The best players in the top 6 Premier League clubs so far. Let us look at the players who have been their clubs shining light so far this season.
The Premier League boasts of many world class teams. These teams strengthen their side every year in the transfer market. As such. there is no shortage of star performers in each of the top side. All of them look to justify their price tag and value to the team by helping their club win trophies.
Naturally, a team’s success depends on how these players gel and play together. Football is a team sport after all. However, each team boasts of players who tend to perform better than their teammates. Today we will look at the best players in the top 6 Premier league clubs so far.
For this list we will look at the teams that have generally done well consistently in the English top flight. This list though is completely opiniated and will definitely differ from the thoughts of many regarding the same. However, that is what the sport is about; drawing different conclusions from the same exact sample of evidence.
This is exactly why people support different teams and players isn’t it? Besides, the game would be a lot more boring if everyone had the same opinion on every matter. With that out of the way, let us now look at the best players in the top 6 Premier League clubs so far.
Arsenal are undergoing a disappointing season at the moment. The club’s recruitment tactics in the summer led many to believe that a top 4 spot was but a guarantee. The signing of Nicolas Pepe from Lille left many fans drooling at the sight of a dangerous front 3 including Alexandre Lacazette and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang.
Some even went so far as to compare it to Liverpool’s front three of Sadio Mane, Mohamed Salah and Roberto Firmino. However, Lacazette’s injury has meant that the trio have very rarely played together. Pepe on the other hand as had flashes of brilliance but on the whole, has not been consistent enough.
Last season’s golden boot winner, Aubameyang though, has been the sole shining light in an Arsenal side that has flattered to deceive so far. Arsenal are currently 5th in the table. However, they trail leaders Liverpool by 14 points and are 6 points away from Everton who are sitting at 17th place.
Imagine abusing your best player this season. Without the goals of Aubameyang this season, Arsenal would be 19th in the Premier League. Shocking behaviour.

If not for Aubameyang’s heroics, Arsenal could have very well had a much worse showing. The forward has already scored 8 goals in 11 matches for the Gunners. He has displayed brilliant finishing and a sharp presence of mind while launching counter attacks. Unfortunately, he has received little to no support from the rest of his team.
Chelsea- Tammy Abraham
Chelsea were expected to falter this season. Top 6 was a pipe dream and the realistic goal seemed to avoid relegation. At the moment, Chelsea are at 4th position and are only 2 points behind second place Manchester City. If Pep Guardiola loses to Liverpool and Chelsea beat Crystal Palace in the weekend, the Blues could very well sit at 2nd place by the end of the week!
It is fair to say that the club has exceeded all expectations and a large credit for that goes to Tammy Abraham. Frank Lampard handed opportunities to several youngsters; many of whom vindicated their manager’s decision. However, Tammy Abraham has been heads and shoulders above his young teammates. The young English striker has notched up 9 goals and 2 assists in 11 matches for the Blues so far.
He has shown exceptional positional awareness with his finishing and looks good in the air too. Tammy Abraham has very quickly become Chelsea’s number one striker in just a few months! Older players such as Olivier Giroud and Michy Batshuayi have been relegated to the bench due to his prolific form.
He has scored a goal once every 92 minutes in the Premier League so far! If he continues in the same vein, he could very well end up with the Golden boot this season. However, that is still a long way down the line. At the moment, Chelsea and Tammy Abraham will just hope to continue the good work.
