    • Full Name: Kevin De Bruyne
    • Date Of Birth: June 28, 1991
    • Club: Manchester City
    • Country: Belgian/British

Kevin De Bruyne of Manchester City and Belgium is a man who is used to the adulation of the fans and media alike. He has been one of the most consistent performers in the English league in recent times and looks like he has no interest in stopping anytime soon.

Kevin de Brunye plays like a German Machine- he has no interest in showing off his skills or wasting time with pretty touches of the ball. Kevin de Bruyne is a relentless forward moving machine and every time he surges forward with the ball it looks like Manchester City is going to score a goal. He seems to have perfected the art of creating chances in football, while also contributing his quota of goals, thus helping his team on the way forward.

2. Adama Traore 

    • Full Name: Adama Traore Diarra
    • Date Of Birth: January 25, 1996
    • Club: Wolverhampton Wanderers
    • Nationality: Spanish/Malian

Adama Traore of the giant-killing Wolverhampton Wanderers has improved his game so much that he threatens to steal the spotlight away from everyone this term. We already knew that he had the pace and power to take the ball on the run at his feet, we also knew he had the skill to turn defenders inside out like clothes hanged outside in the sun to dry. But just running around on the field is never enough, and so we are pleased to see him adding goals and assists to his game.

Furthermore, we see him standing tall in the big games, against top opponents in the league, and performing in diverse positions as well. Adama Traore can play as a right midfielder, attacking midfielder operating from the center, right-winger, left-winger, and even as a striker. Will he continue to play at Wolves in the near future? Let us wait and see. 

Riyad Mahrez

3. Riyad Mahrez 

    • Full Name: Riyad Kareem Mahrez
    • Date Of Birth: February 21, 1991
    • Club: Manchester City
    • Nationality: Algerian/Moroccan/French

Riyad Mahrez of Manchester City and Algeria might not even be considered a certified first-team player at the Club, but the man certainly makes the difference at Manchester City. Maybe he is been used as an impact player at Manchester City in an energy-saving system by Pep Guardiola. Anyways, he has not failed to shine whenever he has taken to the field, and his recent form of producing an assist almost every game has proven that the man who produced the eye-catching, title-winning performances at Leicester City is still very much around.

Ricardo Pereira

4. Ricardo Pereira

    • Date Of Birth: October 6, 1993

He has been a steadying anchor for Leicester city with his pace, skill, and work-rate. As an individual Ricardo Pereira is difficult to get past; he does not lack strength, pace, or power, and he reads situations well, enabling him to position himself well in order to make timely interventions. Going forward, Ricardo Pereira has a very good passing ability and keeps the foxes moving forward from his right-back position. He has the skill to get past almost any defender if a one on one situation arises, and his crosses have profited Leicester City so often.

Right here we have an African player considers as one of the best players in the premier league, this great football star takes on the midfield role both for his premier league team and his National team. This Senegal lad began his career in the French countryside with Metz, after which he was later transferred to the Australian Bundesliga side “Red Bull Salzburg” in 2012. Later on, following his great performance, he moved on to the premier league side “Liverpool” in the year 2016 after a transfer fee of £34 million is being made.

On many an occasion this season, Senegalese star has been Liverpool’s savior; scoring vital goals that helped them keep pace with eventual winners Liverpool, who sometimes went rampaging. Good with both feet, strong in the air, and quick on the run, Sadio Mane has been a vital part of Jurgen Klopp’s side this season, and no doubt, he is an integral part of their plans for the near future.

With a goal haul of 22 in the league previous season, he is a fellow recipient of the Golden Shoe award for the season 2018/ 2019, along with Liverpool team-mate Mohammed Salah and Arsenal new-boy Pierre Emerick Aubameyang.

Sadio Mane was also nominated for this season’s PFA Player of the Year Award, and even though he did not win it, he went on to win the Champions League with Liverpool.

Mohamed Salah

6. Mohamed Salah

    • Date of Birth: 15th of June 1992
    • Club: Liverpool

Mohammed Salah comes as one of the best players in the premier league following his astonishing performance in the premier league. Salah hails from Egypt, which implies that we have an African player as one of the best players in the premier league. This famous star has stated earlier was born on the 15th of June, 1992 in Egypt.

