Virgil van Dijk takes number one spot

So Van Dijk is crowned the best player in the Premier League at the moment and deservedly so.

He's been phenomenal since signing for the Reds in 2018 and has played a key role in the club's transformation into one of the best team's in the world.

Sterling comes in at second while De Bruyne, perhaps controversially, pips Salah to third place.

Laporte is the only other defender in the top 10, while Alexander-Arnold is 12th.

Paul Pogba is only ranked the 33rd best player in the Premier League

United's summer signing Maguire is ranked 20th, making him the third highest ranked centre-back in the league.

Pogba comes in all the way down at 33 which, for a player of his ability, seems well too low.

Rashford has been going through a tough time in the past six months and is only ranked at 40th.

There is no room for Norwich ace Teemu Pukki in the top 50, despite his incredible form to start this season.
