There is a remarkable symmetry to Liverpool and Manchester United’s goal records this season in comparison to last term, while Arsenal are second only to the Merseysiders in terms of points gains.

Liverpool have been the biggest Premier League improvers this season, gaining an extra 13 points thanks in no small part to them conceding 17 fewer goals, whereas United have paid the price for a poor first half of the campaign under Jose Mourinho and have conceded 17 more.
