The Premier League is back! After just a short break the 2020/21 English Premier League kicks-off this weekend and there’s plenty of questions to be answered in what could be one the most dramatic seasons yet.

After 30 years in the making, it’s time to see how Liverpool go as the hunted. Reds fans have barely had time to finish partying before the focus shifts to defending a crown they have coveted for so long.

The likes of Man United, Chelsea, Arsenal, Spurs and Manchester City are some of the ambitious challengers burnt by recent underachievement or disappointment and re-fuelled for a new campaign.  The chasing pack has not stood by idly, and it means, once again, this is a Premier League campaign full of intrigue and delicious uncertainty.

Gaze down the Premier League table and there’s clear groups that make for compelling competition this term.  The ‘Big Six’ was broken up this year by Leicester, Wolverhampton and Sheffield United but both north London clubs, although still well short of the heights their fans must pine for, look much healthier going into the new season. Can an outsider continue to infiltrate that Big Six hierarchy, that question remains unanswered?

Then, there’s Leeds. The hype ahead of this weekend’s blockbuster with Liverpool is a reminder of the stature of the club, despite the extraordinary length of their absence. A team that holds a spot in the hearts of many Australian football fans is back after 16 years away, with many experts tipping big things this season. Check out an Optus Sport Original on the rise and fall of Leeds United here.
