Premier League Table 2016/17: Week 23 EPL Results, Updated Standings, Top Scorers & Assists

Chelsea continued their title charge with a 1-1 draw at Anfield this week, and are the undisputed betting favourites for the Premier League title with Bet Fred and all other bookmakers.

The Blues are currently nine points clear at the top of the table and could have been further ahead if Diego Costa had not missed his penalty against Liverpool. The Blues went 1-0 up thanks to a fantastic free kick from David Luiz. Georjinio Wijnaldum scored in the second half to earn a point for the home side.

Meanwhile, Arsenal crashed to a 2-1 defeat against Watford and the Gunners will be disappointed after failing to take advantage of their title rivals dropping points this week.

The visitors went 2-0 up within 13 minutes after goals from Kaboul and Deeney. Iwobi’s strike on the hour mark failed to inspire a comeback for the home side.

Watford

Tottenham were held to a 0-0 draw at the Stadium of light. Sunderland came close to winning the game but Borini missed their best chance when he hit straight at Michel Vorm.

Spurs

Manchester United struggled to break down an organised Hull City side at Old Trafford last night.

Eldin Jakupovic was the hero for Hull City as they held Manchester United to a 0-0 draw. Jose Mourinho’s side are currently sixth in the Premier League table.
