The Premier League Table Since Christmas Day Looks Very Different

The Premier League Table Since Christmas Day Looks Very Different

The Premier League is known for being ridiculously unpredictable but it's gone up another gear this season.

COVID-19, a packed fixture schedule and no fans being in attendance has undoubtedly played a part. In fact, the post-Christmas league table is very different to what it looked like after matchweek 14.

Liverpool had just smashed Crystal Palace 7-0 at Selhurst Park and were four points clear of Leicester City at the top of the table.

Manchester City, meanwhile, moved up to eighth in the table after a hard-fought 1-0 win over Southampton. Although they had a game in hand,Pep Guardiola's side found themselves eight points off the champions after a slow start to the season.

But fast forward to the present day and things have changed dramatically.

With an incredible 12 wins from as many Premier League games since Christmas Day, City are 12 points clear of Manchester United, who are in second.

A Premier League table since Christmas would actually see West Ham occupying second spot after a superb run under David Moyes. In their last 12 games, the Hammers have won seven, drawn three and lost twice.

Arsenal were 15th going into 25 December but it's been a remarkable turnaround from Mikel Arteta's troops. Since a 2-1 defeat to Everton on 19 December, they've taken 23 points and would be in third position.

Leicester, who Arsenal beat 3-1 at the weekend, are a point behind in fourth in the post-Christmas table, with United in fifth after six disappointing draws.

If you were to create a table based on results after Christmas, they would be in 16th after winning just three and losing six of their last 12.

Merseyside rivals Everton were the latest team to beat them but even they have been below par following a brilliant start to the campaign under Carlo Ancelotti.

Ahead of the Monday Night Football this evening, they've collected just 14 points from 10 games, which has them in 14th place in the post-Christmas standings.

Spurs have tailed off to wind up in 10th, but the biggest drop has been experienced by Ralph Hassenhuttl's Southampton.

Going well before Christmas, they have only tasted victory once and are their dire run of form sees them at the bottom of the table if you're going off results after the festive celebration.
