Top 10 Greatest English Premier League Clubs

When we talk about the pinnacle of English football, we're naturally drawn to the Premier League. This top-tier competition, launched in 1992, has since become a global phenomenon, captivating millions of fans around the world with a thrilling blend of skill, drama, and unpredictable storylines.

So, if we dive into the fascinating world of the Premier League, which are the clubs that have truly stood out? This question may sound simple, but the answer is anything but. After all, how does one measure greatness? Is it the number of Premier League titles won? The consistency over the years? Or perhaps it's the ability to inspire, to rally, and to evoke passion among the fanbase?

Some would argue that the greatest clubs are the ones that have managed to lift the coveted Premier League trophy multiple times, etching their names in the annals of English football history. Undoubtedly, clubs like Manchester United, with their slew of titles, Arsenal's "Invincibles," or the free-scoring Manchester City side under Pep Guardiola, spring to mind.

Then there are clubs like Liverpool, with their dramatic comebacks and never-say-die spirit, or Chelsea, with their tactical prowess and knack for winning big games. One can't forget the clubs that, despite not always coming out on top, consistently add depth and excitement to the league, such as Tottenham Hotspur or Everton.

Moreover, there's an undeniable respect for those clubs that, despite not having the same financial firepower as their top-tier counterparts, managed to etch out unforgettable Premier League stories. Think of Blackburn Rovers' remarkable title-winning run in the mid-'90s or Leicester City's dreamlike ascendancy in 2016.

However, no matter how deeply we dive into stats, records, and memorable moments, the question of the "greatest" Premier League club is largely subjective and often swayed by personal loyalty and emotion. This is why we've thrown the question over to you, the fans.

We're asking you to vote for the clubs that you believe are the greatest in Premier League history. Don't just consider the trophies or the star players, but also think about the impact these clubs have had on the beautiful game and how they've shaped the Premier League's unique identity.
The Top Ten
1 Manchester United Revered as a dominant force in English football, the Red Devils boast the highest number of Premier League titles, shaped by iconic figures like Sir Alex Ferguson and players such as Ryan Giggs and Wayne Rooney.

Love them a lot. Easily one of the best clubs of all time! Under fergie they were top class. I really hope we win lots of trophies in the next few years.

Under fergie we were easily the greatest British team of all time and a contender for the greatest club of all time (even as a Man U fan it's hard to deny the European giants such as Barca, Real Madrid and Bayern Munich their place as the top echelon of European football out of sheer respect) but still, in terms of the English league it's absolutely no question. 13 premier league titles and 3 UEFA champions league titles, those are undeniable figures. Since fergie left we have fallen on harder times but a true supporter will stick to his team till the bitter end and we will get that premier league title back once again this season MARK MY WORDS!

The back 4 of Shaw, Dalot, Martinez, and Varane is undeniably one of the best as well as the midfield led by Eriksen, Casemiro, and Fernandes. Ten Hag is a phenomenal coach. Quality

2 Arsenal The Gunners' 2003-04 "Invincibles" season remains a unique achievement in the Premier League, while legendary figures like Thierry Henry and Arsene Wenger continue to define the club's rich legacy.

While Wenger's hesitance to sign have caused problems, and things at the Emirates have slowed, Arsenal have incredibly finished within the top four in recent years, something which they are somehow mocked for. They are consistently good, though not quite incredible. Their nature and style is what drew me, as an American fan, to them. While at the moment they are not the best in the league, they have hosted, arguably, four of the top ten Premier League players of all time: Henry, Vieira, Adams, and, my personal favorite, Bergkamp. I hope they do well in the future, and find their way back to the top after 12 years.

It's not the money that comes in that decides the quality of the club, it should never be, it's the passion of the fans, the teamwork of players that know how to work with each other and the dedication of the coach that makes a team great. Wenger has had a long run without trophies but then if you talk about other clubs, just see the stats and say if they were made by such hardship as Wenger or they just got great with lavish spendings. It's easy to see new faces in most of the clubs, come and gone with money but at arsenal we do not see such expensive players, not so much stars but they get chance to play with each other for long enough that they can compete clubs with big money. Highest no of FA Cup wins, always getting to the champions league and quiet good number of EPL wins for the cash that comes in. Arsenal is not about money, it is a club that has learned to survive and compete, while other clubs might fall down when there is no cash or the owner's company does bad in the stock market, Arsenal will be there. Still competing, winning and gunning.

3 Liverpool The Reds' history is filled with dramatic comebacks and thrilling matches. Their long-awaited Premier League title win in 2020 added to their storied legacy that includes legends like Steven Gerrard.

