English Premier League 2017-18

The English Premier League turns 25 years old when its 2017/18 season starts. Since its first season in 1992/93, the Premier League has grown into arguably the biggest annual sporting event in the world. Clubs like Manchester United, Liverpool, Chelsea, Manchester City and Arsenal have gone on to become sporting empires in their own rights. Chelsea start the 2017/18 season as the defending champions. They dominated a better part of the previous season which was also their very first title under Antonio Conte. Manchester United, who are the most successful club in league history, have experienced a dry spell since the retirement of Sir Alex Ferguson in 2013. But with the likes of Nemanja Matic and Romely Lukaku being added to the team, one could expect them to challenge in the upper echelons of the league table. Where Arsenal will go under Arsene Wenger is another interesting sub-story for the season and the same can be said about Pep Guardiola and Manchester City. Everton could be dark horses of the season as they have made some smart moves in the transfer window and quietly built, at least on paper, a strong side. Newcastle United, who once used to consistently challenge for the title, make a return to the Premier League this season under Rafa Benitez. Bright and Hove Albion and Huddersfield Town are the two teams that have been promoted and both are making their Premier League debuts.
