Now in its 29th season, the Premier League is the biggest in the world - with the 2021/22 season set for the return of fans to stadiums. 

Manchester City are the title holders heading into the campaign, with a handful of teams tipped for success domestically this season. Norwich City, Watford and Brentford join the division again after promotion from the Championship - with the latter competing in the Premier League for the first time ever.

The 2021/22 season begins on August 13, 2021 and runs through until May 22, 2022.

FourFourTwo Staff

FourFourTwo was launched in 1994 on the back of a World Cup that England hadn’t even qualified for. It was an act of madness… but it somehow worked out. Our mission is to offer our intelligent, international audience access to the game’s biggest names, insightful analysis... and a bit of a giggle. We unashamedly love this game and we hope that our coverage reflects that.
