The 2019-20 season of the English Premier League is finally upon us, and while favorites have already been identified, there’s no reason we can’t go over some of the best players in the league that you should certainly tune in to watch this season.
While there are countless greats at all positions on the pitch, these players are sure to make a massive impact on the outcome of the Premiership this season.
Mohamed Salah, Liverpool
What is there left to say about the Egyptian dynamo? Salah has already become a legend at one of the EPL’s most legendary clubs by scoring 32 goals in his first season and then leading Liverpool to a Champions League title the following season. Mohammed is one of our favorite Liverpool players with some impressive english championship stats.
Harry Kane, Tottenham
Despite playing in just 28 games last season after a fatigue from leading England into the semifinals of the 2018 World Cup, Kane still managed to punch 17 goals and add four assists. This season, after a full summer of rest, he is sure to hit 20 goals or more as he did in the previous five seasons before last year. Leading a strong Tottenham side, Kane is sure to continue to cement his place as one of the better players in the EPL and one of the many hopes of a young English National Team.
Sergio Agüero, Manchester City
The prolific Argentine attackman has become one of the most consistent players in league history during his eight-year stint with Man City.
At 31 years old, he scored 21 goals last season and while he is getting up there in age to be sure, he still has a few more years ahead of him.
Virgil van Dijk, Liverpool
The reigning PFA Player of the Year and Premier League Player of the Season was a huge reason why the Liverpool defense last season allowed a stingy .58 goals per game. While players are sure to come and go in Liverpool, as long as van Dijk is bolstering Liverpool’s back line, they’re sure to be a powerhouse on the defensive end.
João Moutinho, Wolves
The only player on this list that is not in one of the EPL’s Big 6 clubs, and there’s a very good reason why. Last season, he helped accelerate a middling club to a seventh-place finish thanks to his ability to control tempo, move the ball around the pitch, and generally serve as an engine for a club that will look to have another successful outing this season.
Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, Arsenal
Last season was Aubameyang’s first full season at Arsenal and he quickly proved why the storied club decided to make him the most expensive player on the team at that time. He jelled almost immediately with attacker Alexandre Lacazette and ultimately scored 22 goals last season – tying him with Sadio Mané and Mo Salah for Golden Boot honors. If that wasn’t enough to get him on this list, the Arsenal addition of Nicolas Pépé will likely only make him a more dangerous player going forward.
