Written by Callum McFadden with data from the team @ViziFootball. This is a profile of the top 5 playmakers in the Premier League.
Jack Grealish is statistically probably the best of the bunch. Hated by rival fans for his socks, the fouls he collects etc etc, these same people also secretly wish he played for them. Will this summer be the transfer window that sees him make a move to a traditional top 4 side?
Villa fans will hope not as the inspirational captain is the main cog in their side.
Kevin De Bruyne
Whatever were Chelsea thinking when they let KDB go? What a talent. Arguably, the best player in the Premier League. A driving force for Manchester City who will be vital to any sort of title challenge from Pep Guardiola’s side.
Bruno Fernandes has had a wonderful impact on Manchester United. A lot of his goals have been penalties but they all count. Could he be the man to inspire another Premier League title for United?
It’s not been a vintage season for Maddison so far but he’s an incredible talent who will back himself to play for England at the Euros.
James’ output has dried up a little after a fast start to the season, which in turn impacted Everton’s results. The toffees will be desperate for his return as he regularly contributes in the final third.
