England's top division is a league of many qualities, such as its fast-paced nature and sold out stadiums, but it is also a diverse league made up of players from across the globe.
For example, United's most expensive signing ever, Paul Pogba, could very well have played for Guinea, where both of his brothers, Mathias and Florentin, who are just a few years older than him, were born.
Shortly after having their first two kids, Pogba's parents sought a better life for themselves in France, the nation their youngest son has represented 67 times and won a Fifa World Cup with.
The midfielder's club colleague Aaron Wan-Bissaka also boasts African roots, with the right-back still actually eligible to play for DR Congo on the international stage. While he has represented England at U21 level, he is yet to play for the Three Lions' senior team.
Over at Manchester City, winger Leroy Sane is the son to former Senegal international Souleyman Sane, although the Germany international could also have played for France at the highest level had he wished to.
England and Tottenham Hotspur attacker Dele Alli had the chance to represent Nigeria, while Liverpool's Joe Gomez was eligible for Gambia before he debuted for the Three Lions in 2017 – click through the gallery above to see more EPL talents with Africa roots!
