Premier League top 8: Head-to-head (1)

If this season has taught us anything, it's that 2014 stands to be the most tightly-contested Premier League title race in recent history, with just two points currently separating the top three teams, and six points between the next five sides currently jostling for that all-important fourth spot.

With that in mind, the head-to-head records of each club against their closest rivals, could prove decisive in the chase for the domestic trophy, and prove to be the difference between a season of celebration or regret for those with Champions League aspirations.

Following their 2-1 defeat against Tottenham at Old Trafford on New Year's Day, the eight-team mini table makes for poor reading if you're a Manchester United fan, with David Moyes's side having taken the fewest points from all teams above them in the Premier League.

It doesn't bode well for the reigning champions, who have endured a difficult start to life after Sir Alex Ferguson, with serious questions now being asked about their chances of qualifying for Europe's elite club competition next season.

No team has won the English title after losing six of their opening 20 games since Ipswich in 1961/62, and with four home defeats already in 2013/14, the United fortress already appears to be a thing of the past.

Over the years, the Red Devils have prided themselves on an impressive head-to-head record - both home and away - against their main title rivals, with points proving even more valuable in the top-of-the-table clashes.

However, this year it looks like being a very different story, with Manchester United currently the lowest ranked team in the top eight.
