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

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

We are part of The Trust Project What is it?

So now it's getting interesting at the bottom of the Premier League. 

West Brom have decided to play when it's too late, picking up eight points from the last 12 available after Saturday's win at Newcastle, but the Baggies are still five points from safety with only two games remaining. Stoke look only a little less doomed – despite a valiant point against Liverpool, defeat against Crystal Palace on Saturday would leave Swansea requiring only a point from three matches to mathematically relegate them. 

Southampton, though, have the scent of blood in their nostrils. Each of the bottom three have reeled the teams above them closer – as the Long Table shows – but only the Saints will truly feel confident of avoiding the drop after their win over Bournemouth. Swansea, Huddersfield and West Ham are only two points ahead, and the Terriers have Manchester City (a), Chelsea (a) and Arsenal (h) to come in their last three matches. 

Elsewhere, Burnley have effectively secured European football for next season; Crystal Palace are safe after their smashing 5-0 win over Leicester; while Chelsea are keeping the pressure on Tottenham and Liverpool for a top-four finish.
