Since the commencement of the English Premier League in 1992, seven clubs have shared the 29 league titles among themselves. Namely Manchester United, Blackburn Rovers, Arsenal, Chelsea, Manchester City, Leicester City, and Liverpool.
Eleven players have been privileged to play for two of these clubs when they won the title. The list includes Mark Schwarzer, Robert Huth, Nicolas Anelka, Gael Clichy, Kolo Toure, Henning Beng, Carlos Tevez, and Ashley Cole. Here are the three players who achieved the same feat and are still active in the league:
1. N'golo Kante (Leicester City & Chelsea)
Kante, 30, rose from the third division in France to winning seven titles, including two Premier League, a UEFA Champions League, and a World Cup.
Kante spent only one season at Leicester City, where he won his first trophy, the 2015/16 Premier League title. After scoring one goal and four assists in 37 league games for Claudio Ranieri's side, the defensive midfielder joined Chelsea for £32 million and won his second league title in his first season.
2. Riyad Mahrez (Leicester City & Manchester City)
Mahrez was Kante's teammate at Leicester City, with a similar journey to stardom. The 30-year-old Algerian winger now has three Premier League titles, having won one at Leicester and two at Manchester City.
Mahrez registered 17 goals and 11 assists in his first league-winning season at Leicester City before joining Man City after two seasons for £60m. He recorded seven goals and four assists to win a second EPL title in his first season at the Etihad Stadium. He won the third last season, contributing nine goals and six assists.
3. James Milner (Manchester City & Liverpool)
Milner is the first of the players on this list to win the Premier League trophy but is the last to win the title with two different clubs. He has won three EPL titles (two with Man City and one with Liverpool).
He won the 2011/12 Premier League trophy at City, contributing four goals and five assists in 26 games. Milner won his second in 2014, scoring a goal and four assists. He achieved this feat when he joined Liverpool, winning the 2019/20 EPL trophy with two goals and two assists in 22 games.
