The English Premier League is undoubtedly the most competitive football league in the world. Many of the world’s best squads are part of this prestigious tournament, and that is the reason why the EPL is the most-watched club football competition in the world.
Throughout the years, we've been able to witness numerous legendary teams on the pitch, and they were able to shock us with their superiority. That is exactly the topic that we wanted to discuss in this article. Below, we’ve listed some of the best teams in EPL history, so without any further ado, let’s check out the details.
The 2003/2004 Arsenal squad was genuinely legendary. You had players such as Jens Lehmann, Thierry Henry, Dennis Berkgamp, Patrick Vieira, Freddie Ljungberg, Robert Pires and Cesc Fabregas. This team managed to do the impossible – win the Premier League without suffering any defeats.
That marked the first time a PL team managed to do so in the 38-game format and the second overall (Preston North End won it in 1889 on a 22-game season). That season, Arsenal finished at the top of the table with 26 wins and 12 draws, which totalled 90 points. Chelsea was a runner-up with 79 points.
To this day, the 2017/2018 Manchester City team remains the only team in history to ever reach the 100-point mark in a single season. City were absolutely indestructible this season. They made it clear that they will win the Premier League title in the early stages, and even after the mathematical chances of them dropping down to second place were 0, they continued to demolish opponents.
In the end, City ended with 100 points at the top of the table, with 32 wins, four draws and just two losses. Manchester United was the runner-up with 81 points.
There’s no denying the fact that the Liverpool-Manchester City rivalry in the late 2010s and early 2020s is one of the best in PL history. After Manchester City had the legendary 2017/2018 season and won the PL again in 2018/2019, it was time for Liverpool to hit back, and that is exactly what they did.
The 2019/2020 Liverpool squad was undoubtedly the best in the team’s history and arguably one of the best in PL history. They managed to win the title with the second-highest point tally in history – 99. Liverpool won 32 games, drawn 3 and lost 3.
Finally, we are going to close things off with a somewhat nerve-wracking season in 1998/1999 that ended up with Manchester United as the winner. After a highly competitive season, United managed to lock in the first spot with 79 points, while Arsenal trailed to the second with 78 points.
The Red Devils recorded 22 wins, 13 draws and just 3 losses that season. To make things even more electrifying, the same team competed in the 1999 Champions League final against Bayern. In this legendary game, United managed to win the game 2-1, even though they were losing until the 90th minute.
