The latest, Premier League 20 CEO Gordon Taylor has come up with another option, which is to shorten the playing time of each half in matches. “We have to wait, not knowing what the future will be like, now what we can do is to come up with ideas.

The top spot still belongs to Liverpool on both rankings. In the ranking of 60 minutes / game, The Kop is 15 points higher than Man City after 29 games, with 67 points in hand (15 points less than the actual rankings). This is because they lost up to 4 matches and had the same number of draws. In the rankings 75 minutes / game, they are 16 points more than Man City – with a total of 72 points in hand (10 points less than the actual). The Kop in this ranking lost 3 and drew 3.

The race to the Top 4 in the rankings 60 minutes/match proved attractive when MU is the most beneficial team. Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s team – currently ranked 5th with 45 points – will jump to 4th with 46 points. This is because Leicester City fell from 3rd to 5th because it was down 9 points compared to the actual. 6th place team Sheffield United has a great opportunity to replace MU when there is still 1 match and only 2 points behind.

The fact that Arsenal are only equal in points with West Ham in the middle of this table is not surprising by the position of Wolves. Nuno Santo’s team are in fact hunting for a place in the Champions League, finishing sixth with 43 points. But in this ranking, they are penultimate when they are down 17 points compared to reality, just over Norwich City in goal difference.

Newcastle, who are ahead of Wolves and Norwich in the table 60 minutes/game, even stand in the table at 75 minutes/game, with only 26 points after 29 matches – 9 points lower than in reality, with only 5 victories and scored 17 goals. The disadvantage for Newcastle was more clearly visible against Southampton on March 7, when they won 1-0 in reality, but the Allan Saint-Maximin goal was scored in the 79th minute, so no is calculated in the table 75 minutes/match.
