The Premier League’s popularity expands beyond United Kingdom and has spread across the globe over the last few decades. It is undoubtedly one of the most popular leagues in world football. There are multiple reasons behind the massive popularity of the English Premier League. The fast pace at which the games are being played, makes it an interesting watch. The end-to-end affair can keep its viewers on the edge of the seat for most matches.
Besides, the competitive nature of the Premier League makes it an extremely challenging affair for all teams involved in the division. The massive TV revenue has played a part in helping the clubs build a squad capable of competing against any team on a given day. This unpredictable nature of the games adds to the viewing experience for its supporters.
Which club has taken the most corners?
The number of corners a team takes in a game is determined by how purposeful they are in the attacking third of the pitch. Hence, it is not a surprise to see attack-minded sides topping this list. The team at the top of this list is Manchester City with 4,339 corners being taken, as per the premierleague.com (some stats are only available since 2006-07 season). City have undoubtedly been the most successful side in the Premier League over the last decade, as they have been fighting for silverware on all fronts on a regular basis.
Second in the table is Liverpool with 4,311 corners in the Premier League era. They are not far behind Man City and have indeed provided stern test to the blue half of Manchester in recent years. Third place is occupied by Chelsea with 4,057 corners. The Blues rose to prominence in the division in mid-2000s and have since been a real force to be reckoned with. Be it in domestic or European competitions, Chelsea have been considered a team to be feared.
Arsenal, Manchester United not far behind
The top three are closely followed by Arsenal and Manchester United in the fourth and fifth positions. These two sides were the first to create an intense rivalry between each other for the EPL title, which lasted for several years. Even though they have not been able to live up to that level of late, these two fallen giants seem to be coming back into the frame once again.
