Premier League table: Every team compared to last year – Liverpool flying, Man Utd worse?

Premier League teams will take time over the last international break of the calendar year to assess their progress in 2018/19.

Liverpool and Everton have enjoyed terrific improvements since this stage last season, with far more points after 12 games.

There has also been a surprise package setting the league alight so far, though Manchester United‘s forecast looks gloomy after a rollercoaster start to the campaign.

Take a look below to reveal how every Premier League team’s points have changed compared to Gameweek 12 in 2017/18.

Promoted Teams:

Wolves were unlucky not to beat Arsenal in a hard-fought clash at the Emirates.

They have fared well this season, though fellow new boys Cardiff and Fulham are in real danger in the relegation zone.

17. Burnley: -13pts

Sean Dacha’s men have been solid in recent weeks, but they’re a long way off their impressive pace set last season.

16. Huddersfield: -8pts

David Wagner will need to produce a miracle if Huddersfield are to scramble away from the drop-zone.

15. Manchester United: -6pts

United have endured a turbulent start to the season, but they’re not too far away from last season’s total after 12 games.

14. Southampton: -5pts

Mark Hughes will be fearing for his job after a worse start to the season than his predecessor, Mauricio Pellegrino.

13. Newcastle: -5pts

The Magpies are starting to build some form and should catch their total from last season if they keep it up.

12. Brighton: -2pts

Chris Hughton has worked wonders at the Amex, and the minor points difference won’t be troubling him.

11. Arsenal: +2pts

Unai Emery has steadied the ship at Arsenal and already managed to make progress.

10. Watford: +2pts

Javi Gracia’s side have been inconsistent after a terrific start.

9. Manchester City: +2pts

It’s hard to improve when you’re nearly perfect to begin with. Somehow City have done exactly that.

8. West Ham: +3pts

The Hammers are making gradual progress after a big summer spend and a huge injury list.

7. Crystal Palace: +3pts

Roy Hodgson is keeping Palace competitive despite failing to make significant investments.

6. Chelsea: +3pts

The Blues have Eden Hazard to thank for their blistering start to the campaign.

5. Leicester: +4pts

Claude Puel’s job is frequently under scrutiny, but he’s getting a tune from his squad.

4. Tottenham: +4pts

Stadium woes aside, Spurs are enjoying a very good season in the Premier League.

3. Everton: +7pts

The Marco Silva-Richarlison combination is working once again. The Toffees are on the up.

2. Bournemouth: +7pts

Eddie Howe is the closest thing to a bulletproof manager in the top flight. He has the Cherries sitting in the top six.

1. Liverpool: +8pts

The Reds are keeping pace with City after looking much more solid in 2018/19, even if the front three haven’t hit the same heights.
