Spread the love

The 2019/20 Premier League season is almost upon us, and most of the English teams are still on preseason tour while others are done with theirs already.

Today I will be taking you on a general survey on what’s going on with the Premier league teams as per their last seasons standings, transfer news and and some of the outstanding fixtures for the forthcoming season so that you as a fan would be exposed to all that’s is going on in your club.

Meanwhile, 2018/19 season was indeed a great season of experience for some teams who went through some couple of challenges and even ended up in the position we saw them, while some actually had a really amazing experience irrespective of the individual challenges.

Some clubs like Chelsea and Arsenal started the season with new managers who found it had to get their players to mastering their style of management and play. Chelsea hired Sarri from Napoli who at first won some couple of games but at the long run failed to gain fans trust and love due to the fact that players weren’t just able to get used to his kind of play termed as “Sarri-ball”. That being said, he amazingly led the blues back to top 4 and didn’t just stopped there but went on to win the Europa League; his first managerial major achievement as was said.

Though coupled with the fact that Chelsea had a transfer ban for two transfer window, the Italian experienced manager decided to leave the blues when Juventus made the right offer for him.

Arsenal on the other hand had a somewhat difficult but interesting experience as the players were rapidly getting used to their manager although failed to qualify for champions league as well as loose the Europa League trophy to Chelsea in a 4-1 thriller.

But the good news for them is that the manager is still with the boys as well as no transfer ban for them at all.

Liverpool and man city had an incredible season; as the Guardiola side won the Premier league title for the second consecutive year while the amazing Liverpool shocked the whole world when they turn a 0-3 lose against Barca to a 4-3 win in aggregate to break the messi and entire Barcelona team and fan’s heart at Anfield stadium, before going on to beat Tottenham in Champions league finals; thereby lifting the European trophy a record sixth time.

Aside Tottenham who got to that height even with no signings(although we saw the evidence of their non spending in transfer windows on the adorable new home stadium) was the Manchester United side who at a point had a change of manager to their baby-faced coach Solskjaer who impressed during his trial period but failed to continue in that form when officially given the job.

Not  forgetting Wolves, the promoted side who intimidated a lot of teams including the big six with their incredible form and youthful energy.

Without attempting to mention all the teams one after another, i must say they all had an incredible season.

That being said, I want to quickly take you through the the activities of the 2019/20 Premier league teams and I would at the end require you the reader to share your view on how you think or feel this wonderful teams will fare in the forthcoming 2019/20 season.
