Chelsea v Sunderland - Premier League
The Premier League has begun wonderfully this season

English Premier League. Ah! The mere essence of the name! The toughest and the most competitive league in the world by a mile.

That's how the Premier League is known around the globe.

And it should be so. The English League has the best crop of players and managers, unlike others.

It is way too unpredictable when compared to the other top-flight leagues. Also, you are bound to have a great weekend if you are a fan of a Premier League club.

Like the other leagues, The English top-tier has also seen top players achieve remarkable and memorable feats on an individual as well as club level.

Holding a Premier League record is a proud moment for any footballer who plays in the league.

Records are meant to be broken and so are they, every season.

In this slideshow, we take a look at some of the top feats that can be broken by the current crop of players and managers in the league.

#5: Most Premier League games managed all-time

Everton v Arsenal - Premier League
Arsene Wenger has managed 795 league games with Arsenal

At several junctures last season, it seemed that Arsene Wenger was closer to the axe, following his abysmal record for the past few years.

Wenger's Arsenal never quite managed to dominate the Premier League after the Invincibles era.

However, the owners of the North-London club seem to be thinking on different lines. Wenger has already signed a two-year extension(much to the disappointment of Arsenal fans).

But, putting pen to paper has increased the pressure on his shoulders, considering Arsenal's absence in the UEFA Champions League this season.

Arsene Wenger has been in the Emirates' hot seat since 1996 and could go on to become the manager to manage most Premier League games.

The record has been held by previous Manchester United gaffer Sir Alex Ferguson who oversaw 810 league games with the Red Devlis.

Wenger trails Ferguson with 795 games as of last week, requiring only 15 more games to equal his counterpart.

Surely, Sir Alex will be seeing his record broken by Wenger in the coming months.
