How would the West Ham United starting XI look made up only of local players?
Hopewiser have conducted a study generating a starting XI for each Premier League club using only local players, and it turns out east London is brimming with talent.
A proximity tool was used to identify clubs within a 30 mile radius of where Premier League and Championship players were born.
The local players have to be included in their primary or secondary position, while FIFA ratings were used to give the closest clubs first pick of the better players.
West Ham United would pick up top defenders from Chelsea and Manchester United while a couple of current first-team players would also make the cut in their revised line-up.
