Who finished as Premier League Champions?
Perhaps the easiest statistic of the season, Manchester City finished first place in the 2018/19 season. Beating runners up Liverpool, Manchester City finished the season with 98 points, one more than their second placed rivals.
Which of these teams were relegated from the premier league?
Fulham were relegated from the premier league, following a disappointing season which saw them reach 26 points across the season. Despite heavy spending during the summer of 2018, Fulham were unable to turn this spend in to success on the pitch. They will of course be looking to bounce back next season.
Which of these teams appeared in the champions league final?
Liverpool is the answer, as the Merseyside team reached a second Champions League final on the trot. Liverpool came agonisingly close last season, and earned the chance to put their wrongs right by beating Bayern Munich, Porto, and Barcelona on the road to the final. This of course included the famous second leg comeback against the Spanish side.
And who did they play against?
Liverpool faced Tottenham Hotspur in the final. Spurs’ road to the final included a famous win of their own, beating fellow Premier League hopefuls Manchester City in a two-legged tie which finished 4-4 overall (with Tottenham winning on away goals). Spurs carried on from this with a famous comeback of their own against Ajax.
Which of these teams won the Champions League?
The answer is of course Liverpool, who capped off a memorable, albeit disappointing on a domestic level, season with their first European trophy since they famously won both the Champions League and the UEFA Super Cup in 2005. The win ended a string of near misses in Europe for Liverpool, having come runners up in the 2015/16 Europa League and the 2017/18 Champions League.
Finally, what was the scoreline?
The game finished 2-0, and was bookended by two Liverpool goals. Salah scored the opener after an early penalty was awarded for handball, whilst Origi capped off the evening with a late goal to seal the win. Liverpool defender Virgil Van Dijk was awarded man of the match for his efforts.
Back to the Premier League, which player finished the season with most assists?
Eden Hazard is the answer. The Belgian player finished the season with 15 assists. Perhaps surprisingly the second placed player was not from one of the larger clubs in the division, with Ryan Fraser or Bournemouth narrowly missing out on this accolade having contributed 14 assists throughout the season.
The Europa League also saw two English teams compete for the trophy, which one of these teams played in the final?
Arsenal earned their place in the Europa League Final, their first final in European competition since they lost against Barcelona in the 2005/06 Champions League final. Arsenal’s most recent success in Europe came all the way back in 1994, and they earned a chance to update the history books with wins including a 7-3 aggregate victory against Valencia in the semi-finals.
Who did they play against?
The Europa League was contested by Arsenal and Chelsea, two teams who, although they did not quite reach the heights they had hoped for in the Premier League, did earn themselves a great chance to add some end of season silverware to their cabinets. Chelsea’s road to the final included convincing wins over Dynamo Kyiv (8-0 on aggregate), and Slavia Prague (5-3 on aggregate).
Which team won?
Chelsea won the game, which saw them lift their second title in the current incarnation of the Europa League. Prior to that, Chelsea of course won the Champions League, and the team earned the right to challenge for the premier European trophy again in the 2019/20 season.
What was the scoreline?
The final was contested in Baku, Azerbaijan and if the TV coverage was anything to go by, the atmosphere was nowhere near what we have come to expect in European club competitions. The score-line looked to be mirroring this at halftime, with the game goalless. However, second half goals from Giroud, Pedro, Iwobi, and a brace from Hazard saw the game finish 4-1 to Chelsea.
Which of these teams finished bottom of the premier league?
This unwanted title was won by Huddersfield Town, who finished their season with a total of 16 points over the course of the 38-game season. Huddersfield also finished with another record for the season, having finished with a goal difference of -54, the worst in the division.
The premier league had three golden boot winners, who did NOT win the award?
The golden boot was shared by three players for the first time since the 1998/99 season, when Michael Owen of Liverpool, Dwight Yorke of Manchester United, and Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink of Leeds United shared the accolade. This time around, the award was shared between Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, Sadio Mané, and last season’s winner, Mohamed Salah.
How many goals did they score each to win this joint award?
It took 22 goals to be included amongst the winners for the 2018/19 golden boot. This total was ten goals lower than last season’s record of 32, scored by Salah, and the lowest amount of goals to win the accolade since the 2010/11 season when the award was shared between Dimitar Berbatov of Manchester United and Carlos Tevez of Manchester City.
Which of these teams were NOT promoted to the premier League?
Middlesbrough came agonisingly close to gaining the chance to play in the championship play offs, however they missed out by a point, finishing on 73 points in total for the season. The team did at least build a good foundation towards a top 6 finish the following season.
Which of these other teams did not make the Championship play offs?
Swansea City did not reach the play offs, missing out by 9 points. The Welsh side enjoyed some good spells during their first season back in the Championship following a spell in the Premier League, much of which was created by in-form player Daniel James. However, there is still a lot of work to be done if the swans wish to see another game in the Premier League in the near future.
Who won the Championship play offs?
The play offs were won by Aston Villa, in a game which will live long in the memory for the Birmingham side. The team returned to the Premier League for the first time since the 2015/16 season, when they dropped out of the top division for the first time since the late 1980s.
In League One, which of these teams were promoted?
Luton Town were promoted, following an impressive campaign which saw them finish the season with 94 points from 46 matches played. They were followed closely behind by Barnsley, who finished the season with 91 points. The final place was taken by Charlton, who not only finished third place, but also backed this up with an impressive play-off campaign.
Which team was relegated from League One?
Bradford City were relegated from league one, moving down to league two for the 2019/20 season. Bradford are perhaps best remembered in recent years for their league cup final appearance; however, they did not look like regaining this form in league or cup this season, finishing 9 points short of safety.
Down to League Two, which team won the league?
Lincoln City won League Two, ensuring they moved in to the 2019/20 season as a League One side. Compared to some of the other English leagues, Lincoln's triumph was comfortable. They won the league with 85 points, two games clear of Bury who finished in second place with 79 points.
Which team finished bottom of the football league (bottom of league two)?
Yeovil Town were relegated from the football league, following their twenty fourth placed finish which earned them a place in the National League of 2019/20. They finished a point behind Notts County, three behind Macclesfield Town, and 7 behind Cambridge United.
Finally, which team won promotion into the football league via the national league play offs?
The National League play-offs were won by Salford City. Salford have gained a lot of exposure recently thanks to the fact they were partially bought by Manchester United legends including Gary Neville, Ryan Giggs, and David Beckham.
