Update: The latest list of Muslim Football Players 2019-20
At my last count (September 2018) there was 50+ muslim players in the Premier league. I’ve always updated the list with all the players twice in each season. This season instead of updated the list I’m just going to list what I think is the 10 best Muslim players currently in the Premier League.
The teams in the Premier League are among the best teams in the World, playing in the best competition, currently 3 teams out of 4 have made it to the knockout stages of the UEFA Champions League. With only Liverpool yet to play their second leg away to Bayern Munich. If they win then that’ll be 4 out of 4 teams from the Premier League with each team having some Muslim players.
