The 2018–19 Premier League was the 27th premier league season. Manchester City won the title while Liverpool was runner-up. Wolverhampton Wanderers, Cardiff City and Fulham joined as the promoted clubs from the 2017–18 EFL Championship. They replaced West Bromwich Albion, Swansea City and Stoke City who were relegated to the 2018–19 EFL Championship. The season started on 11 August 2018 and finished on 19 May 2019.

This season had two aviation accidents that involved people from the Premier League. On 27 October 2018, Leicester City owner Vichai Srivaddhanaprabha was killed in a helicopter crash outside the King Power Stadium, shortly after a 1–1 home draw against West Ham United and then almost three months later, on 21 January 2019, Cardiff City player Emiliano Sala, who had already agreed a deal with Cardiff City following his record signing from Nantes, died on board a Piper PA-46 Malibu aircraft that crashed off Alderney while he was going to England for completing the medical formalities.

On 30 March 2019, Huddersfield Town were the first team to be relegated, after a 2–0 defeat at Crystal Palace. They were relegated with six games remaining. This made them the only second team to be relegated before the end of March in the history of premier league, the other one being Derby County who were relegated in 2007–08. On 2 April 2019, Fulham followed Huddersfield after a 4-1 defeat at Watford with five games remaining.
