Former Newcastle striker Alan Shearer believes there is one key reason why Chelsea and Arsenal are having a better season than Manchester City and Liverpool — structure.

Talking on Match of the Day after this weekend’s fixtures, Shearer said: “The two teams with the best spine are sitting at the top of the league, Chelsea and Arsenal.

“And you look at Manchester City, they’ve brought in players to try and play a different way, with a goalkeeper, it’s not necessarily working.

“Liverpool certainly not settled at all. But the two settled sides with the two biggest spines are Chelsea and Arsenal and that’s why they’re sat at the top of the league at this moment in time.”
