Mohamed Salah has won the Sky Sports Power Rankings for 2017/18 — but which players made the top 50 and who’s your club’s top player?
Salah joins former winners Alexis Sanchez and Riyad Mahrez as king of the stats, scoring his 32nd Premier League goal during a 4-0 win against Brighton — to seal Liverpool’s Champions League qualification and claim the Golden Boot.
The Egypt international ended the campaign nearly 10,000 points clear of Manchester City playmaker Kevin De Bruyne, who assisted Gabriel Jesus’ late winner at Southampton and had dominated the chart until late February.
Harry Kane finished in third place for the third season running, scoring twice in a dramatic 5-4 win over Leicester to extend his tally to 30, while Christian Eriksen also secured his third successive season in the Power Rankings top 10.
Eden Hazard was another familiar name among the top performers in fifth spot, while Manchester City winger Raheem Sterling landed sixth place with a career-high 18 league goals.
Former winner Mahrez was the only player in the top 10 from outside the top six clubs, having rekindled glimpses of his form from Leicester’s title-winning campaign — staying with the Foxes after having a transfer request declined in January.
Other players to make the top 10 included Roberto Firmino, Leroy Sane and Sergio Aguero — while Sanchez, David Silva and Fernandinho narrowly missed out.
In total, 15 players from outside the top six clubs made the top 50. In addition to Mahrez, Abdoulaye Doucoure ranked highest, followed by Wilfried Zaha, Xherdan Shaqiri, Jamie Vardy, Pascal Gross, Wilfried Ndidi and Luka Milivojevic.
Manchester United’s David de Gea was the top-ranked ‘keeper, followed by City stopper Ederson and Burnley’s Nick Pope.
The Power Rankings methodology reflects a player’s performance by awarding points to players for 32 different stats.
