Everyone has their own list of best players to ever play in England. However, the Premier League have decided to make an official list. The Premier League Hall of Fame is an attempt to engage fans and reward those players who truly reached the top during their playing days.

The initial 2 players to be inducted on the list are strong ones: EPL all-time top scorer Alan Shearer and legendary Arsenal and Barcelona striker Theirry Henry. However, these are only the first ones on the list.
