The English Premierleague (Barclays PL) is one of the most exciting competitions in the world of football. The EPL head office is based in London and looks after the competition, training and coach development, and more.
The season starts in August and comes to a head in May, with transfer windows open in August and January. The league is home to the leading 20 teams in England and each year, all teams play each other to either win the league, earn a spot in European competitions such as the Champions League, Europa League or Europa Conference League – or else fight simply for survival and to avoid relegation into the Championship – every team’s worst-case scenario. The competition involves 38 games per team (playing all other teams home and away), with highly anticipated matches including derbies such as Manchester City v Manchester United, Liverpool v Everton and London derbies such as Arsenal v Tottenham.
The Premier League, as we know it, was founded as the FA Premier League in 1992 after the highest-level clubs – in the Football League first division – decided to break away. Thus, the English Premiership was born. The original first-tier English football league – League One was founded way back in 1888.
Now, English Premier League football is the most popular sports league in the world and the average attendance for each match is around 38,200. In total around 14,508,981 fans attend the season’s games, making the British Premier League the most popular in the world. What’s more, in terms of Premiership team news, the EPL teams rank first in terms of their performances in Europe over the past 5 years. Indeed, the English Premier League has produced the second most UEFA Champions League winners, with 5 English teams winning a total of 14 trophies.
Since its inception in 1992, there have been 49 clubs that have competed in England’s top-flight competition, with seven teams having won it at least once:
Man United – 13 times
Chelsea – 5 times
Man City – 5 times
Arsenal – 3 times
Blackburn Rovers – 1 time
Leicester City – 1 time
Liverpool – 1 time

Generally, the top four teams in the EPL will qualify for a Champions League place the next season. The 5th and 6th placed teams will usually qualify for a Europa League spot unless there has been a competition winner that reduces it to 5th spot only. The Europa Conference League spot is given to the winner of the EFL Cup, however if that team has already qualified for European competition based on higher league position, it is transferred to the next highest-placed Premier League team not already qualified for European competition – 7th in the case of the 2020/21 season.
Currently, the most successful team in the EPL is Man United, which has won the trophy a staggering thirteen times. This is followed by Chelsea and Man City, both having won the title 5 times. Arsenal has won it three times, Blackburn Rovers, Leicester City and Liverpool have all won the trophy once.
There have been a number of excellent strikers in the EPL. Thierry Henry tops the list as the leading striker in the league’s history by goals to games ratio with 175 goals from 258 appearances. In second place is Alan Shearer, with 260 goals. Third place goes to Man Utd’s Andy Cole with 187 goals from 414 games.
The most successful team in the PL in the 2020/21 season was Manchester City. However, Chelsea did win the Champions League, so have a claim to the title as well.
The Golden Boot winner in the 2020/21 season was Tottenham’s Harry Kane with 23 goals. Mo Salah follows with 22 goals and Bruno Fernando comes third with 18 goals.
Based on club history and results, there are four big clubs in the Premier League that have stayed at the top of the game since the early 2000s. These clubs are Man United, Liverpool, Chelsea and Arsenal. Although some may be surprised that Man City isn’t up there, the club’s success has been relatively recent and this does not yet qualify it as one of the big 4 clubs. Maybe in the future, it will be the Big 5… These clubs have earned a place in football history as the greatest of all time!
