Alternative Premier League table after half a season, based on expected goals

Christmas was merrier for some more than others as the Premier League took more twists and turns.

Liverpool are now six points clear at the top of the table after wins over Wolverhampton Wanderers and Newcastle United, while Manchester City were rocked by defeats to Crystal Palace and Leicester City.

Liverpool players celebrate during their 4-0 win over Newcastle United.

Elsewhere, Tottenham Hotspur hit 11 goals across their 6-2 triumph over Everton and 5-0 win against Bournemouth, while Ole Gunnar Solskjaer won both his first two fixtures as Manchester United boss, beating Cardiff City and Huddersfield.
