The 30 Greatest English Players In Premier League History Have Been Named And Ranked

Liverpool legend Steven Gerrard has been named the best English player to ever play in the Premier League ahead of Paul Scholes, Alan Shearer and Wayne Rooney.


But on this occasion, Gerrard managed to climb to the top of a star-studded list of English players to feature in the Premier League's glittering history.

The rankings, compiled by 90min, placed Gerrard at No 1 as Premier League legends Shearer and Scholes finished second and third respectively.

Gerrard was branded as a player who "could do just about everything and he carried his side for a number of years."

The publication added that "there really wasn't much he couldn't do" as the Rangers boss enjoyed an illustrious playing career at Anfield.
