Manchester City might be winning the 2017-18 Premier League title, but this season surely has belonged to Mohamed Salah. The Egyptian has been banging in goals left right and center, scoring 21 goals in 25 appearances. His super form in front of goal has also made him Liverpool’s fastest player to reach 20 goals in a season.
It’s safe to say that if Salah can continue playing like this for the Reds, he’d become one of the greatest African players in the Premier League. This got us thinking about the best footballers from the 2nd largest continent.
Zimbabwe’s Peter Ndlovu became the first African player to appear in a Premier League game in 1992. Since then, over 300 Africans have followed and taken steps, big and small, in the world’s most popular league. Some have been immortal champions, while some have been comedic duds like Ali Dia.
So, we at SportsWizz decided to rank the 8 best African players to have featured in the Premier League. From dazzling dribblers to rampaging midfielders, this is a very special list.
First up: A player so good, they named him twice!
