EPL Form Guide: Who is Where?

The EPL form guide is an official Premier League table that shows how each club in England’s top flight has been doing over the past 6 games. The results may not surprise the fans who follow football regularly, but one thing is true: these guides work. The table clearly reflects how the teams have been rising up the table in recent weeks.

The table has Arsenal right at the Top, with 6 wins in their last 6 (18 points). Newcastle is on the losing end, with just 3 points (1 win) in the same time period. Manchester City sits in 9th, as they’ve surprisingly lost 3 of their last 6- they sit with half the points Arsenal have.

Crystal Palace’s recent tactical executions of oppositions big and small sees them 4th in the form guide. In front of them is Chelsea, as the Blues have been a mainstay in the top end of the EPL. Manchester United is 5 in a row but they did lose their earliest of the 6 games that count. They’ll be looking to go perfect against Manchester City this weekend.

Ki-Sung Yueng has been masterful for Swansea as of late, and his performances have been vital in Swansea’s ascension to 5th in the form guide. Meanwhile, Liverpool were at the top of the form table before consecutive losses to Manchester United and Arsenal, and they now sit in 6th just one point in front of Tottenham Hotspur- Harry Kane’s great performances have them on 3 wins and 2 draws if you discount their dismal loss to Manchester United.

Often underrated as a meter to measure form, the guide really displays the EPL’s sides well over time. The media doesn’t shine their lights on Crystal Palace and Swansea, nor do they pay attention to Manchester City’s dismal defence of their title (of late)… you have to wonder why. Perhaps it tells the tale of relegation best of all. Which teams are in their EPL swansong before they leave for at least another year?
