He’s improved his all-round game with more tackles, interceptions, key passes, and shots per game than last season. There have even been some calls for him to become their captain.Tottenham Hotspur – Moussa SissokoIf you had told Spurs fans earlier this season they would all be cheering game-winning performances from the ex-Newcastle United man against Chelsea and Inter Milan at Wembley, they would think you’d had a few too many.

Under Conte last season, the Blues played five at the back, with Antonio Rudiger not quite a fully permanent fixture, however now Sarri starts four defenders with the German having established himself as a prominent figure. One particular goal-line clearance to prevent Liverpool’s Mo Salah from finding the net at Stamford Bridge stands out as his star moment, and it’s clear consistent appearances have helped Rudiger become a centre-back who the league’s top strikers are now wary of. Everton – Gylfi SigurdssonHaving already surpassed last year’s goal tally, Sigurdsson is finally getting his eye in with the Toffees. He’s still not assisting with the regularity he did at Swansea City but he is now getting more shots on goal and key passes away than last season. Having settled in a No.10 role really suits him with Richarlison ahead of him and natural wingers outside him. 13 Did Mahrez just accidentally reveal Fernandinho is leaving Man City this summer?

He appears to have finally recovered from a serious injury suffered in his debut Premier League campaign, with his performances last term held back by an unwillingness to give 100 per cent and run the risk of a set-back. He has been Watford’s main attacking force under Javi Gracia, both scoring and assisting goals, and Pereyra’s return to the Argentina set-up is well deserved.
