Final Premier League Standings

1 - Manchester City

City were pushed hard by Arsenal but once again proved masters in closing a title race to become the first English top-flight club to win four successive league championships. Liverpool cracked under City’s relentless pressure, and while Arsenal took it to the wire, a run of 19 wins and four draws since their last defeat saw Pep Guardiola’s side prevail. Impressively, they had to cope without midfielder Kevin De Bruyne for several months and also dealt with injuries to striker Erling Haaland. However, such is the depth of City’s squad that they simply continued churning out wins. It is hard to pick out individuals from a supreme squad, although this felt like the season that the league’s player of the year, Phil Foden, stepped completely out of De Bruyne’s shadow, scoring 19 league goals. Already, the question is who can stop City from making it five in a row next season. – find out for yourself with official Manchester City hospitality packages.

2 - Arsenal

Arsenal have come a long way since last season, pushing Manchester City to the final day of the title race and finishing runners-up with 89 points—just one fewer than the legendary total achieved by The Invincibles in 2003-04. Ultimately, it was not enough to dislodge City from their perch, but Mikel Arteta’s Arsenal have proven themselves as a formidable force. Declan Rice fully justified his £100 million ($126.82 million) price tag, commanding Arsenal’s midfield with authority. Meanwhile, Bukayo Saka, with 16 league goals, and skipper Martin Odegaard had tremendous seasons – will they have another great season ahead of them? Find out with official Arsenal hospitality packages.

3 - Liverpool

Outgoing manager Juergen Klopp did not get the farewell he had hoped for, as Liverpool’s unlikely dream of a quadruple evaporated during a dreadful run of form beginning with a dramatic FA Cup defeat at arch-rivals Manchester United in mid-March. Third place and the League Cup are all Liverpool have to show for a season that once again faded at the business end, echoing the disappointment of two seasons ago when they lost the title by a point and the Champions League final by a single goal. However, after a wholesale overhaul of an ageing midfield, the Reds appear ahead of schedule on what Klopp has described as “Liverpool 2.0,” highlighted by breakout seasons for academy prospects such as Northern Ireland full-back Conor Bradley. The project will continue under departing Feyenoord boss Arne Slot, who inherits a high-class team but one that needs a few tweaks to match the league’s latest top two next term – Does Arne Slot have what it takes? Find out with official Liverpool hospitality packages.

4 - Aston Villa

Aston Villa’s dream season under Spanish manager Unai Emery culminated in a fourth-place finish and a coveted Champions League spot, marking their first qualification for Europe’s elite club competition since 1982-83, when they entered the European Cup as holders. Celebrating their 150th anniversary in 2024, Villa were languishing in 14th place and sinking fast when Emery replaced Steven Gerrard in October 2022. Emery has since masterminded a remarkable turnaround with astute squad additions and a more attacking mindset. The goals of Ollie Watkins and an impressive eight-game home winning streak from the start of the campaign, which was surprisingly ended by Sheffield United (1-1) in December, provided the early momentum that faltered towards the season’s end but ultimately secured their top-four finish. However, a disappointment remains their unexpected exit from the Europa Conference League semi-finals at the hands of Greek side Olympiakos Piraeus, including a 4-2 home defeat, in a competition Emery had aimed to win.

5 - Tottenham Hotspur

There is a sense of disappointment surrounding Tottenham’s first season under Ange Postecoglou, as a wretched run of form in the closing weeks dashed their top-four hopes. However, considering the circumstances—particularly the departure of England striker Harry Kane to Bayern Munich—fans would likely have accepted fifth place and a return to the club’s mantra of ‘daring football’ at the outset of the campaign. Postecoglou’s high-intensity, risk-taking style propelled Spurs to their best start after 10 games in a Premier League season, although cracks soon appeared as the demands proved too much for some of the current squad. Despite this, Postecoglou remains steadfast in his philosophy, and the club would be wise to match the Australian’s ambition with high-quality signings in the close season, especially with a return to continental football in the Europa League to contend with.

6 - Chelsea

Chelsea’s 2023/24 season was a tale of two halves. The early months were turbulent, with Pochettino struggling to make an impact and the team floundering despite significant investment. Injuries to key players like Reece James and Christopher Nkunku compounded their woes, culminating in a disastrous 4-2 home defeat to Wolves on Christmas Eve. However, the new year brought a remarkable turnaround. Chelsea lost just once after February, powered by Cole Palmer’s stellar performances. They reached the League Cup final and FA Cup semi-finals, finishing the season with five consecutive wins to secure a European spot. Despite this strong finish, Pochettino’s departure by mutual consent has left the club searching for yet another new manager, underscoring the ongoing instability at Stamford Bridge.

