How every Premier League season would have finished after gameweek 29: 2018-19

:Headline: How every Premier League season would have finished after gameweek 29: 2018-19:
Given the current uncertainty over the resumption of the Premier League, Sports Mole looks at how the 2018-19 season would have ended after gameweek 29.

Sport in Britain has been given the green light to resume in June, but Premier League clubs are unable to agree on how the remaining 92 fixtures of the season should be played out.

The division has been on hold since early March and there is still the possibility of the campaign being declared null and void, although that is considered the worst-case scenario.

Representatives from all 20 top-flight clubs met via a video conference call on Monday, with the latest lockdown regulations at least providing some hope of a return to action next month.

As the uncertainty over a possible restart continues, Sports Mole takes a closer look at how previous seasons would have been affected by an early end to the season.

Here, we focus on the 2018-19 campaign, which saw Manchester City pip Liverpool in a thrilling title battle to retain their crown.


City were one point ahead of Liverpool after gameweek 29 and maintained that gap by winning each of their remaining matches, before going on to beat Watford in the FA Cup final.

Nothing would have changed in that regard, then, but Manchester United could have done with the season finishing prematurely as they slipped out of the top four.

The Red Devils occupied the final Champions League qualifying spot with nine game to go, but just two wins from those fixtures saw them finish in sixth.

Chelsea were the team to capitalise thanks to a strong conclusion to 2018-19 that saw them move from sixth to third over the final two months.

Tottenham Hotspur held on to fourth place, meanwhile, having previously occupied third after gameweek 29, with their focus very much on the Champions League.

The final Champions League spot was Arsenal's for the taking with five games to go, only to hit a poor run of form that saw them finish one point behind their North London rivals.

Elsewhere, Wolverhampton Wanderers maintained their position of seventh to qualify for the Europa League in their first campaign back in the top flight, while Everton and Leicester City finished strongly to move into eighth and ninth respectively.

Watford were level on points with Wolves in the Europa League qualifying spot after 29 matches, but a poor run of form to see out the season - including a heavy loss to Man City in the FA Cup final - saw them finish 11th, seven points behind Wanderers.

At the bottom end of the table, the bottom three remained as it was over the final nine gameweeks as Huddersfield Town, Fulham and Cardiff City dropped down to the Championship.

Brighton & Hove Albion were very nearly sucked into the dropzone, with the Seagulls taking just six points from their last nine games to finish two points above 18th-placed Cardiff. body check tags ::
