The biggest league in the world, the Premier League never fails to amaze. From some of the best players in the world to some of the best managers in the world, English football’s top-flight guarantees entertainment like no other league in the world.
Let us talk a look at the Top 5 MVPs of the season
#5 Kevin De Bruyne | Manchester City | £90 million
Arguably the best player in the Premier League, Kevin De Bruyne’s importance to Pep Guardiola’s Manchester City is immeasurable.
When Manchester City paid a then club record fee of £68 million to Wolfsburg for De Bruyne in 2015, eyebrows were raised. Six seasons later, the Belgium international is regarded by many as one of the best midfielders to have played in the Premier League.
De Bruyne has made 254 appearances in all competitions for Manchester City, scoring 64 goals and providing 105 assists. Well-known for his creativity, passing and vision, the 29-year old has made 24 appearances in the Premier League this season, scoring five goals and providing 11 assists.
#4 Trent Alexander-Arnold | Liverpool | £90 million
Trent Alexander-Arnold and Liverpool might not be enjoying the best of seasons, but there is no denying his quality.
Regarded by many as one of the best right-backs in the world, Alexander-Arnold has played a crucial role in Liverpool’s Champions League and Premier League success under the management of Jurgen Klopp. The 22-year old has excelled with his attacking prowess and crossing ability.
A product of the Liverpool academy, Alexander-Arnold has made 28 appearances in the Premier League this season, scoring one goal and providing four assists.
#3 Raheem Sterling | Manchester City | £90 million
Ever since Pep Guardiola became manager of Premier League giants Manchester City, Raheem Sterling’s star has been on the rise.
Sterling joined Manchester City from Liverpool in 2015 for a fee of €63 million. The England international endured a slow start to his Manchester City career, but Guardiola’s appointment as manager turned his fortunes around. The forward has made 281 appearances in all competitions for the club so far, scoring 113 goals.
Regarded as one of the best wingers in the Premier league, Sterling has once again been in fine form this season. In 26 Premier League games, the 26-year old has scored nine goals and provided six assists, and remains one of Guardiola’s most trusted players.
#2 Mohamed Salah | Liverpool | £90 million
Like Kevin De Bruyne, Mohamed Salah is another former Chelsea player excelling at another Premier League club.
After failing to establish himself at Chelsea, the Egypt international enjoyed stints at Fiorentina and Roma before earning a £38 million move to Liverpool in 2017. Salah hit the ground running, scoring 32 league goals in his first season. He has not looked back.
The 28-year old, who was recently linked with a move to Real Madrid and Barcelona, has once again been in fine goalscoring form this season. In 29 league appearances, Salah has scored 18 goals and provided three assists, with his pace and finishing ability highly valued.
#1 Harry Kane | Tottenham Hotspur | £108 million
One of the best strikers in the world, Harry Kane has shone despite inconsistent performances from Jose Mourinho’s Tottenham Hotspur this season.
There have been suggestions that Kane could depart Tottenham Hotspur this season, with Manchester United and Manchester City linked. It is hard to imagine where Tottenham Hotspur would be this season without some incredible performances from the 27-year in the Premier League.
In 327 appearances for Tottenham Hotspur in all competitions, Kane has scored 215 goals. He has been excellent creatively as well. In 27 Premier League appearances, the England international has scored 17 goals and provided 13 assists.
