Who is the greatest Premier League club in history? Find out here in a points-per-game standing covering all 49 teams that have competed in the English top-flight.

The Premier League has been arguably the most popular and competitive league around Europe since its inception in 1992. Just about every top player wants a slice of the action. It’s brought us many unforgettable moments and incredible teams, including plenty of drama.

But just who is the greatest side of them all? There are so many worthy candidates to choose from Sir Alex Ferguson’s many Manchester United teams, Arsenal’s Invincibles, Jose Mourinho’s first Chelsea side, Pep Guardiola’s record-breaking Manchester City of 2017/18 and this season’s Liverpool under Jurgen Klopp.

One way to help decide on a winner is looking at who has won the most Premier League titles.

Topping this list is Manchester United on a staggering 13 crowns. Chelsea (5 titles), Manchester City (4), Arsenal (3), Blackburn Rovers (1) and Leicester City (1) sit behind them as best of the rest.

Another way could be by checking out every single Premier League club’s points-per-game ratio, thanks to talkSPORT’s research.

The English sports radio station has done all the hard work, declaring Manchester United as the best Premier League club of all-time. Considering their record 13 league titles, this may come as no surprise.

Huddersfield Town, who were relegated last season, finished bottom as the worst team in history. The Terriers played in the top-flight for two seasons between 2017 and 2019, recording a points-per-game ratio of 0.70.

Derby County, who hold the unwanted record of the least points in a single Premier League season from their 11-point haul in 2007/08, still finished 38th.

While Swindon Town sit above Huddersfield despite conceding 100 goals and winning just five times in 42 games in their sole campaign in 1993/94.
