There was no place in the top five for the Leicester team that defied 5000/1 pre-season odds by miraculously storming to the league title in 2015-16. Claudio Ranieri’s side were so dominant that they finished 10 points above second-place Arsenal.
In seventh was another Man City team – the 2018-19 title-winning side who became the first group of players to win consecutive Premier Leagues since close rivals United did in 2009. Pep Guardiola’s side have now won four of the last five league titles and are favourites for yet another come May 2023.
Jose Mourinho’s first Chelsea team – in 2004-05 – came eighth in the vote. The Portuguese breezed the top-flight in his first season and went on to win another the year after. However, Chelsea would not win another Premier League for four years.
The only Blackburn team to win the Premier League was voted ninth, with Alan Shearer and Chris Sutton forming an excellent strike partnership. Antonio Conte’s title-winning Chelsea team of 2016-17 made up the top 10.
