Who Will Be In The Premier League Top Four By Christmas Day


The Christmas period is just around the corner and the Premier League fixtures come thick and fast. Looking at the table on Christmas Day is often a good indication of who will finish in the top spots of the League by the end of the season in May.

In the last 11 seasons, eight times whoever has been top on December 25th has won the Premier League. The only three times it hasn’t happened have been when Liverpool FC have been on top. Looking at the table last season on Christmas Day, whoever was in the top four finished there at the end of the season too.

At the moment, Liverpool, Leicester, Man City and Chelsea are occupying the top four spots. With only five game weeks to go it would take a fairly big slip from these four clubs to not still be there come Christmas Day.

Liverpool FC

Klopp’s side are top of the league and flying. They are 18 points clear from dropping out of the top four. With only five games this makes it impossible for them to not be there on Christmas Day. They are in fantastic form and have only dropped two points all season.

Bookmakers Betway have already made the decision to pay out on Liverpool as Premier League winners this season. They have said they can’t see them dropping many more points this season, which of course Manchester City are desperate for them to do. Liverpool Manager Jurgen Klopp will be hoping that his side will still be on top at Christmas while trying to break the trend of not being there come May.

Leicester City

The Foxes are in dreamland at the minute. Second in the Premier League and 10 points clear of fifth place. Manager Brendan Rodgers has his side are playing some fantastic football and look like they can mount a serious title challenge.

With only 15 points available between now and Christmas, for Leicester to drop 10 would be a huge surprise. They face Manchester City on the 21st December which could be their only really tough game. Considering they have only been beaten twice this season you would expect them to be firmly in the top four at Christmas.

Manchester City

At the start of the season you would never have thought that Manchester City would be third in the league at Christmas. Down as the favourites and looking for their third title in a row, this hasn’t been their best start to a season.

That being said they are still nine points clear of Wolverhampton Wanderers in fifth place and have just got back to winning ways against Chelsea. In terms of fixtures though, Manchester City will be tested. Between now and Christmas they have games against Arsenal, Manchester United and Leicester. These are tough games but surely City won’t drop nine point in their next five games?!


New manager Frank Lampard will be delighted with the fact his side are in the top four. They got off to a dreadful start getting beaten 4-0 by Manchester United in the opening weekend but have improved a lot since then.

With six wins in their last seven league games, Lampard seems to have found Chelsea`s best 11. In terms of big games, they face Spurs in a London Derby three days before Christmas. Other than that, their other four games are all fairly winnable. With a seven point cushion we wouldn’t expect the loss to Manchester City to derail them so much that they drop out of the top four.

Wolverhampton Wanderers

In fifth place is the ever so impressive Wolves. They had a brilliant debut season in the Premier League and seemed to have carried that form into this season.

They are currently seven points off of the top four which could be achievable come May but looks a huge task to get done in time for Christmas. They have to play Spurs at home, which the London side won last season. Wolves really need to win their next five to stand a chance and with only four wins to dat this season, this seems too much to ask.

Out of the top four currently and sitting in 8th, 9th and 10th positions are Arsenal, Manchester United and Tottenham Hotspurs. They are between eight and nine points off and don’t look like returning any time soon. Between the three of them they have 12 wins in the league this season, the same amount as first placed Liverpool. They have all shown what they are capable of this season but simply haven’t been consistent enough. Top four could be out of sight by Christmas Day if these three don’t turn their form around soon.
