The English Premier League – football’s cream of the crop
Name a tougher, more spectacular, more unpredictable and more balanced top-tier league football competition than the English Premier League. We’ll wait...
Last season was epic. Liverpool and Manchester City went head-to-head up until the very last Gameweek. The title battle was relentless and undoubtably one that will be remembered for ages. In the end, it was the Cityzens who came out on top, thanks to a 14-game winning run that shattered the Scouser’s dreams of lifting their first title in 29 years. Talk about a dry spell.
Premier League restart: everything you need to know
Save the date: Wednesday, June the 17th. After more than three months of no Premier League action, football fans worldwide will breathe a sigh of relief once matches resume in the 1st tier English football league. We’re in for a month and a half of fixture bonanza, with games taking place nearly every day. The season will end somewhere around July the 25th.
To ensure the safety of all those involved, all games will be subjected to extraordinary measures. First, no fans are to be allowed in the stadiums. Secondly, some high-profile matches are to be played on neutral venues. Lastly, it’s important to know that all the remaining games will start at the following UK times:
Fridays: 6pm, 8:15pm
Saturdays: 12:30pm, 3pm, 5:30pm, 7:45pm
Sundays: 12pm, 2pm, 4:15pm, 4:30pm, 7pm
Tuesdays, Wednesdays, Thursdays: 6pm, 8pm, 8:15pm
What’s at stake?
With nearly a quarter of the season left, only one thing seems to be certain: Liverpool is to be crowned Premier League winners for the first time in 30 years.
Manchester City also sits comfortably in 2nd place, a spot that guarantees them Champions League football – if they somehow manage to convince UEFA to remove their ban. And it’s precisely this Champions eligibility uncertainty that unravels a fierce battle for the remaining spots. Should City be denied access to this competition, the team that ends the season in 5th place may be given that spot. With six teams within six points of Manchester United, the current holders of that 5th position, we’re in for quite the battle. 3rd placed Leicester City, and 4th placed Chelsea will also need to be extra careful to keep their current ranks.
Who’s going down?
The last three teams in the table are to be relegated to the Championship. Currently, that trio consists of Norwich (20th), Aston Villa (19th), and Bournemouth (18th).
However, Bournemouth is tied on points with both Watford and West Ham, while 15th placed Brighton sit on a very narrow two-point lead. The fight to avoid relegation will go down to the wire as well.
What does the 2019/2020 season have in store?
City and Liverpool seem the ones to beat and it’ll be hard for teams like Tottenham, Manchester United or Arsenal to bridge the gap between that separates them from the first two spots of the league table.
Meanwhile, Chelsea – now under the leadership of club legend Frank Lampard – is going through a reconstruction period and can only hope for a top 6 at most. But it won’t be easy at all, with teams such as Everton, West Ham, Leicester or Wolverhampton breathing down their neck.
Newly promoted Norwich, Sheffield United, and Aston Villa will be hoping to avoid the drop and establish themselves in England’s top-tier competition.
It’s all to play for in the arena of England’s footballing titans.
The problem with most Premier League streaming options
Being the most sought-after football league in the world, it’s no wonder fans have a lot of options to watch the matches. But this doesn’t mean that they don’t have limitations. For example, supporters in the UK must contend with some pretty harsh restrictions because Sky Sports and BT split their live broadcasting rights.
And if you want to watch EPL matches in the US using NBC’s Premier League pass, you’ll only be able to see 140 of the 380 games live. To see the rest, you’ll need to wait for the replays.
So, what’s the alternative?
Where to watch or stream matches for free
The Premier League comeback is set to feature a set of eagerly awaited free streaming possibilities. First, as part of an agreement with the UK government, Sky Sports will show 25 matches on free-to-air UK TV.
The other novelty is that, for the first time ever, BBC will televise 4 games for the remainder of the season. If you’re not a UK citizen, you can use CyberGhost VPN to obtain access to Sky Sport’s streaming platform by connecting to a UK-based VPN server.
Where to watch all the Premier League matches live online
Eurosport Player is a live and on-demand streaming platform that streams all the English Premier League matches and gives you total control over what you want to see. Plus, it’s also more than three times cheaper than any other alternative.
The catch? The service is only available if you reside in Europe or the European commonwealth.
Don’t worry, though. With CyberGhost VPN, these types of geo-restrictions can easily be overridden.
Stream all Premier League games live on Eurosport Player with CyberGhost VPN
CyberGhost VPN acts as your all-access pass to everything the Internet has to offer. A VPN service works by switching your real geographical address with another one of your choosing.

So even though you’re from the US, by connecting to a VPN server from anywhere in Europe, you’ll unblock websites and streaming services such as Eurosport Player.
And here’s a pro tip for you. Eurosport has different pricing plans for different countries. To take advantage of the cheapest plan available (€5.99/mo or €24.99/year) connect to one of our VPN servers from Romania.

This way, you can always keep in touch with the action on-the-go by watching the games live on your tablet or mobile device – be it an iPhone or an Android.