I started liking Liverpool when Michael Owen started his career in Anfield. I was a great Owen Fan. But my love for Liverpool grew so much that when Owen left the club for Real Madrid, I could not leave them. "Why they are the best? " Well, there are many reasons but what I most like about them is: "They always do not have the best team in EPL but the way they play, they make themselves one of the best". Apart from the Titles they won, they also have the all time favorite football anthem, produced some the world's finest footballers, have a great team spirit, a huge fan base all over the world, and of course the unforgettable skipper "Stevie G". Proud of You "The Reds"

Have been a fan of Liverpool since a little girl. They have always played well and I have great faith in them for every game. There is nothing wrong in losing a game. A bird can never be flying up all the time, it has to come down for rest and to fill its hunger. I am really very proud of them as a team for they have really shown what they are capable of. Keep your heads high my children. God is good all the time and you have a very lovely captain.

4 Chelsea The Blues have displayed remarkable growth since the turn of the century, winning numerous titles under various managers, with figures like Frank Lampard and John Terry leaving a lasting legacy.

Chelsea is ready for anything! Recently, Chelsea has played better than ever. After winning the FA cup many of the fans of other teams have changed their opinions, or at least the ones I know. Does anyone even remember when Chelsea beat Queens Park Rangers 6-1. And Torres scored a hat trick in that match!

Chelsea in the preseason gams showed a good attacking force and still maintaining the great defensive play that they had in the previous season. With Chelsea's new players already showing the fans what they are capable of doing, it looks as if Chelsea are going to have a good season,

Chelsea has that winning mentality. You can always expect an exciting performance out of the player's on the team. With the new additions of Torres and Luiz, Chelsea will soon become the best team in England if they are not so already.

5 Manchester City From battling relegation to becoming a top-tier club, the Citizens' transformation into a Premier League powerhouse, under the guidance of Pep Guardiola, has been remarkable, with memorable players like Sergio Agüero.

Best team I can say they beat Chelsea 3-0 two times and beat Barcelona
3-1 plus real Madrid 4-1 the are the future team.. Manchester city has won to arsenal 6-3,tottenham spur 6-0,manchester united 6-0 and Norwich 7-0. the team that has appear from no way Manchester city is the best team in the world go sky blues go well this season.

My Dad works at man City 6-3 City crushed United 6-0 to again City destroyed Nottingham forest Halland and foden has had an amazing season so far go on City!

I love manchester city,
I started following it last season, I saw a kind of team spirit which I haven't for sure seen in any other club.
When you talk football, talk man city.
I love man city...

6 Tottenham Hotspur Spurs have consistently competed at the top end of the Premier League, with stars like Harry Kane and managers such as Mauricio Pochettino leaving a significant impact.

I reckon this club is often denied of the respect it actually deserves. They were actually the pioneers of the English style of football and literally taught us how to win leagues and win them comprehensively and impressively. Yes, they are living in the perpetual shadow of rivals Arsenal but continuous managerial changes have regularly knocked the stuffing out of them. Every time a new gaffer comes in, with him come new ideologies and techniques and that is costing them loads. In the 2013-14 season, we saw them lose games on their own by committing school boy defensive errors while other times, they ran luckless. I'm a Man United fan but I respect Spurs a lot despite of the fact that they are 'fond' of finishing outside the TOP 4

TOTTENHAM Hotspur is the best team in the world better than Barcelona and real madrid arsenal is the worst team in the world Tottenham have Harry Kane the best team in the world also Eriksen and we have the best mananger an Argentinean man I can not pronouce his name.We are going to win The Premier League man utd, man city, arsenal, we are coming for you watch out you are going down to the bottom league! AIA the marvellous company who is sponsoring Tottenham Hotspur 2015-16 AKA you are amazing and wonderful I have always surported Tottenham all my life even my first second in the world I have a bear with a Tottenham badge on it I have millions of Tottenham shirts!

7 Newcastle United The Magpies have enjoyed memorable periods in the Premier League, including the entertaining 'Entertainers' era of the mid-90s, with legendary striker Alan Shearer leading the line.

Proud past, future champions. Having a little bad luck this season, but newly signed young talent should help them get back where they belong, in the Champions League. I remember watching Shearer, Beardsley, Asprilla, and Gascgoine in the black and white, what powerhouse teams they had.

Close to winning the League once, have a great team with a world famous manager. They are in the Championship this season but they will come back up. Toon Toon Black and White Army!

I am an arsenal fan but respect Newcastle. They are in the relegation zone every year but always find a way to stay up. They have a very large fanbase but haven't won a trophy since 1969

8 Everton As one of the longest-standing clubs in the top flight, the Toffees have become a Premier League mainstay, producing talents like Wayne Rooney and boasting the managerial expertise of Carlo Ancelotti.

Liverpool, Chelsea, Manchester United, Manchester City, Arsenal, and Tottenham are all Moneybags! Everton is by far the best Premier League team (that isn't filthy rich)!

A team know one Has a bad word to say about. One of the all time greats, and yet every year with limited resources we continue to impress and achieve above expectation

If you had a list of top teams with limited spending then Everton would be number 1 on that list!

9 West Ham United The Hammers have provided the Premier League with a rich crop of talent from their renowned academy, including the likes of Rio Ferdinand, while achieving notable top-half finishes.

Really has a place in my heart. Antonio has just been really good for WH this season. They can still get to the Champions League. I would love that. I think that would be better than Iceland making it to the World Cup.

