England and English players are linked with some of the world’s best club football. The English Premier League is home to some of the most successful and rich football clubs in the world. In terms of the country, several talented footballers have emerged over the years from various academies situated throughout the country.
Premier League teams are home to the most well-known names in English football. Although there are a few names from outside the Premier League, this season’s top 5 English footballers are all Premier League players.
Reece James – 7.27
This season, Chelsea’s Reece James has been one of their better players. The London-based club may not have the best possible outcome for the Premier League title right now, but it has shown consistency. The defenders’ solid defensive shifts have played a big role in this. Reece James, on the other hand, has proven to be a valuable asset in the attack.
Injury has hampered James’ season, but he has bounced back well. During his time with Chelsea, he made 26 appearances in all competitions. He has six goals and seven assists, which are excellent statistics for a defender.
Harry Kane – 7.34
Harry Kane may be in the top five in the Premier League this season based on ratings, but he has had a mixed season so far. He had a bad start to the season due to rumors of a move to Manchester City, which made him extremely unhappy. Kane was absent for a section of pre-season training but chose to stay with Tottenham.
For his club this season, he has made 41 appearances in all competitions. The English player struggled in the first half of the season, but under Antonio Conte, he has regained some of his former form. So far, Kane has 22 goals and six assists, which is far below his usual high level.
Trent Alexander-Arnold – 7.57
Under Jurgen Klopp, Liverpool has been a consistent team, with a number of players performing to their full potential. Trent Alexander-Arnold, a right-back, is one of them, and with each passing season, he improves even more. Alexander-Arnold has helped Liverpool’s recent rise.
From 35 appearances for his club, he has made an incredible 17 assists and scored two goals. If the Reds are to compete for the Premier League and Champions League titles this season, they will need him to keep up his current form.
Ben Chilwell – 7.65
Chelsea have been lacking in service this season, as evidenced by Ben Chilwell’s unfortunate injury. Before a ruptured cruciate ligament ended his season, the English left-back had established himself as the team’s first choice. Injuries have hampered his time at Stamford Bridge, which has been an unfortunate saga.
Chilwell may only play 12 games for his club due to a postponement in pre-season and an injury. Despite having a limited number of chances, he demonstrated his offensive and defensive abilities. He scored three goals and added one assist before being injured.
Kieran Trippier – 7.87
Only Kieran Trippier has had La Liga appearances. Manchester United was said to be interested in bringing him back to the Premier League earlier this summer. Trippier had to wait until winter to take action because it didn’t materialize. Newcastle United wasted no time in bringing the former Burnley defender back to England, supported by their newly gained accumulated wealth.
Including his time in La Liga, the Englishman has appeared in 23 club games this season. Despite rumors of his departure, Simeone had placed his trust in Trippier to carry out his duties. He has two goals in four games for Newcastle, and his performance will be crucial if the Magpies are to avoid relegation.
