On February 27, 1999, Aston Villa named the last all-English starting XI in the Premier League – but can you remember it?
Villa, led at the time by John Gregory, were beaten 4-1 at home by Coventry on the day, which perhaps explains why they did not stick with the team for the following game.
But, remarkably, no other club has named an all-English XI since ether.
