How The Premier League Table Would Look If Games Finished At Half Time

Liverpool may be running away with the Premier League title at present, with Leicester City also leaving champions Manchester City in their dust as things stand, but the entire table could look completely different if games finished at half time. While some people think these kind of stats are pointless, they can be interesting and give an interesting insight into which teams are better or worse either side of the break.

Reds fans will be pleased to see Jürgen Klopp’s men topping the table, but their lead is only three points and the team they are ahead of is a real surprise. Aston Villa’s propensity for conceding late goals has been a real hindrance, and the daft they’re second speaks volumes. Interestingly, Manchester United are ahead of their city rivals, too. Leicester came back from 1-0 down at half time against Everton at the weekend to win 2-1. Jamie Vardy and Kelechi Iheanacho’s goals were hardly atypical for the Foxes, who would be ninth according to this table. If that were the case, it is hard to see Brendan Rodgers being linked so heavily with the Arsenal job.
Another manager who has been linked with the Emirates Stadium hotseat after Unai Emery was sacked last week is Nuno Espírito Santo. But his Wolves side would be much closer to the bottom of the table rather than in the top five, as they had to equalise against Sheffield United at home on Sunday.
Watford would be out of the bottom three, too. If that were really the case then Quique Sanchez Flores May still be in a job. There are a lot of differences that could have happened if this table was genuine.
