Premier League "long table": Your side's TRUE place in the league
With the 2017/18 Premier League drawing to a conclusion, the Long Table is changing fast – and there's still plenty to play for despite Manchester City's dominance at the top (just look at that gap, for crying out loud).
Pep's mob may soon be about to wrap up the title, but there's still plenty up for grabs: namely who'll secure Champions and Europa League football... and those going down to the Championship. OK, mostly up for grabs: West Brom, after their seventh consecutive Premier League defeat on Saturday, are now 10 points from safety having played a game more than West Ham in 17th. It's a Pard knock life.
The Long Table illuminates Chelsea's plight in fifth; unlikely to be overtaken by a Europa League-chasing Arsenal, but looking doomed to leapfrog Spurs into fourth any time soon. The battle for Europa League football is rather more interesting (before teams decide they can't be bothered once they get there), with Burnley, Leicester and Everton all closely matched after the Toffees' weekend win at Stoke.
That result was grim for a Potters side slumped in 19th but with much brighter survival prospects than the aforementioned Baggies. A clump of seven teams are separated by only five points, although four of those – Newcastle, Swansea, West Ham and Southampton – now have games in hand to edge closer to that Promised Land of... er, lower-mid-table. The glory!
