Every Premier League club in two sentences

Bet Central looks at every Premier League clubs 2019/2020 season and summarizes their campiagn in two sentences from the champions Liverpool to bottom club Norwich.

Liverpool

Simply the best. Deserved title winners after 30 years of agony.

Manchester City

Lost nine times this season despite being the league’s top scorers says it all about their weird season. Expect a big reaction next season on the field and in the transfer market.

Manchester United

A tale of two seasons with the signing of Bruno Fernandes the reference point. His arrival saw United transform into a side that’s very hard to beat going on a 15 match unbeaten run in the league to finish third…impressive.

Chelsea

A solid first season for Frank Lampard although they dropped off in terms of form after the new year. They should have sealed third place a long time ago but there are many reasons to be optimistic about this current team.

Leicester City

A great season but there will be regrets as Leicester City should have sewn up third place a long time ago after having a monopoly on the position. A positive campaign for Brendan Rodgers but a worrying dip in form in the second half.

Tottenham Hotspur

Jose Mourinho took over the Spurs job when they were languishing in 14th but he managed to take them to sixth and a Europa League spot. Perhaps it’s not as bad as Spurs fans would like to think although the football leaves a lot to be desired.

Wolves

Nuno has created an exciting squad capable of playing excellent football and defending like a unit. They should be proud of their season although there is a sense they could have pushed the Top Four harder.

Arsenal

Yet another season Arsenal finish below Spurs and another season of disappointment. Mikel Arteta’s appointment gives reason for optimism though.

Sheffield United

Chris Wilder’s team should be very proud of themselves finishing ninth after winning promotion. A team that is very hard to beat on its day and they deserve plaudits for their season.

Burnley

Sean Dyche continues to churn out remarkable achievements with a Burnley squad you always feel is lacking in quality. He managed a 10th paced finish despite a multitude of off-field problems at the club.

Southampton

The Saints are a really good side and their manager Ralph Hasenhüttl’s reputation continues to evolve. They played some breathtaking footie – with Danny Ings shining very bright – but they’ll want top 10 next season.

Everton

An underwhelming season for the Blue side of the Merseyside after sacking Marco Silva early on. Carlo Ancelotti replaced him so the focus will be on next season for things to improve.

Newcastle

Steve Bruce actually did a pretty good job finishing 13th although the biggest talking point is the potential takeover of the club. Next season’s Newcastle is already more attractive than this seasons, as the media coverage suggests.

Crystal Palace

Another underwhelming campaign for Palace but that’s what you get with Roy Hodgson as a manager: defensive solidity without much fuss and an over-reliance on Wilfried Zaha. They could be in this position again next season (again) if there aren’t any new faces at the club.

Brighton

Graham Potter is attempting a cultural overhaul of the club and the fact that they survived the season is a big plus for him. They played good footie but they’ll want more results on the field to justify their changing of philosophy.

West Ham

For all West Ham’s thrilling attacking talent they continue to disappoint every season. David Moyes is a dependable manager but not a transformative one, so there is not much to cling onto as a Hammers fan.

Aston Villa

Villa struggled throughout the season despite spending big in the transfer market. They were lucky to survive on the last day but at least it gives them something to build on for next season.

Bournemouth

Heart-breaking for the club and manager Eddie Howe who have been an ever-present in the league since 2014. What will happen to the club who were the poster boys for surviving and prospering in the league?

Watford

The Hornets deserved to be relegated because of the Pozzo’s (owners) handling of the club. The comings and goings of managers every season is not a sustainable strategy and this should be a wake-up call to the club who can’t rely on a great scouting network solely.

Norwich

After a good performance against Liverpool in the season opener and then a win over Manceshgetr City – there was excitement around Daniel Farke’s side. However, the realities of the Premier League became very clear and their squad and brave tactics were exposed