A very historic, but great club. It has very loyal supporters and a west ham player was captain of england in the 1966 final.

Go hammers go! Excellent team and awesome fans

10 Leicester City The Foxes made history with their 5000-1 Premier League win in 2016, a story of the underdog that captivated fans globally, and the legacy of players like Jamie Vardy continues to shape the club.

Leicester city is the best. Claudio Ranierio is the best manager and if you think I am lying then he won the sports personality manager

I've always supported Leicester and they're not horrid got it. They should be ranked number one not man u. Leicester beat Man U, Liverpool and so many other teams. They won the FA Cup, Premier League and even the FA Community Shield.

I don't think they're the best, but they certainly deserve a few places higher.

The Contenders
11 Aston Villa As a club with a rich history, the Villains have enjoyed several standout Premier League campaigns, producing talents like Jack Grealish and achieving top-half finishes.

Undervalued considering the history and success of the club in years gone by. Inventors of the football league and former European champions.

To Aston villa I surpport Man City and James milner would be a great player milner is a great player so next year get him back.

Aston Villa welcome back to Premier League 2019!

12 Southampton Known for their outstanding youth academy, the Saints have contributed many stars to the Premier League, including Gareth Bale, while consistently competing in the top flight.

They play fast, high intensity football and have one of the best youth academys in Europe. They're just starting to become a genuine challenger for the top 6 now. The new Everton?

13 Wolverhampton Wanderers After gaining promotion in 2018, Wolves quickly became a top-half Premier League club, with an exciting brand of football under Nuno Espírito Santo and talented players like Raul Jimenez.

Brilliant, all though they haven't won the Premier League yet!

Only team I have never heard of. Probably for a good reason.

Best team in the world

14 Swansea City The Swans impressed during their time in the Premier League with a possession-based style of play, producing talents like Michu and securing their highest-ever finish in the 2014-15 season.

Definitely know how to handle the ball well when in trouble on the pitch!

15 Wigan Athletic The Latics spent eight years in the Premier League and made history by winning the FA Cup in 2013, thanks to a memorable goal from Ben Watson.

Because they have won a lot of trophies and have arrived several times to the champions league

16 Blackburn Rovers The Rovers etched their name in history by winning the Premier League title in 1994-95, thanks to the prolific strike partnership of Alan Shearer and Chris Sutton.
17 West Bromwich Albion The Baggies have had several stints in the Premier League, known for their battling performances and producing talents such as Saido Berahino.
18 Crystal Palace The Eagles have become Premier League stalwarts, known for their passionate fanbase and memorable players, including the dazzling skills of Wilfried Zaha.

This is so old! Manchester City are on top and crystal palace are in 12th? :/

Crystal palace is a great team if they work harder they will excel

It is a good team

19 Leeds United The Whites, under the guidance of Marcelo Bielsa, returned to the Premier League after a 16-year absence, recapturing their status as a formidable club with a passionate fanbase.

Should be higher up than this. What a joke

20 Nottingham Forest Although their Premier League stints have been limited, Forest remain one of England's most storied clubs, with past glories including two consecutive European Cup wins.

They may not be very good now but under Brian Clough they won the Title once and the European Cup (a.k.a. the Champions League) twice

21 Burnley Under Sean Dyche, the Clarets have become a recognizable Premier League team, known for their solid defensive structure and team ethos.
22 Sunderland Despite recent struggles, the Black Cats have a rich Premier League history, with notable characters such as Kevin Phillips, who won the European Golden Shoe while at the club.

They're down in League One at the moment. Take them off.

Not at all. No way. Should not be on the list.

Sunderland has beaten Manchester United and Manchester City so I think they should go a bit higher

23 Stoke City Known for their physical style of play, the Potters maintained a 10-year stint in the Premier League, with memorable players like Peter Crouch and a reputation as a tough place for any away team.

The oldest team in the Premier League (And second oldest in the World after Notts County) Owned by a local man & lifelong supporter (Peter Coates) Gave the world modern football through the legendary Sir Stanley Matthews (Never booked despite playing into his 50's. First footballer to be Knighted, only footballer to be Knighted whilst still playing, first winner of the Ballon d'Or) Loudest, most passionate support in the country (Made up of local fans too! ) What's not to like?

Very underrated team with some brilliant players and a good manager in Mark Hughes.

Who doesn't love Peter Crouch?

24 Watford The Hornets have had multiple stints in the Premier League, with standout players like Troy Deeney leaving a lasting impression, coupled with a memorable FA Cup run in 2019.

Ended Liverpool's unbeaten streak 2019-2020 season.

13 points in 6 games. Way better than at least 80% of the teams rated above

Far more organised than Leicester city, just haven't been as lucky

25 Norwich City The Canaries have experienced several promotions to the Premier League, showcasing attacking football and players like Teemu Pukki, who won the Golden Boot in their promotion-winning season.

They are a resilient hard working team who never gives up they shouldn't be 28th they should be 1st. By a 10 year old girl
