Which Premier League team will have most players at Euro 2024?

With all the squads confirmed, Sports Mole finds out which Premier League clubs will have the most men participating at Euro 2024.

Each nation competing at Euro 2024 has now registered their final squad with UEFA, and players from clubs across Europe and beyond are now set to represent their country on the continental stage.

The 24 teams involved in Germany could all select a maximum of 26 men - of which three must be goalkeepers - to fight for glory at the 17th European Championship.

Drawn from teams far and wide, most of these players earn a living in one of Europe's top 10 leagues, though some ply their trade in Saudi Arabia or MLS; others in England's second-tier Championship or Italy's Serie B.

It is already well documented that Crystal Palace can boast more representatives in the England squad than any other club, but - loanees excluded - which Premier League side will have most men participating overall?

Here, Sports Mole finds out.



Manchester City (13)

Even with Norwegian goal machine Erling Haaland missing out, the new - and old - Premier League champions top the pile by a clear margin, demonstrating their sheer strength in depth.

Pep Guardiola's star-studded squad contribute a trio of players to Portugal's Euros selection - Ruben Dias, Bernardo Silva and little-used midfielder Matheus Nunes - a further three to England's, and a couple to both Belgium and Croatia.

Spain stalwart Rodri joins defensive duo Manuel Akanji and Nathan Ake in Germany too, so several City players' influence at these finals will surely be significant.

Though the surprise omission of Jack Grealish slightly diminishes their tally, last year's Champions League winners still tie their final victims Inter Milan for the most players from a single club at Euro 2024.



Arsenal (11)

Again runners-up to Manchester City in this list, following back-to-back second-place finishes in the Premier League, Arsenal have contributed three men to England's Euros selection, with two being almost certain starters.

Midfield fulcrum Declan Rice and wing wizard Bukayo Saka join back-up goalkeeper Aaron Ramsdale in Gareth Southgate's final squad, while the rest of the Gunners' representatives are a diverse bunch.

Kai Havertz is in contention to lead the hosts' attack, Oleksandr Zinchenko will captain Ukraine, David Raya has been handed the number one jersey for Spain, while Jorginho is back with Italy to defend their continental crown.

Jakub Kiwior (Poland), Leandro Trossard (Belgium) and French defender William Saliba - the latter of whom could start for Les Bleus in Dayot Upamecano's injury-enforced absence - are all present too.



Liverpool (nine)

While Man City's contingent has a Portuguese flavour, Liverpool have sent a Dutch trio to the Euros this year: Cody Gakpo, Ryan Gravenberch and imperious captain Virgil van Dijk.

Furthermore, Andy Robertson (Scotland) and Dominik Szoboszlai (Hungary) will both captain their nations, meeting in a potentially crucial Group A clash on June 23.

With his versatility still causing Southgate more consternation than solving problems, Trent Alexander-Arnold joins fellow Red Joe Gomez in the English 26.

Elsewhere, Ibrahima Konate could start in France's back four, and Diogo Jota is one of several attack-minded Portuguese players jostling for selection.



Manchester United (eight)

Having scored seven times in qualifying, Man United midfielder Scott McTominay will represent one of Scotland's greatest goal threats in Germany, given their lack of firepower up front.

A scorer in the most recent Euros final, Luke Shaw has won his battle for fitness and could even start on England's left flank; breakthrough star and FA Cup hero Kobbie Mainoo is also aiming to start for the Three Lions.

Meanwhile, United skipper and Portugal playmaker Bruno Fernandes is joined by flying full-back Diogo Dalot, who came out of a difficult club campaign with some credit.

Finally, Danish duo Christian Eriksen and Rasmus Hojlund collectively represent the past, present and future for their nation; despite his lack of first-team action, reserve goalkeeper Altay Bayindir may still start for Turkey.



Brentford (six)

Linking up with Hojlund and former Bees star Eriksen, Brentford's six-man Euro party is headlined by a quartet of Denmark players.

Mathias Jorgensen, Mikkel Damsgaard, Mathias Jensen and captain Christian Norgaard are all hoping to improve on a dramatic journey to the semi-finals three years ago.

Danish coach Thomas Frank has also sent Ivan Toney to Germany, after the set-piece specialist was selected as one of two back-ups to England's undisputed line leader Harry Kane - incidentally, ex-Brentford man Ollie Watkins is the other.

In addition, the London club's goalkeepers - Thomas Strakosha and Mark Flekken - are both on national duty this summer, for Albania and the Netherlands respectively.



How do other English teams fare?

Outside the top five Premier League teams in these rankings, Brighton & Hove Albion, Chelsea, Fulham and Crystal Palace are next up with five players apiece - in addition to their England quartet, the Eagles' defensive rock Joachim Andersen will feature for Denmark.

Aston Villa, Tottenham Hotspur, West Ham United, Leicester City and Newcastle United all have four representatives at Euro 2024; Championship playoff winners Southampton join Bournemouth, Everton and Wolverhampton Wanderers on three.

In the controversial absence of former Belgium number one Thibaut Courtois, Nottingham Forest's Matz Sels could start between the posts for Domenico Tedesco's team - but the Tricky Trees have no other men taking part this summer.

Only top-flight new boys Ipswich Town do not have a single player involved at these Euros, while several Championship clubs do.

Norwich City have three; Watford, Bristol City, West Bromwich Albion and freshly-demoted Burnley have two; Leeds United, Luton Town, Sunderland and Hull City all have one man to follow throughout the weeks ahead.
