Premier League table for 2020 shows who dealt with Covid-19 impact best

Just like in the actual league for the entire year, Liverpool sit at the summit of the Premier League table when taking games solely from 2020 into account.

The Reds waltzed their way to their maiden Prem trophy last season having been in impressive form, particularly during the first half of the campaign.

Then came coronavirus, though the trophy was all but wrapped in red ribbons by then, with no football for three months.

Liverpool earned 2.20 points per Premier League game during 2020, putting them at the top of the calendar table.

They are followed by both Manchester clubs with United’s impressive current season leaving them on 1.97 points per game for the year.

Newly-promoted Leeds United come in fourth having picked up an average of 1.76 points per game in 2020, with Marcelo Bielsa’s side coming up from the Championship.

Had the Premier League season ran from January to December, we would be waving goodbye to Crystal Palace, Brighton and Sheffield United.

The Blades have struggled in the current season and their points per game tally for the past 12 months sits at just 0.79.

It’s not bettered much by Brighton, who are the only other team to average below a point for every 90 minutes of Premier League action.
