Question nobody asked -who leads the 2011 league?

Despite losing their unbeaten record in the new year, Manchester United remain top of the calender year table.

Alex Ferguson's men have picked up 31 points from their 14 games and, until yesterday, Arsenal had a chance of overtaking them, but, after the draw at the Emirates, Arsene Wenger's men have now picked up 27 points from their 13 games as their title challenge has faltered.

That's the same tally as Chelsea and Liverpool -- although Kenny Dalglish's side have played one game more while Everton (25 from 14) are next in line. Manchester City's struggles are underlined by their 11 games this year in which they have managed just 18 points.

At the other end of table, things look grim for Ian Holloway (above) with Saturday's defeat meaning his Blackpool team have managed a paltry eight points from 16 games, which comfortably puts them at the bottom of the 2011 league. Blackburn (10 points from 13 games) and Sunderland (11 from 13) are the next worst off.
