Season Summary

The 194th season of the A.F.L.C.S. began with the pre-season Premier Cup competition, which was won by Arsenal with a 2—1 win over Norwich City in the final. It is their seventh win of the trophy, drawing level with Manchester United for most wins in the tournament.

In the League, after a good start by Chelsea and Manchester United, Liverpool recovered from a 2—1 defeat at Crystal Palace to quickly become the in form team. Manchester United fell into a spell of poor form but Chelsea kept up the pressure on Liverpool until around the 16th matchday, after which they fell away as well, and by the halfway stage Liverpool had a 10-point lead over Arsenal, who had taken over in second place. In the second half of the season the Mersyside club did not look back, only dropping 7 points out of a possible 54 in the final 18 matches. They amassed an impressive total of 97 points and 124 goals, with a goal difference of +94. They won the title with 6 games left to go and finished 24 points ahead of runners-up Arsenal. It is their 11th A.F.L. title.

Arsenal crowned a decent season by finishing second and also winning the cup double with a 2—1 extra-time win against Watford in the final. Chelsea and Manchester United eventually finished poorly in 5th and 6th place, whilst West Ham and Leicester both performed well enough to finish 3rd and 4th and clinch places in next season's Euro League. Tottenham clinched the final Euro Cup place by finishing 7th in the table due to cup winners Asenal finishing above them in the table. At the bottom, Reading looked doomed for the drop but caught up with Burnley in the penaultimate match of the season. However, Reading lost their final match 1—0 at home to Leicester whilst a 1—1 draw at Newcastle gave Burnley the point that they needed to survive. Reading went down along with Southampton and Fulham.

In Division 1, Leeds took the title and will be accompanied back into the Premier by Everton, who clinched promotion with a draw at Preston on the final day of the season. In the play-offs, Bournemouth won after a goalless match 3—1 on penalties to return to the Premier for the first time since Season 183. At the bottom, Swansea, Doncaster and Wycombe dropped into to Division 2. In Division 2, West Brom returned to the second tier along with Peterborough United, whilst Fleetwood won promotion for the second season in a row after beating Hull City 3—2 in the play-off final after extra time. At the bottom, Sheffield Wednesday were themselves relegated for the second season in a row and find themsleves in the bottom division for the first time in a very long time. They went down with Northampton and Portsmouth. In Division 3, Wigan and Bolton took the two automatic promotion spots along with Harrogate Town, who beat Bradford City 2—0 in the play-off final to go into Division 2 for the first time in their history. At the bottom, Scunthorpe and Walsall finished in the bottom two positions and therefore dropped out of the League.
