To many, the Premier League still holds the tag of the best league in the world due to its highly competitive nature.
Unlike other top-notch European leagues, the Premier League sees good players distributed uniformly throughout the division, and as a result, even the mid-table clubs are blessed with having some world-class talents in their ranks.
