At the end of the first leg of the 1/8 round of this season’s Champions League, Arsenal and Man City both lost at home, facing the risk of early elimination.

The picture of the English Premier League in the European arena is tinged with gloom.

Arsenal are often eliminated in the 1/8 round, while Man City rarely makes it past the group stage.

Attractive matches in the Premier League cannot hide the inferiority in strength between English clubs compared to teams in other countries.

To explain the decline of English football teams, a number of sports writers from major European newspapers have made their own comments.

Writer Diego Torres of El Pais newspaper (Spain) believes that current English clubs have a poor playing mentality.

From Belgium, HLN writer Kristof Terreur said that playing too freely is the weakness of English clubs.

Chelsea is considered a team that integrates with the playing style of European football.

Writer Filippo Ricci of Gazzetta dello Sport (Italy) goes deeper, saying that the problem lies at the root: English football or English clubs do not create their own style.

Julien Laurens of Le Parisien newspaper (France) emphasized that the lack of a winter break is also the reason why English teams do not have good results in the Champions League.

The record amount of money received from Premier League television rights will bring a lot of funding to clubs in about five years.

Poor performance in the Champions League or Europa League in the last two seasons is a signal to help English teams make the necessary changes if they want to be recognized as Europe’s top tournament, not just an attractive tournament.
