QUIZ: Name everyone top & bottom of the PL at Xmas?
QUIZ: Can you name every side to have been top and bottom of the PL at Christmas?
Christmas is always a key period in the football season in England with plenty of points up for grabs due to the busy schedule. In a lot of cases were you are at Christmas can be were you finish up at the end of the season – whether it’s at the top or at the bottom. In nine of the last twelve Premier League seasons the side sitting at the top of the tree on the 25th has gone on to lift the trophy in May and this time round it’s Antonio Conte’s Chelsea who have that honour. The Blues’ fate was sealed before this weekends action and they’ll be hoping their name will return on the trophy for the first time in two seasons.
It also has a similar effect at the bottom of the table which isn’t good news for Hull City! Only three sides in Premier League history have stayed up after being at the foot of the division on Christmas Day – with two of them coming in the last three seasons! But with The Tigers just three points away from safety, they’ll be confident that they can buck that trend and retain their place in the top flight – starting against Manchester City on Boxing Day.
With the action finished for Christmas Day, we’ve put together a quiz that will really test your Premier League knowledge! We want to know if you can name every side to have been at the top and bottom of the league for every season – going back from the inaugural 1992/93 campaign up to the present day. There’s a few names in there which will surprise you and it will take some effort to land 100%! Have a go and tweet in your scores into us @footyaccums!
