Who are the Premier League Champions?

Manchester City are the current Premier League champions and became the first team in ten years to win back to back titles. The title race came down to a dramatic finish with City needing to win on the final day in order to secure the Premier League title again. After going 1:0 down to Brighton on the final day, Manchester City equalised one minute later and went on to win 4-1 at the AMEX Stadium. This win gave them a total of 98 points, only 2 points away from their record 100 points season in 2017/18 and one point above 2nd place Liverpool.

Who are favourites to win the Premier League this season?

After their back-to-back title win and the players they have brought to the club in the transfer window, it is no surprise that Manchester City are favourites to win the Premier League title again this season. Liverpool are second favourites to win it. Liverpool have come a long way under Jürgen Klopp, however, they haven’t strengthened their squad during the transfer window and they will need to keep key players fit if they are to challenge again. Tottenham and Manchester United are third and fourth favourites. Both clubs have spent big in the summer and will be looking to challenge Manchester City.

Which teams are playing in the EPL this season?

The teams that have were promoted to the Premier League are; Sheffield United, Norwich and Villa.

Aston Villa have spent around £145 million on new players this summer after winning the playoff final to reach the EPL. They will be hoping to stay in the league and emulate midlands rivals Wolverhampton who finished 7th last season to qualify for the Europa League.

Norwich who have yo-yoed between the championship and the Premier League for the last ten years will be hopeful of staying up after winning the Championship by five clear points.

It’s been 13 years since Sheffield United have reached the top flight. Although many didn’t expect them to push for promotion last season, they finished 6 clear points above Leeds United.
