With so many world-class players plying their trade in the Premier League week in and week out, it can be rather difficult trying to rank where each of them come in terms of being the best in the division.
Nonetheless, that has not stopped The Telegraph from doing just that as the national media outlet have provided fans with their top 30 players in the division. As to be expected, there are a host of names on the list – with some that can be considered controversial or debatable. However, when there are free bets available, it could be handy using it on a team that features one or more of these individuals.
When taking a look at the top 10 players on the list, it perhaps is not a surprise that it features a number of stars from both Liverpool and Manchester City. Of course, with how the two teams finished the Premier League campaign last season, it perhaps isn’t a shock to see so many of them.
Furthermore, Manchester United and Tottenham Hotspur each have players feature, although they might be some of the most obvious to fans.
10. Thiago Alcantara – despite having only joined Liverpool in the summer transfer window, Thiago Alcantara has immediately made the list after just a handful of appearances.
9. Alisson Becker – arguably one of the best goalkeepers in the world, the Brazilian is considered the best in the Premier League.
8. Raheem Sterling – The Manchester City winger had a poor campaign last season, but he has continued to impress on the whole.
7. Bruno Fernandes – The main man for Manchester United, Fernandes could – and probably – should be higher on this list as he has been crucial for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side.
6. Son Heung-min – The Tottenham Hotspur star just misses out on the top 5, however it could also be argued that he could be included in the top five after the 2020 he has had on the pitch.
5. Saido Mane – Sadio Mane firmly deserves a place in the top five, but he could have been ranked higher as he is arguably one of the most important members of Jurgen Klopp’s squad.
4. Mohamed Salah – Almost the exact same thing about Sadio Mane could be mentioned about Mohamed Salah to be honest.
3. Harry Kane – Perhaps one of the best strikers that England and Tottenham have been able to call upon in years, Harry Kane comes third in this list.
2. Virgil van Dijk – There is no denying that Virgil van Dijk is one of the best defenders in the world and his contributions to Liverpool since joining them have made them one of the best football teams in the world.
1. Kevin De Bruyne – The Belgian playmaker has been named The Telegraph’s number one player in the Premier League. He is arguably the best midfielder in the world and any team would surely love to have him bossing things in the middle as he can create a goalscoring chance from almost nothing.
