Football Manager Mobile 2017
Manchester United may not have gotten morata and Chelsea probably won't get Alex Sandro, and with the way things are shaping up, it'll be a miracle if Tottenham gets anyone before September. That isn't to say you can't at least pretend to take over them and show their digital boards what you'd be able to do in the league if given the opportunity. Until Sports Interactive releases a new mobile game around late October, Football Manager Mobile 2017 continues to be the best simulation of sports management for Android devices and many Premier League fans will easily sink weeks and months into it with no regrets.

Making Soccer Star
If you're looking for a different type of a football game focused on the Premier League and are willing to look over or outright laugh at unlicensed names like "W. Rooni," Making Soccer Star should be precisely to your liking.

FIFA Mobile Soccer
FIFA is all about the Premier League these days, as evidenced by its recent focus on Hazard, Martial, and a number of its other sponsored stars.

The eternal battle of Pro Evolution Soccer and FIFA translated well to the mobile format, with PES 2017 offering a different, slower, and some would say more realistic take on the concept of a football simulation than FIFA Mobile Soccer does.

Either way, this casual mobile runner is an amusing game and if you prefer an Arsenal-branded take on it, you can find that one on the Google Play Store as well.
Mobile Soccer League
If you're interested in authenticity in terms of licenses but would still prefer a more cartoonish take on football, Mobile Soccer League is the game you definitely ought to try as this curious creation attempts to bring the best of both worlds into a single package, and also comes with a dedicated Premier League mode.
