Why cant they just do it on who should have won morally or who had the best net spend etc?
We had the best net spend last year so net spend is no longer cool.
Istreeeee and go back to 2 points for a win should do it.
It means there’s no point in continuing trying to score once you get to 2-0.
Also means that if you get a rough decision off the officials in a game against a team close to you in the league it would hurt way more.
what about goal average?
Or goals scored from outside the box?
A change in the The Premier League rules for determining league position has been announced. Sadly different newspapers (e.g. Daily Mail) report this rule change differently.
The consensus of news in the media is that league position at the end of the 2019/20 season will be determined by (in order):
2. Goal difference.
3. Goals scored.
4. Head-to-head record (with away goals counting double in the event of a tie).
5. The result of a play-off game.
Point 4 is new and makes the chance of a play-off game at the end of the season less likely.
This rule change will be confirmed when the Premier League Handbook for 2019/20 is published.
I have updated the original post to reflect this confusion.
Total number of goals scored would have been looked at before the head to head, we scored 95 they scored 89 so it wouldn't have needed to go to head to head.
I know, I'm talking about a scenario where everything finished equal and it came down to head to head, then away goals would become the deciding factor because it was two draws.
You are both correct. It's decided in this order:
2. Goal difference
3. Goals scored
4. Head to head
Nothing in there about the "but it's our year" variation? I believe the Liverpool Echo are pushing hard for it's inclusion.
