The Premier League table may not lie, but the Premier League long table tells the real truth.

By placing teams on the number of points they have and not by their place in the table, we can see just how close everyone is to one another in the league – and things are hotting up at both ends of the table.

The task is clear for Liverpool: win their final two games of the season and hope that Manchester City don't beat Steven Gerrard's Aston Villa. It's a similar task for Tottenham Hotspur, who need to beat Norwich City and hope archrivals Arsenal slip up to either Everton or Newcastle United.

The bottom is just as interesting. It's going to be one of Everton, Leeds United or Burnley… but we don't know much more than that.

Just two points separate the three teams in the mix for relegation, with the Long Table showing just how tight it is around there. They're some way off Norwich and Watford, too…
