It has been 23 years since the inauguration of the Premier League and since then, it has gone on to become one of the most-watched leagues in the world. The league started out when the clubs competing in the Top Division in England opted for the formation of a Premier League in 1992, which would give them access to lucrative television deals. These profits would be used to lure the best foreign talent available to try and improve the quality of the game in the country.Players like Eric Cantona, Thierry Henry and Cristiano Ronaldo have graced the EPL with their brilliance, but there have also been some real gems that were unearthed from the British territory. These players have picked up multiple honours with their clubs and have gained recognition and adulation worldwide thanks to their consistent performances.Here is the all-time Premier League XI of British Players in a 4-4-2 formation.Note: The players have to be from the Great Britain (England, Scotland and Wales) 

#1 Goalkeeper: David Seaman

Seaman kept 130 clean sheets from 1992-2002.

David Seaman was an England international and is among the best goalkeepers to have ever played for the country. He earned the nickname ‘Safe Hands’ due to his agility, awareness, and supreme concentration, and has made close to 400 appearances in the Premier League.

Seaman joined Arsenal for £1.3m which was a British record transfer fee for a goalkeeper at the time. Having joined the Gunners in 1990, the Englishman consistently excelled during his 13 years in North London, and won two titles since the inception of the Premier League.

He played 325 games for Arsenal and, even though he was protected by one of the best defences in the game, he managed 130 clean sheets between 1992 and 2002, and won an award for the most clean sheets at the Premier League 10 Seasons awards
