English football is no doubt the most followed globally. This is because the media in the United Kingdom is able to reach more people around the World. The Premier League is by far the most competitive and entertaining League today.As a result, the division has benefitted immensely especially when it comes to television cash. Today, we want to look at five most decorated clubs in the country. Manchester City won the League this season but they are far away from the five teams below. The top position has changed hands in the last two years.
Take a closer look at the top five;
5. Aston Villa-20 trophies
Aston Villa is no longer a force they once were in English football. They were relegated in 2015/16 season and their troubles continue in the Championship. However, they have a rich history. They were once the top dogs and the evidence is there for all to see. They have a total of 20 major trophies in total to take position five in the country history. The trophies include 7 Premier League titles, 7 FA Cups, 5 League Cups, and 1 European Cup.
4. Chelsea-22 trophies
Chelsea lifted their sixth Premier League title last season. The trophy pushed their all-time tally to 22. They will have another opportunity to add to their tally in May when they face Manchester United in the FA Cup final at Wembley.
The Blues success story started when the Russian owner Roman Abramovich bought the Club in 2004. He invested a lot of money in the squad and trophies followed. They have won five league titles ever since among other trophies. In total, the Stamford Bridge side has lifted 6 EPL titles, 7 FA Cups, 5 League Cups, 1 European Cup, and 3 other European honors.
3. Arsenal- 30 trophies
Arsenal has gone through one of the toughest spells in their history since 2004. They have not lifted the League title for 14 years now. Arsene Wenger has managed to win the FA Cup a number of times but the fans want more now. The Gunners will have a chance to say goodbye to the Frenchman in a dignified manner if they can win Europa League this season.
The Emirates side has failed to lift a single European Cup despite enjoying a lot of success domestically. They reached the final in 2006 but Barcelona led by Ronaldinho was too good for them. The North London side still keep position three in the list of five most successful English teams in history. They have lifted a total of 30 major trophies, they include; 13 EPL titles, 13 FA Cups, 2 League Cups, and 2 other European honors.
