It’s the most anticipated game day on Saturday, with everyone’s eyes glued to their TV screens it’s definitely going to be a great start to this fantastic weekend! The 2019-20 English Premier League season begins on 10th August, which means it's time to look forward to the top teams and their battles this season! Let’s go!
The two-time reigning champions of the English Premier League. Manchester City is the team to beat once more this season, not just this, Man City also set the record for most (100) and second-most (98) points scored in a campaign over the last two seasons. The Sky Blues have also recently added a power-packed midfielder, Rodri to the team. Let’s see if City will win their 3rd consecutive title!
Liverpool claimed the second position in the English Premier League last year with the longest unbeaten run. Although Liverpool hasn't been crowned in English soccer since 1990, there are chances for them to strike better this season. Liverpool held a 7 point lead over Man City, but unfortunately finished as runners-up with 97 points, the third-highest total in the history of the Premier League and losing only one league match all season, and looks like the only club that might have what it takes to overcome Man City.
Claiming the fourth position in the last season, even as the team’s move to the stadium kept on getting delayed, the Spurs are a force to be reckoned with. Let’s hope that they don’t have those distractions this year, as they are surely getting to the level of Man City and Liverpool now!
After being a total mess in the last season, Manchester United accumulated just 19 points from 17 games. Ole Gunnar Solskjær, who was appointed as Manchester United’s manger, has done a brilliant job by adding solid players like Daniel James, right-back Aaron Wan-Bissaka and, most recently, central defender Harry Maguire! So, if everything falls back into place, the Red Devils can move back to the top four this season.
Before Maurizio Sarri’s exit from the team, he led the Blues to third position. Replaced by Chelsea legend, Frank Lampard, who led Derby to a spot in the Championship promotion play-offs, Chelsea are looking to bounce back inspite of a transfer ban imposed by FIFA. The spirit around Stamford Bridge is at a high point, even after the sale of star man Eden Hazard to Real Madrid!
There’s no denying to the fact that the Gunners are not among the stronger Premier League sides. Arsenal has bolstered their ranks with midfielder Dani Ceballos and winger Nicolas Pépé. They have also strengthened the areas like defense where they were lacking massively last season with the arrivals of David Luiz and Kieran Tierney.
