If you take a look at the Premier League standings table right now, it looks as if Chelsea is the clear frontrunner. Indeed, the Blues are riding high on an undefeated streak of 6 wins and 1 draw-the best record in the division right now. Chasing just behind Chelsea, though, is last season's champion: Manchester City. Fans can cheer for a repeat victory with a brand new Man City football kit, now available at Soccer Box.

Man City's stock has gone up in the Premier League in recent years, thanks in part to championships in the 2011 2012 and 2013 2014 seasons. To keep up with the growing popularity, Soccer Box has stocked up on team kit, from shirts and tracksuits, to jerseys and much more. We even have the Manchester City third shirt 2014 2015, a deep purple football kit that nicely contrasts the club's light blue home shirt.

The Science of a Soccer Season

Chelsea's performance thus far in the 2014 2015 season has been enough to get many fans of English football to hop on the Blues bandwagon. After all, it isn't hard to see why the club is being flagged as the frontrunner: no other Premier League squad has won as many games (6) or scored as many goals (21). Add the fact that the Blues have been in the top position on the division table since the first week of play, and it isn't difficult to see why so many people are betting in favor of the Blues.

However, while Chelsea is certainly in the running for a Premier League trophy (its first since the 2009 2010 season), nothing is cut or dry just yet. The science of a football season, how standings shift and change from week to week or month to month, dictates that early standings are not necessarily an accurate barometer of where the chips will fall in May of each year.

2013 2014 Season History

One need look no further than the 2013 2014 Premier League to realize that their Manchester City third shirt 2014 2015 may yet become the kit of a two-time consecutive champion. And that's because the first five or six weeks of last year very much resembled the first five or six weeks of this one-at least as far as the Blues and the Manchester City Sky Blues are concerned.

Last year, Manchester City got off to a slow, unremarkable start. After a 4-0 victory against Newcastle United in week one-a win that briefly put Man City in the top slot-the Sky Blues suffered a handful of losses or draws to drop down the table a bit.

By week six, the Sky Blues had assembled a record of 3 wins, 1 draw, and 2 losses. Between weeks five and seven, the club oscillated between fifth and seventh place on the Premier League table. Few predicted that, come May, the Man City football kit would be the jersey atop the division podium.

On the opposite side of things was Chelsea, a club that-while not as dominant at this point last year as they have been this season-still started the year off strong. After weeks two, three, and five, the Blues were at the top of the table. Things slipped a bit after that, though the club ultimately returned to the top slot later in the season. They eventually settled for third place, after Man City and Liverpool.

Parallels for This Season

So what does this all mean, and why is it at all relevant for the 2014 2015 Premier League run that is currently underway? Because it shows that Chelsea is a club that starts off firing on all cylinders, while Manchester City is one more content to simply climb the ladder over time.

Indeed, last season, Man City flitted from one spot on the standings table to another. The club fell as far down the table as eighth place before climbing back up, reaching the top slot with the third-to-last match of the year, and winning the division. Fans should remember that as they don the Manchester City third shirt 2014 2015 to cheer for the Sky Blues: it's not about the early lead but about who holds the strongest until the end.

Will Manchester City prove strongest, or will Chelsea hold the top slot all season long? Only time will tell, but you can pick up a new Man City football kit at Soccer Box today!
