With the Premier League season just weeks away, we thought it was the perfect time to look back on the season and look forward.
1) Injuries and suspensions In August, Manchester United goalkeeper David De Gea suffered a cruciate knee ligament injury against Chelsea.
The next day, Chelsea suffered a similar injury to that of their star man, Eden Hazard.
At the start of September, the Reds also suffered a serious blow to their title hopes when they lost their manager Antonio Conte for two months.
Conte has been ruled out for two weeks with a knee injury.
After the international break, United had a great season with a win against Southampton, a draw against Crystal Palace and an emphatic 3-1 win against Swansea City.
The results are as follows: 1.
Manchester United 1-0 Crystal Palace – October 5, 2019 Manchester United won the first leg at Selhurst Park, which ended with a penalty shootout to seal their first Premier League title.
However, it was a poor performance from the champions.
Despite winning the first game, the home side conceded four goals in the second leg and United conceded two in the third game.
It was a worrying time for United, who had to play without the services of Ashley Young, Jesse Lingard, Juan Mata and Marouane Fellaini.
They will be hoping to get some rest with the return of Conte at the helm on October 7 against Tottenham.
Chelsea 0-1 Everton – October 7, 2019 After losing 3-0 at Stoke City, Chelsea were the only team to beat Everton at home this season.
The result put Chelsea ahead for the first time since February.
However it was not enough to keep them in the title race and they are now only two points adrift of Liverpool.
Everton will be looking to take another step forward against Chelsea in the Premier Cup on October 15 when they travel to Stamford Bridge.
Manchester City 0-0 Arsenal – October 15, 2019 With Manchester City now just two points off the Premier Premier League leaders, there is no reason why they cannot finish the season as top of the table favourites.
With two games left, City are only one point behind the Gunners.
However Arsenal are the clear favourites for the title and it will be interesting to see if they can find the back of the net to give them a second consecutive title.
Manchester Arsenal 0-3 Tottenham Hotspur – October 23, 2019 Tottenham Hotspot has won just one of their last 11 league games.
Their title hopes are now at an end.
In the other seven games, the Gunner have won just two and lost two.
The last time they won both at White Hart Lane was in October 2015.
If Tottenham can get on top of Arsenal and avoid defeat, they could be in the mix for the Premier Football League title in two weeks time.
Tottenham Hotspurs 1-2 Manchester United – October 30, 2019 Despite being one of the most impressive sides in the league this season, Tottenham Hotspots last game against United was a disappointment.
They scored just two goals in four matches and only one of them was an own goal.
United are one of just five teams to have failed to score in six consecutive games.
It will be an interesting clash in the derby on October 30 with Spurs having won their last three games.
Liverpool 1-3 Southampton – November 6, 2019 Liverpool are the only side to have beaten Manchester United in the last seven Premier League games.
Liverpool were also the only one to have a win over Southampton.
Their form has been nothing short of incredible, with six clean sheets in the seven games they have played against the Red Devils.
It is important to remember that they lost 2-0 to Manchester City at Anfield in the Europa League quarter-finals.
However they have now won their past three league games and are currently only one place adrift.
Manchester Spurs 1-1 Liverpool – November 14, 2019 The Reds have not won a home league game since the first half of the season.
Their only away victory was at home against Swansea on August 3.
However a win at Old Trafford would put them on a two-match winning streak and would give them an advantage over Liverpool in the standings.
Southampton 1-4 Liverpool – October 28, 2020 Southampton were relegated from the Premier league in January and have only won one league game this season in the space of four matches.
The defeat to Liverpool at Oldham Town in the FA Cup on Saturday was their only defeat this season and the only time they lost two consecutive games in the competition.
The Saints were also bottom of the Championship at the end of the 2016/17 season.
However with a squad that is set to feature several new faces, the Saints are a team who should be on the rise this season with players such as Jermain Defoe, Nathan Redmond and Rickie Lambert.
West Ham 1-6 Southampton – October 31, 2020 West Ham’s last home game
