10 Best Players Since The Restart!

published on July 25, 2020

Hello and welcome back to football daily where with the premier league concluding tomorrow we have decided to profile the 10 best players in england since the restart let's get started 10 raheem sterling man city have blown hot and cold since

The resumption while they have demolished arsenal burnley liverpool brighton newcastle and watford scoring 26 goals without reply they have also been outplayed by chelsea

Southampton and exited the fa cup at the hands of arsenal but one player who can't be accused of such inconsistency is raheem sterling the 25 year old went into lockdown in pretty woeful form with

Zero goal contributions in his previous 11 games but he has looked razor sharp since the restocked with nine goals in 10 appearances that included a magnificent solo effort

Against newcastle and a hat-trick against brighton his third of the campaign this hot streak has taken the winger to 29 goals and 3 assists in 49 games in all competitions this term

That means in a difficult season for city in which they lost 9 in the league their most since pep arrived sterling has still scored at least 23 goals in all competitions for the third

Consecutive campaign with the success of their 2020 now depending solely on the champions league the citizens know they have a chance to go all the way with sterling in this kind of form

9 lewis dunk it's easy to forget that brighton hovered just two points above the drop zone prior to the restart and with just one win in their previous 14 games looked in real danger of ending their three-year stay in the top flight

And while results haven't been perfect with heavy defeats to man united and man city in particular graeme potter has done incredibly well to steer them four points clear of relegation with one game to play

While many would argue that neil mopai the hero of that famous win against newcastle deserves the plaudits we believe it's instead lewis dunk who deserves a spot on this list his goal against arsenal took his

Personal tally to three goals and three assists in 35 games this campaign just one fewer than will zahar in a season in which john stones has been practically non-existent there is a strong case that dunk with

His average of 27 tackles and interceptions a game and 62 passes at an 87 accuracy might be england's best backup option behind mcguire and gomez 8 nick pope while many people have

Rightly given a lot of credit to wolves and sheffield united this season very few have given much notice of burnley who currently sit ninth just four points off seventh place spurs at the time of writing

And while wood rodriguez and dwight mcneil have all had solid campaigns the claret's best player this season has without doubt been nick pope the 28 year old has alongside james tarkowski

Played every minute of this campaign keeping a remarkable 15 clean sheets in 37 games to date burnley have conceded 45 goals fewer than expected goals predicts and this is down to pope's excellent 72

Save percentage the same as man city's edison with just one defeat in eight games since the restart three clean sheets secured and a man-of-the-match performance at hanfield in which he made

Eight saves the potential golden glove winner is in magnificent form and deserves his spot in our list ahead of emmy martinez 7 harry kane having missed at least 10 games with injury in three of the last

Four seasons it is song heung-min rather than harry kane who has had to consistently carry spurs push for europa league football and after four wins in five games it looks a distinct possibility

With one game to play tottenham sits seventh just one point behind wolves who face champions league chasing chelsea and their star player since football returned has undoubtedly been kane

Initially a little sluggish having not played since new year's day with two goals in his first six games england's captain has exploded in recent weeks he backed up a brace against newcastle

With a world-class performance against leicester he made two tackles created a chance and fired off a team-high four shots scoring two expertly taken goals as spurs ran out comfortable three-nil

Winners that means that in 33 league in champions league appearances this season kane has scored a very credible 23 goals at an average of a strike every 128 minutes

In a season in which spurs lost their manager and their main creative outlet in christian eriksen that's a very solid return 6 christian pulisic christian pulisic came to the premier league with high

Expectations signed for 58 million pounds he had the unenviable task of trying to replace eden hazard who contributed to 31 league goals last season

And after a slow start pulisic exploded into life in the winter before an abductor tear in january saw him miss 11 games going into lockdown but his impact since the restart has been enormous

He appeared as a 55th minute substitute in their first game back against villa and within five minutes had set chelsea on their way to a 2-1 victory since then he has started every league game bar one contributing a

Further three goals and two assists his performance against man city in which he completed four dribbles and scored a beautiful solo goal not only kept the blues in champions

League contention but ended the citizens unlikely title hopes chelsea have been far from perfect with demoralizing defeats to west ham and sheffield united but with nine goals and four assists in 24 prem games to date

