Premier League 2020 table shows who performed best in the last year

Liverpool’s march to a first top flight title in 30 years was confirmed back in the summer.

Few could argue that over the course of the 2019/20 Premier League season that Jurgen Klopp’s side were head and shoulders above their opponents.

But what if the league was over a calendar year?

Well, no prizes for guessing that Liverpool would again top the table.

Indeed, while the top four are all the same, there are some differences further down, with Leicester down in mid-table and replaced by Southampton – who enjoyed a superb 2020 – in the top five.
