Liverpool scored 97 points in the 2018-19 season but finished second to Pep Guardiola’s Manchester City club by only one point. Liverpool started the next season with breakneck speed, winning their first eight games in a row, establishing a new club record for the best start to a league campaign. They concluded the season with 32 victories and 99 points, finishing 18 points clear of second place.

In that year, Liverpool’s famed front three of Mohamed Salah, Sadio Mane, and Roberto Firmino were on fire. They scored 46 goals and provided 27 assists in the 2019–20 Premier League season. With 13 clean sheets and a strong defensive base under their belts, Alisson and Virgin van Dijk enjoyed fantastic seasons at the back. In high-tempo football, Jurgen Klopp’s Reds were unstoppable, and their counter-press was creating havoc in the Premier League. Having won the Club World Cup and the UEFA Champions League the year before, the 2019–20 season was one of Klopp’s most successful Liverpool teams.

When Jose Mourinho signed with Chelsea in the summer of 2004, he famously labeled himself “The Special One.” As the next manager to contend for the Premier League crown, he was hailed after winning the Champions League with Porto the previous season. The Chelsea club surpassed several records and won the Premier League with a then-record 95 points thanks to the Portuguese’s outstanding performance. The basis of Chelsea’s championship victory was their outstanding defence. Throughout the entire season, they gave up just 15 goals, setting a record that is unlikely to be surpassed. During that season, they also won the League Cup, establishing themselves as a new challenger to Manchester United. They won the league the following season as well.

Manchester City’s 2017-18 team, dubbed the “Centurions,” will go down in history as the first to earn 100 points in the Premier League era. Their season was one of the most dominant in the history of the Premier League. City won the Premier League championship by 19 points over local rivals Manchester United, thanks to manager Pep Guardiola’s direction. The attacking potency of City was a crucial component in their victory that season. With 106 goals in a single season, City set a Premier League record. Sergio Aguero, Raheem Sterling, and Leroy Sane, the team’s attacking trio, were instrumental in this, scoring 49 goals and giving 36 assists. Overall, Manchester City’s 2017–18 season was a monument to Pep Guardiola’s tactical brilliance, the caliber of the squad’s players, and their ability to dominate the Premier League like no other side before them.

Arsenal’s 2003–04 season is largely recognized as one of the best in English football history. The club went on to be renowned as ‘The Invincibles’ after winning the Premier League title without losing a single game under manager Arsene Wenger. Their record of going the full season unblemished is a stunning accomplishment that has not been matched since. Thierry Henry, who scored 30 goals in the league, led their assault. Henry is perhaps the finest player in league history and was the lynchpin for Arsene Wenger. Dennis Bergkamp and Robert Pires, who dominated Premier League defences all season, were also part of the assault. The team’s record of being undefeated for a complete Premier League season has not been repeated since, and it is part of Arsene Wenger’s tremendous legacy in English football.

The all-conquering Manchester United side of 1998–99, which won the Premier League, FA Cup, and Champions League, is unquestionably England’s best team. Sir Alex Ferguson’s Red Devils have shown remarkable tenacity and passion to overcome adversity and win. The Champions League final against Bayern Munich epitomized their never-say-die spirit. United trailed 1-0 in the 90th minute but scored two late goals to win the final and clinch the historic treble. The team’s backbone was the class of 92′ (United’s youth academy products), which included David Beckham, Ryan Giggs, Paul Scholes, and Gary Neville. Andy Cole and Dwight Yorke were the offensive force, with Roy Keane at the heart of their midfield, making them a truly all-time great side. The treble winners are unquestionably the crown jewels of English football.
