EPL stats: Which teams have lost the most matches in current Premier League season?

The 2022-23 Premier League season is coming to an end, with only one round of games left to be played for most teams. All clubs have more or less an idea about where they would be ending the season. There are still a few places up for grabs but most of the teams are able to understand where they will finish this campaign. A lot of factors play a part in a team’s final position in the table. One of the main ones to look out for is the number of defeats a side has suffered during the course of the season.

In a division as difficult as the Premier League, it becomes extra challenging for a team to do well on a consistent basis. A lot of cash is splashed across the division, as almost all sides are able to build a squad filled with quality and depth. This makes it difficult for a club to beat any side on a given day, be it at the top or bottom half of the table. Some clubs crack the code to do well, while others falter and endure a miserable time. It is those clubs who struggle to match the demands of the league will be analysed in this copy.

Which team has lost the most matches?

The club that has lost the maximum number of matches in the ongoing Premier League season is Southampton. The already-relegated Saints have lost a staggering 25 games already in the current league campaign. It comes as a big shock to not only their supporters but the Premier League fans as a whole. That is because Southampton have done quite well over the years and have always been a tough nut to crack. Even this season, the Saints have enough quality in their ranks. Hence the fact that they have gone down is a major shock to many people.

Second in the list is another struggling Premier League outfit in Leicester City. They are also in serious danger of getting relegated this season. It is just a half dozen years ago, the Foxes had surprised the world to win the league crown. To seem them fall from being the league champions to be on the verge of getting relegated will be difficult to digest. One of the reasons behind their downfall is the number of matches they have lost this season. Leicester have already lost 22 times in the league this campaign.

Chelsea have a place in the list too

This table is largely filled with teams placed in and around the bottom three places of the Premier League. One of the surprising names that catches everyone’s eyes is struggling former champion Chelsea. The Blues are enduring a forgettable campaign and look destined to finish in the bottom half of the table. They have already lost a staggering 15 times in the league this season.
