Summary

The 2011–12 fixtures were announced on 17 June 2011 at 9:00 BST.[2] The season began on 13 August 2011 and ended on 13 May 2012. Manchester United won their thirteenth league title, beating Liverpool 1-0 on 28th April at Anfield courtesy of a last-minute goal from Ashley Young. The title was United's twentieth English title success, making them the most successful club in Football League history. {C}The league was contested by 20 teams, seventeen returning from the 2010–11 season and three promoted from the Football League Championship. Championship winners Queens Park Rangers and runners-up Norwich City gained automatic promotion whilst Swansea City gained promotion through the Football League Championship play-offs beating Reading 4–2 in May 2011. Two of the three promoted clubs were relegated, Norwich City being the only survivors after a surprise 4-2 victory at the Emirates. The season was voted as the greatest Premier League season in the Premier League 20 Seasons Awards.

20,000th goal

Petter Vaagan Moen of QPR, on 21 December in a 2–1 loss to Aston Villa at Villa Park, was officially credited with the 20,000th goal scored since the formation of the Premier League in 1992. He was given £20,000 from league sponsor Barclays to donate to a charity of the player's choice; in this case, Acorns Children's Hospice was the recipient.
