The past decade has seen its fair share of magic as far as the football world is concerned and many Premier League fans will agree it has been all worth the watch.

Notably, the Premier League has experienced quite a shift in power in recent years, with the most sensational fall coming in the form of Manchester United.

Sure, United won the 2012/2013 title in what was Sir Alex Ferguson’s last year in charge, but since then the club has been struggling with identity and ambition.

Other clubs like Chelsea who have a revolving door policy on managers have managed to maintain their competitive edge which was jump-started when Jose Mourinho first took over in 2004.

In the last 10 years, Chelsea have won the title twice under different managers – Jose Mourinho in 2015 and Antonio Conte two years later.

So how does the Premier League table look if you combine points accrued in the past decade? The results are quite interesting.

Because Manchester City have won most titles in that period, they inevitably take top spot having won a staggering 251 games between January 1, 2010, and December 31, 2019.

Their latest victory came at the hands of newly-promoted Sheffield United, albeit in controversial fashion.

Second on the decade-old table is Manchester United, who, despite their woes in recent seasons, still had a fairly commendable decade in terms of wins and points accrued.

The Red Devils won 220 Premier League games in the last 10 years, accumulating 747 points in the process which is 71 less than Man City’s 818.

Chelsea, Liverpool, Tottenham and Arsenal complete the top six respectively.

Unfortunately, there are no rewards for decade-old Premier League tables but Manchester United could derive some inspiration from the fact that they are still associated with the big dogs when it comes to Premier League status.

The Blues ran off with a 2-1 victory over Arsenal having trailed for the most part of the match before the Brazilian-Italian midfielder leveled up for the visitors.
