Premier League table: Latest standings as Tottenham, Everton and Man City star | Football | Sport


The Premier League is making a welcomed return this weekend, with five matches taking place on Saturday.

Tottenham travel to Leicester City to start the day’s action in the early kick-off.

Elsewhere, Everton host Sheffield United, and Manchester City face Watford at the Etihad Stadium.

Newcastle United take on Brighton and Hove Albion in the day’s late kick-off, while a whole host of teams are in action on Sunday.

Ahead of the Saturday fixtures, Manchester City lie in second place, five points behind Liverpool.

The Champions know that a win against Watford brings them back into touching distance of the Reds, who take on Chelsea on Sunday.

Tottenham, meanwhile, are two points behind City in fourth-place. They’re level on points with five other teams; Manchester United, Leicester City, Chelsea, Arsenal and West Ham United.

The Foxes will need to beat Tottenham if they’re to leapfrog Spurs in the table by the end of the day.

Everton currently have seven points, and sit in 10th place in the Premier League table.

A win against Sheffield United at home could see them move up to second, if other results go their way.

Slightly further down the table, and Norwich City are one point ahead of the today’s opponents Burnley.

The Canaries have six points from their opening five matches in Premier League life, whereas Sean Dyche’s side have five points. Burnley haven’t won a league match since the opening weekend of the season.

Sheffield United, who are in 15th, are also looking for a win. Chris Wilder’s side have only won one match this season, and have lost two of their last three matches.

They have an identical record to Burnley and Brighton, who make the long trip north to Newcastle.

The Seagulls sit just one point clear of the relegation zone, which houses Newcastle and Watford, who are both in action today.

Watford face a daunting trip to the Etihad Stadium to take on City. The Hornets are currently bottom of the Premier League table, and are yet to taste victory this season.
