Central midfield 

Conor Gallagher — Chelsea

The hardworking Conor Gallagher slots in at the right-hand of the midfield three. The Englishman's bustling energy provides Chelsea with some sparks in midfield. He has nine goal contributions this season.

Left wing

Luis Diaz — Liverpool

The Colombian has quickly adapted to the Premier League, alleviating the loss of Sadio Mane to Bayern Munich. Luis has 10 goals and five assists this season, despite not hitting the height of the first season in a Liverpool shirt. The numbers are still impressive, especially considering the kidnapping of his father in Colombia last year.

Right wing

Mohamed Salah — Liverpool

Mohammed Salah has come back to haunt his former club on a few occasions. The Egyptian king has made 29 goal contributions in 28 appearances for the Reds this season. Liverpool fans will be happy that their talisman rejected lucrative offers from Saudi Arabia to stay with them for at least one more season.


Cole Palmer — Chelsea

Cole Palmer is having an excellent season at Stamford Bridge. The former Manchester City star, now playing for Chelsea, is CFC's highest goal scorer with 12 goals and nine assists. What sets him apart from his teammates is his composure and mastery on the ball in dangerous areas of the pitch.
