2020-21 Premier League location-map, with 2019-20 league table, incl. top 6 finishers from 2nd division +Attendances from 2019-20 + Seasons-in-1st-division & English Title-winners list



By Bill Turianski on the 7th of September 2020; twitter.com/billsportsmaps.

    2020-21 Premier League location-map, with 2019-20 league table, incl. top 6 finishers from 2nd division, with 2019-20 Attendances + Seasons-in-1st-division (current clubs) & All-time English Titles list.

The location-map is the same as before, but the 3 charts on the map page are all new. Because of the COVID pandemic, I have de-emphasised attendance data (for obvious reasons). So, where before I had listed teams by average attendance, I now have listed the teams by last season’s finish.

So the current [2020-21] Premier League clubs are listed by 2019-20 finish, in a modified table.
The modified table features five things: #(Rank in English Pyramid), Matches, Goal Difference, Points, and Average Attendance (from 2019-20 home league matches before 15 March). This modified table includes the 6 top finishers from the 2nd division last season (and that is where Rank in English Pyramid comes in). And that’s where you will find the three newly promoted clubs, shown with bright-green bars (automatic -promotion-winners, Leeds United and West Bromwich Albion; and the Championship Play-off winner, Fulham). The 3 teams relegated from the top flight last season are only listed on the modified table, and are not shown on the map, and are shown on the modified table with pale-red bars (relegated clubs were: Bournemouth, Watford, Norwich City). Also shown on the modified table but not shown on the map are the three top-6-finishers from last season’s 2nd tier who failed to win promotion (Brentford, Cardiff City, Swansea City).

Also shown in the modified table are the teams who qualified for Europe. Royal blue bars in the modified table indicate UEFA Champions League qualification (top 4 finishers: Liverpool, Manchester City, Chelsea, Manchester United). Pale-blue bars indicate UEFA Europa League qualification (5th- and 6th-place finishers, plus FA Cup winner: Leicester City, and Tottenham Hotspur, plus Arsenal).

The second chart shows All-time Seasons in the 1st division (Current clubs).
This chart shows 4 things: All-time Rank, Seasons in the 1st division, Consecutive Seasons in the 1st division, and 2020-21 Jersey. (Counting 2020-21, there have now been 122 seasons of 1st division football in England.) Illustrations of the Jersey-segments are all from the excellent Historical Football Kits site {historicalkits.co.uk}. Data from RSSSF at this page {rsssf.com/tablese/engalltime.html}.

The third chart simply shows the All-time English Titles list. (Football League titles from 1889 to 1992; Premier League titles from 1993 to 2020.)
This chart shows 3 things: Titles won, Last title won, and Most-recent season in 1st division (ie, Current, or otherwise). There have been 24 clubs that have won an English title; 15 of those clubs are currently in the top flight. The clubs that have won English titles but are not currently in the 1st division are: Sunderland, Sheffield Wednesday, Blackburn Rovers, Huddersfield Town, Derby County, Portsmouth, Preston North End, Nottingham Forest, and Ipswich Town.

Below are illustrations for 4 teams: reigning champions Liverpool, plus the 3 newly-promoted clubs.
