EPL, aka English Premier League, just finished on a high note, and Manchester City has been right on the top of the table with a whopping 86 points. The last game was between Manchester City and Chelsea, and Manchester City had won the 2020-2021 league living up to its glory, being the winner for the third time in the last four years.
Harry Kane of Tottenham Hotspur has been right on the top among the highest scorers in EPL by scoring 23 goals beating Liverpool’s Mohammad Salah. Salah was not too far behind to take the top spot and has scored just one less, setting the score straight to 22. The third highest scorer of this season was Manchester United’s Bruno Fernandes with 18 goals.
Last year on September 12, the Premier League season 2020-2021 started and took a break on Christmas after the teams played some of their important games. With Manchester City winning the crown, the teams are heading towards the next season. The season 2021-2022 is going to begin right after a few months in August 2021.
The Manchester City Comeback after a Disastrous Performance
Even last Christmas, no one could have predicted that Manchester City would be able to continue its winning streak. Who would have thought that a team that lost a couple of their important games and were eighth at the point table would have turned the table in the same season next year, right after a few months gap? The gap perhaps proved to be a blessing for the winning team as it won the league, not in some neck-to-neck competition but having 12 points more than the team that stood second in the point table. The unpredictability of the game has once again been proved, and how! Therefore it put a stamp on why English Premier League matches are never to be missed.
The Top Goal Scorer Teams Position
One would have thought Harry Kane’s 23 goals would be enough to take Tottenham Hotspur to at least among the top three teams, if not making it the winner. However, team and individual performance are two different entities, and the fact has been once again proved in this season’s English Premier League. The top scorer has left enough players behind, but his team could finish 7th in the point table among the 20 teams playing in the league this season. Teamwork becomes so important in such leagues to back the best player among all the team. So, can we agree with Harry Kane’s decision to leave his team so that he can join a better team to add a trophy to his glorious career?
The Liverpool Disappointment
The one team that might have highly disappointed its fans has to be Liverpool, as they had ended their last year with a bang by being on top of the table ahead of all teams by four points. Not much to boast about looking at how far Manchester City has taken the game to its favor but the ending note was bang on by Liverpool last year. So fans expecting the team to maintain the winning streak and eventually winning this season were not unlikely. However, the break has perhaps changed the wind and taken it to Manchester City’s favor. Liverpool was a hot favorite but ended up third on the points table.
Every game in English Premier League is unpredictable, and every team has chances to win, even the underdogs like West Ham and Newcastle. Such underdogs might not be the winner, but their tremendous performance has surprised many of the league admirers and added more admirers for the team who are looking forward to their performance next season. The top teams and the hot favorites remained the same even this year and are expected to turn the game to their own favor. Hopefully, the next season will be equally exciting as this year and will end without the dark shadow of the current situation that the whole world is suffering from.
