With Manchester City and Liverpool achieving 98 and 97 points respectively in the 2018-19 season, many expected another close race for the title. Liverpool started the season in strong form with eight consecutive wins, while City suffered a shock 3-2 defeat to newly promoted Norwich City on 14 September. Liverpool's 3-1 win over City at Anfield in November opened up an 8-point lead at the top of the table and they maintained their lead for the remainder of the season. Mauricio Pochettino was sacked after a draw with Sheffield United and replaced with three time PL champion, Jose Mourinho, who won his first game in charge against West Ham United, 3-2.
On 25 October 2019, Leicester City broke the Premier League record - as well as the all-time English top-flight record - for the largest away league win and equalled the biggest ever Premier League win when they defeated Southampton 9-0 at St Mary's Stadium.
On 4 December 2019, Liverpool defeated their Merseyside rivals 5-2 and remained 8 points clear at the top of the table and 11 points clear of the champions, Manchester City.
On 12 January 2020, in a 6-1 victory over Aston Villa, Manchester City's Sergio Agüero broke Thierry Henry's Premier League record for most goals scored by an overseas player. In the same match, he also broke the record for most hat-tricks scored by a single player (12), previously held by Alan Shearer.
It was the first Premier League season to have a mid-season break in February. Three games of a normal round of ten were played on the weekend 8-9 February 2020, six games on the following weekend 14-17 February and the tenth game, Manchester City versus West Ham United, was rescheduled from 9 February to 19 February due to Storm Ciara. Games played on the same day had separate time slots such that the games did not overlap.
During the season, Liverpool broke or tied several Premier League all-time records. They achieved a record-equalling 18 consecutive wins before being defeated by Watford on 29 February. They also set records of 24 consecutive home wins, and a 25-point lead in the table at any time.
As a gesture of solidarity following the death of George Floyd, players' names on the back of their shirts were replaced with 'Black Lives Matter' for the first 12 matches of the restarted season as well as replacing the Premier League badge for the BLM's for the rest of the season. The Premier League also gave their support for any player who chooses to "take a knee" before or during matches. In addition, the NHS tribute badge was also used at all kits for the remainder of the season.
On 25 June 2020, Manchester City lost 2-1 to Chelsea at Stamford Bridge, mathematically confirming Liverpool as champions and marking their first league title in 30 years, and their first of the Premier League era. Upon winning the league, Liverpool claimed the unusual achievement of winning the Premier League earlier than any other team by games played (with seven games remaining) and later than any other team by date (the only team to clinch the title in the month of June). After Liverpool won the Premier League Manchester City and Aston Villa gave them a guard of honour at the Etihad Stadium and at Anfield in Liverpool's first home match as champions.
On 11 July 2020, Norwich City became the first team to be relegated to the Championship after a 4-0 defeat at home to West Ham United with three games remaining. On 26 July 2020, Bournemouth were the second team to be relegated to the Championship on the final day of the season, despite winning 3-1 away to Everton. Watford were the final team to be relegated to the Championship after losing 3-2 away to Arsenal on the same day. Both of these results were coupled with Aston Villa's 1-1 draw against West Ham United, ensuring Aston Villa safety in the Premier League for another season. Coincidentally, the three relegated teams were the same teams promoted to the Premier League for the 2015-16 season.
