The 2017/18 season of the Premier league starts on August 12. The league is made of 20 clubs. Each team plays a total of two matches against another in a round robin format home and away from home in the season. The team that ends the season at the top of the table are the league champions and the second and third placed teams earn automatic qualification to the Champions League along with the first placed team. The fourth placed teams qualify for the Champions League qualifiers while the fifth place team reaches the Europa League.
The teams that finish in the lower three rungs of the table are relegated to the Championship which is the second tier England's football league structure. A win earns a team three points, a draw gives one point while a loss means no points from that match. In its 25 years of existence, Manchester United have won the most number of titles. One can expect Chelsea, United, Liverpool, City, Arsenal and Liverpool to be genuine top-four contenders this year.
