Which club has produced the most England players? Forgotten team third on the list

Only England’s best are privileged enough to win a Three Lions cap, but which domestic sides have provided the country with the deepest talent pools?

Turning out for your country is one of the highest honours any player can achieve, and England has been fortunate enough to pull talent from some of the finest domestic teams down the years.

Liverpool, Manchester United, Chelsea and Manchester City - sides that have all enjoyed periods of domestic and European dominance - have frequently had players represent England in the past.

Liverpool have Trent Alexander-Arnold in the Three Lions mix at present, but their distinguished history also includes the likes of Roger Hunt, Emlyn Hughes, Kevin Keegan, John Barnes, Robbie Fowler, Michael Owen and Steven Gerrard.


Wayne Rooney is a product of Everton but also a Manchester United legend, with the Toffees also delivering World Cup winners Ray Wilson and Alan Ball.

Elsewhere, United are responsible for Duncan Edwards, Bobby Charlton, Bryan Robson, Gary Neville, David Beckham, Paul Scholes, Rio Ferdinand and Marcus Rashford.


But which club sides have produced the most players for England? SPORTbible takes a look… (Table correct at time of writing on 20/11/2023)


Tottenham 79

Aston Villa 76

Corinthian 76

Liverpool 74


Everton 70

Manchester United 70

Arsenal 69

Chelsea 55


Manchester City 52

Blackburn 48

West Brom 45

West Ham 45


Tottenham and Aston Villa have provided the most England players in the past, while the likes of Liverpool, Everton and United are not far behind.

Indeed, Spurs have contributed several household names to the cause down the years, with the likes of Jimmy Greaves, Glenn Hoddle, Gary Lineker, Paul Gascoigne and current England captain Harry Kane all representing their country when on the books of the north London club.

Furthermore, Tyrone Mings, Ollie Watkins and Jack Grealish have been the most recent representatives from Aston Villa, while Ezri Konsa may follow suit in the coming days. However, the Birmingham-based outfit provided a heap of England at the turn of the 20th century.

Arsenal and Chelsea are further down the list but have both seen Eddie Nketiah and Cole Palmer earn a first England cap across the past two international breaks.

Meanwhile, Corinthian, a London-based outfit that existed between 1882 and 1939, were an English football powerhouse during the amateur era and to this day, have produced more England captains (16) than any other team.
