If the Premier League table was based on aggregate results.
Manchester City secured their fourth Premier League crown in five years with a comeback win over Aston Villa on the final day of the season, but it’s actually Liverpool that would’ve won the title if it was based on aggregate results. (We know it doesn’t, but stick with us).
Pep Guardiola’s men won their sixth Premier League title after finishing one point ahead of rivals Liverpool in the table.
However, for the people that were desperate to see the Reds sitting at the top of the tree at the end of the campaign, we’ve got you covered.
Odds-Comparison.com compiled every result from the 2021/22 season to create an aggregate Premier League table – and Man City, maybe surprisingly, weren’t crowned champions.
But before we reveal which side (it’s Liverpool, btw) would’ve topped the ‘aggregate Premier League table’, let’s show you how the data was collected.
Those at Odds-Comparison.com wanted to create a Premier League table based on aggregate results over the season, so they did exactly that.
They went through every league result across this season to create an aggregate scoreline between each team and compiled all results.
From there, each team’s points were then counted to create a new Premier League table based on aggregate score lines.
As you can see, Jurgen Klopp’s Liverpool would be crowned champions based on aggregate results and would have finished the season unbeaten with 49 points. City’s aggregate defeats to Crystal Palace and Tottenham would have cost them the title.
If you thought Manchester United’s season couldn’t get worse, well, think again. The Red Devils suffered big defeats, including 9-0 to Liverpool and 6-1 to Guardiola’s men.
Southampton would have been relegated alongside Watford and Norwich, with the Saints only managing four aggregate victories all season. Arsenal and Spurs both secured a top four finish.
