Premier League standings after weekend action

The English Premier League entered match week 31 over the weekend with surprising results. 

League leaders Manchester City hosted Liverpool in the biggest clash of the weekend, with both teams sharing the points after a thrilling 90 minutes of action at the Etihad Stadium. 

The battle for survival at the other end of the table also intensified, with key wins to the likes of Leeds United and Everton. 

So, how does the table look like?

Battle for the crown

Liverpool are battling Manchester City for the top honours, with the match at the Etihad on Sunday dubbed the title-decider. 

In the end, the two sides could not be separated, meaning Pep Guardiola’s side are still atop the standings on 74 points, one ahead of Liverpool. 

The Battle for the top-four also took a fresh twist, with West Ham, Manchester United, and Arsenal, who are battling for a European spot, losing. 

United lost 1-0 away at relegation-threatened Everton to dent their hopes of featuring in Europe next season. 

The Gunners, on the other hand, were hoping to bounce back from a 3-0 loss away to Cyrstal Palace last time out but were stunned 2-1 at home to a determined Brighton side. 

Antonio Conte’s Tottenham won their fourth consecutive top-flight match to move above Arsenal and into the top four, even though they have played one more game compared to their London rivals. 

As it stands, Spurs hold the last Champions League spot with 57 points, five off third-placed Chelsea, who bounced back from two consecutive defeats in all competitions to thump Southampton 6-0 on Saturday at the St. Mary’s Stadium. 

West Ham, Man United, and Wolves, who all have a chance, are placed sixth, seventh, and eighth respectively. 

At the other end of the table, Leeds United got a massive result as they saw off Aston Villa 3-0 to boost their survival hopes. 

Frank Lampard’s Toffees put their recent troubles behind them as they stunned Man United at the Goodison Park to also boost their hopes.
