Sky Sports rank the 50 best players never to win the English league

Liverpool v Manchester United - Premier League

Rival fans love to remind Steven Gerrard of the fact that he never won the Premier League.

He won everything there is to win in football, including the Champions League and the FA Cup, but the Premier League title eluded him.

Back in 2015, the former Liverpool skipper admitted that it’s the biggest regret of his long and storied Anfield career.

“It is not the only regret, I think it is the biggest," Gerrard told Football Focus.

"I would love to say that I have got the full collection, it would be the icing on the cake."

Gerrard isn’t the only top player never to have won the league. The likes of Glenn Hoddle, Gary Lineker and Paul Gascoigne all missed out as well.

And Sky Sports have now ranked the 50 best players never to win the English title.

There are some legendary names on that list.

Gascoigne, like Gerrard, would have won multiple league titles in England had he
moved to the right club.

He turned down Manchester United in 1988, joining Tottenham instead. Gazza later admitted it’s one of the biggest regrets of his career.

Moore takes the No.1 spot and it’s easy to see why.

Easily West Ham’s greatest-ever player, Moore captained England to World Cup glory in 1966 but didn’t win the league with the Hammers.

The list proves just how difficult it is to win the league. Although in Gerrard’s case, all he had to do was not slip.
