As we approach the 25 match mark in the premier league there has been many star performers for each team, I believe there have been a few players in each position that have stood out so below is my rankings:
Formation: 4-4-2
Goalkeeper: I believe the award for the best keeper is going to be between the 2 shot stoppers in Manchester, New signing Ederson has been incredible with 34 saves this season he has been amazing and is key to City being in the top spot in the premier league. He also has an amazing 10 clean sheets. The other is the cat-like Spanish man, De Gea, the man has 14 clean sheets, and an average of 0.67 goals conceded a game which is incredible. Furthermore he has a claim rate of 92% which is again another incredible stat.
Fullbacks: I have to say the Man united full backs have shone this season and have looked consistent all year, Valencia, a PL expert at the age of 32 doesn’t look to be slowing down, instead he looks to be getting better, with 20 games under his belt this season he has looked strong in each game, he has made 20 tackles with a rate of 32%, however to make up for that he has made 25 interceptions, 56 clearances and four blocks. Ashley Young however has made 18 appearances and whilst in the team United have only lost 3 matches, one of them against the team I support Huddersfield in one of the biggest upsets of the year.
Centre-Halves: I believe the best two centre halves have been Schindler and Otamendi, Schindler has made 23 appearances and has made 45 tackles with a 51% rate of success, he made a furthermore 51 interceptions, 166 clearances and 17 blocks. Otamendi has played 23 games and has been a strong part of Man City’s 22 game unbeaten streak. He has an astonishing 92% pass accuracy and has a 51% success in aerial duels. Two other contenders are Mustafi and Phil Jones, both have been incredibly strong and a backbone in both defences respectfully.
The midfielders should be out some time this week. Do you agree with my opinion, if so please tell me below!!!
