The 2022/23 Premier League season is over and we can all look forward to a few weeks without Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp needlessly berating match officials.
Manchester City won the title for the fifth time in six seasons, although financial fraud charges levelled against the club have put a stain on their achievement.
Manchester United and Newcastle United completed the top four to box off the Champions League qualification places.
This left Klopp and co facing the prospect of Thursday nights in the Europa League. It is fair to say this didn’t go down too well with Mohamed Salah.
By contrast, Brighton & Hove Albion will embrace their venture into UEFA’s second-tier competition after qualifying for Europe for the first time.
Aston Villa claimed the Europa Conference League place, leaving Tottenham Hotspur with plenty of spare time to kill next season.
Brentford defied expectations to finish in the top half, while newly-promoted Fulham, Bournemouth and Nottingham Forest all avoided an immediate return to the Championship.
Chelsea were undoubtedly the biggest underachievers, with their £600 million outlay on new players helping them reach the lofty heights of 12th in the table.
Southampton, Leeds United and Leicester City waved goodbye to the Premier League and can now look forward to visiting exotic destinations such as Hull and Rotherham next term.
They will be replaced by Burnley, Sheffield United and Luton Town, who will be eager to hang onto their newly-earned status.
