5. Ben Davies
Tottenham have been playing for the last two-three seasons, and it is no different this season. Signed by Swansea, Ben Davies struggled to impress many in the past two seasons, being Danny Rose’s backup. But the injury to Rose early this season gave Davies some regular game time, and he has taken it with both hands. In Spurs’ 5-3-2 formation, Davies has settled well as their left wing back, providing more in the attack and helping the side with some crucial passes and assists this season. It is sure going to be a dilemma for Pochettino when Rose is fit again to choose a regular starting left back.
4. Abdoulaye Doucoure
Doucoure was signed in the winter transfer window last year from Rennes, after which he was loaned out to Granada for the rest of the season. Under Walter Mazzarri, Doucoure didn’t get as many starts, but things change when Marcos Silva took over. Doucoure has been a regular for Silva’s Watford this season and has already scored four goals for the side. The Frenchman has also improved his defensive side of the game and is surely one of the important players in the current Watford side.
3. Raheem Sterling
The Englishman’s signing from Liverpool looked like a waste of money as Sterling was struggling with his form upfront. He wasn’t that impressive in Pep Guardiola’s first season at Manchester City but has been a revelation this season. He has already scored seven goals this season, being just two short of his best ever tally. He has improved his game in the final third, becoming more efficient in scoring and assisting which has helped Pep immensely to score goals on a regular basis.
2. Alberto Moreno
Klopp was quick last season in replacing Alberto Moreno with James Milner at the left back position due to the Spaniard’s poor form and performances. But Moreno took it in the right way and had improved his game this season. He has been more effective while attacking and has made sure that his individual errors are reduced to a minimum. Although, Liverpool have struggled defensively, the change in Moreno’s game is a positive sign for the Merseyside club.
1. Leroy Sane
The German is a great prospect, and it was seen in his performances last season. But what it lacked was consistency and the intensity. This season though, Sane has looked a different player altogether. He has been quick, strong and lethal up front, scoring six goals and five assists already. No player has been more involved in more goals than him, and it is surely a massive improvement on his side. Sane’s form will be a vital factor in Manchester City’s bid to win the Premier League this season.
