THE PREMIER LEAGUE 2021/22 season ended in dramatic fashion with Manchester City pipping Liverpool to the title.
But the 20 Premier League clubs are about to do it all over again as we countdown the days until the new season which has a slightly different look.
The Premier League starts next season in LESS than two weeks – on the weekend of August 6, 2022.
