Chelsea champions – Arsenal´s worst season in 20 years
Last season Chelsea was the biggest disappointment after winning the league they never managed to recover their form. They ended up as a bottom placed team and sacked their glory winning coach Jose Mourinho. They then appointed the Italian coach Antonie Conte. And he did not wait long before making sure he secured Kante´s services for his new team. The London team started of the season not that great and it seemed like Conte would have trouble during his first season outside of Italy´s borders. But after the game against Arsenal Conte changed his formation to 3-4-3. A formation which helped them all the way to the title.
Liverpool and Manchester City claimed the last Champions League spots in the Premier League. It was between them two and Arsenal. The Gunners have never missed Champions League spot in the last 20 years. But every good thing have to come to an end and unfortunately this season was time for Arsene Wenger´s super record ended. The Frenchmen has been under a lot of pressure and banderols with the hashtag Wengerout has been seen in all of Arsenal´s latest games. Something very sad to see, since the Frenchman has such a good history with the team.
Manchester United missed also the Champions League spot but they will get another chance, when they will be playing Ajax in the Europa League final. In the pot is more than just a trophy, but also a Champions League direct spot. Which means if Manchester United wins the final they will qualify automatically to the Champions League and there will be five English teams in the Champions League
Second placed Tottenham wrote history, finishing above their arch rival Arsenal for the first time in more than 20 years. The team has been playing very good under the coach Pochettino, but they never managed to do that in the Champions League and Wembley has become a nightmare for the team. Delle Alli, Eiriksen and Harry Kane has been superb this year and was the greatest factor that lead to the teams record breaking season. Harry Kane managed in the last three games go past Roemlu Lukaku in the race for the best goal scorer in Premier League. Finishing at 27 goals, this was his second consecutive season with more than 20 goals in the league. Proving for all the doubters out there that he is not only a one season wonder.
Liverpool has also been playing very good under Klopp. The German took the team to new heights, he had no problems against the top six teams. Actually Liverpool was the only team who did not lose against any other of the top teams. Their problems was more against the bottom teams. They dropped way to many points against the regulated teams and had to suffer. The injury to Mane made it more difficult for the team. And Daniel Sturridge continuous injuries made it difficult for him to actually replace him. They managed until the last game to take the fourth place and made sure they will be playing in the Champions League next season.
