Since it was born out of the dying days of the English First Division, the Premier League has gone on to be the top football league in the world in terms of popularity. Since 1992 however, the Premier League era has only seen a handful of winners.
With Liverpool neck-and-neck with Man City, searching for their first victory, we wanted to take a look at the teams who’ve been skilled enough to lift the trophy:
