Liverpool are going well in the 2020s table...

The Premier League table of the 2020s: Man City flying, Liverpool above Arsenal…

We’ve gone back to the start of the decade and have worked out what the Premier League table of the 2020s looks like. 

It won’t come as much surprise to learn that Manchester City have accumulated the most points since the start of the decade. In total, they have collected a whopping 354 points since January 2020.

To put those numbers into context, Pep Guardiola’s side have been averaging 2.3 points per game during the 2020s which is a sublime return. It’s no wonder they’ve won five of the last six league titles.

Liverpool claim second spot in this ranking with 323 points collected during the 2020s so far. They’ve got every chance of winning the league this season as Jurgen Klopp’s side currently boast a five-point lead at the top of the table.

With Klopp set to leave Liverpool at the end of the campaign, you’d imagine his side will be more fired up than ever in order to give the German boss a fitting send-off.

Arsenal have made huge strides forward in the 2020s and they sit third in this table with 292 points to their name. That’s an average of 1.9 points per game which is decent going.

Manchester United make up the rest of the top four with 277 points accumulated since January 2020. It’s fair to say that the Red Devils have had a few ups and downs already during this decade.

United started the 2020s with Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, had a short pitstop with Ralf Rangnick and have been managed by Erik ten Hag since the beginning of last season.

In total, the Red Devils have picked up 77 fewer points than their Manchester rivals since the start of the decade. That really puts into perspective the work that still needs to be done at the club.

Tottenham and Chelsea both miss out on the top four of this table as they have each experienced a dip in results during the 2020s.

Spurs seem to be heading in the right direction once again under Ange Postecoglou after they experienced a few false dawns with their previous bosses.

Chelsea have endured the largest dip of all when compared to the previous decade, though, having averaged just 1.6 points per game in the 2020s. It’s fair to say that they are still finding their feet in the post-Roman Abramovich era.

Aston Villa, West Ham, Newcastle and Brighton are the best of the rest as they have all accumulated over 200 points during the decade so far.

Of the 13 Premier League sides who have been in the Premier League since 2020, Crystal Palace have picked up the fewest points with just 177.
