Premier League table: Every team compared to last year – Man Utd PLUNGE, Liverpool flying

5. Leicester: +4pts

Claude Puel’s job is frequently under scrutiny, but his squad are working for him and picking up the points.

4. Bournemouth: +6pts

Eddie Howe is the closest thing to a bulletproof manager in the top flight. The Cherries were narrowly beaten by Arsenal but they’re still sitting pretty.

3. Tottenham: +6pts

Spurs are enjoying a terrific Premier League campaign so far, just a few points behind Liverpool and Manchester City.

2. Everton: +10pts

The Toffees are on the up with their attacking talents purring and defensive stars holding firm.

1. Liverpool: +10pts

The Reds may not have looked as explosive as last season, but they’re far more efficient, cutting out silly errors and professionally controlling games.
