Alternative Premier League, Gameweek 35: Newcastle Continues to Sit On Top of Form Table

alternative route Alternative Premier League, Gameweek 35: Newcastle Continues to Sit On Top of Form Table

Newcastle retained their strangle hold at the top of the form table and moved above Spurs into fourth place as week 35 also saw wins for the bottom teams and a slip-up for Manchester United.

Newcastle’s latest win over Stoke, a 3-0 triumph and 6.51 return, means that they have now more than doubled Tottenham’s points total over the last five weeks. The Toon Army have won 34.45 points in their last five games, easily the best in the league while Spurs, sitting in 13th place, have only managed 16.33.

Tottenham’s latest slip-up against QPR not only means that Chelsea have once again made ground on the boys from White Hart Lane, but the battle at the bottom is still red hot.

Three of the bottom five picked up valuable wins in week 35. Blackburn, Bolton and QPR all put pressure on Wigan and Aston Villa above them and ensured that the battle at the bottom will stay interesting right until the end.

While tight, each team has a cushion on the team below them. Bolton, still with a game in hand of those around them, are 2.89 points ahead of Blackburn, QPR are 4.19 points ahead of Bolton while Wigan are 3.63 points ahead of QPR. Blackburn’s win over Norwich brought to an end a run of five straight defeats and won them a valuable 6.36 points. However this total was beaten by QPR’s 6.64 for their win over Tottenham. But for their win and draw in week 35, Bolton’s return of 10.31 points has see them leapfrog Blackburn into 18th.

Everton’s excellent comeback at Old Trafford has seen the title race get even closer before the Manchester derby next week. At 4-2 up, United were looking at a 6.60 point return and a total of 208.47, 8.30 points ahead of second placed City. But at 4-4, that lead at the top has been slashed to 5.32 points after City picked up 6.55 points for their win at Molineux.

Kudos must also go to West Brom for their win at Anfield. This was the Baggies 13th win of the season, one more then Liverpool, and they now climb in 8th position.

  • Biggest score: West Brom 7.41 points
  • Lowest score: Tottenham 1.19 points
  • Best draw score: Everton 4.06 points
