TEAMtalk’s Premier League Quiz of the Season: The answers

On Christmas Eve, we set you the challenge of answering 20 rock-hard Premier League quiz, with questions on all 20  clubs. Here, as promised, are the answers.

After another difficult year for many of us in ways we couldn’t possibly once imagine, the one consistent in all our lives has at least been the football.

The year may have started with football continuing to be played behind closed doors. However, supporters began being allowed to make their return to stadiums, where they brought back the noise and the atmosphere to the Premier League.

And while it seems life may soon be about to take another step backwards, for those celebrating the holiday period, we send you season’s greetings and our best wishes to you and your loved ones.

So, without further ado, here are the answers to our Premier League Quiz of the Season.
