England manager Gareth Southgate has picked his final World Cup squad, featuring players from 11 different clubs, all but one of which are from the Premier League.

All of the Premier League’s ‘big six’ clubs – Manchester United, Liverpool, Arsenal, Chelsea, Manchester City and Tottenham – are represented in the squad.

Manchester City are the domestic team with the most players included, with five names. Arsenal, Chelsea, Manchester United and Newcastle have three players each, while there are two in from Liverpool, Everton and Tottenham.

Borussia Dortmund are the only overseas club with a player in the England squad as a result of Jude Bellingham’s inclusion, although AC Milan defender Fikayo Tomori was arguably unlucky to miss out. Roma striker Tammy Abraham was also in with a chance but was not chosen.