7 - Newcastle United

Newcastle manager Eddie Howe may find relief in the fact that recent drama elsewhere in the Premier League has shifted focus away from his Saudi Arabian-backed club, which has quietly underperformed this season. Despite last season’s fourth-place finish and Champions League return, injuries and controversies have hindered Newcastle’s progress. The absence of midfielder Sandro Tonali due to a gambling-related ban and a string of injuries prevented Howe from fielding his best side, ultimately leading to disappointing results. With the depth of their squad and significant financial resources, Newcastle was expected to challenge for a top-four spot. Falling short of this target leaves Howe facing tough questions as he evaluates the team’s performance

8 - Manchester United

Manchester United endured a turbulent season under Erik Ten Hag, culminating in their lowest-ever Premier League finish, landing them in 8th place and missing out on European football for the upcoming season. Despite this disappointment, the loyal support of the United faithful never wavered, with the Dutch manager acknowledging them as “the best fans in the world.” The Red Devils’ European campaign was cut short with a last-place finish in their UEFA Champions League group, leaving them only active in domestic cup competitions and the Premier League. Their Carabao Cup journey ended abruptly in Round 4 with a humbling 3-0 defeat to Newcastle United. In the Premier League, Manchester United struggled, recording only 60 points and 18 wins, with a win rate falling below 50% and conceding 58 goals, marking one of their worst defensive records in the league.

9 - West Ham United

West Ham United’s season saw them secure a respectable top-half finish and make another impressive run in European competition. However, despite these achievements, a significant portion of the fanbase remained critical of manager David Moyes, doubting his ability to elevate the club further. Nevertheless, Moyes will depart the club at the end of the season with considerable credit. Despite challenges such as the absence of key player Declan Rice and some heavy defeats, West Ham still managed notable victories, including away wins against Arsenal and Tottenham Hotspur, and a commendable performance against Bayer Leverkusen in the Europa League quarter-finals. With Julen Lopetegui set to take the helm next season, fans can anticipate a new approach, but Moyes leaves the club in a strong position for the future.

10 - Crystal Palace

Under the guidance of Roy Hodgson, Crystal Palace secured safety last season, but this campaign saw disappointing results under the former Liverpool and England boss, leading to his resignation in February with the South London club languishing in 16th place. Oliver Glasner took over as his replacement, and the team’s fortunes quickly improved, with a win and two draws in his first four matches lifting them out of the relegation battle. In the final weeks of the season, the Austrian coach revitalized a young Palace side, securing significant victories over Liverpool and Manchester United, setting them on course for a promising future. However, the club’s success hinges on retaining talents like Michael Olise and Eberechi Eze.

11 - Brighton & Hove Albion

Brighton experienced their best-ever season in their 123-year history during the 2022-23 campaign, finishing sixth and earning praise for their playing style and tactical prowess under manager Roberto De Zerbi. However, they couldn’t sustain that success in the following season. Despite a strong start with five wins in their first six games, the 2023-24 season saw them regress to mid-table mediocrity, coupled with a last-16 exit in the Europa League at the hands of AS Roma. The departures of Moises Caicedo and Alexis Mac Allister from midfield significantly impacted their performance, leading to a decline in possession dominance. With only three Premier League wins between September and February, spanning 18 games, Brighton struggled to maintain momentum. The season ended with them barely crossing the finish line, and the absence of European football next season may have influenced De Zerbi’s decision to depart.

12 - Bournemouth

Andoni Iraola faced a challenging start to his tenure as a Premier League manager with Bournemouth, enduring nine winless games despite significant spending on new players. However, the club maintained faith in the Spaniard’s abilities and his high-pressing tactical approach. As the team gradually adapted to this demanding style of play, they began to yield positive results. Despite a period of inconsistency earlier in the season, Bournemouth steadily climbed up the league table. Striker Dominic Solanke notably achieved career-best figures with 19 goals, contributing significantly to the team’s resurgence. Iraola’s efforts were recognized with a Manager of the Season nomination, acknowledging his role in orchestrating Bournemouth’s remarkable turnaround during his debut campaign in English football.

13 - Fulham

Fulham aimed to shed their ‘yo-yo club’ reputation and secure Premier League survival this season, prioritizing stability over the previous campaign’s top-half finish. Despite pessimistic pre-season predictions, the team managed to retain manager Marco Silva, a significant boost for their prospects. While they lost their top scorer, Aleksandar Mitrovic, Rodrigo Muniz’s return from loan at Middlesbrough provided a promising alternative, despite initial struggles with injuries. Muniz contributed nine goals to the cause. Notably, Fulham achieved victories against top clubs such as Arsenal, Tottenham Hotspur, and Manchester United, a marked improvement from the previous season. With Silva potentially staying on, Fulham’s future in the Premier League appears promising as they continue to solidify their position in the top flight.

