the championship final day!

EPIC TITLE RACE! After 30 games in 2020-21, just four points separated Norwich in top spot and Brentford in third, with second-placed Swansea and fourth-placed Watford also in a real race for the Champo title!

GAFFER DANIEL FARKE Even when Norwich got relegated last season, the Canaries chiefs stood by…

CURTIS JONES Liverpool The 20-year-old midfielder made his Champo League debut in the group stage against Ajax last October, and then scored his first-ever CL goal against the same side less than two months later! He became the third-youngest scorer for The Reds in the tourno and also managed two assists in his first campaign! JAMAL MUSIALA Bayern Munich Not many people knew about Musiala before this season! The ex-England youth international and former Chelsea academy product made his CL debut for Bayern in November and then became the youngest-ever German player to score in the competition against Lazio in February at just 17 years old! EDOUARD MENDY Chelsea The 29-year-old shot-stopper isn’t a wonderkid emerging on the scene, but the 2020-21 campaign is still his first in the Champo League! He kept seven clean sheets in his…

SOUTHAMPTON3-2 BURNLEY APRIL4 The New Zealand net-buste rreally didn't deserve to be on the losing side against Southampton! He fired home a penalty within 12 minutes – the 100th penalty of the 2020-21 season – and then used his strength and aerial ability to set up his strike partner Matej Vydra for the second.
