Sting Newz Web Desk: A new study has found English players face a greater struggle for playing time in the Premier League compared to Spanish and French players in La Liga and Ligue 1 respectively.

The CIES Football observatory calculated the percentage of league minutes played since the start of the season, and discovered opportunities for English players were most limited at Watford (nine per cent of minutes played by English players), Chelsea (16 per cent), Man City (17 per cent) and Arsenal (23 per cent).

But following England’s laboured win over minnows Malta, the most significant finding is the lack of playing time for English footballers in the Premier League compared to rival nationalities in their respective domestic divisions.
