The Premier League 2020-2021 season has been one of the best and most entertaining editions of the competition for EPL fans worldwide. We saw some outrageous goals, remember Cavani? Or Salah? And we saw some of the best matches; Leicester thrashing Man City and Chelsea defeating Man City twice in the league was just a highlight. To top it off, fans got an all-English Champions League final.The league was carved from the traditional Football League in 1992, which created a top-flight platform for the best clubs. Since 1992, we have seen various EPL winners like Blackburn Rovers, Manchester United, Arsenal, Chelsea, Manchester City, Liverpool, Leicester City.
How big will the Premier League 2021-2022 season be? Who will emerge to be the top scorer, and which club will lift the cup after 38 games? Our questions demand a detailed analysis.
EPL Season 2020-2021: What Happened Last Season?
Did you know that until November 2020, the top of the table was shared by six different teams? Yes, Tottenham was the sixth team to have occupied the first position in November.The titleholders, Liverpool, were comfortably seated at the top in early January. However, a series of defeats in 2021 pushed them to 8th in March.
Chelsea and Tottenham endured a series of defeats following January 2021, leading to both the club’s managers being sacked. On the other hand, Arsenal, who were 15th earlier in 2020, managed to gain some points and finished 8th.Man City picked form in late March and went on a 15-game unbeaten run, comfortably finishing at the top of the table and winning the league.
This means that Arsenal won’t play in Europe, a first since the 1994-1995 seasons. A big surprise was West Ham United finishing 6th; they will play in the Europa League along with Leicester City.
