Month of November Premier League form tables

The Barclay's Premier league season is certainly a marathon and not a sprint. Teams inevitably experience both rises and dips in form as the season progresses. Avoiding prolonged spells of poor form obviously define a team's season whether they're competing for a Champions League position or to avoid relegation.

The last month of the season has seen changes in fortune for a number of the league's 20 teams. Notably, Chelsea and Arsenal both went through difficult Novembers while the likes of Manchester United, Stoke City, Norwich and Swansea all performed well. The table below looks at the form of teams since the beginning of November, a time period in which each team has played 6 league games. It ranks clubs by the number of points they've accumulated during this time.

Manchester United are currently the league's in form team having accumulated 15 points out of 18 possible. More surprisingly, Stoke City have been the league's second best team over the last 6 games- they've collected 13 points, a run of form that has seen them jump four places from 13th to 9th in the league. By contrast, November was an unkind month for West London clubs. After an excellent start to the season, Chelsea have picked up just 4 points since the end of October, placing them in a three way tie with Sunderland and Newcastle for the third worst record during this time. Their neighbors QPR and Fulham take up the bottom of the table with just 3 points during this time while Fulham have dropped six places in the league table.

This table ranks the 20 Premier League teams by points accumulated over the last 6 games- a span of time which dates back to the first November fixture for each team.
