The Christmas and New Year period represented a chance for teams at the top and bottom of the Premier League to improve their positions. However, not all sides were able to take advantage.
We’ve taken a look at some of the sides that missed out over the past seven days.
Jose Mourinho’s side played well on Boxing Day to beat West Ham 2-0, but they couldn’t back that up dropping points against Southampton and Tottenham Hotspur, conceding six goals in two games.
Perhaps a little harsh to call United one of the losers considering they didn’t lose a game, but the pack have closed on them in the top four race with Southampton one point behind and Tottenham three adrift.
Three games and three defeats says it all. Roberto Martinez’s team have dropped down to 15th place in the table.
West Bromwich Albion
One point from a possible nine has given new boss Tony Pulis a huge challenge looking ahead to the rest of the Baggies’ New Year fixtures. However, the point away at West Ham put an end to the losing streak.
