The 2017–18 Premier League will be the 26th season of the Premier League, the top English professional league for association football clubs, since its establishment in 1992. The season is scheduled to start on 12 August 2017 and finish on 13 May 2018.
Chelsea are the defending champions. Newcastle United, Brighton & Hove Albion and Huddersfield Town have entered as the promoted teams from the 2016-17 Championship.
The defending champions would fall short to Manchester City, their third title of the decade. City won the title on the last day of the season when 2nd-placed Chelsea lost to Newcastle and City won Liverpool. Manchester City wouldn't have secured the title without Gabriel Jesus though, who scored 29 goals, the most in the league this season.
Getting the other Champions League spots were Tottenham Hotspurs and Manchester United, who finished 3rd and 4th respectively. Liverpool finished fifth getting them a Europa League spot as well as newly promoted Newcastle who won the FA Cup, and, because Tottenham won the League Cup, 6th placed Everton also got a Europa League spot.
The division was so close at the bottom as the teams that got relegated all got relegated on the final day. Brighton were the only team who were promoted to go straight back down, finishing in 19th. Crystal Palace, 18th, and Swansea City, 20th, also went down.
