A new semi-regular feature in which we assess the level of crisis enveloping each Premier League club with our 100% scientific crisis rankings.
Get the hell out of the way, international break. We’ve got our Premier League back! Now, who is bricking it the most with the return of club football?
You can’t kill me, I’m a bad bitch.

Yeah, things have only gotten even better since you last spoke to us. Best form in the league and we’re on the way to steal yo’ girl. Now where’s Frank’s knighthood?

18. Sheffield United
Hi, my name is Chris Wilder and I’m here to piss all over your season. Have a nice day!
17. Newcastle United
Steve Bruce for manager of the year. No, wait. Make that man of the year. One defeat in five games, baby!
13. Steve Bruce (Newcastle)
Butcher. Finest lamb chops in all the north east. Good honest labour. Always gives extra to the older ladies. Been known to eat all his stock pic.twitter.com/PpOkPcbIHd

16. Leicester City
Best defence in the league. Second most goals scored. Second in the table. And with Brodge on our side, we are totally ready to scupper Liverpool‘s title charge.

Regressed since last year, blah, blah, tired from the Europa League, blah, blah, blah. We’re seven league games unbeaten, we’ve beaten the champions, and we’ve got the same points we had at the same point last season. So all you doubters can SHUT IT.
Damn, we didn’t just lose to Manchester United. We got hammered. The good news is, there are so many bad teams this year we’re probably going to coast it regardless. Sweet.
They are keeping the ball more, passing more, making more attacking passes and from better areas, and shooting more, all without allowing more shots against.@AFHStewart & @fennertown, on Graham Potter's tactics at Brighton:https://t.co/mtmKtp9Izt#WhiteboardFootball pic.twitter.com/ak9H0Glohs

One win in five and we’re still in the top half? Booyah!

Two weeks ago we were three points above the dropzone. After last week we’re now three points off Arsenal. Progress!
Actually agree! Although, then there's people like Silva literally stealing a living based on nothing more than an ideology rather than actual success as the likes of Howe/Wilder have had.

We’ve had a pretty poor month of it and we’re still only two points off sixth place. Right, time to Burnley the bloody arse off everyone.
Caitlyn Jenner and James Haskell. Fucking hell, rather pair them up at Centre half to keep Chris Wood quiet when you’re holding onto a 1-0 Away at Burnley

10. Aston Villa
Okay, maybe we were a bit hasty saying we’re definitely going to stay up, but look, we’ve got John McGinn and you don’t, so we’re pretty satisfied with ourselves.

9. Man United
Hey, do we kinda, sorta, I don’t know… look solid? Might we finally aspire to not terrible? All we need to do is be better than Arsenal, and I like those odds.

8. Crystal Palace
Look, we’ve had a tough run of fixtures lately, but we’re bound to bounce back again very soon. Who have we got next? Liverpool? Okay, scratch that.
The last time the Palace were in this much trouble, they appointed Roy Hodgson to steady the ship.

We’re not really playing any better after changing managers, but by god it feels great to win a game. Twelfth time lucky.
6. Norwich City
I mean, we didn’t have high expectations heading into the season anyway, so who’s to say we’re really doing all that badly when you think about it? Man, really wished I hadn’t got my hopes up after Man City.

5. Man City
I’m starting to get this bad feeling that we’re not going to win the title this year. How many times in a row have we won it, by the way?

So, are we going to get good soon, or nah? Cool, Championship it is.

3. West Ham
Fackin’ hell. One injury and we’ve turned into an absolutely horseshit team. Who knew Lukasz Fabianski is Lev Yashin reincarnated?

Somehow, Spurs sacked Mauricio Pochettino before we’ve sacked Unai Emery. There is surely some sort of elemental imbalance in the universe at hand here.

We haven’t won a league game in so long, but at least things can’t possibly much worse. Let me just catch up on the latest news real qui— oh, god. Oh no. No, no, no, no, no, no, no. Not this. Anything but this!

Mourinho five minutes later asked if he thinks losing the Champions League final affected the Spurs squad: "I don't know because I never lost a Champions League final"
