Who is the best player in the Premier League? There are a number of players that can lay claim to that title, Virgil van Dijk was fantastic last season when Liverpool finished second in the Premier League. As he ended up winning the PFA Player of the Year award and is the favourite to win this year’s Ballon d’Or.
Sadio Mane and Mohamed Salah are also in the equation, while Raheem Sterling, Sergio Aguero and Kevin de Bruyne are all world-class players.
FourFourTwo have tried their hand at ranking the 101 best players in England’s top tier, they’ve used the current form of every player, as well as their past achievements, in order to make their list.
And here’s how the top 50 looks…
So Van Dijk is crowned the best player in the Premier League at the moment and deservedly so. He’s been phenomenal since signing for the Reds in 2018 and has played a key role in the club’s transformation into one of the best team’s in the world. Sterling comes in at second while De Bruyne, perhaps controversially, pips Salah to third place.
Laporte is the only other defender in the top 10, while Alexander-Arnold is 12th. United’s summer signing Maguire is ranked 20th, making him the third highest ranked centre-back in the league.
Pogba comes in all the way down at 33 which, for a player of his ability, seems well too low. Rashford has been going through a tough time in the past six months and is only ranked at 40th. There is no room for Norwich ace Teemu Pukki in the top 50, despite his incredible form to start this season.
