Rules of the EPL.
The Premier League (referred to as EPL) is the top and most competitive football league in England. There are 20 teams, which play each other teams twice, once at their home field and one at their respective opponents’. Starting from August and ending in May, they brawl through the winter break and nothing will stop them from battling it out, except for the one-week international break where the players will go back to their respective national teams to fulfill their duty.
Point and standing system.
Each team gets 3 points for a win, 1 point for a draw, and none for a loss and is placed on the standing tables for their points. What happens when 2 teams have the same score?? In that case, the standings will be decided based on scoring difference, the goal scored, and their Head to Head record and if that is also tied, they will have to play a final play-off match, which is yet to happen in the Premier League.

Explain the EPL tables’ Acronyms:
- GF: Goal for = Goal scored
- GA: Goal against = Goal conceded
- GD: Goal different = Different between Goal For and Goal Against (+ means they score more than being scored/ - means they got scored more than the score).
The reward for the Champion:
The immediate winner will receive £150 million, not to mention other financial benefits from an advertisement or the transfer market. The prize money is taken from TV revenue
Why is the league so popular?
You might be asking if a team is having such a good season, doesn’t that mean the champion is determined before the season even ends? Since they are so far ahead in the championship race and mathematically speaking the rest have no chance whatsoever to catch up to them?
This has happened many times in the past, for example, Liverpool won the league with 7 games remaining, Man Utd won the 00/01 season with 5 games left. But there is even a more exciting race to witness. Since the bottom 3 clubs will be relegated from EPL to make space for the 3 coming from the English Football League, which means they will miss out on A LOT OF financial benefits. So the last few matches of the season are a literal fight or flight situation.
Either you stay in the league and receive an insane amount of benefits or you get relegated to the EFL will very likely result in a financial crisis.
Watching the bottom 5 teams fighting for their chance is a thrilling experience, plus sometimes the supposed bottom teams can pull off a miracle run, such as the Leicester city jaw-dropping 15/16 season where they defied the 5000 to 1 odds from bookmaker to eventually reign champion.
Eric Cantona's Justice Delivery: During a match against Crystal Place in the 1995 season. A hooligan though he can get away with racist remarks regarding Catona’s birthplace when he was leaving the field after receiving a red card, until “King Eric'' fixed his attitude and probably his mouth structure with a Kung Fu Kick and a massively underrated roundhouse kick right after. You read that right, Eric Catona lunged himself at a racist hooligan and straight-up Kungfu kicked him in the face, resulting in a 9 months ban, and a Crystal Palace fan got killed 6 months after.
Luis “maybe a vampire” Suarez: Suarez has an undeniable talent for the ball, that’s for sure. But during a match against Chelsea, he took a bite from Branislav Ivanovic, nobody at the time, on the field or through the TV knew exactly what happened. But a replay later unveiled the situation and Thierry Henry’s lighting fast goal: When you score a goal so good, the clubs built a statue of you to immortalize it, everybody knows you have made it. Henry’s goal against the Spurs means something much more, beating your city's long-time arch-rival sure is euphoric, but “Fergie Time”: Man Utd is notorious for coming back from butt-clenching games with a little bit too much injury time from the referees. The phrase referring to this phenomenon is “Fergie Time”, coming from the legendary manager Sir Alex Ferguson, who admitted to putting pressure on the referees following his retirement.
Beckham’s goal from across the field: The now-famous David Beckham's most memorable goal is probably from his younger day at the Red Devil’s. Beckham- who is 21 at the time scored this against Wimbledon.
The Gunner’s invincibles season 03/04: Led by Arsene “The Professor” Wenger, who redefined the coaching style by introducing a new diet, training, and fitness regime.

The 03/04 Arsenal dominated the English Premier League with its seemingly unstoppable attacking power with Henry, Pires, Bergkamp trio, and a reliable defense containing Cole, Campbell, Toure.
