The 26th edition of the UK Premier League has ended with some spectacular results. The tournament, which started back in August 2017 ended only recently, on the 13th of May 2018. Fans of various football clubs were treated to a spectacular performance by some of the world’s top football stars.

The Winners

The winners of one of the most popular football tournaments in the world were Manchester City. Guardiola’s team succeeded in beating Southampton in their last match. Players are sure to remember Jesus’ goal scored well into the extra time at the end of the match.

City won the tournament with a total of 100 points. They were followed by their fierce rivals, Manchester United, who could only get 81 points. Tottenham Hotspurs and Liverpool came in third and fourth place respectively. They earned 3rd and 4th place with 77 and 75 points. All 4 teams will now proceed to the Champions League group stage.

The Records

This edition of the League has been witness to some amazing records, many achieved by the winners themselves. In fact, the team has broken 7 records, including most points, most wins, and most consecutive wins. With 106 goals scored, City also broke the record for most goals scored and this helped them get the biggest winning margin ever.

Other teams shared in this record-breaking tournament. The Tottenham vs Arsenal match saw the highest ever attendance, with over 83 thousand eager spectators. Mohamed Salah of Liverpool now has the record for most goals, scoring a total of 32. West Brom’s Gareth Barry had his 653rd appearance shatter the previous record.

The Goals

At the end of the day, whichever way a team performs on the pitch, it’s the number of goals which really counts. Whilst Salah scored the most goals, Hotspur’s Harry Kane was close on his tail, scoring 30 goals. Manchester City’s Sergio Agüero, Leicester City’s Jamie Vardy, and Manchester’s City’s Raheem Sterling scored 21, 20 and 18 goals respectively.

The Losers

The 2017/18 Premier League also saw its share of losers. Swansea City, Stoke City, and West Bromwich Albion all ended up at the very bottom of the table. All 3 teams have been relegated to the EFL Championship. Swansea City lost a total of 21 games whereas the other 2 teams each lost 19 games. Southampton just barely remained in the League, having gotten just 3 points more than Swansea City.
