Alternative Premier League table after 33 games, based on expected goals

The Premier League fixtures at the weekend may have been decimated by the FA Cup semi-finals but we still saw plenty of action.

Liverpool are back on top of the table, ahead of Manchester City, thanks to a 3-1 comeback win over Southampton, while Arsenal failed to capitalise on Tottenham’s inaction as they lost 1-0 to Everton.

Liverpool players celebrate Mohamed Salah’s goal against Southampton.

Elsewhere, Leicester City kept their European hopes alive with a 4-1 victory over Huddersfield, Crystal Palace grabbed a 1-0 victory over Newcastle United, and Burnley eased relegation fears by beating Bournemouth 3-1.

Fulham and Huddersfield might be relegated but everything is still to play for and it’s setting up for an intense finale.

Most clubs have six matches to go after several games in hand were played this week and we’re still none the wiser about how the final standing will end.

But how would the Premier League table look if it was based on results calculated by ‘Expected Goals’?
