June has been a month full of surprises and unexpected results for the Premier League. We present five of the biggest highlights from this last 26 matches played in June.
The waiting is over!
It’s official! Liverpool have gone down in the history of Premier League in 2019/20 season. The Reds have officially been announced champions on 25th June 2020 after Man City losing 2-1 to Chelsea. The team got themselves a well deserved 1st place with 23 points separating them from 2nd Man City before the start of 32nd game week.
A simple yet emphatic message from the boss…
‘This is for you.’ ❤️

It has been a hell of a ride for Liverpool this season. Jurgen Klopp’s side have had many tough fixtures so far but it’s their astonishing chemistry on the pitch that helped them pass through all the obstacles. It has been 30 years since Liverpool celebrated league win and it’s fair to say the waiting is finally over.
The fans, however, will need to wait a bit longer to see their favourite team lifting up this year’s trophy until last home game played against Chelsea.
Man Utd unbeaten in 15 matches
Red Devils have had their difficulties not only this season but in the last years. However, things look very promising for Man United with them being now unbeaten in the last 15 games after a 3-0 win against Brighton on 30th June. The team is sitting in 5th place in the Premier League and have a realistic chance to qualify to Champions League next season.
Ole Gunnar Solskjær has started with the lineup, which appears to be the strongest and most solid one. The fans had a pleasure to watch Fernandes and Pogba link-up from the first minutes which yet again translated into another great result for the team.

It was Mason Greenwood who defeated Mathew Ryan in goal first making it 1-0 in only 16 minutes of play for Man United. Statistics don’t lie and it was Red Devils who were predominating opposition from the get-go. We didn’t have to wait too long to see another goal in this thrilling Premier League clash. It was the fans’ favourite Bruno Fernandes who hit the net this time in 29th minute. The Portuguese scored yet another goal in 50th minute making it 3-0. The score hasn’t changed from that point out.
The second half looked way better for the hosts with them creating much more threat than in 1st half, but it didn’t seem enough for Man United’s defence. The Seagulls are now sitting in 15th place and are fearfully looking at the relegation zone.
Danny Ings with a doublet
Southampton have severally proven this season that they should not be by any chance underestimated. The team’s form has been off balance many times but it never stopped Danny Ings from providing very much needed goals for the Saints. The Englishman scored three times and assisted once since Premier League return in mid-June. After his another incredible performance against Watford, he moved into 2nd place in this season’s top scorers with the impressive total of 18 goals.
Another @IngsDanny masterclass 👌

Saints’ main man in front Danny Ings didn’t wait too long to score an opener against Watford. Will Smallbone, young Irish midfielder who started making his big steps in the first team, was the one who assisted the English striker in 16th minute. The second goal came from Ben Foster’s terrible pass which Danny Ings successfully cut and perfectly utilised the opportunity of making it 2-0 in 70th minute.
It would be a clean sheet If not unfortunate deflection from Jan Bednarek counted as own goal in 79th minute. Funnily enough, it took only 12 minutes for Southampton to score again, this time from perfectly taken free-kick byJames Ward-Prowse. The game ended 3-1.
Southampton are now sitting in 14th place with 7 points difference from 15th Brighton whilst Watford is on the edge of stepping into the relegation zone with only 1 point away from 18th Bournemouth in the Premier League.
It’s fair to say Phil Foden was one of the Man City’s brightest stars in June. Moreover, surprisingly Man City hasn’t lost a single game this season with the young midfielder in the game. The Englishman got only 25 minutes of regular time against Arsenal on 17th June and it appeared to be enough for him to score a goal making it 3-0.
His performance against The Gunners has been very solid, but it’s the game against Burnley in the Premier League that everyone was talking about.
It had to be…😏🌟

The score against Burnley has been opened on 22nd minute when Phil Foden seized the opportunity created by Bernardo Silva. Later on, it was incredibly in-form Riyad Mahrez who scored both goals in 43rd and 45+3 minute after successfully utilising a penalty.
Dominated in every aspect Burnley haven’t started their second half very promisingly. David Silva was the one this time scoring a goal making it 4-0 in 51st minute. Only 12 minutes later it was the main man Phil Foden who hit the net once again in the game. The score hasn’t changed from that point out.
Master vs Apprentice
It has been Mikel Arteta’s first confrontation as Arsenal manager against his former boss Pep Guardiola. Despite all the knowledge, the Spaniard absorbed during his three-year time as an assistant manager in Man City, there’s still a humongous room for improvement. The result hasn’t been very satisfying for The Gunners as the match ended 3-0 for better Citizens in the Premier League.
That's all from the Etihad.#MCIARS

The Gunners seemed to have broken a mirror before stepping into this one. Not only Granit Xhaka and Pablo Marí got injured in the first 25 minutes of the play, but also the team were down to 10 men after David Luiz received a red card in 49th minute which gave Man City opportunity to score a goal from a penalty. The match ended as an embarrassing 3-0 defeat as Arsenal made a poor return to Premier League action.
