Starting with Mr Obvious…

KDB has stormed back from the injury issues of last season to lay down a real marker with his performances so far.

He already has nine assists in the Premier League, at least twice as many as his nearest competitor.

The Belgian is pricey for a midfielder but that selection percentage is far lower than it should be.

2 James Maddison – £3.8m/59 points (Selected by 18.4%)

Maddison hit the ground running in his first top flight campaign last term and has gone to another level already this time around.

Part of a blistering Leicester side hellbent on gatecrashing the top four, his delivery has been gobbled up by the likes of Jamie Vardy so far.

He has more points than the likes of Roberto Firmino and Gabriel Jesus.

Pepe has been made a scapegoat for some of Arsenal’s problems so far, but that’s what comes with a £72m price tag.

In reality he’s been showing real signs of star quality, particularly in the Europa League.

His two free kick goals against Vitoria spared the Gunners’ blushes, while he’s also a secret Star Man merchant and clearly a WhoScored ratings favourite.

4 Trent Alexander-Arnold – £4.5m/57 points (Selected by 37.9%)

Is there anything this lad can’t do?

Liverpool fans will tell you he’s been their best offensive AND defensive player so far this season.

Clean sheets have been a lot rarer for the Reds’ defence in 2019/20, but Alexander-Arnold keeps producing from set pieces to keep his total ticking over.

5 Diego Rico – £1.8m/50 points (Selected by 0.7%)

Bournemouth’s best player this season

What about this for a left-field option?

Rico has established himself as Bournemouth’s main left-back option this season and his wicked left foot is proving a useful asset.

He has two assists so far and is the Cherries’ highest rated player on WhoScored.
