Ballon d'Or 2018: Final rankings of the Premier League players
#8 Roberto Firmino (Brazil, Liverpool)
Rank - 19
The Brazilian has Barcelona midfielder Ivan Rakitic and Real Madrid defender Sergio Ramos for company in his rankings. Firmino was a very essential part of the Liverpool team that reached the final of the Champions League last season, scoring 10 goals in 13 games in the tournament and 27 goals in 54 games in all competitions for Liverpool. The Brazilian is going through a slow start to the new season though, as he has scored just 5 times in 20 games so far.
Firmino received 4 points in the Ballon d'Or voting process and finished 19th.
#7 Sergio Aguero (Argentina, Manchester City)
Rank - 16
Aguero has finished ahead of Real Madrid duo Karim Benzema and Gareth Bale, who are both tied at 17th. The Argentinean ended last season with 30 goals from 39 games as Manchester City won the Premier League and the League Cup. This season, he has already scored 12 goals from 17 games so far. Aguero received 7 points and finished at 16th among the contenders.
