We all know that Arsenal have the easier of the remaining fixtures, with United, Chelsea and Arsenal all extremely close together at the top of the table.

These stats show the difference in fixtures between the remaining teams, not looking at the league position of the opponents, rather their position in the home and away leagues.

For example, whilst only one team has fewer points than Hull this season, they have a home record which is better than five teams. So when Arsenal play Hull away, they are playing against a team who are ranked 15th in the home league, which gives a more accurate picture than saying Arsenal are playing the team ranked 19th in the league. You get the picture.

Birmingham A (11th)
Wolves H (14th)

Not a lot in it. Who wins the league will come down to who has the bottle.