14 - Wolverhampton Wanders

Despite initial concerns, Wolves managed to steer clear of the relegation zone throughout the season, showcasing memorable performances along the way. The absence of star player Pedro Neto due to injury undoubtedly hindered their progress, with fans lamenting the impact of several contentious Video Assistant Referee (VAR) decisions that marred their campaign. Despite these setbacks, Gary O’Neil’s side secured notable victories, including a stunning win over league champions Manchester City at home and doubles over both Tottenham and Chelsea. The superb form of Wolves’ South Korean striker Hwang Hee-chan, who netted 12 league goals, provided a significant boost, while the brilliance of Portuguese winger Neto added flair and dynamism whenever he played, albeit limited by injury. Nevertheless, Wolves’ season culminated in a 14th-place finish, with their performance perhaps hinting at even greater potential with a fully fit squad.

15 - Everton

For Everton, the specter of relegation loomed for the third consecutive season, exacerbated by an eight-point deduction due to financial irregularities. Despite these challenges, they appeared resigned to mid-table mediocrity for much of the campaign. However, a late surge saw them secure safety with four wins and two draws in their final seven games. The highlight of their season came with a historic home victory over Liverpool, ending a 14-year drought and sparking jubilant chants from the fans. Despite boasting the fourth-best defense in the league, Everton struggled in midfield and attack, reflected in their meager tally of 40 goals, the second-lowest in the league. Looking ahead to their 70th consecutive season in the top flight, Everton faces continued uncertainty amidst a protracted takeover and plans for a new stadium, suggesting another challenging season ahead.

16 - Brentford

Brentford’s third Premier League campaign proved to be a test of resilience as they navigated through a challenging season marked by injuries and absences. Despite finishing a commendable ninth the previous season, the Bees found themselves flirting dangerously close to the relegation zone at times. The absence of key players like goalkeeper David Raya, forward Ivan Toney, and Bryan Mbeumo due to various reasons further compounded their struggles. Defensive woes were exacerbated by injuries to key defenders like Rico Henry and Ben Mee, leaving manager Thomas Frank lamenting the absence of their entire back four from the previous season. Despite these setbacks, Brentford displayed flashes of brilliance, securing notable victories over rivals Chelsea and Fulham, showcasing their ability to rise to the occasion amidst adversity.

17 - Nottingham Forest

It was a season of struggle for Forest, compounded by a four-point deduction for breaching Premier League Profit & Sustainability Rules, prolonging their battle for survival until the final day. Following their return to the topflight in 2022-23, expectations were high for progression, but a staggering 20 defeats in 38 games proved to be a major setback. The dismissal of beloved manager Steve Cooper just before Christmas, amidst a run of one victory in 13 matches, further highlighted their woes. Portuguese tactician Nuno Espirito Santo was brought in as his replacement, bringing a marginal improvement as the team averaged 1.05 points per game in the subsequent 21 matches. 

18 - Luton Town

Luton faced an uphill battle in their first top-flight season in over three decades, and while they ultimately suffered relegation, Rob Edwards’s team earned admiration for their resilience and determination. Despite a discouraging start with four consecutive losses, Luton gradually found their rhythm, enjoying a promising spell of form around the turn of the year that ignited hopes of survival. However, injuries to key players like Albert Sambi Lokonga dealt significant blows to their campaign. Despite their valiant efforts and commitment to playing attacking football against formidable opponents, a dismal run of just one victory in 17 matches from early February sealed their fate. Nevertheless, with plans for a new stadium underway and the capable leadership of Edwards, Luton’s future appears promising.

19 - Burnley

Burnley’s return to the Premier League ended in disappointment as Vincent Kompany’s side faced relegation with one game remaining. Despite securing promotion with a record seven matches remaining the previous season, the transition to the top flight proved challenging. Nonetheless, Burnley showcased flashes of brilliance, particularly during a resilient stretch with just one defeat in eight matches between March and April. However, their hopes of survival were dashed after a crucial 2-1 loss to Tottenham in their penultimate game. Kompany’s commitment to restoring success for the club remains steadfast, as he assured fans of brighter days ahead. Yet, uncertainties loom over Kompany’s future with Burnley, with some questioning the effectiveness of his attacking style of football, which yielded success in the Championship but faltered in the Premier League.

20 - Burnley

It was a disastrous campaign for Sheffield United, marked by their dismal performance and eventual relegation back to the Championship with minimal resistance. The crushing 5-1 defeat against Newcastle United on April 27th served as the definitive blow, confirming their fate. The nadir came on May 4th when they became the first Premier League team to concede 100 goals in a single 38-game season. Managerial changes failed to alter their course, with Paul Heckingbottom being dismissed on December 5th. Despite the return of Chris Wilder, his impact was limited. However, it’s anticipated that Wilder will spearhead the rebuilding efforts at Bramall Lane in the upcoming seasons.
