For the third consecutive year running Man City flew out of the blocks to start their second campaign under Pep Guardiola in exceptional style and going to the top of the table. Last season however, the Citizens managed to maintain that performance level unlike previous years and go on to win a record breaking 18 straight games, putting them 15 points clear after 20 matches. Man Utd started the season strongly too, having won their opening three matches without conceding a single goal, but they couldn’t quite match the attacking prowess of Man City and slipped behind.
Liverpool had a successful season reaching the Champions League final and securing their spot in the competition for next year with fourth place in the league, while Spurs had another nearly year – finishing in the top-four but failing to win anything. Finally, Chelsea and Arsenal were disappointing with both sides recruiting new managers for the upcoming season, as they finished fifth and sixth respectively.
