MANCHESTER CITY WILL BE PROVIDING THE MOST PLAYERS AT THE WORLD CUP
The Premier League is one of the biggest and most watched leagues in the world, with some of the finest football clubs in world football competing against each other. The top flight of English football is the most lucrative league in the world, with multi-billion pound TV deals being signed every few years and being distributed evenly across all twenty Premier League clubs. Considering that every Premier League is guaranteed at least £100 million in TV deals and prize money every season, it is no surprise that every club in the league can afford to spend large sums of money every season in order to improve their squads. There is a fear amongst some fans that the money from TV deals will eventually ‘dry up’ due to the increasing costs, but with television deals worth around £8.4 billion being secured in the past year, there seems to be no end to the amount of money which is being pumped into the league for the time being.
Last season, there were a number of impressive performances from players from all twenty Premier League clubs. Some players managed to put in one or two world class performances, whilst others were in sensational form all season. One of the most consistent players this season was Mohamed Salah. At the start of the season, Salah wasn’t the favourite to be the top goalscorer according to the football odds, but the Egyptian was in sensational form all season and managed to score 32 goals throughout the Premier League season to end up winning the ‘Golden Boot’ trophy. The Egyptian forward stole the headlines all season thanks to his impressive goal tally, but there were other players which were just as impressive. Two-time ‘Golden Boot’ winner Harry Kane narrowly missed out on the award for the third time in a row, finishing just two goals behind Salah. Whilst Manchester City’s Kevin De Bruyne racked up an impressive 16 assists.
These performances throughout the season have meant that a number of players in the league were in the final World Cup squad for their respective countries.
