We combined a list of the top five unbelievable stats that defined the 2021/2022 Premier League season.
Who Conceded More Goals Than Relegated Burnley In The 2021/2022 Season?
As shocking as this stat might sound, it is actually the truth. The Red Devils; Manchester United ended the 2021/2022 Premier League season with a goal difference of 0. Manchester United had conceded a total of 57 goals at the end of the season, which was more than that of the recently relegated Burnley, who conceded 53 goals.
