ESPN's man with the mic Jon Champion looks ahead to the weekend's Premier League action. Watch live and exclusive coverage of QPR vs Manchester City live on ESPN from 4:30pm on SaturdayYou’d have no difficulty identifying the surprise package of the Premier League season so far. Newcastle United sit in third place after ten matches, having made their best start to a season since Sir Bobby Robson’s tenure as manager. It’s helped that they’ve not had to change their team much, it will be interesting to see what happens when injuries and suspensions begin to bite. Their fixture list to date has perhaps been a little kind, but they’ve got a trio of games against the current top three coming up, and that will give a truer indication of exactly how good this team can be. Even so, to be ten games into the season and still be one of only two unbeaten teams is a notable achievement. Their success has been based on the most miserly defence in the Premier League, but the impact of the new boys – particularly Yohan Cabaye and Demba Ba – has been both substantial and instantaneous, and perhaps some of their opponents have underestimated them somewhat.This Saturday they welcome Everton, who at the start of the season you would probably have tipped as the most likely team to trouble last season’s top six. That might still happen, but, Newcastle’s progress is such that they’re looking in better shape than Everton right now. The Toffees’ limitations were shown up against Chelsea and Manchester United, and while a top half finish certainly isn’t beyond them, they are having to adjust their sights because of the strangulation being applied by the lack of money at the club. It’s clearly taking effect and I think David Moyes may privately acknowledge that, though publicly he can’t come out and say quite as clearly. For once, these aren’t the kind of problems being suffered at St James’ Park. There’s a great sense of togetherness, and the thing that strikes me as encouraging about Newcastle than anything else is that they genuinely are a team rather than a disparate group of players.

Forging a career in football isn’t easy, even less so if you’re following in the illustrious footsteps of an older sibling. The added burden of living up to expectations set high thanks to the actions of a relative can sometimes take its toll.
