#7 Trent Alexander-Arnold, Liverpool

Arguably the best right-back in world football right now, Trent Alexander-Arnold continues to prove his excellence on a consistent basis.

The 22-year-old is a product of the Liverpool youth academy, climbing up the ranks to make his debut in 2016. Under Jurgen Klopp's management, Alexander-Arnold has become lethal offensively, with his creativity and passing ability leading to calls to play him in midfield.

The England international, alongside left-back Andrew Robertson, is a vital cog in Liverpool's attacks, with the midfield playing a more subdued role due to their ability to bomb forward and deliver a perfect cross or a pass.


#6 Sadio Mane, Liverpool

One of the best wingers in world football right now, Sadio Mane has enjoyed a stellar career at Liverpool so far.

Mane joined Liverpool from Southampton in 2016 for £34 million, with manager Jurgen Klopp a fan since he was the manager of Borussia Dortmund. The 28-year-old immediately became a key player for Liverpool, with his pace and dribbling becoming symbolic with the way Klopp wanted his side to play.

Last season, the Senegal international scored 18 goals in 35 Premier League appearances as Liverpool won the Premier League title and has had a good season so far, scoring four goals in 12 appearances.


#5 Bruno Fernandes, Manchester United

It is not pleasant to imagine what Manchester United would have endured had they not signed Bruno Fernandes in January this year.

Linked with the Red Devils for quite some time, Fernandes joined Manchester United from Sporting CP for £47 million in the winter transfer window. Such was his impact during the second half of the season that he ended up winning the Sir Matt Busby Player of the Year award.

The 26-year-old is now regarded as Manchester United's most important player, with his creativity from midfield and his ability to consistently score goals often the difference between a win and a loss.


#4 Son Heung-min, Tottenham Hotspur

Alongside the likes of Mane and Mohamed Salah, Son Heung-Min is among the best wingers in the world at the moment.

While Harry Kane continues to be talisman for Spurs, Son is arguably equally important for the side. The South Korea international has been in sensational form this season and has rescued Spurs from difficult situations several times.

The 28-year-old has formed a potent attacking partnership with Kane under the management of Jose Mourinho. Having scored 11 goals in 30 games last time around, Son has 11 goals already this season in 13 games.
