Premier League 2015 (2014-15)

Premier League, 2015 (2014-15)

The 2014-15 Barclays Premier League was the 23rd season in the competition's history.
Chelsea led from start to finish and clinched their fourth Premier League title with three games to play.
Having had an identical record on New Year's Day, Jose Mourinho's Blues finished eight points clear of Manchester City in second position.

Arsenal and Manchester United completed the top four and the UEFA Champions League places.
With Arsenal winning the FA Cup, Tottenham Hotspur, Liverpool and Southampton gained qualification for the UEFA Europa League because of their league position while West Ham United also qualified due to an English club earning an extra place via UEFA's Fair Play League.

Leicester City became only the third team to be bottom-at-Christmas that went on to avoid relegation.
Inspired by manager Nigel Pearson, the Foxes won seven of their last nine games to condemn Hull City, Burnley and Queens Park Rangers to a return to the Football League.

Jose Mourinho was named Premier League Manager of the Year for the third time.

Eden Hazard became the second Chelsea player to win the Premier League Player of the Season award. The Belgian playmaker was also the second Blue to win the PFA equivalent.

He completed the hat-trick by being named the third Chelsea player to win the Football Writers' Footballer of the Year award.

Manchester City's Sergio Aguero was the Golden Boot winner with 26 goals.
