As of today and with everyone on twenty two games bar Everton and the Baggies, the goal difference is looking interesting.
The top nine all have positive GD, from 10 (us) down every team is in negative. Last season we had a bad GD after the December from hell when we scored eight and conceded 18, we finished the season 15th, level on points with Southampton and Newcastle and splitting them on goal difference, which for us was -22.
Some teams below us this season have had serious drubbings, we’re on -7, Hull on -6, Baggies on -5 and Swansea on -6. Norwich are on -17, Fulham on -26, West Ham -11, Sunderland -15, Cardiff -21 and Stoke -14.
We haven’t played Manchester City away yet and could well concede a few there but with Vlaar keeping a tight ship at the back and Benteke, Gabby and Andi starting to score at the front hopefully we’ll stay ahead of the drop zone on merit.
But if not and considering how close it is from 10th to 20th with only six points difference, it’s good to know there are teams a lot worse off than us if it does go to GD.