Not to mention a combined expected goals and assist per 90 ratio of 071 just 002 more than manet pulisic can be proud of his first campaign in england 5 connor cody it's been a magnificent campaign for 27 year old wolf

Centre-back conor cody not only has he led his side to the edge of the europa league quarter-finals and sixth in the premier league but his boyhood club liverpool have ended their 30-year wait for a

Top-flight title damaging defeats to arsenal and sheffield united might have ended their champions league hopes but their defense marshaled by cody has been exceptional

They have kept five clean sheets in eight games to date while their four goals conceded is the best record in the premier league with manchester city and united the only other teams to concede fewer than seven

In that time cody has been ever present playing every minute of the campaign completing 69 of his tackles and 76 long balls per match the best of any outfield player if

Wolves can keep hold of treyore and jimenez and add some depth across their small squad there is no reason that the black country club can't compete for european football once again next season

4 alan sam maximan it's fair to say that alan sam maxum man didn't get off to the best of starts following his 162 million pound move from nice in august 2019 playing for an ultra conservative

Newcastle side that scored just 25 goals in their first 29 premier league outings the joint lowest record in the division sam maxum man managed just two goals and one assist in 17 league games prior to lockdown but

Since the prem rolled back around he has looked like a player reborn with his exceptional dribbling ability finally backed up by some end product his two goals and three assists in seven matches prior to

Getting injured helped newcastle to 13th 10 points clear of the drop zone in some of those games he's been simply unplayable with 11 dribbles three key passes and six shots in a home loss to spurs and

Three assists away at bournemouth seven goal contributions in 24 league games might not sound like anything special but without the newcastle would not be sitting just to point off their best

Tally since returning to the premier league in 1718 with one game to go 3 danny ings signed for 18 million pounds last summer from liverpool for whom he had scored just three league goals across three years

Most of the question marks surrounding danny ings were centered around his ability to stay fit rather than his finishing that's because two knee injuries had seen him miss 85 games across the 15 16

And 16 17 seasons but the saints medical team have done a magnificent job with the former burnley front man fit enough to appear in every league game to date this term

With only three players topping his 2720 minutes and he has more than repaid them with 21 goals the same amount as karen benzema and two assists at an average of a goal contribution every 118 minutes this

Campaign going into the final game of the season only jaime vardy can top his tally which also puts him joint 7th in europe's top 5 leagues playing for a side that loves to get the

Ball forward quickly as shown by the fact that only burnley have a worse pass completion record in the division ings has thrived with six goals and one assist in eight league games since the restart

In the process he became just the third saints player to hit 20 premier league goals in a single season 2 anthony martial unsurprisingly in a side that sits second in the premier

League form table after lockdown with 18 points from eight games to date we could have picked any of rashford greenwood or bruno fernandez for our next position but we feel that the player who deserves

The most credit for their recent form is in fact anthony martial the 24 year old frenchman went into the enforced break in great form having scored four goals in his previous six matches

Including strikes against chelsea and man city but despite the 103-day hiatus marshall managed to instantly pick it back up with an incredible 6 goals and 4 assists in 10 games since

His two standout performances were without doubt against sheffield united where he scored his first premier league hat-trick and united's first for seven years and southampton where he completed five

Dribbles laid on two chances and filed off five shots which ultimately led to a goal and an assist seemingly loving his central role playing in front of a midfield that finally moves the ball

Quickly and crucially forward it's little surprise martial already has 23 league goal contributions eight more than his previous best set back in 1516 1 mikhail antonio despite spending an

Extortion at 198 million pounds since the start of 1819 just 22 million less than man city in that time west ham had mustered four wins in 23 league games going into lockdown

Two limp defeats to wolves and spurs in their first games back left them 17th only ahead of 19th placed aston villa on goal difference and firmly in the relegation mix but since then they

Have been magnificent with three wins in five games including a dramatic last minute winner against chelsea and a crushing four-nil win over norwich the main protagonist 30 year old utility man michael antonio

A bit part player in the early part of the season who only completed 90 minutes three times and contributed two goals by early february he has once again proven himself as the man for the big occasion

Eight goals and one assist in his last five games including all four away at norwich have guaranteed west ham safety it's noteworthy that for the 45 million spent on hale

35 million on felipe anderson and 25 million splashed on four nows it's their 85 million pound signing from nottingham forest from five years ago that has secured a ninth consecutive
