Alternative Premier League table after 34 games, based on expected goals

It’s almost done, but it feels like there’s so much unfinished business left to decided in the Premier League.

Massive wins for Liverpool, Manchester City, Tottenham, Manchester United, and Southampton have changed things at both ends of the table.

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp.

Jurgen Klopp’s reds had plenty of pressure on them too having seen Man City beat Crystal Palace just seconds before taking to the pitch at Anfield, where they proceeded to beat foes Chelsea 2-0, thanks to Sadio Mane and a wonder goal from Mohamed Salah.

Spurs put on a show at their new stadium with Lucas Moura netting the first hat-trick the world-class arena as they thrashed Huddersfield 4-0, while Ole Gunnar Solskjaer steered his Red Devils to a 2-1 victory over West Ham, thanks to two Paul Pogba penalties.

Some results were deserved, others less so. But how would the Premier League table look if it was based on results calculated by ‘Expected Goals’?
