Based on the website WhoScored’s evaluation in each match, we could know the overall performance of the players in the Premier League this season so far.


5. Karl Darlow (Newcastle) - 6.79 rating

3. Nick Pope (Burnley) - 6.83 rating

2. Illan Meslier (Leeds) - 6.92 rating

1. Emiliano Martinez (Aston Villa) - 7.05 rating

It's hard to believe that Alisson, Ederson, de Gea, Lloris, Leno and Mendy are not present in this list, with Martinez in the lead.

Right-back Defender

5. Serge Aurier (Tottenham) - 7.03 rating

4. Matthew Cash (Aston Villa) - 7.09 rating

3. Aaron Wan-Bissaka (MU) - 7.13 rating

2. Reece James (Chelsea) - 7.18 rating

1. Joao Cancelo (Man City) - 7.43 rating

Alexander-Arnold may not be in the ranking, but obviously, English football teams do not lack excellent right-back defenders this season, even when Cancelo is in the first position.

Center-back Defender

5. Liam Cooper (Leeds) - 7.09 rating

4. Wesley Fofana (Leicester) - 7.16 rating

3. John Stones (Man City) - 7.18 rating

2. Cesar Azpilicueta (Chelsea) - 7.22 rating

1. Kurt Zouma (Chelsea) - 7.22 rating

Chelsea are keeping a clean sheet so it wouldn't be a surprise if their defensive players get ahead. And if Stones revived in this season, it would be shocking when City's Ruben Dias ranked 13th.

Left-back Defender

5. Luke Shaw (MU) - 7.07 rating

4. James Justin (Leicester) - 7.11 rating

3. Solly March (Brighton) - 7.13 rating

2. Lucas Digne (Everton) - 7.17 rating

1. Oleksandr Zinchenko (Man City) - 7.18 rating

Nobody thinks either Shaw is MU's best left-back defender this season or Man City's Zinchenko is in the lead.

Defensive Midfielder

5. Declan Rice (West Ham) - 7.04 rating

4. Scott McTominay (MU) - 7.24 rating

3. Paul Pogba (MU) - 7.27 rating

2. Youri Tielemans (Leicester) - 7.27 rating

1. Tomas Soucek (West Ham) - 7.38 rating

Although Soucek is completely a brand new name, this midfielder has scored eight goals in his position, while his teammate - Rice - is also doing great in West Ham.

Center Midfielder

5. Pascal Gross (Brighton) - 7.17 rating

4. Mason Mount (Chelsea) - 7.56 rating

3. Rodri (Man City) - 7.58 rating

2. Kevin De Bruyne (Man City) - 7.58 rating

1. Ilkay Gundogan (Man City) - 7.66 rating

According to the statistics, apparently, Man City is the king in this season. Because when it comes to the midfield area, The Citizens is simply second to none.

Attacking Midfielder

5. Emile Smith Rowe (Arsenal) - 6.76 rating

4. Ross Barkley (Aston Villa) - 7.00 rating

3. Tanguy Ndombele (Tottenham) - 7.03 rating

2. James Maddison (Leicester) - 7.29 rating

1. Bruno Fernandes (MU) - 7.50 rating

Considering that Fernandes could break Lampard's record for most midfield goals in one Premier League season, it is reasonable when he is in the first position.

Right Midfielder

5. Mohamed Salah (Liverpool) - 7.03 rating

4. Bukayo Saka (Arsenal) - 7.36 rating

3. Adama Traore (Wolves) - 7.37 rating

2. Riyad Mahrez (Man City) - 7.54 rating

1. James Rodriguez (Everton) - 7.63 rating

Salah is in the race for the European Golden Shoe in the Premier League, but the statistics show that he is not even the best right midfielder, compared to James Rodriguez, in Merseyside.

Left Midfielder

5. Marcus Rashford (MU) - 7.28 rating

4. Sadio Mane (Liverpool) - 7.36 rating

3. Raheem Sterling (Man City) - 7.41 rating

2. Heung Min Son (Tottenham) - 7.43 rating

1. Jack Grealish (Aston Villa) - 7.49 rating

It’s quite a fascinating competition. But most of all, Sterling and Mane also remind us all that we wouldn’t have to go through a disappointed Premier League season as some expected.

Center Attacker

5. Jamie Vardy (Leicester) - 7.24 rating

4. Dominic Calvert-Lewin (Everton) - 7.25 rating

3. Christian Benteke (Crystal Palace) - 7.27 rating

2. Gabriel Jesus (Man City) - 7.27 rating

1. Harry Kane (Tottenham) - 7.78 rating

The leading position of Kan is undeniable when he and Salah (17 goals) had 13 assists, which is more than any other players’.
