We rank the Barclays Premier League teams based on their level of impending crisis. We're only one week into the new season but already some teams are in serious trouble, while things couldn't be better for others. Expect the Premier League crisis table to change drastically as we move closer to the end of the transfer window.


Manchester United and Crystal Palace's impending crisis level is "Just kicked Bishop Brennan up the arse", in other words, they are absolutely fucked. United lost to Swansea in their opening game of the season and they seriously need to sign players. A few big signings could see them slide down the table but at the moment it's looking bleak. Palace lost Tony Pulis and then lost to Arsenal despite playing well. They too need to reinforce their squad, and if they can't bring some key names in they will be in trouble.

At the opposite end of the table, Swansea's win at Old Trafford, Liverpool overcoming their feeder club Southampton, Arsenal's late winner, City winning away at Newcastle, and Chelsea's new signings starring in a win at Burnley mean that everything is peachy for these clubs.

The clubs in the middle of the table could go either way by next week, be sure to check back to see who is on the verge of meltdown and who is cruising.
