Premier League table: Liverpool maintain top spot with 11 points over Man City

Premier League table looks pretty much unchanged after match-day 18 fixtures with Liverpool, Leicester City, and Manchester City retaining the top three spots.

Although, the Reds had their clash with West Ham United postponed due to their FIFA Club World Cup engagement in Qatar over the weekend.

However, the Merseyside outfits are ten points better than the Foxes, who failed to reduce the gap between them following their 3-1 defeat to the Citizens at the Etihad Stadium.

Chelsea continued to push for a top-four finish at the end of the season following their 2-0 win over Tottenham Hotspur after their visit to the north London side.

Two goals from Brazilian superstar Willian were all the Blues needed to hand their former boss Jose Mourinho another defeat to ex-club after 2-1 loss to Manchester United earlier this month.

The west London club completed the top four teams on the table with 32 points from 18 matches - although, Frank Lampard's armies were sloppy in their last six games.

They have just two wins in their last six Premier League outings - and they are six points behind the third-place team, Man City.

If the 2019-20 season ends now, newly promoted side Sheffield United would have qualified for the Europa League as they currently rank fifth on the table.

The Blades have been too sharp lately winning their last three English topflight games - thereby displacing Wolverhampton Wanderers to keep the position.

Tottenham Hotspur are seventh, Man United are eighth and Arsenal who drew with Everton over the weekend are eleventh on the log.
