Another Premier League season has come and gone and what a campaign it was. We had 38 gameweeks full of drama and suspense that went down to the final day of the campaign, just how the masses like it.

Today, we’re going to take a look at five big takeaways we have as we enter the summer months and begin the countdown to the new season.

City and Liverpool are too good

Manchester City finished on 93 points, Liverpool finished on 92. The next closest side was Chelsea and they were all the way back in third with 74 points, highlighting just how big the gap is between the top two and the rest of the chasing pack. These clubs have won the last five titles between them and, surprisingly enough, we don’t think they’re going to be slowing down anytime soon.

North London still needs work

Tottenham and Arsenal may have been battling it out for a place in the top four, but we’re not so sure either side can be particularly ‘proud’ of what they put forward this season. Sure, European football was secured and that’s always going to be the main priority, but they’ve got holes within their setup that need to be addressed – and that goes for both the white and red half of North London.

Yo-yo troubles continue

Fulham are heading back up with Watford and Norwich City, once again, heading back down. It’s not like the yo-yo nature of the Premier League is going to impact us all too much, but it’s still a bit of a nuisance that really highlights the financial structure of English football and how it needs to change. We need more opportunities as opposed to fewer than ever before for sides to reach the top flight.

Stagnant Midlands?

Wolverhampton Wanderers, Leicester City and Aston Villa all have squads more than capable of having great success in the Premier League, to the point whereby it’d be understandable if any of the three managed to make it into Europe. Instead, they finished 8th, 10th and 14th respectively, which feels a bit stagnant given how much potential they all have.

Best league in the world

From the quality of all 20 clubs to the way in which it all came down to the final day, we think it’s safe to say the Premier League is the greatest league in world football. The title race, top four, sixth place, top half and relegation battle were all decided last weekend alongside the golden boot tussle, and that’s the kind of energy we’re expecting to see carry over beyond the summer.
