All-Time Unique Internationals in the Premiership

If you've been coming to the blog for long enough, you may remember the unique international posts for last season and this season in the Premiership. The idea was to identify players that are the only one from their home country represented in the league.

In this post I've taken the idea a step further and have listed the All-Time Unique Internationals since the Premiership began in it's current format in 1992. These players are the only ones from their home nation to ever play in the Premier League.
