With yet another international break under our burgeoning belts, focus is on the return of the Premier League. So how about a feature that makes the transition a little smoother, and combines the best of both worlds?

Here, we rank the top 20 Premier League players by how many minutes they have played in all competitions for both club and country since June 1. Featured in the EFL Cup? Wonderful. Given a minute in a Europa League qualifying play-off? Excellent. Handed a start in the Gold Cup or the European Under-21 Championship? Perfect.

Everton and Tottenham players feature more often than any other club (both 4), while Manchester United (3), Chelsea (2) and Liverpool (2) also feature prominently. Burnley and Brighton have as many players as Arsenal in the top 20.
