Liverpool have won the Premier League for the first time in 30 years, breaking a 30-year title drought and reclaiming their spot at the top of English football. After Manchester City defeated 2-1 to Chelsea, the Reds have finally made it beyond the final barrier, three decades in the making.
This season was always going to be about regaining possession from City and keeping up with Liverpool, but Arsenal also managed to finish in the top four for the first time since 2005-06, which means there will be some new faces at the top of the table next year. Chelsea, however, could still win the FA Cup if they beat Liverpool in the final.
Manchester United finished seventh this season, which means they'll be playing catch-up in the summer when it comes to trying to regain their place among the top four teams. However, they did manage to secure a spot in next season's Champions League after beating Tottenham Hotspur 3-1 in the last game of the season.
Tottenham finished outside the top four for the first time since 1992-93, so there will be changes at the top of the club too. Harry Kane became the first player to score 20 goals in a single Premier League season as Spurs ended the year with 10 games to go. He broke Alan Shearer's record of 19 goals set in 1995-96.
Yes, Liverpool has successfully defended its Premier League title. In the 2019-20 season, Liverpool won their first Premier League title in in over 30 years, as well as their 19th English top-flight title overall. The previous season, they had finished second behind Manchester City.
This is only the second time that Liverpool has secured the league title before the start of the next season - in 2018. This occurred when Manchester United lost to Tottenham Hotspur in the last game of the 2017-18 season. As a result, Liverpool became champions by default.
Liverpool was founded in 1892, so it's not old. However, the club is quite old compared to most other European teams. Its greatest period of success was between 1992 and 2005, when it won five titles. After that, it failed to win any more championships until this year.
The most successful manager of Liverpool is Sir Alex Ferguson, who managed the club for 27 years from 1986 to 2013. He won 14 trophies during his tenure, including six Premier Leagues (which at the time was called Division Ones), three FA Cups and two Champions Leagues.
Ferguson is also one of only four managers to have won the European Cup/Champions League with every single club he has managed.
Liverpool, unhappy, magnificent pricks that they are, will almost certainly win the title. They might not, though. Jurgen Klopp's side aren't the lock for No.20 that they were for No.19, which might lead to United taking No.21. Here are five of the reasons why the title is making its way back up the M62..
Manchester City are great to watch but they're also incredibly fragile. If they lose a game then it'll be because one of their defensive mistakes or ineffective attacks. Either way, they won't be playing catch-up football anymore; instead, they'll be running away with it.
Chelsea are the most complete team in the league and it shows in how many titles they've won over the years. Although they are lacking in top-class talent, what they do have is enough to more than compensate for this shortcoming. As long as Antonio Conte stays, they'll continue to perform well and win plenty of games.
Tottenham are looking like a real threat this season after some impressive results. With Harry Kane being fit again and Mauricio Pochettino doing such a good job with his squad, there's no reason why they can't challenge at the top end of the table.
Arsenal used to be counted among London's big four clubs but these days they're just another English side fighting for survival. Despite having some very talented players, they often find themselves in need of a miracle to save them from relegation.
Manchester City won their first league title and became the sixth side to take the Premier League trophy in one of the best finishes to a league season ever. City ended tied for first place with Manchester United on 89 points, although their goal difference was eight points higher. Manchester United dominated the season and finished first. However, due to a breach of regulations that occurred during the course of the season, United were denied the right to play-off games against City for the remaining spot in next year's UEFA Champions League group stage.
On 23 April 2017, the Premier League announced that Manchester City had been awarded the title and would be declared champions at the end of the 2016–17 season. They became the first club to win the league by more than one point since Leicester City in 2015.–tweet this
City qualified for the UEFA Champions League via their league position. This is only the second time that Manchester City have earned a place in Europe's top club competition - the other being the 2009–10 season when they also qualified for the UEFA Champions League. Tweet this
