Liverpool the most unluckiest Premier League side last season

Sadio Mane

Research conducted by ESPN in partnership with Intel and the University of Bath has discovered that Liverpool were the most unluckiest side in the Premier League last season.

A revised Premier League table has been published after correcting 57 incidents throughout the 2017-18 campaign which included incorrectly disallowed goals, dodgy penalties and wrongly issued red cards.

Liverpool gained an additional 12 points as a result of the research while Premier League champions Manchester City were stripped of 3 points. United had 6 points deducted.

City remained as Champions, of course, while Liverpool jumped from 4th to runners-up. United were bumped from 2nd to 4th.

Leicester City were the luckiest team in the division having gained 7 points from errors that went in their favour.
