Which teams lost the Premier League despite winning more points than Leicester? Arsenal, Liverpool and Manchester United feature

18 Mar

Leicester are on course to win the Premier League trophy, but it looks as if they will do so with a low points total.


Whilst they can still finish on 87 points, an average total for a title winning side, that would require the Foxes to win all their remaining games.

If they retain their current points per game total for the rest of the season, they will pick up another 17 points, ending with 80.

Manchester United were the last team to finish on 80, in their 2010/11 triumph, and before that the Red Devils completed the same feat in the 2000/01 campaign. It was also United who won the title with the lowest ever points total, having secured the 1996/97 trophy with just 75 points.

Leicester could win the league with a points tally lower than some runners-up, and even some third placed teams.

In the 2011/12 season, United ended the campaign with 89 points, but they lost out on the title to rivals Manchester City due to goal difference. This is currently the highest total to not win the league, and Leicester cannot reach that figure even if they win all their games.

Click the arrow above to find out which other teams missed out on the league, despite winning more points that Leicester’s expected total.
