A look ahead at the 2018/19 Premier League season
We take a look ahead at the 2018/19 Premier League season and see which teams might push Manchester City for the title.
The English Premier League is the most popular domestic football championship in the world. There are 20 teams competing and the EPL is widely considered to be the most competitive league as anyone can beat their opposition on a given day. However, Manchester City was the exception last season as they ran away with the title.
Josep Guardiola’s team began to crush opponents one by one from the very start of the 2017/18 season and by the turn of the year, there was virtually no doubt that the Citizens would win the title. In general, the ‘big 6’ are the only teams capable of winning the major honours:
• Manchester City;
• Manchester United;
Last year, City didn’t give their rivals a chance. According to the final EPL table, Guardiola’s side finished a whopping 19 points clear of their rivals and amassed a total of 100 points. This is a new record of for English Premier League and it will be along time before another team is able to rack-up a century of points in such a competitive league.
However, next season we should see the title being a more closely fought affair. Arsenal have changed their manager with Arsene Wenger replaced by Unai Emery and the Spaniard has been overhauling his squad this summer as he looks to get the Gunners back in the top four. Liverpool ended last season strongly and will be looking to push for the title this year while Man Utd will be determined to close the gap on their City rivals.
It’s never been easier to keep up to date with what’s happening in the Premier League as you can visit the 777score.co.uk website to see the latest scores and standings but teams will be desperate not to see City sitting top next season. Many teams have been working hard in the transfer market to try and catch City as it would be virtually impossible to close the gap without heavy investment.
Chelsea are expected to be active over the coming weeks to strengthen their squad after finishing fifth last season and the Blues have won the title in two out of the last four seasons so can’t rule them out this coming campaign. Especially as they won’t have Champions League football to distract them.
However, the Citizens are not going to part with their title easily and Guardiola is set to bring in at least 2 or 3 top quality additions to further strengthen the defending champions so no doubt City will be heavy favourites next season.
With the new campaign almost upon us, we can look forward to another season of twists and turns, and it’s this roller-coaster ride that makes the Premier League loved around the world.
