Tottenham overtook Arsenal
Surprisingly, when Jose Mourinho took over Tottenham, this team was only 14th on the rankings. But in the end, the Portuguese strategist brought Spurs to sixth place. Many joked that Jose Mourinho’s standards fell drastically but the Portuguese coach still brought his club to a Europa League position.
With 59 points, this is Tottenham’s worst season in 11 years (since 2008-2009). But the interesting thing is that although it is very bad, Tottenham still ranks above Arsenal, the team only finishes in 8th place on the rankings. This is not an achievement to be expected, but it also does not drop down compared to the opponent.
Alisson created a level with Sterling
Liverpool spectacularly won the Premier League title with 18 points more than the team chasing Man City. The goalkeeper’s job is to keep a clean sheet and Alisson has done well in his journey to bring Liverpool to the championship. Not only that, Alisson also made an impression when contributing a tectonic line.
The situation happened in Liverpool vs Manchester United at Anfield in January. When the score was 1-0 in favor of Liverpool, Alisson launched a kick from home for Mohamed Salah to face David de Gea, before setting a 2-0 victory in front of The Klop.
Interestingly enough, Alisson’s assists are equal to Raheem Sterling, the Manchester City striker. Sterling has scored 20 goals but is not as good at assisting (1 time) as teammate De Bruyne (20 times).This is also something that many people feel surprised for Alison because everyone thinks this player’s abilities are limited.
MU is not better
Manchester United had a strong acceleration at the end of the season to finish third. However, they ended up winning only 66 points, equal to the number of points in the previous season. Even if compared to last season, the number of goals scored by United was even less, despite the praise for the trio of Mason Greenwood, Marcus Rashford and Anthony Martial. This statistic shows that Solskjaer teachers and students need to improve a lot of problems if they want to compete for the championship next season. People often think that after the defeat of last season, this season, MU will change, bring many surprises, can win a place in the rankings, but what this team shows really has disappointed the fans.
Vardy is the oldest top scorer
Jamie Vardy has a life story like a movie. Working as a factory worker at the age of 24, he shone when he won the Premier League title with Leicester City in the 2015-2016 season.
In the 2019-2020 season, Vardy continues to make a mark with the title of top scorer thanks to 23 goals. Interestingly enough, Vardy won the award at 33 years of 198 days. He overcame Didier Drogba, becoming the oldest player to receive this prestigious award in the Premier League. And of course no player can surpass him, even with age to level.
Big change after the 0-9 loss
In October 2019, Leicester City suddenly destroyed Southampton with a score of 9 – 0 at St Mary. It was a strange game because almost all the opportunities created by The Foxes were converted into goals. But after that, Southampton rose strongly. They won a total of 44 points, more than Leicester (42) for the remainder of the season. The decline in the second phase of the season caused Rodgers and his teachers to lose their Champions League place. This is also a sad thing for this team.
The football team of “foreigners”
Wolves had an impressive season with 59 points, ranked 7th on the rankings, behind only Tottenham due to loss of difference. During the entire season, coach Nuno Espirito Santo’s side scored 51 goals. The strange thing is that all of the Wolves’ goals scored belonged to foreign players. A total of 12 Wolves players have scored, but none of them are British nationals.
Ancelotti’s first time
Carlo Ancelotti has led many big clubs and achieved a lot of success, from AC Milan to Chelsea, Napoli, PSG, Real Madrid and Bayern Munich. In a 25-year career, Carlo Ancelotti has never let his team finish the season in the second half of the rankings until now. Last season, Everton ranked only 12th, 5 points behind the Top 10.
Firmino is less charming in Anfield
Roberto Firmino is a very important factor to help Liverpool end 30 years of not being able to win the English championship. The Brazilian star has contributed a total of 9 goals and 8 assists. However, out of Firmino’s 9 goals, only 1 was made at Anfield.
Shine last minute
Manchester United won the Champions League place by beating Leicester City 2-0 in the last match of the season. The table that fixed the score was scored in the final seconds of injury time, by an unexpected factor, Jesse Lingard. Remember, throughout the season, Lingard was one of MU’s most disappointing players. Until the last round, the midfielder still could not score 1 goal and did not have 1 assist.
Another surprising point that cannot be ignored is that in the 2014-2015 season, Bournemouth won a ticket to play in the Premier League for the first time in history. With them at that time were Watford and Norwich. Interestingly, this season, all 3 teams above are together back to the English first division.
Above is the latest information on the English Premier League that brings many surprises to football fans this season. Hopefully the information shared above will help you have more understanding of the Premier League.
