The Premier League Table Since Christmas Makes Very Alarming Reading For Arsenal

The Premier League Table Since Christmas Makes Very Alarming Reading For Arsenal
By Conor Neville

Opta have thrown up the Premier League table as it would look had the League began on the 26th December. The headline takeaway is that Arsenal have mucked up their season more dramatically than many have assumed.

Arsenal find themselves in the bottom of the table in the League since Christmas, behind the likes of Chelsea, Swansea, Stoke, Liverpool and, whisper it, even Manchester United.

Spurs sit on top, two points clear of Leicester City. Southampton, seventh in the table overall, are in third, with West Ham nestling in fifth.

Chelsea's quiet renaissance under Guus Hiddink - a high-powered safe pair of hands - sees them in fifth in this table.

At the bottom end, Crystal Palace's alarming nose-dive in 2016, mostly ignored by the media, has them at 19th since Christmas. Even Aston Villa have one more point than Palace since Christmas.

The bizarre streakiness of Alan Pardew's teams has been observed before. Newcastle's form plummeted in the last few months of the 2013-14 season. As with Palace, had they not built up enough points in the first half of the season, they'd sit in the relegation zone.
