PL’s Top Ten performing Englishmen
The Premier League is never far from being discussed as a cause of the England national team’s eternal woes and overall, it’s hard to disagree.
Indeed, the influx of cheap foreign talent that’s made the Premier League so successful has inevitably reduced the pool of English footballers playing at top level, whilst the intensity of the first tier has limited opportunities for young home-grown players as managers focus on short-term gains.

With that in mind, and aided by our good friends at WhoScored, FFC have taken a look at the ten top performing Englishmen in the Premier League so far this season. Our rundown features Arsenal, Liverpool and Tottenham stars – but there’s plenty of surprises along the way!
