The Premier League is the strongest championship in recent years. Since the 2016/2017 season (with the exception of last season), English clubs have regularly reached the European Cup finals. So, in 2017, Manchester United won the Europa League, being stronger than Ajax (2-0), and in 2018, Liverpool lost to Real Madrid (1-3) in the Champions League final. The 2018/2019 season in general turned out to be unique, because Chelsea and Arsenal fought for the title in the Europa League (the Blues won a big victory with a score of 4-1), and Liverpool won the Champions League, beating Tottenham with a score of 2-0.
Against the background of such achievements, last season can be considered a failure, only the Manchester teams showed a decent result: MU reached the semi-finals of the Europa League, and MS – to the 1/4 final of the Champions League. This season, the English giants have improved, and only Villarreal prevented making the European Cup finals purely English, beating Arsenal in the semi-finals of the Europa League.
On Saturday, May 29, at 18: 00, at the Dragau in Porto, Manchester City will face Chelsea in the next English Champions League final.
