The Barclays Premier League is filled with top footballers from all over the World. And Muslim footballers are not short in number either! Nearly every team in the league has had a Muslim player in amidst their ranks.

Currently out of the big teams in the English Premier League Liverpool, Arsenal, Manchester City have Muslim footballers. Of course there are more in the other teams. Muslim footballers have made an exceptional impact on their teams that they are always picked for the first team and if they are absent then it is obvious that they are missing their Muslim team-mate.

Previously I wrote about Top 5 Muslim Football Players in Europe, this time I will list all the teams alphabetically and then list the Muslim footballers in that particular team. They play in positions in their teams from top strikers to midfielders to goal keepers.

If I have missed any please let me know and if you would like to see any other players then do let me know!

So here are all 29 of the Muslim footballers in England, playing in the Barclays Premier League 2012-13 season.
