The British soccer league, also known as the Premier League, is one of the most important competitions in the world. Founded on May 27, 1992, the truth is that its system is not as old as it seems. Currently, Manchester City is the true protagonist of this season, as it has more than 60 points. Immediately after, there are Liverpool, Chelsea and Manchester United, which are other of the biggest institutions that this country has. However, did this leadership always occur historically?

Well, here we will tell you who have been the clubs with the highest number of games won in the Premier League to date. It should be noted that we will only consider the seasons from 1992 onwards, which was the year in which the competition system was updated to the one we know today.

Manchester United

Manchester United recently made history by becoming the first team to record 700 Premier League wins. This happened in the 4-2 win over Marcelo Bielsa's Leeds United at Elland Road. Although United's present is not the best, it should be noted that he has a well-known league background.

For example, the Old Trafford team is also the one with the most titles since the creation of this tournament, with a total of 20 conquests. Most of them occurred in the period in which Alex Ferguson directed the institution, more specifically between 1986 and 2013.

Well, precisely since the 2012/2013 season the Red Devils have not been able to win this trophy again. Despite not obtaining this cup again, they have managed to maintain a good sustained performance over the years, which makes them comfortably at the top of this list.

Chelsea

Second place is Chelsea, 89 wins away from catching up with Manchester United. It will not be easy at all, despite the fact that those led by Tuchel are currently going through an excellent present. Thus, those from London were also protagonists of the last leagues, with triumphs in different years.

For example, all fans remember the two-time championship won between 2004 and 2006, both by José Mourinho. For 2009-2010 they would enjoy this title again, something that they would repeat in 2014 and 2016, the last time they kept it. The main problem they currently have is the "hegemony" of Guardiola's Manchester City.

Despite this, it seems unlikely that Chelsea will be able to equal or overtake United in terms of wins in the near future. Mainly because United, despite their ups and downs, are almost always in the TOP-7 during the last seasons, which implies a good harvest of points year after year.

Arsenal

Arsenal have been one of the leading teams in the Premier League in recent seasons, which explains why they have 610 wins. However, unlike Manchester United, the Londoners have had a historic problem: acquiring titles, something they last achieved in the 2003-2004 season.

Since then, the work of Arsene Wenger has been criticized a lot, a coach who used to fight for the top positions in the Premier League, but he always lacked a plus to complete that work with a new trophy. The Frenchman was in charge of Arsenal between 1996 and 2018, becoming one of the Premier's inevitably together with Alex Ferguson.

The Gunners are currently experiencing a time of transition. Directed by Mikel Arteta, they continue to occupy high positions in the classification table, but it seems increasingly difficult for them to win a Premier League. Will they get it again in the next few years?

Liverpool

Finally, Liverpool appear, with a lower figure than Arsenal and Chelsea, as they are two games away from reaching 600 wins. Now, in terms of frustration at the local level, something similar happens with Arsenal: for years, the league title was difficult for them to obtain.

Even those from Anfield won the Champions League, but they couldn't be happy with a title in England. This "curse" was broken in the 2019-2020 season at the hands of Jurgen Klopp, who gave them the first Premier League title in their history, since those prior to the creation of this format are not considered..

As with the previous cases, Liverpool always competes at the highest level within the country. Since the arrival of the German strategist, they are always serious candidates for the championship, so it should not be surprising that the team rise to a second or third place in the coming years.
