A few weeks on from the end of the 2014/15 Premier League, we look back at some of the best and worst from the campaign.

Best Team: Chelsea

Jose Mourinho's men were by far the best side in the Premier League this season, emphasised by their dominance and their eight-point victory ahead of Manchester City.

Chelsea lost just three times, to Newcastle, Tottenham and West Bromwich Albion. Also, they were undefeated at home all season long in the Premier League, and with their additions of Diego Costa and Cesc Fabregas last summer, you can see why.

Worst Team: QPR

Queens Park Rangers endured a torrid season this time around, culminating in their relegation straight back into the Championship. Harry Redknapp left the club in February, with the club embroiled in a dogfight to stay in the Premier League, in which they were unsuccessful.

Problems with unity both on the field and in the dressing room resulted in the blame game being played at the club, less than ideal in the situation they were in. In the end they finished eight points from safety and rock bottom of the league.

Overachievers: Southampton

Following the departure of players such as Adam Lallana, Dejan Lovren and Luke Shaw, not to mention Mauricio Pochettino leaving to take over as head coach of Tottenham, most feared the worst for Southampton, with relegation a real possibility.

Despite this, new manager Ronald Koeman did a fantastic job with the South Coast club and led them to a 7th place finish, and a place in next season's Europa League. Signings such as Ryan Bertrand, Dusan Tadic, Sadio Mane and Graziano Pelle, as well as the loan signing of Toby Aldeweireld from Atletico Madrid, have beefed up their squad with quality and numbers, and an attractive style of play has won them much praise.

Underachievers: Newcastle United

Considering the size of the football club, Newcastle United have had a really poor season. A club like the Magpies should not be involved in relegation scraps.

Only a final-day victory against West Ham kept them up, by the skin of their teeth, and a serious re-building job is needed to bring back the good times at St. James's Park. New head coach Steve McLaren has definitely got a lot on his plate now.
