The Fab Four

The Champions League is one of the biggest tournaments a club can play in. Every year, teams play to qualify and if you do, you receive one of the highest honors in European soccer; the chance to play against the best of the best. Achieving this feat is a challenging task.

4. Tottenham Hotspurs

After finishing 8th in the table last season, the London club changed their roster during the summer. Top scorer and Tottenham legend Harry Kane decided to leave the club and England altogether, signing with German giant Bayern Munich for a fee of over €100 million. With the absence of the captain,

winger Son Heung-Min was appointed captain, with new signing James Maddison made vice-captain along with defender Cristian Romero. The team's record so far this season has been good. With only four games played, the Spurs have recorded three wins and one draw. After tying their first game 2-2 to Brentford, the London club went on to win their next three games, including a massive 2-0 over Manchester United. If they keep performing the way they are now and key players such as Maddison and Heung-Min keep shining, I see no problem in them reaching the top 4.

3. Arsenal

The run this team had last year was something many found unimaginable. They lead the league for so long, staying alongside Manchester City and winning games in incredible fashion. Although the result was far from what they and the fans of this North London team wanted, there was much to grow on for this season and the boys have done so already. Three wins in four games, with a draw against Fulham, has set this team alight. A huge win against Manchester United that resulted in two goals, one being the winner, in the late minutes of added time, had the Emirates shaking. Continuing this form and keeping key players like Bukayo Saka, new signing Declan Rice, and captain Martin Ødegaard fit and consistent will be a game-changer this season.

2. Liverpool

Coming off a not-so-nice season last year and letting go of a chunk of players in the off-season led to many fans of this Merseyside club waiting in anticipation for what was to come. Four big signings, new captaincy roles, and a team-wide hunger to win have made the start of the Reds season refreshing. A draw with Chelsea on the first day of the season and then back-to-back-to-back wins, including a crucial extra-time winner against Newcastle with Darwin Nunez scoring a brace with just minutes left. The midfield signings have proven just how good they are, with Alexis Mac Allister dictating games and Dominik Szoboszlai cruising after registering two man-of-the-match awards and scoring his first goal for Liverpool. If the Reds keep this up, stay clear from injuries that have plagued them for the last few years, and stick with their plan, I see no issue in them qualifying for the Champions League or even pushing for the Premier League win.

1. Manchester City

With a treble winning season, becoming European Champions and Premier League Winners for the 3rd year in a row, and numerous records broken, it is no surprise that I think City will not only qualify for the Champions League but also win the Premier League. Goal scorer, Golden boot winner, and Ballon d’Or nominee Erling Haaland has already started the season on a high. Scoring six goals in four games, three coming in the form of a hat trick. A season record of four wins in four games has given the Manchester side a head start in the race for the league. However, with key player Kevin De Bryune out for a reasonable amount of time, fans of other clubs might be able to keep some hope. Then again, with the additions of Mateo Kovacic and Joško Gvardiol, they are still in good contention.
