The 2018/19 Premier League campaign finished with Liverpool ending second behind Manchester City in the race for the title, while Everton landed eighth spot.
The Championship play-off final, Europa League final and the Champions League final are still to be played - but for the most part, attentions have turned towards next season.
There is plenty in store for Premier League sides when it comes to rule changes. We already know that VAR will be introduced, but what about the key rule changes which will affect teams across the league?
The IFAB (International Football Association Board) have approved changes and clarifications to the Laws of the Game.
These alterations will have a huge impact on the Premier League and its sides, so let's take a look at the new rules in detail.Handballs
The IFAB has clarified the situation in regards to handball decisions ahead of next season.
Goals will be disallowed if the ball accidentally strikes a player's hand in the build-up.
A free-kick will also be awarded outside of the penalty box if a player has accidentally created an advantage by handling the ballDrop balls
The IFAB has also had its say on drop balls and is aiming to get rid of 'manufactured' restarts.
"The current dropped ball procedure often leads to a ‘manufactured’ restart which is ‘exploited’ unfairly or an aggressive confrontation," the IFAB explained.
"Returning the ball to the team that last played it restores what was ‘lost’ when play was stopped, except in the penalty area where it is simpler to return the ball to the goalkeeper.
"To prevent that team gaining an unfair advantage, all players of both teams, except the player receiving the ball, must be at least 4m (4.5 yds) away."Substitutions
Another rule which has been introduced for next season sees some major alterations to substitutions.
Now players will have to leave the pitch at the nearest point rather than walk slowly across the field late in games and waste time.Free-kicks
Attacking teams will no longer be allowed to have a player in the defensive wall for a free-kick.
When there is a wall of at least three players, those on the attacking team are not allowed to stand within one metre of the wall.
"There is no legitimate tactical justification for attackers to be in the ‘wall’ and their presence is against the ‘spirit of the game’ and often damages the image of the game," an IFAB statement explained.Penalty kicks
This has certainly been overdue with goalkeepers taking advantage on penalty situations for a while now.
But from next season they will have to have one foot on the line.
Not only must keepers be touching the line, they will not be allowed to touch the goalposts before the ball is kicked.Cards for coaches
Referees will now be able to show them a yellow card or a red card in the same way they do with players on the pitch. https://www.liverpoolecho.co.uk/sport/football/football-news/premier-league-rule-changes-news-16298463?fbclid=IwAR0pqDEK1rSbVAaeXgeQGkFqkTPDaFhqLGiCUu7kqH0FA7TPCbz2rOP8cSA
I only disagree with the keeper not be allowed to touch the goalposts before the ball is kicked. He's a sitting duck then!
