The 2018–19 Premier League is the 27th season of the Premier League, the top English professional league for association football clubs, since its establishment in 1992. The season started on 10 August 2018 and is scheduled to finish on 12 May 2019.[2][3] Fixtures for the 2018–19 season were announced on 14 June 2018.[4]

Manchester City are the defending champions. Wolverhampton Wanderers, Cardiff City and Fulham joined as the promoted clubs from the 2017–18 EFL Championship. They replaced West Bromwich Albion, Swansea City and Stoke City who were relegated to the 2018–19 EFL Championship.

The season saw the occurrence of two aviation incidents involving Premier League personnel. On 27 October 2018, Leicester City owner Vichai Srivaddhanaprabha was killed in a helicopter crash outside the King Power Stadium, shortly after a 1–1 home draw against West Ham United. Almost three months later, on 21 January 2019, Cardiff City player Emiliano Sala, en route to join the club following his record signing from Nantes, died on board a Piper PA-46 Malibu aircraft that crashed off Alderney.[5]

Huddersfield Town were the first team to be relegated, following their 2–0 defeat at Crystal Palace on 30 March 2019, coinciding with victories for Burnley and Southampton. They were relegated with six games remaining. This made Huddersfield the second team to be relegated before March ended, following Derby County in 2007–08. Fulham joined them after a 4–1 defeat at Watford on 2 April, relegated with five games remaining.

The fastest goal in Premier League history was scored this season on 23 April by Shane Long in a 1–1 draw between his side Southampton and Watford with 7.69 seconds.[6][7]

Teams[edit]

Twenty teams compete in the league – the top seventeen teams from the previous season and the three teams promoted from the Championship. The promoted teams are Wolverhampton Wanderers (returning to the top flight after a six-year absence), Cardiff City and Fulham (both teams returning after a four-year absence). They replaced Swansea City, Stoke City and West Bromwich Albion, ending their top flight spells of seven, ten and eight years respectively.

  1. ^ Tottenham Hotspur were due to play their first three home games at Wembley due to the rebuilding of their own stadium,[9][10] but delays in the construction process meant Tottenham did not play their first match there until 3 April 2019.[11][12][13]
  2. ^ Capacity was restricted to 51,000 between December and 10 February,[14][15] though they hosted Manchester United on 13 January at full capacity.[16] They also hosted Arsenal on 2 March with full capacity.[17]

Rules for classification: 1) Points; 2) Goal difference; 3) Goals scored; 4) Play-offs (only if needed to decide champion, teams for relegation or teams for UEFA competitions).
(Q) Qualified to the phase indicated; (R) Relegated; (X) Assured of at least Europa League, but may still qualify for Champions League.
Notes:
  1. ^ The winners of the 2018–19 EFL Cup earn a berth in the Europa League second qualifying round. However, since the winners of that tournament (Manchester City) have qualified for the Champions League due to their league position, the berth given to the EFL Cup winners would pass to the best team in the league that has not already qualified for European competition (the sixth-placed team).
