Who wins the Championship 2019/2020?
Who will win the 2019/20 EFL Championship?
The 2019/20 EFL Championship was halted due to the Coronavirus pandemic with each team in the division having played 37 games. This left many question marks over how the season would be completed and whether or not there would be a winner crowned. However, the EFL has announced that the league will be completed with a resume date being set for the 20th of June.
At the top of the table, Leeds United are in pole position to win the league and are sitting on 71 points. They’ve won 21 games out this season and look very strong under their experienced manager Marcelo Bielsa. Leeds United haven’t been in the Premier League since 2004 and their fans will be desperate to get over the line and win this season’s Championship title having come so close over the past few years.
Second placed West Bromwich Albion sit only 1 point behind Leeds United on 70 points with 19 wins from 37 matches. Despite being behind Leeds on points, West Bromwich Albion has a better goal difference than Leeds which could be vital in the final league standings. Manager Slaven Bilić has built a good team and they’ll believe they can push Leeds United all the way until the end of the season.
Fulham are in third place with 64 points and 18 wins from 37 games, they also have the league’s top scorer in Aleksandar Mitrović who was on 23 goals before the season was halted. Their manager is former player Scott Parker and will hope to motivate his players in order to push for the title.
Brentford FC have the best goal difference in the league with +31 and sit in fourth place on 60 points. Their captain Pontus Jansson is a Swedish international and has enough experience to help guide the team to the title. Nottingham Forest are also on 60 points alongside Brentford FC, however, have a much worse goal difference with +10. If they are to win the league, they’ll need an excellent finish to the season.
