10. HARRY KANE (Tottenham) – New item
It has been a frustrating season for Tottenham and Kane, especially considering his injury issues, but things have looked brighter over the past few weeks.
The English striker scored four goals in his last two games against Newcastle and Leicester, while Tottenham had an eye for a top six finish.
They will face Crystal Palace at Selhurst Park on Sunday in their last game, and Kane will be sure to get back on the score sheet against a team that has struggled tremendously since the season resumed.
9. MOHAMED SALAH (Liverpool) – Down four
Salah, who finally got his hands on the Premier League trophy on Wednesday, has endured a frustrating few matches after slapping Brighton in early July.
The Egyptian didn’t score in his previous two games, in Liverpool’s defeat to Arsenal and their exciting 5-3 home win over Chelsea.
He came in many good positions against his former team on Wednesday, but missed that lead and was replaced in the 79th minute because Jurgen Klopp opted for fresh legs at Anfield.
Harry Kane scored twice when Tottenham won convincingly 3-0 against Leicester this weekend
8. CHRISTIAN PULISIC (Chelsea) – New item
Chelsea may have fallen to a 5-3 loss, but Pulisic was undoubtedly the standout player on the pitch when Frank Lampard’s side went down on Merseyside on Wednesday evening.
The US international came into action at Anfield in the 59th minute and was close to inspiring a Chelsea comeback, which set up Tammy Abraham before having an emphatic attack himself to briefly reduce the score to 4-3.
Pulisic scored nine times and created six assists for Chelsea in his Premier League debut season, and he seems to keep getting better as the weeks go by. With Timo Werner and Hakim Ziyech next season, the Blues have a formidable attack.

7. DANNY INGS (Southampton) – New item
Ings just can’t stop scoring right now, and on Sunday against Bournemouth he scored his 21st goal of the season – he also missed a penalty – leaving him just two behind Jamie Vardy in the top scorers en route to the last round of fixtures .
The former Liverpool striker was also on schedule against Brighton, bringing the Southampton equalizer at St Mary’s to a composed finish.
Saints manager Ralph Hasenhuttl will be desperate to keep the English striker, who will certainly have enough candidates in the upcoming transfer window thanks to his incredible form at St Mary’s.
Danny Ings scored his 21st Premier League season goal this weekend in Bournemouth
6. TREZEGUET (Aston Villa) – Two higher
How important can a goal against Arsenal be for Aston Villa in their fight to beat the drop? The hosts ran into 1-0 winners against the Gunners thanks to Trezeguet’s exploits, removing them from the danger zone in one match.
Trezeguet brought in a fierce half volley for the hosts from a corner, leaving Emiliano Martinez without a chance in Arsenal’s goal at Villa Park.
The Egyptian is in good shape for Dean Smith’s game recently, scoring twice when Villa Crystal Palace defeated 2-0 on July 12, and they will be counting on Trezeguet to keep up with them as they face West Ham on Sunday.

KEVIN DE BRUYNE (Manchester City) – New item
The Belgian playmaker is about to etch his name into the Premier League history books again, after shining during City’s 4-0 beating by Watford on Vicarage Road.
De Bruyne got his 19th assist from the Premier League campaign and waved a nice corner for Aymeric Laporte to go home while Pep Guardiola’s squad rebelled on Tuesday.
The city midfielder is now just one short of Thierry Henry’s record with 20 assists in a Premier League season, but he will be sure to surpass this when Guardiola’s side host Norwich relegated on Sunday.

4. BRUNO FERNANDES (Manchester United) – Three down
Since coming out of Sporting Lisbon in January with a lot of money, Fernandes has taken the Premier League by storm, but for the first time this season, the Portuguese midfielder seems to be tiring as the campaign draws to a close.
Fernandes struggled to really impress Old Trafford, as United was held on Wednesday to a 1-1 draw at home to West Ham, which could be costly for the top four in the race for the end of the season.
But Ole Gunnar Solskjaer will count on him when United Leicester visits Sunday in a crunch match. The Red Devils must collect a point at King Power Stadium to claim their place in the Champions League next season.

3. MASON GREENWOOD (Manchester United) – One higher
Another English striker who just can’t stop scoring right now, and it seems like a matter of time until Gareth Southgate calls him up to the Three Lions squad after shining for United.
The 18-year-old scored his 10th goal in the Premier League at home to West Ham when he scored a devastating equalizer early in the second half – aiming to put himself next to some of United’s most clinical attackers.
In all competitions, Greenwood has scored 17 times this season – the only other teens in the United States to have reached that figure are George Best (1965-66), Brian Kidd (1967-68) and Wayne Rooney in 2004-05.
Mason Greenwood continued his good form by scoring the equalizer against West Ham
2. MICHAIL ANTONIO (West Ham) – No change
Antonio was the man of the moment for the Hammers as they maintained their Premier League status this season after difficult times at London Stadium.
After scoring four goals in Norwich’s hammering two games ago, Antonio followed up by grabbing West Ham’s equalizer at United – keeping his composure to head home from the penalty spot past David de Gea.
Antonio has arguably kept David Moyes’ side high this season thanks to his relentless work speed and efficiency for the goal since the Premier League kicked off in June.
Mikhail Antonio has been the Hammers’ standout player since the Premier League restart
1. RAHEEM STERLING (Manchester City) – Twice higher
England’s international Sterling seems to keep getting better and his improvement under Guardiola has been incredible since the Spaniard arrived at Etihad Stadium four years ago.
On Tuesday, Sterling tormented Watford’s defense and scored twice for City, including a thumping finish in the top corner to leave Ben Foster without a chance.
The winger has a fantastic 19 goals for City in the UK top flight, while producing four assists – a brilliant return. And he will desperately want to end a nice campaign by triumphing in the Champions League.
