Why is it entertaining?
Please note Messi nor Renaldo are apart of that league. That fact in itself makes my point. The top players of EPL are not dominated by English players which is another reason why its very entertaining. All other leagues have this trait, by that I mean they are dominated by "home grown" players for want of a better terminology. Simply put in La Liga (Spanish League), Bundesliga (The German League) and many other leagues the majority of the players who are at the top are products of the that region. EPL offers more than the normal because of its influx of talent from across the globe.
Style of Play
Each country has its own style of play and that dominates majority of the clubs that are apart of that country's league. However EPL is unique as each club asserts its style of play around the talent available. The more talent, the more entertaining the league that's my thought especially when the talent is not focused in one area of the globe.
It can be said that EPL clubs face much more adversity than other clubs that have a core of personnel that are already cultured to what is required. This is because of the fact that domestic players dominate the league thus setting the tone for the clubs. Language alone is a barrier when recruiting players in the EPL. It is a difficult task for a manager in the EPL to form a cohesive unit out of players that have diverse cultures and speak several different languages. When this is achieved it is considered to be real teamwork.
Diversity is key
Lets look at the statistical part of the game. Goals are the embodiment of teamwork and as such lets look at goals first.
