Quarantine Quiz 1: The Premier League season so far

In these testing and Premier League-less times, a lot of us are currently stuck in doors with very little to do. To try and help ease your boredom for a few minutes, I’ll be posting a daily ‘Quarantine Quiz’ with a minimum of 20 questions on a certain sporting subject to test your brain and give you some sporting fun.

Once you complete the quiz, let us know how many you got right and share to allow your friends to have a go too. Today’s quiz will focus on the 2019/20 Premier League season to date – let’s see how much you remember.

Rules of the Quarantine Quiz

There will be 20 questions at least, written one after the other in a list form. There will be no multiple choice questions, meaning you will have to rack your brain a little bit more.
