Premier League 2016-17 was an action packed one but so are all other seasons. So, what made this league different from its predecessors? Well, it was the all new tactics unleashed from the teams who departed from the conventional styles, attacking their opponent with the exclusive tactics, rendering them breathless and tactless. However, there were various other events and developments which were expected to be an instant hit with the fans but fizzled out. Let us review the season and recollect some of the most remarkable strategies, tactics, events and ข่าวฟุตบอล of this season.
Three Man defense – A lot of teams ditched the four man defense and went for the three man defense. Chelsea’s Conte went for three man defense and at some point of time it became almost impossible to match the aggressive advance of Marcos Alonso and Victor Moses. It was clear that three man defense was topping the chart of the tactics of the season with likes of Arsene Wenger playing the three man defense strategy.
Football on Friday Night – Wish of every fan is to chill out in a pub with friends and watch football match, celebrating every moment. However, it turned out that fans were busy with other things and they never really wished for football treats on Fridays. Viewer ratings were quite low and therefore the federation had no choice but to schedule the matches on other days and not populate Fridays.
Goals Per Game – The record of division holding the highest goals per game seemed to be dwarfing as the rate of goal per game during the premier league was mounting and fans were thrilled. However, towards the end of the season, the record remained untouched narrowly as average goals per game were 2.80, falling short of 0.01 from the record which was made in 2011-12 game.
