The 2019–20 Premier League was the 28th season of the English Premier League since its establishment in 1992.
Manchester City were the defending champions for the second successive year, after picking up the domestic treble the previous season.
Liverpool won their first league title since 1990, the club's first of the Premier League era and 19th overall in England's top-flight.
The season was halted for over three months, following a decision on 13 March 2020 by the Premier League to suspend the league after a number of players and other club staff became ill due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The initial suspension, until 4 April, was then extended to mid-June. The season recommenced with two matches on 17 June, and a full round of matches played over the weekend of 19–22 June.
In 2019–20 the video assistant referee (VAR) review system was introduced. Changes to the laws affecting backpasses, penalties, handballs and substitutions were also introduced in 2019–20.
Upon resumption of the season, Liverpool soon clinched their long-awaited first Premier League title, doing so with seven matches to spare which was a new league record. The club once again went unbeaten at the home ground amassing a total of 99 points, two more than last term.
Manchester City's 17-point slip from the incredible standard they set in the 2018/19 season saw their stranglehold on the title ended.
After final day victories Manchester United and Chelsea joined the top two in securing Champions League qualification for the 2020/21 season.
During the season, Liverpool broke or tied several Premier League all-time records, achieving a record-equalling 18 consecutive wins before being defeated by Watford on 29 February. They have an ongoing record of 23 consecutive home wins and established the biggest lead in Premier League history when they took a 23-point lead of Manchester City.
