This article celebrates the top 20 Africans to have featured in the Premier League. Throughout the last 22 years, many of the continent's stars have graced the English top flight. This feature recognises the cream of the crop.
It is important to note that this feature ranks the best African players to have played, at any point, in the EPL. It does not solely consider performances within the EPL and, indeed, some of those mentioned struggled to make an impact in England despite achieving great things elsewhere.
To compile this list and to confirm an order, I have weighed up a player's ability, their individual recognition and their club and international honours.
Not all of these men made the best impression on the English public, but all of them are rightly considered among the finest and most successful Africans to have ever played the sport.
