2nd place - Manchester City - final points tally: 84

Run in: West Brom (Date TBC), Wigan, Tottenham, West Ham, Swansea, Reading, Norwich (19 points)

No surprise who comes home in second place - despite their Manchester derby win last night, the Citizens look to have left it too late to mount a serious defence of their title.

Their remaining fixtures don't look difficult enough to drag them back into the 3rd/4th place scrap either -games against Wigan, West Brom, Reading and Norwich should be comfortably winnable.

Indeed the only game in which they dropped points was against Norwich, and they are surely unlikely to do the same again.
