According to Transfermarkt, former Blues stalwart Drogba leads the African contingent with four Premier League medals, and all of them were, of course, won during his time at Stamford Bridge. The 40-year-old picked up his first league title in 2005 and received his fourth in 2015, during his second stint at the club.
Toure has now racked up three winner's medals since joining the Manchester club from Spanish giants FC Barcelona in 2010. The Ivorian won the English top-flight title for the first time in 2012, with his second coming two years later under the guidance of Manuel Pellegrini.
South Africa's Quinton Fortune also makes the prestigious list, having also won three league titles during his time at Manchester United. The central midfielder spent six seasons at Old Trafford and won the league with the Red Devils in 2000, 2001 and 2003.
John Obi Mikel (Chelsea), Nwankwo Kanu (Arsenal) and Kolo Toure (Arsenal, Manchester City) are other Africans who have won a Premier League winners' medal, and you can find the complete list in our gallery above.
