On Sunday evening, the Premier League season came to a close. It was a wildly unpredictable campaign at times, with Arsenal emerging as a surprise contender to win the title, and yet, in the end, Manchester City finished top of the pile. Again.

Pep Guardiola's magnificent squad of superstars played some beautiful football, creating goal after goal for the unstoppable Erling Haaland, but their third title in a row will have yet another asterisk placed beside it, with the club having been charged with more than 100 alleged breaches of the Premier League's financial regulations.

But Brighton were arguably the story of the season, with Roberto De Zerbi silencing the skeptics by leading the Seagulls into Europe for the first time in their history.

Sadly, though, another touching tale of over-achievement has come to an end, with Leicester, the club that stunned the football world by winning the title in 2016, being relegated alongside Leeds and Southampton.
