The 2020-2021 season will be remembered all over the world due to the fact that there were lots of restrictions as a result of the rise of the Corona Virus which not only affected the players but the whole football fraternity.
This resulted in a lack of enough motivation for the players as almost 3/8 of the matches were played on empty stadiums. For instance, for many decades, Stamford Bridge has never been empty since it was built.
But despite the challenges, the season was, however, successful as it ended within the stipulated time and that the virus was well handled when need be.
All the 20 teams participated in the league comprising of Arsenal, Leeds, West Brom, Westham, Wolves, Fulham, Tottenham, Chelsea, Leicester City, Everton, Burnley, Crystal Palace, Aston Villa, Liverpool, Manchester United, Newcastle, Brighton, Sheffield United, Southampton, and Manchester City.
Manchester City was crowned champions with 86 points followed by their rivals Manchester United with 74 points.
Chelsea, Manchester United, Liverpool and Manchester city all booked a slot for the next season champions league whereas Leicester and Westham will be participating in the Europa League while Tottenham Hotspurs will play in the newly formed tournament that is the European Conference League
Sheffield United, West Brom, and Fulham were relegated into Division 1 and this enabled Norwich City, Watford, and Brentford to be promoted into the premier league for the season 2021-2022.
