Premier League 2015-16 in memes, see pics

They say a good picture is worth a thousand words. Well, we decided to use both as we tried to sum up the amazing season that was 2015-16 in the English Premier League. In memes. Ten of them.

Leicester Take Down a...Deewar! They had none of the wealth or reputation of the likes of Manchester City, Chelsea or Man United. But what they had was one clever manager and two amazing strikers, as well as a super disciplined side. The rest is...history, as they say. Dilly Ding Dilly Dong! Shades of Shashi Kapoor taking out the Big B in Deewar, say our Bollywood hearts.

Arsene and Arsenal: Made for Each Other...Still They might have wobbled a bit but ended up in the Champions League yet again. And ahead of Spurs. Yet again.

The Klopp Effect. They finished eighth in the EPL, but the fans at Anfield were still smiling, such was the effect of new manager Jurgen Klopp. He laughed, he smiled. he hugged players, saluted the crowd and suddenly Liverpool were feeling alive again!

No Forever After at Everton, Roberto! Everton began the season playing some attractive football and with Lukaku banging in the goals. Alas, it went pear shaped towards the end, with the Toffees out of the top ten. And manager Roberto Martinez without a job.

Villa Move Out. Multiple managers, a new chairman...nothing could save Aston Villa from relegation in a season that one of the most famous English clubs would like to forget!

Is Van Still the Man at Man U? He got them a top five finish but Louis Van Gaal's second season at Manchester United was hardly a success. The Old Trafford club were criticised for being too defensive and staid. A ray of sunlight was the arrival of Anthony Martial, but many feel he needs to get a more "liberated" role to really flourish!

Chelsea's Gods Who Failed. As dramatic as the rise of Leicester was the fall of defending champions, Chelsea. Seemingly invulnerable at the end of last season, they finished a lowly tenth. A lot of the blame for this was laid at the door of their star players, who seemingly went missing. Perhaps the most prominent of these was Eden Hazard. Player of the season last season, he was fighting for a place in the squad midway through the season. Seldom was success so fleeting.

Jose: From Genius to Ghost. He started the season as manager of the defending champions, and ended it looking at his players salute one of his predecessors. Jose Mourinho might well be feeling like someone from a Bollywood tragedy.

Sunder, you are not going under. He has never been relegated from the Premiership. And against all odds, Big Sam Allardyce did it again - he kept Sunderland up. They will be running out of skin on their teeth though!

Third from top...and bottom: no joy for Spurs or Newcastle. One started the season hoping for a top five finish. The other to just survive. At the end of it all, neither was too happy. Spurs finished third, but missed a great chance to win the title, while Newcastle did get relegated. Ironically, it was Newcastle's 5-1 hammering of Spurs that made the season worse for the latter - it not just cost them second spot, but also put them behind arch rivals Arsenal. Yet again. No joy for Pochettino or Rafa. (Text by Nimish Dubey)
