Fair point, though these three teams are decidedly different from West Brom or Stoke having a hot start. Tottenham, Everton and Liverpool were already the upper mid-table and all three made major additions during the summer. Chelsea, United and City are still monster teams, but it may take 75 points to make the CL slots this season. They aren't going to have as much wiggle room as in previous seasons.
The main challengers are out of the gate strong. And Tottenham is deep. Everton and Liverpool aren't playing Europa League and both went out of the Carling Cup (or whatever they're calling it these days) in the first round.
