For a league which counts on unpredictability as one of its main draws, the 2014/15 Premier League season was surprisingly easy to predict. From armchair pundits to ones in the Sky Sports studio, almost everyone backed Chelsea to win the title and Jose Mourinho’s men duly delivered. Defending Champions Manchester City were perhaps the only viable contenders but an ageing squad was exposed with Manuel Pellegrini unable to recreate the magic of last season.
The race for Champions League football was touted to be an interesting one but even that has been decided. Arsenal have had an excellent 2015 thus far but were too far off the pace to be realistic contenders. A further step behind is Manchester United who sealed their return to the Champions League. At the other end, QPR’s return to the Premier League was a short one while Burnley impressed under Sean Dyche but were simply not good enough to beat the drop. Hull occupy the last relegation spot, 2 points behind a Newcastle side in simply woeful form and as such will be the only talking point of real note heading into the final weekend.
Leicester provided the annual great escape in a stunning run of form. The only criticism that can be leveled at their remarkable turnaround is the timing of it. Surely there’s an unwritten rule somewhere stating that every great escape must culminate in 3 points on the final day of the season to stave off relegation?
