Newcastle still top

After last night’s games, Newcastle are still top of the table (average points 3, average goals 3, average difference 2), followed by Everton (3, 2.5, 1.5) and Chelsea (3, 2.5, 1), Arsenal (3, 2, 1), Blackburn (3, 2, 1) and Liverpool (3, 2, 1) taking the remaining European spots. I was wrong in suggesting that Spurs (0, 0.5, -1.5) were bottom of the Premiership under this new sorting algorithm—West Ham (0, 0, -2) prop up the division, with Spurs and Middlesbrough (0, 0.5, -1) joining them in the relegation zone.

The biggest beneficiaries from the revised sorting are Newcastle, jumping four places, while Man. City are crying with a five place demotion from second to seventh.
