The top-flight of the English football league system is called the Premier League. It was founded in 1992 as the FA Premier League after the Football League First Division clubs decided to break away from the original English league that was founded in 1888.
The Premier League is the Football League with the most number of spectators in the world. The Premier League has seen 49 clubs take part so far. However, only six teams have won the league title and they are Manchester United, Chelsea, Arsenal, Manchester City, Blackburn Rovers and Leicester City.
Every year, the last 3 teams on the table are relegated to the English first division league and the top 3 teams from the first division are promoted to the Premier League.

Arsenal and Tottenham Hotspur
The rivalry of North London that involves the Gunners and the Lilywhites is all about the bragging rights and Arsenal had been dominant for close to two decades. Now Tottenham have emerged as the better team in North London but only time will tell if it will remain that way. Can Spurs stand the test of time or are we in for a Gunner resurgence?
Manchester United and Manchester City
It wasn’t that long ago that this was a derby that was heavily one-sided as evidenced by the fact that Sir Alex Ferguson dismissed their city rivals as ‘noisy neighbours’. But the noisy neighbours have seemingly taken over now and there has been a clear power shift in Manchester. But as we know, you can never count Manchester United out and with the two teams looking the strongest they have in years, this rivalry could very well be the mine that we tap a lot of entertainment out of in the years to come.
Liverpool vs Everton
Dubbed the ‘friendly derby’, the Merseysiders, however, have tried their very best to ensure it is anything but on the pitch. Don’t believe me, just look at how many red cards have been produced in this fixture over the years. Both teams are rich in history and this is one rivalry that divides the people of Merseyside for life.
Liverpool vs Manchester United
It’s all about the history and the legacy of two great clubs who have taken turns to dominate the country and occasionally, the European continent itself. It’s about as heated as rivalries get and the Mancunians and Merseysiders have no qualms about putting their nose to the grindstone when it comes to eking out a result for their team on the day.
Premier League is arguably the most entertaining league in Europe owing to its unpredictability and the unrelenting pace of the game. The top 6 clubs- Manchester United, Arsenal, Chelsea, Liverpool, Manchester City and Tottenham Hotspur are all teams that are capable of dominating the league and beating the best of opponents on their day.
But in the 2017/18 season, it has been a one team dominated league thanks to the absolute juggernaut that Pep Guardiola’s Manchester City have become. After steamrolling almost everybody in their path, the Cityzens are well and truly on their way to their 3rd Premier League crown.
The relegation battle is just as intense with the teams on the bottom half of the table being tightly packed in terms of points.
