Rules for classification: 1) Points; 2) Goal difference; 3) Goals scored; 4) Play-offs (only if needed to decide champion, teams for relegation or teams for UEFA competitions).
(C) Champion; (R) Relegated.
Notes:
  1. The winners of the 2018–19 EFL Cup move to the Europa League second qualifying round. But, since the winners of that tournament (Manchester City) would currently at least qualify for the Champions League based on being in the top 4 of the Premier League, the place given to the EFL Cup winners would pass to the best team that hasn't already qualified for the Champions League or the Europa League (currently the sixth-placed team).
