The FKF Kenya Premier League table is telling an intriguing story as the season enters matchweek 11, with the excitement already heightening.
The regular big guns remain Gor Mahia (the defending champions), Tusker, AFC Leopards and Kakamega Homeboyz.
While Gor Mahia and Tusker are holding their own and keeping pace with the league leaders, Ulinzi Stars and Sofapaka are struggling.
With every Kenyan club booted out of the CAF Champions League and Confederation Cup, all the teams will focus on their domestic outings to finish in a respectable position on the FKF Premier League table.
Gor Mahia was miffed by their disqualification from the CAF Champions League and would want to win the season again to return to the continent.
After five weeks and the season beginning to pick up pace, how does the FKF Kenya Premier League table look and who is the most likely to win the prize money?

They have beaten fellow promoted side Shabana 1-0 and Kakamega Homeboyz to stay in the 3rd place.
The newly promoted side looks destined to return from whence they came.
They are yet to win any game and have three draws.
If they are to stay alive in this division, they have to start pulling their weight.
