With just a few games remaining in the Premier League, the table is really taking shape. The title has already been won, but relegation and the European places are still undecided.
The table has drastically changed when compared to last season, with a number of teams faring differently this time around.
Here are how all 17 Premier League teams compare to this time last season:
17) Liverpool – 18 points worse (36 games)
The Merseyside outfit were propelled upwards last season by the brilliance that is Luis Suarez. His departure has seen them struggle, and they once again look to have missed out on Champions League football.
- ‘Maybe it was a mistake’ admits Arsene Wenger on missed Arsenal signing
- Arsenal are among ‘20 clubs’ keen to sign 12 goal striker in the new year
- Willian reveals he has been left ‘frustrated’ by his start at Arsenal
16) Everton – 15 points worse (36 games)
It’s been a bizarre season for the Toffees, and it’s actually hard to believe they aren’t bottom of this table. They have seen a slight upturn in form in the second half of the season, but they have really struggled for the majority of the campaign.
15) Newcastle – 10 points worse (36 games)
The Magpies looked like a comfortable middle table team under Alan Pardew, but the fans wanted more. They abused their manager until he left for Crystal Palace, and have been on a downward spiral – which could even see them relegated – ever since.
14) Tottenham – Eight points worse (36 games)
Another bang average season from a team that suffers severe delusions of grandeur. They have missed out on Champions League, and aren’t even guaranteed Europa League at this point.
13) Manchester City – Seven points worse (36 games)
It’s been a mixed bag this season for the former champions, and they will be disappointed at their inability to challenge for the title. Despite their massive expenditure, they are left with an ageing squad, and could be on the decline.
