The 2020–21 Premier League was the 29th season of the Premier League, the top English professional league for association football clubs since its establishment in 1992. Liverpool are the defending champions, having won their nineteenth league title the previous season, their first in the Premier League era. The season was initially scheduled to start on 8 August, but this was delayed until 12 September as a consequence of the postponement of the previous season's conclusion due to the coronavirus pandemic.

Manchester City secured a fifth Premier League title and seventh English league title overall with three matches to spare; it was also the club's third title in the last four seasons.

It was scheduled to be the second Premier League season to have a mid-season break in February, whereby five games of a normal round of ten would be played on one weekend and the remaining five the following weekend. However, due to the late start of the league and fixture congestion, the winter break was scrapped. It is also the second Premier League season to use VAR. As was the case at the end of the previous season – at least to start – there will be limited or no attendance from fans in the stadiums besides each team's staff and personnel. On 23 November 2020, it was announced that some fans would be allowed to return to stadiums in low-risk areas at the end of the national lockdown on 2 December 2020. The announcement of a third national lockdown on 4 January 2021, though, signalled a return to matches being played behind closed doors.

At the start of this season, as was the case at the end of the previous season, there was limited or no attendance at matches besides each team's staff and personnel. On 23 November 2020, it was announced that some fans would be allowed to return to stadiums in low-risk areas at the end of the second national lockdown on 2 December 2020. The announcement of a third national lockdown on 4 January 2021, though, signalled a return to matches being played behind closed doors. On 22 February 2021, Prime Minister Boris Johnson announced as the third step of recovery from the lockdown imposed on 4 January, that subject to certain criteria being met on vaccines, infection rates and new coronavirus variants, large football stadiums would be allowed to reopen on 17 May with a maximum of 10,000 spectators.

Teams

Twenty teams are competing in the league – the top seventeen teams from the previous season and the three teams promoted from the Championship. The promoted teams are Leeds United, West Bromwich Albion and Fulham, after respective top flight absences of sixteen, two and one year. They will replace Bournemouth, Watford (both teams relegated after five years in the top flight), and Norwich City (relegated after a year back in the top flight).

Rules for classification: 1st points; 2nd goal difference; 3rd number of goals scored.
(C) = Champion; (R) = Relegated; (P) = Promoted; (O) = Play-off winner; (A) = Advances to a further round; (Q) = Qualified to the phase of tournament

a. The fourth-placed team will play in the Europa League group stage instead of the Champions League group stage if Chelsea wins the 2020–21 UEFA Champions League, Arsenal or Manchester United win the 2020–21 UEFA Europa League, and both winners finish in fifth place or lower.
b. Since both 2020–21 FA Cup finalists (Leicester City and Chelsea) would currently qualify for European competition based on league position, the Europa League group stage berth awarded to the FA Cup winners would pass to the sixth-placed team.
c. Since 2020–21 EFL Cup winners Manchester City have qualified for European competition based on league position, the Europa Conference League berth awarded to the EFL Cup winners will transfer to the highest-placed Premier League team who have not already qualified for European competition, which is currently the seventh-placed team.
