The Premier League is the most watched sports league in the world.
No matter who you speak to, wherever you are in the world, everyone has heard of it and in the majority of cases they will no doubt have an affinity with one of the 20 teams in the illustrious competition.
Every week, the world’s greatest footballers take to the stage to play in front of gigantic stadiums filled to the brim with cheering fans.
But away from the terraces, every fan loves to analyze the game and wonder if their manager pulled off the right tactic before dishing out the jokes to rival fans.
