Leeds United ran away with the EFL Championship title last season with 93 points, ten more than second-place West Brom. Brentford, Fulham, Cardiff and Swansea entered the four-team playoff with Fulham coming out on top in a 2-1 win over Brentford in the promotion playoff final.

Having just barely dodged relegation last season with 35 points and finishing 17th, Aston Villa are among the favorites to be relegated this year.

Fulham is returning to the EPL after just one season in the Championship and will be hoping for a better result this time. The 2018/19 season saw them finish 19th with just 26 points.
