Unforgettable Photos: The Best of the Premier League Season 2018-19 | Soccer

O On an average weekend, The Guardian receives about 12,000 photos of Premier League matches through its staff, agencies and photographers. That's almost half a million pictures per season. Some catch extraordinary joy and desperation; some bear witness to decisive moments in the title race; some owe their creativity to the men and women behind the glasses; and some, such as this one from August, show the rare but always amusing sight of a referee who is almost hit by a ball just as Tottenham's Ben Davies shoots at Fulham.

The worst picture of the season came from Wembley in September, when Tottenham's Jan Vertonghen accidentally stalked Liverpool's Roberto Firmino. As an image processor, we may be exposed to violence and bodily injury to the image wires, but this shot had a particularly twitching. Fortunately, the Brazilian managed to escape without serious injury and celebrated his late winner against Paris Saint-Germain with an eye patch a few days later in the group stage of the Champions League. In September, Sir Alex Ferguson received a standing ovation at Old Trafford after returning to the club in May following an emergency brain operation. United finished the month in tenth place with 10 points from the first seven games – nine points behind the first setters Manchester City and Liverpool.

The first meeting of the two best teams in the league was a close affair, with Manchester City's Riyad Mahrez missing a last-minute penalty. He shot over the crossbar – his fifth mistake in eight penalties. Leicester City Chairman Vichai Srivaddhanaprabha also died in October, whose helicopter crashed on leaving King Power Stadium after Leicester's match with West Ham and killed all five people aboard. The flowery honors at the stadium reflect the deep affection that Leicester's supporters felt for the man who contributed to her title success in 2016. My favorite picture of the month was Stamford Bridge, where Manchester United's coach, José Mourinho, had to hold back. After a loud goalkeeping, he started with a colleague in the back room of Chelsea. It's not so much Mourinho's aggression that I like. Rather, it is the panicky guy who is in the foreground on the radio. I have no idea who he is or what he says, but in my mind he sends a radio to assist.

In November, Tottenham celebrated victory in Wembley and Manchester City in the first Manchester derby of the season. It was also a miracle when Huddersfield won at John Smith's Stadium against Fulham and scored the first home goal of the season. The best picture taken that day is, in my opinion, the picture below – the silhouette of a lonely man wandering with the cigarette in his hand against the light of a distant spotlight. The floodlit old school seems to fill the shot with nostalgia – it reminds me that I came home from a winter festival in my youth.

December was a month of abuse. First, a Tottenham fan threw a banana on the pitch after Arsenal's Gabonese striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang scored in the derby against Spurs in northern London. Then, later that week, Raheem Sterling was kicked out of Manchester City by a group of Chelsea fans after defeating in a corner of a barrage of insults. Sterling reacted calmly, as he appreciated, and the incident sparked the much needed debate on how to stop abusive behavior and racism in football. The best action photos of the month came in Anfield, in the middle of the pandemonium of Liverpool's last win against Everton. Substitute Divock Origi scored in the 96th minute following Jordan Pickford's mistake, and Liverpool's relief was perfectly distilled in the following shot (with Virgil Van Dijk) through the confusion of bodies and arms, creating a dynamic image. Usually you want to have "clean air" around a subject to make it stand out, but not in this case.

January: One month in which it arrived on Millimeter and swung the title race in favor of Manchester City. John Stones' refusal to win a penalty against Liverpool helped City become the first and only team to beat Jürgen Klopp's men throughout the season. The game of the month – if not the game of the season – took place in Molineux, where Diogo Jota's 93rd-minute goal defeated the Wolves 4-2 against Leicester. The image of the enthusiastic Wolf fans is full of great facial expressions and faces the image of dejected Leicester manager Claude Puel with his head in his hands. The two extremes embody the universal torments and ecstasies of football.

I'm not sure if the shot that looked down on the tattooed Manchester City fan was patchy or random (presumably the former). In any case, it is a blast. City won the match 3-1 against Arsenal that day thanks to a hat-trick by Sergio Agüero – his 14th for the club. Nevertheless, City was two points behind Liverpool after playing one more game. By the end of the month, the gap had dropped to a point after both teams had played 28 games. Also noteworthy is the attitude in which Miguel Almirón of Newcastle United is terribly upset by Tommy Smith of Huddersfield. Needless to say, Smith got a red card.

After Huddersfield and Fulham had cut off long before the spring, Cardiff was the only team in the lower three ranks to hope to stay in the race. It is likely that Neil Warnock dropped the pin when Chelsea falsely scored a late goal, although it was clearly offside. Warnock stormed the field at the final whistle and stared at the officials before turning his anger on poor David Luiz. Warnock forgot the gates and was on this day the defining frame for ballistics.

Many months overdue, and since their short title hopes had already passed, Tottenham finally left Wembley and moved to their new home. And what a home. Designed by Christopher Lee, the 62,062-seat stadium cost £ 1 billion and was lit by pre-match pyrotechnics for the premier league Premier League game against Crystal Palace. Tottenham's son Heung-Min was the first player to hit there when he led the Lilywhites to a victorious start on home soil, but the backs obviously led to the immense spectacle that preceded them.

Vincent Kompany's unexpected howitzer against Leicester was a crucial goal in the title race. However, the strike was so unexpected that almost no photographers were ready. To be fair, Leicester's defenders were still. Kompany had not met the target from outside since 2013 and even his manager and teammates asked him not to give it a try. The resulting image, seen from the opposite end of the field, captures the net bulge. Of course we would have liked to get better pictures of the strike itself, but somehow that feels pretty fitting after the strike – a moment when no one in the stadium has fully grasped the success of Kompany from 25 yards. Although the last day of the season gave the Liverpool fans a brief hope, it was Pep Guardiola, not Klopp, who was thrown into the air at the final whistle.
