Spurs are sitting pretty at the top, two points clear of Arsenal, while defending champions Man City look to be starting to kick into gear.
Just behind those three, Liverpool's new look midfield has helped them improve by nine points compared to this point last season.
But City's dominance, winning four out the last five league titles, often calls these contenders' hopes into question.
Here, Mail Sport assesses the current top five's title chances at this stage of the season.
Ange Postecoglou, fresh off a domestic treble with Celtic, has taken an eighth-place Spurs team with no Harry Kane to their best top-flight start since the 1960-61 season - the last time they won the league title.
Summer signings Guglielmo Vicario, Micky Van de Ven, Destiny Udogie, Brennan Johnson and James Maddison have all hit the ground running – the latter a candidate for signing of the summer, while Yves Bissouma, Pepe Matar Sarr and Son Heung-min have all enjoyed revivals.

Despite being the only top-five team to play all three promoted sides, they also boast wins against Liverpool and Manchester United and a draw in the north London derby.
Spurs are a lock for Champions League football - with only one side not finishing in the top four after a start this good - and with no European football this season, can focus on retaining their lead at the top of the table.
But they don't have the experience of last year's challengers Arsenal and Manchester City and no-one expected immediate league success, so it will not be a surprise if a title challenge isn't sustained.
Talk of a title race has been encouraged by City being two points worse off than this time last season following consecutive defeats by Wolves and Arsenal.
Yet Pep Guardiola's side have been defensively sound, with the lowest open-play xG against (5.12) and still have Erling Haaland, who with 47 Premier League goals is closing in on being the fastest player to reach 50.
They continue to control games, having the most passing sequences with 10 passes or more and 64 build-up attacks, a league high.
Erling Haaland has all the attributes to fire Manchester City to yet another Premier League title
A drop in form can raise questions of winning fatigue, following a treble last year, but Manchester City have already played four of last year's top six with wins against Newcastle, Brighton and Manchester United.
Arguably their best player, Kevin De Bruyne, has only played 22 minutes this season, whilst Stones and Rodri have missed games too.
At full strength they are still the best team in England and most will fancy them to represent that by lifting their fifth Premier League in six years. They are sure to take some stopping.
Arsenal's collapse towards the end of last season was a huge disappointment for Gunners fans - but it has at least added experience to the young side's armoury.
Statistically, they are second best in categories such as shots conceded, build-up attacks and open play xG against, but when you're chasing the likes of Man City, second best isn't enough.

Mikel Arteta's side will have learnt from the experience of failing to win the league last year
This is something they have come to understand and managed to turn around this season as they beat City in the league for the first time since 2015 in a tense 1-0 win at the Emirates earlier this month.
Despite Jurrien Timber's ACL injury, Arsenal's depth has, crucially, improved this season to sustain a challenge alongside Champions League competition – their substitutes have the most goal involvements of any side this season (10).
With this added depth, the motivation of last year's heartbreak and the added leadership of Declan Rice, Arsenal have all the ingredients to challenge City much closer this time around but could just fall short.
Liverpool and their new-look midfield are remarkably nine points better off than at this stage last season.
Dominik Szoboszlai has been key, taking the most touches, creating the most chances and winning possession most frequently in the final third out of all Liverpool's players, while the eager Darwin Nunez has had another year to refine his game following his £85million arrival from Benfica.
Anfield remains a very tough place to visit, with Liverpool winning five out of five home games and are still yet to play all three promoted sides.
Jurgen Klopp will be delighted with Dominik Szoboszlai's opening to his Liverpool career
Last season, Liverpool finished 22 points behind eventual champions Manchester City and it's fair to reason that won't be repeated based off the opening 10 games.
Jurgen Klopp's men have successfully taken on City before and usually get hot towards the end of the season, so if they can stay within reach of the challengers, they could mount a run.
But with this many new faces, Champions League football returning to Anfield will be the priority.
If Emery had started at the beginning of last season, his 71 points over 35 games would have had Villa 3rd with three games to go. Undoubtedly extraordinary, but still not title challenging.
This season's highest scorers have been aided by summer signing Moussa Diaby, with three goals and assists, as well as Ollie Watkins, who is averaging 0.51 open-play xG per 90.
However, they are worryingly mid-table in open play xG against and their high line was picked off by Newcastle and Liverpool, in two of the hardest Premier League away days.
Ollie Watkins has been superb goalscoring form for Aston Villa, who are currently fifth
Unai Emery has won widespread plaudits for the way his Villa side have played this season
Winning 12 home games in a row, a perfect five out five this season, will always move you favourably up the table but Champions League and Europa League spots are still hotly contested with Newcastle and Brighton still in the mix.
Nevertheless, the Villains are already making huge in-roads and will play Tottenham, Manchester City and Arsenal in their next six hoping to continue an Emery-fuelled meteoric rise.
While their start has been hugely promising, Villa do have European football to contend with, which may put a strain on their squad, and they may struggle to mount a concerted effort for the top four.
Manchester United will desperately be hoping for improvements and with Newcastle in the mix, a top-six finish would be a huge achievement.
