With the Premier League title a two horse race between two Manchester clubs, it’s no secret that Manchester is a city on the rise in football. Sure, it’s always had Manchester United, one of the golden standards when it comes to football clubs, but Manchester City is now a major powerhouse in England—and don’t expect them to go away any time soon.
Nonetheless, Londoners will still claim that their city is the capital of football—and they have every right to do so. A quarter of the teams in the Premier League currently play in London: Arsenal, Chelsea, Spurs, Fulham, and Queens Park Rangers. Three of those teams are in the top five, and four of them are in the top half of the table.
As you’re about to see, London still has plenty of talent on its clubs to boast about.
