New Delhi: The Premier League 2020-21 season will kick-off on Saturday due to all of the schedule changes. Liverpool won their maiden EPL title last season, finishing 18 points clear of second-placed Manchester City.

LFC dominated the EPL 19/20 season by winning the title with a wide margin. Manchester City were second while Manchester United and Chelsea made up the top four.

Team relegations and promotions for EPL 2020/21 season:

Norwich City, Watford and Bournemouth got relegated from the Premier League, Norwich secured just 21 points from 38 matches and were the first team to get relegated while Watford and Bournemouth managed to get 34 points each from 38 matches.

Fulham are headed back to the Premier League after claiming west London derby delight at the expense of local rivals Brentford in Tuesday’s Championship promotion playoff final at Wembley Stadium. Leeds United and West Brom also got promoted to the EPL 2020-21 season.

EPL 2020/21 standings prediction:

Champions Liverpool and Manchester City will be the favorites to win the Premier League title, while Man United, Chelsea, Arsenal and Tottenham will battle it out for the remaining two Champions League spots as they are rebuilding and nowhere near being title contenders, although Man United are closer than the other three.

English Premier League transfers 2020-21:

Chelsea FC lead the player transfer window for EPL 2020/21 season as they have completed the signings on Timo Werner from RB Leipzig and Benjamin Chilwell from Leicester City among others. Brazil midfielder Willian followed compatriot David Luiz in moving from Chelsea to Arsenal.

In the last season, Manchester United had made a mid-season signing of the Portuguese footballer Bruno Fernandes that helped the team a lot. This season, Ole Gunnar’s side have signed Ajax Football Club’s star player Donny van de Beek.

Colombian player James Rodrigues has been signed by Everton from LaLiga champions Real Madrid while Leicester City have signed Timothy Castagne from Serie-A club Atlanta.

Top scorer prediction EPL 2020/21 season:

Jamie Vardy was last season’s top scorer, netting 23 times for Leicester from chances, pipping 22-goal Danny Ings and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang to the golden boot.

This season, Liverpool’s Mohammad Salah and Tottenham Hotspur’s Harry Kane are expected to be vying for the top scorer’s award. However, Arsenal’s Aubameyang and Chelsea’s new signing Timo Werner are among the players worth looking for.

The season starts on Saturday, September 12, with newly-promoted Fulham taking on Arsenal at the Craven Cottage stadium.
