The Premier League currently has five representatives from Switzerland, with Arsenal’s Granit Xhaka the highest profile – that’s what happens when £35million is wasted on you – to Gelson Fernandes’ forgetable brother, Edimilson, at West Ham.

But how do the current crop of five rank in comparison to their fellow countryman that have donned the shores of English Premier League before them?

So there you have it, if you’re an amusingly bad Swiss centre-back, there’s always room for you at Arsenal.

And don’t worry, no one will ever understand why a man of Gokhan Inler’s talents flopped in a season where Leicester City won the Premier League; football is broken.
