The busy and snowy Premier League Christmas program is on this week. The Champions Manchester City made no mistake on Tuesday with a 2-1 away win against Watford. It is now upon Liverpool to respond once again with a positive result against struggling Burnley side tonight. Manchester United will welcome Arsenal at Old Trafford, Chelsea will travel to face Wolves and Spurs will seek to continue their great scoring record against Southampton at Wembley. Today, we want to look at five teams with most crosses in the league so far.

Manchester City crosses seem to be inch perfect every time they come because they are scoring so many goals at the moment. The defending champions extended their unbeaten run to 15 with a 2-1 win on Tuesday against Watford. They have so far completed 284 crosses in the League alone. Pep Guardiola will be impressed when he sees the goal difference of +38. City is now five points clear at the top with 41 points having played a game extra.
4. Leicester City- 298 Crosses

Leicester City has recovered well from the terrible helicopter disaster that caught the football World by surprise. The tragedy killed five people including the owner of the club.
On the pitch, Claude Puel boys are doing well so far. The Foxes will face a resurgent Fulham side coached by their former boss Claudio Ranieri. He helped them win the Premier League in 2015/16 season. He might be too clever for them this evening unless they add more crosses to create goals from the current 298 completed.
3. Man United- 301 Crosses
— Manchester United (@ManUtd) December 5, 2018
Jose Mourinho final nail on the coffin might be applied by Arsenal if Manchester United fails to beat them at Old Trafford tonight. The Red Devils are languishing in 8th place on the table with 22 points, 19 behind leaders Manchester City who played on Tuesday and 8 behind the Gunners who are fourth.
The team has been relying on crosses due to lack of creativity through the middle to open up opponents. This season so far they have completed 301 crosses. It is clear Romelu Lukaku, Anthony Martial and Marcus Rashford are not doing enough to convert them to goals. The goal difference remains at -1.
