- David Silva (Manchester City):
The Spaniard has struggled with injuries and personal issues which have seen him not involved with City lately but no one can take away what he has offered the club. His creativity and composure on the field has Pep Guardiola’s team immensely as he has been the link more than often to connect the attacking players. His performance for the Blues deserves more recognition.
- Raheem Sterling (Manchester City):
The Englishman has been a revolution this season for the Blues as he has been in the goals and assists on a regular basis. Sterling has scored 15 goals and assisted in 6 others this season, providing a lethal threat from the wings and played a big part in City’s title challenge.
- Roberto Firmino (Liverpool):
Firmino is probably one of the underrated players in the league but he has been very important to Liverpool’s cause this season. In the absence of Coutinho, he has done amazingly well to help the attack and also help the team with his high work-rate. He has 13 goals and 8 assists on his name this season.
- David De Gea (Manchester United):
The Spanish goalkeeper is arguably the best goalkeeper in the league if not in the world. He has constantly been spectacular between the sticks for the Red Devils with his sharp saves and amazing reflexes. This season too, he has shown his quality and managed to keep 15 clean sheets, the most in the league this season.
- Leroy Sane (Manchester City):
After a quiet first season, Sane has shown his true potential this season. He has been a chaos to handle on the left with his blistering pace and quick feet. Having 8 goals and 11 assists on his name this season, he has been one of City’s best players and a strong contender to win the Premier League player of the year this season.
- Sergio Aguero (Manchester City):
Having a slow start to the season, Aguero has once again shone in front of the goal. Aguero has done brilliantly as City’s lead striker especially in the absence of Gabriel Jesus and is in the running for the Golden Boot this season with 21 goals.
- Fernandinho (Manchester City):
Fernandinho has been the backbone of City’s midfield this season. He has done very well to protect the back four and let City’s attacking players do their job with full freedom. He has chipped in with crucial goals this season and he surely deserves more credit.
- Harry Kane (Tottenham Hotspur):
The English striker is one of the best strikers in the league and can easily become the best in the world with the form he is in. He has already scored 24 goals this season and has done very well even in the Champions League. He’s no more a one-season wonder and has a very good chance of winning the Premier League player of the year.
- Kevin De Bruyne (Manchester City):
The Belgium midfielder has been simply phenomenal for the Blues this season as he has led them brilliantly on the field. De Bruyne has already scored 7 goals and assisted in 14 others and dictated the terms more than often on the pitch. His contributions for City this season have largely been influential in their success.
- Mohamed Salah (Liverpool):
No one expected Salah to turn out this fabulous a signing last summer. Arriving from Roma, Salah had to step up given the unavailability of Coutinho time and again in the team. It is safe to say that the Egyptian has done more than satisfactorily and been absolutely lethal in front of the goal. He has already scored 21 goals this season, all of them with his left foot and has been a big factor in helping Liverpool stay in the top four.
