3 things to look forward to during the last week of the Premier League
Ah, that cliché dialogue we hear as the curtain comes down on another Premier League season- what a brilliant season it has been!
Indeed. No one expected Manchester City to dominate proceedings in this fashion. No one anticipated Chelsea's fall from grace. No one predicted that the promoted teams will all do so well under pressure and fight on to avoid relegation.
And of course, the supreme rise of Mohammed Salah- a player who was once deemed not good enough for the big stage and who has taken Liverpool to another level almost single-handedly.
Managerial changes at Crystal Palace, Everton, West Ham and Southampton helped them turn the season around while Carlos Carvalhal, Paul Lambert and Darren Moore fell short of retaining Premier League status next season despite their good work.
All 20 teams will be in action at the same time this Sunday across as the season culminates and despite things pretty much wrapped up, we look at 3 things to look forward to in the Premier League this Sunday:
#3 City to reach the 100-point tally?
It really has been one of those freak seasons for City as they have given absolutely no chance to any of their adversaries- not one. And given their total domination, there are enough reasons to suspect if they can repeat the feat next season as well.
They have beaten the long-standing record of most points won in a season following their victory over Brighton midweek. The previous record was set by Chelsea in Mourinho's first season at the club in 2005 and stood at 95 points.
City's current tally of 97 points was aided by a record-breaking 31 wins this season and they are one victory away from reaching the 100-point mark, which would be quite an astonishing achievement given that the maximum possible points in a season is 114.
They travel to Southampton in a bid to achieve the same.
