Premier League "long table": Your side's REAL place in the league

The league table is a list, but the Long Table shows you how close teams are

A successful round of midweek action for Arsenal, who claw back two points on the Manchester clubs after their late win over Leicester on Wednesday night.

Arsene Wenger's side are now five points behind fourth-placed Manchester City with a game in hand over both the Citizens and Manchester United; should they win the two they have over Liverpool, they'll draw level with Jurgen Klopp's side on 66 points.

Elsewhere there are no great shakes as we approach the final stretch: Everton, West Brom and Southampton all resigned themselves to peering in from the outside long ago, and could soon be joined by the clutch of teams in lower mid-table who will feel much more comfortable with one more win.

Leicester are among those sides after their late loss in north London, six points above the drop zone with a game in hand. Burnley are peering nervously over their shoulders a point behind.

For Sunderland, meanwhile, it's a mere matter of time.
