Performance index rates Spurs as a better club than Arsenal or Liverpool

White Hart Lane 5

Tottenham Hotspur have been ranked as a better team than Arsenal and Liverpool this season.

Tottenham Hotspur have been ranked as the fifth best team in the Premier League by the EA Sports PPI Club Ranking.

The table, which is based on the combined rankings of individual players at each club, puts Spurs ahead of Arsenal and Liverpool but behind both Manchester clubs, Southampton and Chelsea.

Spurs have made a decent start to the season and sit as one of three teams on 11 points with Manchester United and Swansea City. They are currently behind both in terms of goal difference but have matched Chelsea and Manchester City in terms of their defensive record so far this campaign.

Arsenal’s inconsistent start to the season has largely been enabled by the number of draws the side has accumulated with the highest number in the Premier League’s top 12.

Liverpool have climbed the Premier League table to ninth but have been all or nothing this season with three wins, one draw and three defeats.

The ultimate aim for Spurs this season is a top four place and based on this, they are heading in the right direction.
