The Premier League is widely considered as the best league in the world, with a number of top stars plying their trade in England. Here, we take a look at the most valuable XI at present.
11. GK – Alisson (Liverpool) – €90 Million
Widely considered by many to be the best goalkeeper in the world and a key reason why Liverpool are experiencing such success off late, Alisson Becker has been brilliant for the Reds ever since joining them last season.
The Brazilian has continued his form this season too, conceding only 17 goals in 28 appearances in all competitions, while also registering 14 clean sheets.
10. DF – Andy Robertson (Liverpool) – €80 Million
The best left-back in the business and another who has been a key part of Liverpool’s success, Andy Robertson has taken the world by storm due to his performances both in attack and defence.
The Scotland international has been an ever present for Jurgen Klopp this season, making 41 appearances, scoring two goals and providing seven assists.
9. DF – Aymeric Laporte (Manchester City) – €75 Million
Such is the importance of Aymeric Laporte to Manchester City can be seen by how their title defence crumbled after he suffered a serious injury at the start of the season. The Frenchman played an important role in their domestic treble winning campaign last term and has now returned to action.
City look much better and much more composed as a team following his return from injury.
8. DF – Virgil van Dijk (Liverpool) – €100 Million
The best defender in the world without any doubt, Virgil van Dijk completely changed the way Liverpool defended on his arrival and was arguably the single most important player in their Champions League triumph last season and their performances this term.
The Dutchman has been ever present for the Reds this campaign, making 41 appearances while also chipping in attack, scoring four goals and registering two assists.
7. DF – Trent Alexander-Arnold (Liverpool) – €110 Million
A third Liverpool player in the defence and one who has been touted as a future Ballon d’Or winner, Trent Alexander-Arnold’s capacity to excel in attack and at the back is second to none.
In 41 appearances for the Reds this season he has scored two goals and provided 14 assists, with many believing that he could move to the midfield in the future and become someone in the mould of a Kevin De Bruyne.
6. DM – N’Golo Kante (Chelsea) – €100 Million
N’Golo Kante might not be having the best of seasons, mainly due to injury issues, though there is no doubt that he would make any World XI as the main defensive midfielder. The Frenchman is widely admired by many and despite his injury trouble has still managed to make 22 appearances this season, scoring three goals in the process.
5. CM – Kevin De Bruyne (Manchester City) – €150 Million
The best attacking midfielder in the world and the most creative player in Europe’s top-five leagues, Kevin De Bruyne has once again showed why he is so dangerous not only when it comes to scoring goals but also when it comes to laying on assists for his team-mates.
The Belgian has scored nine goals and provided an astonishing 20 assists in just 35 games so far this season.
4. LW – Raheem Sterling (Manchester City) – €160 Million
Raheem Sterling has grown by leaps and bounds under the tutelage of Pep Guardiola at Manchester City, going on to become one of their best players at the club and one of the best wingers in the world.
He has been prolific this season too, netting 20 goals and registering seven assists in 39 games this season.
3. RW – Sadio Mane (Liverpool) – €150 Million
The Golden Boot winner in the Premier League and a key component of Liverpool’s Champions League triumph last season, Sadio Mane has been impressive this campaign too netting 18 goals and registering 12 assists in 38 games so far.
Many believed that he deserved to win the Ballon d’Or, and if he continues in the same vein he will be part of the conversation once again in the future.
2. ST – Mohamed Salah (Liverpool) – €150 Million
Another player who has changed the fortunes of Liverpool ever since moving to England has been Mohamed Salah, with the Egyptian scoring goals for fun both domestically and in Europe.
The striker has been impressive this term too, netting 20 goals and registering nine assists in 40 games.
1. ST – Harry Kane (Tottenham Hotspur) – €150 Million
Tottenham Hotspur have struggled this season and one of the main reasons is due to the absence of their talismanic striker, Harry Kane – who suffered a long-term injury at the start of the year.
Before his injury, he was as usual prolific in front of goal, netting 17 goals and providing two assists in 25 games.
