The Last Fully English Premier League Starting XI

23 years ago a rather unique moment happened as we saw the last fully English Premier League starting XI take to the field.

In the latest podcast from The Analyst, we take a look back to that era and how playing time for English players has declined since the competition’s inception. We also take a look at some of the other Premier League starting XI’s that have made history, as well as a glance across the top five leagues in Europe for their own records.

This podcast originally appeared as an article on The Analyst in February 2022.
