6 Reasons Why EPL Is The League To Watch In Europe
An inquiry into what makes the Premier League so loved around the world.
The English Premier League, by common consensus, is easily the most followed football tournament in world football. Teams from the league have hundreds of millions of fans from every corner of the globe, who bay for the blood of opposition teams each weekend and cheer on their favourite teams – whether they are watching the games on TV, or are inside the stadium and watching the game live. Manchester United, Liverpool, Arsenal and Chelsea replica jerseys are some of the commonest t-shirts found worldwide.
In this piece, we examine why the league has such a huge following, and because of what reasons the attractiveness of the Premier League is grounded in.
#1 Greatest amount of talent
While the Real Madrids and Bayern Munichs of the world can claim to attract just the world’s very best players, there are way too many excellent players plying their trade in the Premier League for any other league in the world to match its level of glitz and glamour.
Nearly every Premier League squad has at least one attacker capable of troubling any defense in the world. The concentration of world-class players is higher in the better-placed clubs (read: the Premier League top 7), but there is a sense that each team in the league can look to at least one go-to player, who can dig them out of a hole on a given day.
Mesut Ozil, Sergio Aguero, Riyad Mahrez, Zlatan Ibrahimovic, Kevin de Bruyne, Dimitri Payet, David Silva, Eden Hazard, Diego Costa.......the list of world-class players in the Premier League is easily the longest out of any European league.
