Premier League table: Who has been the best team in 2017?

0 82

Chelsea may be marching to the Premier League title but the
Blues have not separated themselves from the rest of the pack
in 2017 so far.

Antonio Conte’s men lost their first game of the new year to
Tottenham but have gone unbeaten since then to ensure they
remain comfortably in control at the summit of the table.

They have been matched by both Spurs and Everton, however, in
terms of points collected since January 1, with those two teams
currently three points better off than Chelsea but having
played one game more.

Having won five, drawn two and lost one, Manchester City have
also kept up with the Blues by collecting 17 points from eight
matches for an identical record.

Here is the Premier League table based only on games played in
2017 in full:

Bournemouth 14 23 -9 6
Sunderland 7 15 -8 5
Middlesbrough 2 8 -6 4

Middlesbrough’s decision to replace Aitor Karanka becomes less
surprising when you consider that they have collected just four
points this year, while Leicester City had picked up just one –
from a 0-0 draw against Boro – under Claudio Ranieri
before Craig Shakespeare took over and recorded back-to-back
wins.

While Chelsea, Spurs and Man City look well placed to secure
Champions League qualification, Arsenal, Manchester United and
Liverpool have taken turns to trip up over the past three
months in the battle for fourth place.

United’s defensive record is certainly improving under Jose
Mourinho and they have conceded just three times this year, but
an overreliance on Zlatan Ibrahimovic has been exposed at the
other end.

preview & schedule for Week 29

Ex-Bayern Munich and Real Madrid assistant Paul Clement,
meanwhile, deserves enormous credit for the job he has done at
Swansea City and could take another big step towards steering
them clear of relegation at Bournemouth this weekend.

Here’s how the full Premier League table looks going into Week
29:
