The English Premier League is unarguably the best league in the world, with the best players competing for points every match day.
Most premier league squads have two players to cover each position on the pitch. Still, the bigger teams who can afford the bill can boast 3-4 players covering each position. Keeping players fresh and motivated all season long significantly contributes to the team’s successes. Still, despite having substitutes available, some players are usually irreplaceable by their clubs due to the crucial roles they play on the pitch.
A quick glance at any club’s football stats for the season will show you the important contributions of certain players in their squads. So, if the fitness of such players is not in doubt, coaches love to play them for their importance on the pitch.
