Question nobody asked - How many players have leaggue medals outside of Man Utd and Chelsea?

Judging by the amount of players with league winner's medals outside of Chelsea and Manchester United that are still playing in the Premier League, Arsenal aren't the only ones who don't seem to know how to win.

Gael Clichy (right) is the only player in the Arsenal squad who has a Premier League winner's medal and he is one of just 19 players with that honour outside of Stamford Bridge and Old Trafford.

The majority of those are on Man City's books, with Wayne Bridge, Carlos Tevez, Kolo Toure, Patrick Vieira, Shaun Wright-Phillips and, surprisingly, goalkeeper Stuart Taylor. Liverpool (Glen Johnson and Joe Cole), Everton (Phil Neville and Louis Saha), Stoke City (Eidur Gudjohnsen, on loan at Fulham, and Robert Huth) and Newcastle (Alan Smith and Sol Campbell) all have two players who have winner's medals.

Making up the rest are Robert Pires (Aston Villa), Damien Duff (Fulham), Kieran Richardson (Sunderland) and William Gallas (Spurs).
