Top 5 Stories from Premier League Matchweek 38
Finally, the Premier League season is over. So let’s go over the stories from the top of the league to the bottom.
1. Man City tally 100 points for the first time in PL history
City walked away from the Premier League season breaking one last record for the books. No team has ever eclipsed 100 points in the league’s history, making this Man City team one that could rival the 2003 invincible Arsenal.
2. Liverpool’s Mo Salah wins Golden Boot
Mo Salah went on a scoring tear that no player has ever done. Scoring 32 goals in 38 PL games, Salah’s debut season will go down as one of the best in history. There may be a Ballon D’ Or trophy in his future as he also got the award for Player of the Season.
3. Man United’s David De Gea wins Best Keeper
De Gea has arguably been United’s best player this season next to Romelu Lukaku. The Spaniard is one of the best keepers in the world, and his efforts definitely kept United in the top 4.
4. Swansea, Stoke, and West Brom relegated
Swansea’s relegation has been coming for previous seasons. They’ve constantly clung to survival but unfortunately, their constant struggles have finally come to haunt them. The Welsh side will spend the next season in the Championship, and perhaps for multiple seasons. Stoke City and West Brom are the surprise clubs spending time in the Championship, but they should return to the Premier League next year if they can hang onto talent.
5. Wolverhampton Wanderers and Cardiff City return to PL
The two clubs gained automatic promotion from the Championship finishing 1st and 2nd in the table. A third club will be promoted through the four-team playoff.
