Clubs spend millions to compete in biggest competition and to challenge for the title. Even though there are technically gifted players in the team and they play good football, the success of the team is measured in trophies and here are some of the best top teams in premier league based on their achievements.
Based on the trophies, it is without a doubt that Chelsea is standing on top of the list. From Premier League to FA cup to Champions League to UEFA Europa League, Chelsea has won it all. Since acquired by billionaire owner Roman Abramovich , Chelsea has won 19 major trophies and 11 of them has come in this past decade. They have spent £ 1.376 billion on transfers, their trophies and their dominance on the English Premier League speak for themselves.
Since being bought by Abu Dhabi United Group, Manchester City has spent almost £ 1.330 billion on transfers and has tasted a lot of success. The quest of winning UEFA Champions League is the only reason that separated City from Chelsea and is currently playing one of the most dominating football compared to all other teams in Europe . They have won 10 major honors this past decade, with winning Premier League 5 times to prove their dominance.
They were the most dominant team of 2000’s but after the retirement of Sir Alex Ferguson, they have somewhat lost their track. They have struggled to qualify for the Champions League on the regular basis but has managed to win some trophies for their fans to celebrate. They have managed to win 6 major honors and spent almost a £ 993.45 million on the transfers smashing the market many times to buy best players.
It wasn’t until 2018, Liverpool finding some of its form and coming back as the real challengers for the crown of premier League. After losing a heartbreaking finale to Real Madrid in Champions League, They smashed the world transfer record to bring in the best defender and goalkeeper to strengthen their team. It was rewarded soon after with champions league trophy, followed by premier league title where they almost went unbeatable.
After invincible season and winning “Golden Premier League” title, Arsenal has never been the same since then. Though they manage to win 3 Major honors in this past decade, their success only coming in FA Cups have slipped them below Liverpool in the list. But they become the most successful club in FA cup history lifting it record breaking 13 times.
