Liverpool have some of the best players in the world right now, and Mohamed Salah is arguably the jewel in their crown.

His £38 million from Roma to Liverpool in 2017 raised eyebrows, as his previous Premier League experience with Chelsea had not gone well. However, the 28-year-old proved to be the perfect player for Jurgen Klopp's system, scoring 32 Premier League goals in his first season.

Salah has not looked back since then, continuously posting consistent goalscoring numbers. Last season, he scored 19 goals in 34 games as Liverpool won the Premier League title. This season he is on track to surpass that, having scored 11 goals in 12 games.


#2 Harry Kane, Tottenham Hotspur

There were some worries under the management of Mauricio Pochettino that Harry Kane's persistent injury issues had resulted in a decline.

Under Mourinho, however, the England international looks rejuvenated. His partnership with Son Heung-Min has been pivotal this season as Spurs sit second in the league table, and he looks to be back to his very best after a good rest during the lockdown period.

The 27-year-old's evolution into a creator has been good to witness. Kane has scored nine goals in 13 Premier League games this season, but has provided 10 assists as well; with Son the primary recipient. The England international is in frightening form and is truly back to being regarded as one of the best strikers in the world.


#1 Kevin De Bruyne, Manchester City

Kevin De Bruyne was voted the Premier League Player of the Season for his performances last season, a well-deserved award for one of the best players in the world.

A fine playmaker, the Belgium international is Manchester City's most important player, with his creativity and passing from midfield as well as his low crosses key to the way Pep Guardiola's side play. Last season, he recorded 20 assists, matching Thierry Henry's record for most assists in a season.

With the departure of David Silva in the summer, there is increased pressure on the 29-year-old. De Bruyne has done well so far; in 10 Premier League starts, the Belgium international has recorded six assists and two goals.
