A great Premier League has come to an end, one of the most bizarre seasons ever. Here are my thoughts on the Premier League season 2019/20.
The beginning of the season had some interesting results. With Manchester United beating Chelsea 4-0 and Manchester City defeated by Norwich 3-2. Also very exciting transfers like Maguire to Manchester United and Aaron Wan-Bissaka to Manchester United. So everyone was excited for the next 9 months of football about to come.
January came with some new signings like Timo Werner to Chelsea and Gedson Fernandes to Spurs. The league standings were very unexpected with Sheffield United at 6th place in January, and league leaders Liverpool undefeated and are running away with it. Now everyone was excited for the climax of the season.
The global pandemic couldn’t have come at a worse time. We were heading
to the ultimate climax. The relegation battle, the title race, the unexpected results were about to come, but with the vast spreading of COVID-19, the football leagues all shut down until further notice. The 100 days without football showed why the game is in our hearts so much.
When football returned with the absence of fans, the game felt different.
The fans were a crucial part of football. Without them the game lost a bit of flavor. But we made the best of it and enjoyed it. So the first game back…….
VAR, the most problematic thing in football. On the first game back the
ball clearly crossed the line and VAR didn’t give a goal. VAR has been the most talked about issue in the games, not the game itself.
Not everyone will agree but here is my team of the season:
Goalkeeper: Nick Pope of Burnley: 38 appearances 15 clean sheets
Right-Back: Aaron Wan-Bissaka Man U: 35 apps 11 clean sheets 4 assists
Center back 1: Harry Maguire Man U: 38 apps 13 clean sheets 1 assist 1 goal
Center back 2: Van Dijk Liverpool: 38 apps 15 clean sheets 1 assist 5 goals
Left back: Andy Robertson Liverpool: 36 apps 9 clean sheets 12 assists 2 goals
Midfield 1: Bruno Fernandes Man U: 14 apps 7 assists 8 goals
Midfield 2: Henderson Liverpool: 30 apps 5 assists 4 goals
Midfield 3: De Bruyne Man City: 35 apps 20 assists 13 goals
Forward 1: Marcus Rashford Man U: 31 apps 7 assists 17 goals
Forward 2: Raúl Jimenez Wolves: 38 apps 6 assists 17 goals
Forward 3: Mason Greenwood Man U: 31 apps 1 assist 10 goals
That is my TOTS.
