For the fourth successive year, Outside of the Boot recognises the individuals who stood above & beyond the rest in their respective leagues. With Europe’s top five leagues the focus of our End of Season Awards, we pick out the best players across their respective positions, the best manager, the exceptional Talent Radar young player, and ofcourse the sole man standing above the rest.
Antonio Conte’s Chelsea recovered after the tumultuous season that was the 2015-16 campaign, to dominate their way to the top. Pochettinho’s Spurs once again proved to be the primary challengers, becoming the most consistent Premier League side over the course of the two seasons. The rest of the ‘big’ sides struggled for consistency while defending champions Leicester City recovered from relegation trouble in the first half of the season to a mid-table finish.