Mohammed Salah began his professional football career in the year 2010 as he joined the Egyptian premier league side “El Mokawloom” (a Cairo Club), later on, he departed the from the Egyptian league to join the Switzerland team named “Basel” for a hidden transfer fee.

Mohammed Salah, while playing with his Basel team, he led the team to victory as they won the league title in his debut season, and with such an outstanding performance from the Egyptian lad, he was awarded the SAFP Golden Player award in that same year. with improvements and development coming in for this star, he was beaconed upon from the premier league side “Chelsea” of which he departed the Switzerland team to play for the premier league team for a transfer fee of  £11 million.

However, his tenure with Chelsea didn’t go well as he was rarely featured in his debut season and he was loaned out to the Italian side Florentina and later to Roma where he was signed permanently for a transfer fee of £15 million. Here in the Italian league, Salah proved to be fruitful and was later called upon by the premier league side “Liverpool” for £36.9 million in the year 2017. So far his spell in Liverpool has fantastic and spellbound. A great player churning out results after results, he doesn’t disappoint when needed.

Wilfred Ndidi

7. Wilfred Ndidi

    • Full Name: Onyinye Wilfred Ndidi
    • Date Of Birth: December 16, 1996
    • Club: Leceister City
    • Nationality: Nigerian

Wilfred Ndidi has proven himself to be the steadying factor in the Leicester City outfit. He is not the most skillful player in the team, nor the highest scorer, not even the most popular. But if you are going to compete in a match and ultimately a league then you need to win and keep possession of the ball. That is a thing that Wilfred Ndidi excels at doing. As a matter of fact, nobody has been more consistent at making successful tackles and interceptions in the English Premier League in recent times than the Nigerian International. His presence has been of unspeakable importance for the club and when he has not played Leicester City tends to crumble like a house of cards. He has been a key factor in the success of the club recently.


Virgil Van Dijk In Action

8. Virgil Van Dyke

    • Full Name: Virgil Van Dyke
    • Date Of Birth: 8th July 1991
    • Club: Liverpool
    • Nationality: Netherlands

Van Dyke caught the eye of the Liverpool management while playing for Southampton, and was quickly brought in for a club-record 75 million pounds, making him the World’s most expensive defender. He brought in steel and solidity to the Liverpool back-line, making them the strongest defense in the league for the 2018/ 2019 season. His strength, balance, and ball-winning abilities helped Liverpool keep 18 clean sheets, and concede only 20 goals in the English Premier League this season.

Van Dyke was voted the PFA player of the year for the season 2018/ 2019, an accolade he was fully expected to win, with the Liverpool defender priced by at 1/3 to win. No doubt, he was voted by a few attackers who found it hard to penetrate his defense and so acknowledge his abilities.

9. Jack Grealish 

    • Full Name: Jack Peter Grealish
    • Date Of Birth: September 10th, 1995
    • Club: Aston Villa
    • Nationality: English

Jack Grealish came from the lower division to grab English football by the throat. The Aston Villa number 10 has been absolutely sensational this term and has proven that a person can come from nowhere to become a king (or at least a Noble) Anywhere. His speed and positioning make him the main danger-man for his club, but it is his passing and dribbling that make him so much of a handful for defenses. Jack Grealish and his teammates have come to stay, and it is in your best interest to be wary of them.

10. James Maddison 

    • Full Name: James Daniel Maddison
    • Date Of Birth: November 23rd, 1996
    • Club: Leicester City
    • Nationality: English

Despite all the hype, there are not many Englishmen who can dare take on two defenders with the ball at their feet. Anyway, James Maddison is one of the few. He plays football with flair and purpose and likes to make runs just behind the main strikers. His control of the ball is immaculate, and he is only interested in going in one direction: forward! James Maddison has contributed immensely to what Leicester city football club has achieved in recent times, and although we honestly doubt if Leicester city will be able to keep hold of him for much longer, he remains a key factor in the realization of their dreams for the future.
