Man Utd, Liverpool, Chelsea: What are the Premier League's craziest stats of 2019/20?


The 2019/20 Premier League season came to a dramatic close on Sunday afternoon.

After the tragic COVID-19 pandemic forced the campaign to pause for three months, we can safely say that there will never be another Premier League year like the one we've just concluded.

Liverpool fans were terrified earlier in the year that all their fantastic work would be sideswiped by the season being rendered null and void, but they defied the odds to become champions.

Chaotic end to 2019/20

And although going the season unbeaten or breaking the points record weren't to be, they still rounded off a stellar campaign by defeating Newcastle United on the final day to move to 99 points.

Manchester United made a late dash into third place to secure Champions League qualification, joining rivals Manchester City and Chelsea in Europe's premier competition next season.

But there was also heartbreak at the opposite end of the table with Norwich City, Bournemouth and Watford crashing down to the Championship after failing to save themselves from relegation.


Reminiscing on the season

It's been a hectic few weeks of football to ensure we've reached those conclusions as soon as possible, but impatient fans will be happy to hear that we don't have long to wait until 2020/21.

The new campaign has been confirmed to start on September 12, less than two months on from Sunday's conclusion, while European competitions can keep us occupied throughout August.

But one thing that we can all enjoy in the mean time is reminiscing on the thrills and spills - of which there have been inordinate amounts this season - of the 2019/20 campaign just gone.


The best Premier League stats

And although the best player, goal and manager of the season has already been discussed to death, BT Sport have taken a unique look at things with a fascinating Twitter thread.

The Premier League broadcasters deployed the help of Opta, Squawka and WhoScored to compile 25 'fascinating stats and facts' from the 2019/20 campaign - and it makes for interesting reading.

Check out the thread in its entirety below to see which statistics shocked you the most: 

Crazy stats and facts

Liverpool fans will be lapping up Alisson Becker matching Raheem Sterling for league assists, but it goes without saying that the England superstar did outscore the whole Liverpool squad.

It's also amusing to see that Divock Origi has had such a penchant for scoring during evening games and Virgil van Dijk is only the fifth omnipresent Premier League-winning player.

Then there's the fact that David Luiz, for all his brilliance in the FA Cup semi-final, has outdone himself by conceding five(!!!) penalties this term for an unwanted piece of Premier League history.


It has then, by all accounts, been the whackiest Premier League year of all time and that's down to both the chaos on the pitch as well as away from it.

Everyone here at GIVEMESPORT wishes that the tragedy of the latter clears as soon as possible and that the joyous brilliance of the former makes 2020/21 just as bonkers as 2019/20.
