Premier League 2019/20 ongoing matches until before the pause because of the COVID-19 has gone more than 3/4 of the way. It is a long way to choose the best top players from each team.
1. Liverpool – Jordan Henderson
An excellent lineup with many excellent top players, Liverpool has many stars who are in very high form like Sadio Mane or Virgil van Dijk, but the best person in the Kop squad is Captain Henderson.
Not too outstanding in terms of goals or assists, but Henderson is really a leader in the middle of Liverpool. He always pushes his teammates to go ahead even in the toughest matches, helping this team to be unbeaten in the long run.
The performances against Tottenham and Man City are just a few examples of Henderson’s outstanding performances deserving listed in top players this season. TalkSPORT journalists Adrian Durham and Darren Bent nominated the captain of Liverpool for the Player of the Season award.
2. Man City – Kevin De Bruyne
De Bruyne is one of the best central midfielders in the world today and many agree with the statement that the Belgian star is the No. 1 midfielder in the Premier League today.
De Bruyne continued to shine despite Man City’s team playing poorly in this season. The Belgian has 16 assists since the start of the season, topping the list of best assisters. Not only that, De Bruyne always makes the goalkeepers terrified of the dangerous and powerful long shots that he can create.
3. Leicester – Ricardo Pereira
“Foxes” are third in the rankings and will almost certainly get a place in the top 4 when the season ends. There are many players in the Leicester squad that play well this season, such as striker Vardy, who is leading the list of goals scored in the Premier League.
Vardy has 17 goals in the Premier League, but he only scored 2 goals in 2020. Therefore, in terms of stability throughout the beginning of the season, Pereira deserves to be better than his teammate. The Portuguese defender has a very high average score from the beginning of the season, 7.5 points according to WhoScored statistics, the highest in the Leicester lineup.
4. Chelsea – Mateo Kovacic
Frank Lampard deserves praise for giving some youngsters a chance to shine in Chelsea’s colors this season. However, Kovacic midfielder is clearly the most prominent player in the Chelsea squad from the beginning of the season.
The Croatian has not been truly outstanding last season but has shown exactly why Chelsea spent money on him from Real Madrid. With stability in midfield, now Kovacic has become an essential part of Lampard’s squad.
5. Manchester United – Aaron Wan-Bissaka
Man Utd have done well in the transfer market this season, all five signings of the “Red Devils” are helping the team better and it seems Man Utd has enough strength to compete in the top 4 Premier League.
Wan-Bissaka maintains a high level of performance throughout the season. The right-back was signed from Crystal Palace for £ 45 million last summer and, along with center-back Harry Maguire, helped stabilize the defense for Man Utd.
Wan-Bissaka played well in both United’s victories against Man City in the Premier League, he “captured” Raheem Sterling in both matches, through which Jamie Carragher had to praise the 22-year-old as a “defender”. the best one on one in the world ”.
6. Wolves – Adama Traore
The Wolves squad has many top players, but the most prominent top players this season is Adama Traore, witnessing his performance on the pitch, many comparing him to the Ferrari on the track.
The Spaniard used to be a City scare when the “Wolves” won the defending champion twice this season. Liverpool coach Klopp when talking about Traore also admitted that “it is impossible to stop him in many situations”.
7. Sheffield United – Dean Henderson
Last year Dean Henderson was the Sheffield United Player of the Year, making a significant contribution to the promotion of this team. This season, the young English goalkeeper continued to stand out and remain solid in the goal of Sheffield United.
Currently, Henderson has kept 10 clean sheets in the Premier League this season and only Burnley’s Nick Pope has owned bigger clean sheets.
Before football halted because of COVID-19, Henderson was supposed to replace Jordan Pickford for the number one position in England. Henderson will return to Old Trafford in the summer and challenge David de Gea’s place in the Man Utd squad.
8. Tottenham – Young Lo Celso
A difficult season for Tottenham with many injuries and poor performance. Indeed to speak of excellence, perhaps in Tottenham’s lineup, there is not a truly stable player throughout the season.
Lo Celso has just moved to Tottenham since the beginning of the season and it looks like Tottenham fans are asking the club to build a lineup around the Argentine. Lo Celso works hard in defense and is a major threat when joining the attack.
9. Arsenal – Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang
Arsenal went through ups and downs season, even replaced the coach, but there was one player who always played well from the beginning of the season, the striker Aubameyang. The Gabon, who scored 20 goals for Arsenal in all competitions, is currently second only to Jamie Vardy in the competition list of the Premier League Golden Boot.
Without Aubameyang’s dazzling performance, Arsenal would certainly be a lot worse. Aubameyang’s current contract is only 18 months old and the “Gunners”- top players, are keen on Gabon to renew his contract soon before the end of this season. Otherwise, Arsenal may have to sell Aubameyang in the Summer.
10. Burnley – James Tarkowski
There were some tough times for Burnley earlier this season but a great performance with seven unbeaten matches brought them to 10th on the table. The Clarets have conceded only three goals in those seven matches despite facing strong teams like Manchester United, Arsenal and Tottenham.
Captain Ben Mee and James Tarkowski are Burnley’s center-back pair, and although both deserve to be voted one of the best top players of the team, however, Tarkowski stands out a bit more, he has an average score of 7.11, higher than Mee’s 6.88 according to WhoScored’s statistics.
