Champions: Manchester City

Manchester City once again demonstrated their dominance in the Premier League, clinching the title with a total of 91 points. Pep Guardiola's side showed remarkable consistency throughout the season, boasting a record of 28 wins, 7 draws, and just 3 losses. Their offensive prowess was on full display, scoring 96 goals while conceding 34, giving them a goal difference of +62.

Runners-up: Arsenal

Arsenal put up a strong challenge for the title, finishing just two points behind Manchester City with 89 points. Mikel Arteta's team matched City in wins (28) but drew two more games and lost five. The Gunners' defense was particularly impressive, conceding only 29 goals, the lowest in the league. Their resurgence this season has been a highlight, bringing them back into the upper echelons of English football.

Arsenal who were in blistering form after xmas will be kicking themselves for the bad run of form prior to Xmas when they lost 3 out of 7 matches in December letting Man City and Liverpool into a 3 way title race.

Champions League Qualifiers

The top four teams in the Premier League secure spots in the prestigious UEFA Champions League. This season's qualifiers are:

  2. Chelsea - Finished sixth with 63 points. It was a season of rebuilding under a new manager, and they will aim to go deeper in the Europa League next season.
