Premier League’s top creative midfielders to watch out this season
Ranking the top 10 Creative midfielders to watch out for this Premier league 19-20 season
A good football team demands creativity from it’s midfield to cause trouble to the opposition defence and over the years the football world has witnessed many legends playing that part.
As the new, club football season awaits we take a look at 10 of the best creative midfielders to watch out for this Premier league season
10 Mesut Ozil
Once been the most creative midfielder in the league this man has seen many ups and downs in his footballing career.
From being the assist king of the league the German has witnessed a major decline in his performances.
Mainly criticised for his inconsistency and performances vs the big teams the midfielder managed only 2 assists, 5 goals last premier league season with only 45 chances created thus not creating enough for his team.
Though he can’t be ruled out as he still gives the glimpses of his prime and can rattle any defence on his day.
9. David Silva (Manchester city)
David Silva has always been a great inspiration for the citizens because of the magic he brings on the field.
He’s been a key member every time City have won the league, and indeed when they haven’t. Silva’s role was more crucial in the previous PL season as city dealt a huge blow due to Kevin de Bruyne’s injury problems but the Spaniard came strong as always helping his team by creating 73 chances , netting 6 goals and assisting 8 .
8. Luka Milivojevic
The Serbian is one of the most underrated players in the premier league in terms of creativity.
Never been a flashy or skilled player the Serbian sticks to the basics and knows how to get job done without much fuss.
Always considered as an asset for his team the Serb was backed by wonderful stats last season scoring 12 and assisting 2
7. Gylfi Siggurdson
Everton went all out for Gylfi Sigurdsson though he failed to deliver in his first season but Marco Silva is now starting to get the Icelandic international to make good on that investment.
Shifting Sigurdsson at a more suitable position Silva certainly brought and is continuing to bring the best out of him
Gylfi’s passing probes defences everywhere and his set-pieces kept Everton alive as a constant threat even if their open play form wasn’t always the best.
The Iceland international recorded a good season statistically as well as he created 73 chances assisting 6 but most importantly scored a huge tally of 13 goals.
6. James Maddison
No one created more chances in 2018/19 than James Maddison.
100 chances created, which is an utterly an astonishing number when you think about it.
48 of his chances created came from set pieces showing his command in that aspect.
Not only that but the English scored and assisted 7 goals in his PL campaign last season making him one of the bargain signings of last season.
5. Ryan Fraser
The Scottish was one of the most amazing player in the Premier league last season having scored 7 and assisting a mind blowing 14 goals only second best to Eden hazard.
Hopes will be high from the Cherry’s player this season as he has been doing consistently well for his team.
4. Kevin De Bruyne
The best player in the league (2017/18) had a rough 2018/19 with injuries restricting him to just 974 minutes.
Injury struck KDB still created 36 chances, which wasn’t at all bad.
Moreover he managed to create 11 big chances, a stat which only 2 other midfielders in PL could achieve. KDB has been a key for city with his unexpected movements and intelligent play one of the most aware players you’ll see nowadays .
Though city will be hoping an injury free season for him as he adds more threat and dimension to an already accomplished city side.
3. Paul Pogba
The latest world cup winner had an inconsistent campaign with differences between him and Mourinho it was under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer where we saw a new red hot pogba and his capability of what he can do. Though again he finished the season just like he started.
Nevertheless, it ended up as his best ever season statistically ending up with 9 assists and 13 goals. Though this time the United fans would be hoping much more consistent performances and mature attitude from him. With Real Madrid behind his signatures we may not be seeing Pogba in the Premier League this coming season.
2. Christian Eriksen
Christian Eriksen had a down year by his lofty standards but still got 12 assists and 8 goals in the Premier League.
He wasn’t at his best but the way he moved between opposing lines and fed his forwards was mesmeric passes at times. Just like Kevin De Bruyne, he has also been giving the most consistent performances for his club making him one of the most valuable midfielders in the world right now.
1. Bernardo Silva
At the end what matters the most is that PL trophy and this man played a huge role for Pep’s side in the midfield to win back to back premier leagues in a row . Not only his stats are impressive with 7 goals 7 assists and 71 chances created but he also has played different roles perfectly for Pep Guardiola . He also helped his national team Portugal in winning the UEFA Nations League.
Not only this man can create from midfield but can also do the same from wings making him a great versatile addition to anyone’s squad.
