Frankly f***ed.

See above.

 

18) Watford

Hanging on somehow.

Proudly over-performing. They had literally one shot at Man City.

 

16) Crystal Palace
xPTS: 4.1
Actual points: 3

Poor since the re-start but they should have beaten Burnley.

 

15) Sheffield United
xPTS: 4.44

In amongst the rabble at last.

 

14) West Ham United
xPTS: 4.64
Actual points: 4

Pulling themselves out of the mire.

 

13) Everton
xPTS: 4.83
Actual points: 7

Rotten against Spurs and that might be their true level.

 

12) Southampton
xPTS: 4.96
Actual points: 9

They ‘beat’ Manchester City by 0.63 goals to 3.40.

 

11) Tottenham

Pretty awful but picked up as many points as Liverpool since the restart.

 

10) Brighton

Eased away from trouble.

Barring West Ham, this has been a breeze.

Things are looking up.

 

2) Manchester United
xPTS: 9.66
Actual points: 10
