The La Liga and Premier League are often cited as the best two leagues in the world by European football lovers. In terms of viewership, the two leagues are the most watched football leagues on the planet. Despite their similarity in popularity, the two leagues differ so much in terms of playing style.

The Premier League is best known for its ferocious pace, physicality and competitive nature. On the other hand, the La Liga is known for its focus on possession, technical superiority and dominance by two teams.

It’s often said that players choose between the two wrongly, the bright lights of either league shouldn’t be the main attraction, it should be what you’re best suited to. Take, for example, Roberto Soldado. In Spain, he was one of the most clinical strikers, in England he struggled to shoot on target. Moral of the story is, some La Liga players are better suited to the Premier League than others.

Here are 5 La Liga players who would dominate the Premier League. 

#5 Dani Ceballos

The Spanish youngster has had his reputation taken to new heights since joining Real Madrid. Many a La Liga expert knew of him before, but his transfer to the Bernabéu has put him on the global map.

At the age of 20, the youngster was the centre of Real Betis as the team was built around him. The Spaniard excels at passing, as he always seeks to initiate counter attacks within a matter of seconds. He’s always looking for the optimum through ball.

His technical attributes may be exceptional but it’s also his personality traits that make him even the more suited to the Premier League. The 21-year old has been described as a natural born leader, often taking the game to his opponents regardless of their quality.
