In the third season of the game (19/20) having finished runner up in the PL twice, looks like I'm set to do so once again thanks to Chelsea having an astonishing season.
They lost to City 2-0 a couple of months into the season, but have 22 clean sheets in 25 games, conceding only 4 goals, and won 24 of them, including the tightest 3-0 victory imaginable against my Liverpool side. They're a model of consistency, but I'm still cautiously optimistic about my chances in our next league match against them.
Has anyone else come across an AI team performing as well as this? I'd expect to see it from a Bayern or a PSG maybe, and definitely from human managers, but not in the PL. I'm not complaining though, it makes the save far more engaging
