How every Premier League season would have finished after gameweek 29: 1993-94

Given the current uncertainty over the resumption of the Premier League, Sports Mole takes a look at how the 1993-94 season would have ended after gameweek 29.

With the coronavirus pandemic having brought a halt to the Premier League campaign, Liverpool are yet to discover whether they will be provided with the chance to end their three-decade wait for a league title.

However, the majority of the 20 clubs in England's top flight face an anxious wait over their own positions, whether that be to do with European qualification or potential relegation to the Championship.

Naturally, the current global crisis has caught everyone off guard, resulting in frequent meetings being held between the powers-that-be at their respective organisations. However, it naturally raises the question of what would have happened in years gone by had the Premier League been ended after gameweek 29?

By the end of the 1993-94 campaign, Manchester United had successfully defended their crown with minimal fuss, finishing eight points clear of Blackburn Rovers and a further seven ahead of Newcastle United.

Even if the second ever Premier League had been concluded after gameweek 29, the finishing positions would have stayed the same by seven-point and 15-point margins respectively, highlighting United's dominance throughout the season as a whole.

There would not have been a single change regarding qualification for Europe, with Arsenal, Aston Villa and Chelsea earning their places in either the UEFA Cup or Cup Winners' Cup through their efforts away from the English football's top tier.

Following on from the trend in the upper echelons of the division, the same teams which featured in the bottom three after gameweek 29 were relegated once 42 matches had been played, the only difference being Oldham Athletic and Sheffield United trading 20th and 21st-placed respectively ahead of Swindon Town.

Ipswich Town were fortunate to avoid being sucked into the relegation zone, dropping from 12th to 19th having recorded just four points from their final 11 matches.

With regards to the mid-table positions, it was Wimbledon who made the most significant move, progressing from 11th place into sixth after putting together an outstanding 23-point haul from their closing 11 fixtures.
