The 2010–11 Premier League (known as the Barclays Premier League for sponsorship reasons) was the 19th season of the Premier League since its establishment in 1992. The 2010–11 fixtures were released on 17 June 2010 at 09:00 BST.[2] The season began on 14 August 2010,[3] and ended on 22 May 2011. Chelsea were the defending champions.[4]

Manchester United secured the title with a 1–1 draw away to Blackburn Rovers on 14 May 2011.[5][6] This was their nineteenth English league title, breaking a tie with Liverpool which had stood since Manchester United won their eighteenth title in 2009.[7] Manchester United, Chelsea, Manchester City and Arsenal all secured a berth for the 2011–12 UEFA Champions League, while Tottenham Hotspur qualified for the 2011–12 UEFA Europa League via league position. At the bottom, West Ham United, Blackpool, and Birmingham City were relegated to the Championship.[8][9][10]

Rule changes[edit]

The Premier League introduced a cap on the number of players in a squad. From this season onwards, clubs had to declare a squad of no more than 25 players when the summer transfer window shuts, and then again at the end of the January transfer window. Players aged 21 and under could be selected without being registered in the 25.

Also being introduced this season was the "home grown players" rule, which aims to encourage the development of young footballers at Premier League clubs. The new rule required clubs to name at least eight players in their squad of 25 players that have been registered domestically for a minimum of three seasons prior to their 21st birthday.[11]

All of the Premier League teams submitted their 25-man squads on 1 September 2010 deadline.[12]

Teams[edit]

Twenty teams competed in the league – the top seventeen teams from the previous season and the three teams promoted from the Championship. The promoted teams were Newcastle United, West Bromwich Albion (both teams returning after season's absence) and Blackpool (returning after a thirty-nine year absence). This was also Blackpool's first season in the Premier League. They replaced Burnley, Hull City and Portsmouth, ending their top flight spells of one, two and seven years respectively.
