There is no denying that soccer has come a long way in America and the Premier League is only heating thing up even more. The Premier League is one of the most exciting times leagues of the year and fans and spectators across the globe are already making predictions as to who is going to bring home the win. Fans have already seen some upsets and ups and down in the league so far, but it has no doubt been exciting so far. So, which teams are going to be on the bottom by Christmas and which teams are going to be standing with their heads held high?
Top Of The Table
It is official that Manchester City will the ones with their heads held high on Christmas Day. Unfortunately, for the Swansea fans they are going to find their team at the bottom of the table, but what does this mean for the end of the season and other league positions. Does it mean that Manchester is going to go on and keep dominating or will the other side rally and make a comeback? Well, one thing is for certain and that is that this latest news is good for Manchester City. In fact, in the last ten seasons, there have only been three teams who have been at the top and went on to finish first. This was Arsenal back in the 2007-2008 season. Liverpool in the 2008-2009 season and they did the same thing once again in the 2013-2014 season.
Whether you are taking advantage of free betting or you are just a die-hard Liverpool fan, you have to feel like your luck has run out. It seems like Liverpool will occupy the last spot in the Champions League at Christmas and they could be in serious trouble. There are three sides above them that could qualify at the end of the season. That being said, it should be noted that in six occasions over the last ten years the teams that sat in fourth on Christmas Day failed to reach the top by the end of the season. With Tottenham and Hotspur and Arsenal breathing down their necks Liverpool should be scared. And, it doesn’t help that they can’t defend a lead. It looks like Manchester City, United and Chelsea are in a good position to get back in the Champions League again next season.
It is never fun to be at the bottom, but this is even more so true when it comes to the Premiership. And, this is because 50 percent of the time the side that has been at the bottom since 2007 got relegated. However, on a high note, Swansea has been in the bottom three at Christmas in two of the last three seasons and managed to claw their way back to the top. So, there might be some hope for them left and if anything is clear a come from behind victory is never out of question. The other two sides making up the bottom might have the worst odds of all, as there has only been one time that the teams in this spot on Christmas weren’t relegated. And, that was during the 2012-2013 season.
