Which Premier League side has more World Cup players than any other club?

Fifa World Cup Brazil

One of the Premier League's giants is set to have more World Cup players than anyone else - but is it Chelsea, Arsenal, Manchester United, or Liverpool?

Chelsea have more players scheduled to appear at this summer's World Cup than any other football club.

The Londoners have a massive 18 players in the squads of the national sides that have qualified for Brazil.

They have two more than their nearest rivals Manchester United and Bayern Munich, who both have 16 World Cup bound players on their books, while surprisingly, Napoli are next in line with 14, more than the likes of Barcelona, Real Madrid and Juventus. Arsenal and Liverpool are further down the list with 12 each.

Here is the list of the best represented clubs in Brazil:

1. Chelsea (18)

2. Manchester United, Bayern Munich (16)

3. Napoli (14)

4. Barcelona, Real Madrid, Manchester City (13)

5. Juventus, Arsenal, Liverpool (12)

6. Atletico Madrid (11)

7. Porto, Inter Milan, AC Milan, Zenit (10)

8. Borussia Dortmund, Paris Saint-Germain (8)

9. Southampton, Schalke, Roma (7)

Chelsea's contingent is spread across a variety of nationalities. There is a quartet of players hoping to feature for hosts Brazil: Oscar, David Luiz, Ramires and Willian. Fernando Torres and Cesar Azpilicueta are in the defending champions squad, while English pair Frank Lampard and Gary Cahill are key men for their country. Belgian stars Eden Hazard, Thibaut Courtois and Romelu Lukaku are three of the most promising young players in the world and will surely impress. Chelsea also have Nigerian trio John Obi Mikel, Victor Moses and Kenneth Omeuro primed for the tournament.

The rest of Chelsea's World Cup selections are Cameroon's Samuel Eto'o, Germany's Andre Schurrle, Ghana's Christian Atsu and Holland's Patrick van Aanholt.

This figure could go up depending on whether standby players are called into squads to replace injured players, but also includes players that are part of preliminary squads that are yet to be streamlined for the competition.

One thing's for sure, there'll be a lot of matches with Chelsea stars featuring.
