English Premier League table 2022/23: Updated EPL standings and race for title, Champions League places, and relegation survival – Sporting News

  • September 12, 2022

Who can stop Arsenal? Well, Manchester United, apparently. The Gunners had five straight wins to start the season and sit alone atop the Premier League, but they fell victim to Old Trafford for their first defeat of the season, although Arsenal remain atop the table for now.
Despite that, Arsenal are still guaranteed to be on top at the end of Matchday 6. That’s because the Gunners’ archrivals Tottenham and defending champs Manchester City are one point behind after playing their matches on Saturday (Spurs beat Fulham, and Man City were held at Villa 1-1). Tottenham and City face off next weekend at the Etihad.
Chelsea and Liverpool work towards recovery after their slow start, with the Blues relieved to come away with a 2-1 win over West Ham, and the Reds disappointed to settle for a scoreless draw in the Merseyside derby.
While losses sent Leeds United and Fulham sinking down the table, Brighton and Brentford continue to be early pleasant surprises. Ivan Toney’s hat-trick helped to lift the Bees up to 7th place, while Brighton continue to hold on to 4th spot with a home game against bottom side Leicester on tap for Sunday.
Below is the full Premier League table followed by a snapshot of each race.

Updated as of Sunday, Sept. 4.
Arsenal remain atop the league, but no longer own a perfect record after falling to defeat at Old Trafford, with Marcus Rashford’s brace and Antony’s debut goal enough to hand the Gunners their first loss of the year.
Defending champions Manchester City and Tottenham are one point behind and are set for a tasty showdown coming up next weekend at the Etihad. Manchester United are now in the hunt after the win over Arsenal.

While the usual Big Six names are not a surprise in the top half of the table, you wonder how long some of the new entries can hang around.
A European place would definitely make for a successful season for Brighton as Graham Potter continues to do impressive work on the south coast, while it’d be a dream for Brentford to somehow qualify for European football.
Leicester City were competing for a European spot just a season ago and are now at the bottom of the league, with Aston Villa and Everton among the surprising group of teams who find themselves just above the Foxes in the lower depths of the table.
Wolves projected to be a surefire mid-table side at worst in 2022/23, but their goalscoring issues caught up to them at the start of this season. A narrow 1-0 win over Southampton gave them some breathing room with a match at Liverpool next.
Nowhere to be found in the bottom seven places are Bournemouth, who after sacking their manager Scott Parker on the heels of a 9-0 drubbing at the hands of Liverpool, are in the safety zone thanks to a 3-2 comeback win at Nottingham Forest, who are now second from bottom.
The bottom three teams on May 28, 2023 will be relegated to the second tier Championship.
