Football Association Premier League Results 2020-21 [Reference: 2]


22 Republic of Ureland players and 5 Northern Ireland players were on the squads of the 20 FA Premier League Clubs for 2020-21. 16 of those ROI players had made a first team appearance and 4 of the NI players had done so by the end of October (week 6). Nine of the Irish players had scored a goal with Sheffield United’s Callum Robinson having scored twice and two of the Northern Irish players having scored a goal.

There was an unusual look to the FA Premier League Table at the end of October 2020, with Everton, Aston Villa and Leicster among the pacesetters. Only Liverpool and Spurs of the Big 6 were challengers after the sixth round of matches, and of the others only Chelsea managed to squeak into the top half of the table in 10th place. Arsenal (11th), Manchester City (13th) and Manchester United (15th) were all languishing in the bottom half of the table.

Perhaps it was the absence of spectators due to the COVID-19 Pandemic, but there was an unusual amount of goals being scored, with an incredible Super Sunday Weekend at the beginning of October in Week 4 as Aston Villa knocked 7 past a stunned Liverpool in a 7-2 win (it could have been 10 or more) and Spurs trounced Manchester United 6-1 at Old Trafford.

Villa’s sole defeat came at the hands of fellow early title challengers Leeds (0-3 at Villa Park in Birmingham), while Liverpool FC were in second, with four wins in six matches, behind Everton in second place. Spurs made up the top six. At the other end of the table West Brom, Burnley, Sheffield United and Fulham were all struggling without a win.
