Our Premier League Underdog XI
The English Premier League is widely regarded as one of the most competitive and exciting football leagues in the world, We often hear about ‘the big six’, the giants who dominate English football year after year & their superstar players who make the headlines every week. We wanted to take a look at and pay tribute to ’The Other 14’. The term gained popularity in recent years as these 14 clubs have sought to push for greater financial equality and competition within the league. These clubs often face challenges in competing with the financial resources and squad depth of the Big Six, yet still going toe-to-toe with the Big 6 giants every week, the term "The Other 14" is used to highlight the unique challenges faced by these clubs in the Premier League.
The players in these teams may not have the same level of fame and glory as their counterparts in the big six, but that doesn't mean they're any less skilled. In fact, many of them have been making significant impacts on the league this season, displaying an exceptional level of talent and development that deserves recognition.
That's why we've put together a list of the best starting eleven players from each of the other 14 teams. These players have been nothing short of outstanding this season, playing with passion, grit, and determination to make their mark on the league.

The Big Six clubs may have more resources and higher expectations, but The Other 14 have proven time and again that they are more than capable of causing upsets and shaking up the league table. However, we must remember that football is not just about the numbers, but it's also about the passion and entertainment it brings to its fans. So whether you support a Big Six club, one of The Other 14, or any other team in the world, it's the spirit of the game that counts. 
Are there anyone we missed? Who do you think deserved to be in The Other 14 starting XI?
