In the Premier League this season, Man City are running away with it. With the only points dropped a draw against Everton and a loss to Liverpool. Looking back to last season though, things were quite different. City had already been beaten five times and were sitting in second spot, 8 points behind eventual champions Chelsea.
As the January transfer window comes to a close, Man City are still sitting pretty in the Premier League – performing significantly better than last year. When comparing to this time last season though, the biggest improvement table-wise has been made by Leicester. In eighth on 34 points, they are a whole 9 places better off than in 2016/17. Defending champions Chelsea’s underwhelming season is also underlined as they occupy the fourth spot, battling it out for a Champions League place.
