardiff (H) = 66 points
But sure, go off.
You are using point totals 8 games into the season as if it matters?
I know that Arsenal fans are desperate to try and spin this season as great for them but using 8 game point totals is weak even for you.
Yes instead we should use Baxterman's words.
I don't have to spin ****. We're fourth right now, two points back, looking good with a new coach.
No we should look at the teams and use common sense.
Neither of those schedules is much more or less difficult than the other. Neither one would have resulted in a change of points based on the teams faced.
If you gave Arsenal United away instead of Chelsea away, Arsenal is top of the table.
You wish, United may have their issues but they still win that game.
But if we are just making stuff up if you give Tottenham City at home instead of Liverpool we are top of the league.
The gap between Chelsea and dysfunctional United this year is much much larger than the nonexistent gap between Liverpool and City, but by all means continue.
Who cares what the gap is teams on lower points beat teams above them all the time.
Arsenal especially isn't good enough to say that they automatically beat anyone. It is ridiculous to say switch this team and we get 3 automatic points.
United would destroy that pathetic backline of Arsenals.
Its not relevant to your discussion but what about Liverpool? I'm on mobile and would be interested to see. I imagine it's pretty high given they've faced Chelsea, Spurs, City and Leicester but I'm not sure.
Nvm I checked it and it seems like it's 97 points. Not the easiest of starts for poor ol Liverpool.
West Ham (H), Palace (A), Brighton (H), Leicester (A), Tottenham (A), Soton (H), Chelsea (A), City (H) = 97 points
West Ham: Liverpool (A), Bournemouth (H), Arsenal (A), Wolves (H), Everton (A), Chelsea (H), Manchester United (H), Brighton (A) = 122 points
Van Dijk, Mo Salah, Sadio Mane and now Naby keita all injured on international duty. Great national team break for Liverpool.
Most of them, if not all, should be fit for the Huddersfield game though.
Nice little article on Gini.
How Wijnaldum went from frustrating figure to key man
That's like 6 new signings...
Big three points for Brighton today. I think it will be another season where they do just enough to stay alive.
Don't be modest, they downed the best team in the Prem!

Leicester City owner’s helicopter crashes near stadium after match
I don't know but I'd say that it would be a miracle if anyone survived that.
