With seventeen clubs reportedly located in different neighborhoods of England's capital city, London is widely considered the capital of English football.
Only seven out of seventeen clubs in the city play in the English Premier League, and I will be doing a ranking of the top five clubs in the city of London by their performance in the EPL match week-8 fixtures.
5. Arsenal FC
Arsenal host Crystal Palace in a London derby at Emirates Stadium and the match ended in a 2-2 scoreline for both sides, thanks to a 95th-minute equalizer from the club's 30-year-old French striker, Alexandre Lacazette.
4. Crystal Palace
Though Patrick Vieira's men were the best side against Arsenal and almost took all three points from their city rivals, they were denied victory by Alexandre Lacazette's late-minute equalizer.
Tottenham Hotspur came from behind to secure a 3-2 victory in their EPL match against Newcastle United. The match saw goals from three Spurs players, Ndombele, Harry Kane, and Son.

The match week-8 fixtures of the premier league saw West Ham United pay a visit to Everton FC and the match ended with a 1-0 victory in favor of the London club.
