We can probably all agree that football hasn't got off to a great start in 2020. 

The new decade has a lot to live up to after a sensational decade in the 2010s.

If we were to rewind, even the most mystic fans couldn't have predicted that Liverpool - who were threatened with administration in 2010 - would be dominating the English top tier and that Manchester United would have fallen from grace.

So it's safe to say an awful lot has gone on in the intervening years - but how much of it do you remember?
