The 2019/20 Premier League season starts today

English football fans were treated to an incredible 2018/19 season.

In one of the greatest title battles in Premier League history, it was eventually Manchester City that managed to outlast Liverpool as they finished one point clear.

Their 98 point tally was the second most in Premier League history and ensured their fourth triumph in the past decade.

It’s been 89 days since they lifted the title at the Amex Stadium.

Football fans have been waiting patiently for Premier League football to start again but the wait is finally over.

The 2019/20 season kicks off tonight, with last season’s runners up hosting newly promoted Norwich City to Anfield.

The Reds have had a quiet summer, making no major signings.

Despite their lack of recruitment they will want to get off to a good start and make a statement when kicking off the season.

Jurgen Klopp’s side are expected to be battling for their first Premier League title again, with Manchester City as their main challengers.

They finished 25 points of the chasing pack last season, but could another team put together a title challenge this campaign?

The most likely challengers would appear to be Tottenham Hotspur.

Mauricio Pochettino made a number of signings this summer for big money.

Tanguy Ndombele, Ryan Sessegnon and Giovani Lo Celso have all arrived for a total of £92 million.

Arsenal have also done great business in the summer transfer market, with David Luiz, Dani Ceballos and Nicolas Pepe significantly strengthening their squad.

They will be targeting a return to the top four at the very least.

Elsewhere, there are many questions that will be answered over the next nine months.

How will Ole Gunnar Solskjaer do in his first full season as Manchester United manager? Can any team break into the Premier League ‘top six’? And which teams will go down?

The best league in the world is finally back.
