Fans notice Sky Sports post Premier League 'Top 11'

Football fans have noticed that Sky Sports changed their Premier League table graphic, claiming it's in order to make it look like Liverpool are in the top half.

It's fair to say that Liverpool's start to the season is not what most people expected, after Jurgen Klopp's side finished just one point off being champions in the previous campaign.

In recent years they have looked like the only club capable of challenging Manchester City for the title, even winning it in the 2019/20 season.

However, last weekend's controversial loss to Arsenal means they're already 13 points off their rivals, and a further point off the table topping Gunners.

They face City on Sunday, with one pundit predicting a 'walloping' for Erling Haaland and Co, which might as well be their new name.

Ahead of that game they were hit with the blow of falling out of the top half of the table, following Brentford's win over Brighton on Friday night, dropping down to 11th.

However, fans on social media noticed that Sky Sports seemed to have changed their usual graphic from a top half to top 11, in order to fit the Reds in.

"It’s so when they show the bottom half Liverpool fans don’t think there top," one fan joked, as the only way Klopp's side would be top right now.

"Harsh on Everton and West Ham too. Level on points with Liverpool," a second pointed out.

Even an Ipswich fan was getting in on the act, saying, "It’s clearly because Liverpool are 11th, Sky Sports are so biased. Hence why there are 11 teams in top half. I don’t understand why they love that little b***h Klopp for."

Another added, "There’s no way they’ve actually done this to squeeze them in, this is unbelievable."

Fans of other clubs were using the conspiracy that Sky are biased against Liverpool to make up their own scenarios to prove it, which you have to admire.

Things like 'If Chelsea were sixth it'd be a top five,' were being posted by fans of the Blues, and 'we're lucky it's not just 2nd to 11th,' claimed one Arsenal fan, with his team currently sitting atop the pile.

Liverpool fans were amused that their position could still rattle their rivals, one saying, "We may be s**t but we’re still the main characters unfortunately lads."

And another seemed to add some sort of context to the table, which means he had a rational argument to the discourse on Twitter, which can't be right.

This outlier said, "They did this to show how far off the top we are already but you guessed it, Everton somehow managed to find a way to make themselves the victims of it."

Klopp will be hoping his side find a way to beat City on Sunday, and jump back up the league, but pointed out how difficult it is to stop them due to their ability to spend without consequences.
