The Premier League’s Golden Boot winner and the perfect goalkeeper of 2021-22 function among the many biggest slumps of the season.
This lot, against this, have turned issues round.
Arsenal – Takehiro Tomiyasu
The Japan worldwide was amongst Arsenal’s high performers final season, significantly at first of the marketing campaign, however has seen his sport time restricted on this title cost. However then what likelihood did he have up towards The Finest Premier League Proper-Again, who positively really doesn’t want upgrading.
Aston Villa – Philippe Coutinho
The third most costly participant in historical past is but to attain or help a objective this season after Aston Villa paid Barcelona £17m for his everlasting signing in the summertime. His solely begin underneath new supervisor Unai Emery got here within the 2-1 FA Cup defeat to Stevenage.
Brentford – Pontus Jansson
It’s not a vastly good search for the membership captain that he fails as a centre-back to get right into a staff that usually performs with three of them.
Brighton – Lewis Dunk
There are a few very distinguished Brighton gamers of final season who’ve deteriorated considerably, however each Marc Cucurella and Yves Bissouma not play for them. Dunk’s aerial win proportion has dropped from 68.6 to 49.1, which looks as if an unworthy cause to have chosen him, and possibly is.
Chelsea – Mason Mount
Regardless of Chelsea’s demise as an entire being among the many most important within the Premier League, there aren’t many people accessible for choice who had been markedly higher final season. Reece James, Ben Chilwell and N’Golo Kante have been injured, Antonio Rudiger’s gone and Thiago Silva’s been equally good. Mount has in all probability nonetheless been Chelsea’s greatest ahead, however had 12 Premier League objective contributions at this stage final season, in comparison with simply 5 this time period.
Crystal Palace – Marc Guehi
His partnership with Joachim Anderson appeared final season as if it may flourish into one thing particular, however Guehi has had quite a lot of powerful moments this time period whereas his fellow centre-back continues to development upwards.
Everton – Dominic Calvert-Lewin
The one manner Everton weren’t going to be completely f***ed by Richarlison’s departure was via both signing an acceptable substitute or Calvert-Lewin returning to goalscoring kind. They signed Neal Maupay and Calvert-Lewin has scored as soon as. Everton are completely f***ed.
Leeds – Patrick Bamford
Jesse Marsch should have thought Bamford could be higher than he has been, having waited till January to signal one other striker. Injured for many of final season, it was hoped Bamford would rediscover the type of 2020-21 which earned him an England name. He’s had a nightmare.
Leicester – Jamie Vardy
It needed to occur sooner or later, however you’d have thought extra individuals could be speaking about it when it did. Vardy scored a Premier League objective each 120 minutes final season and has scored his solely objective this time period in 1,136 minutes of motion. Might this be a reverse Cristiano Ronaldo, the place a participant may be p*ssed off at no-one speaking about them being previous it?
Liverpool – Trent Alexander-Arnold
Nineteen assists in whole final season and simply two this time period. What got here first, Alexander-Arnold’s deterioration or Liverpool’s?
Manchester Metropolis – Joao Cancelo
Pep Guardiola isn’t one for blind loyalty, and regardless of Cancelo being amongst Manchester Metropolis’s greatest gamers final season, he’s now out of favour, with centre-backs extra not too long ago most well-liked in his place.
Manchester United – Harry Maguire
It’s extra his profession that’s deteriorated quite than his soccer, however he certainly received’t keep at Previous Trafford past the summer season.
Newcastle – Allan Saint-Maximin
No-one anticipated the Miguel Almiron glow0up however Saint-Maximin would nonetheless have anticipated to begin greater than 4 Premier League video games this time period. The truth that they don’t actually play with a left winger whereas he sits on the bench doesn’t say a lot for his future underneath Eddie Howe.
Southampton – Jan Bednarek
So Jan, how did you get pleasure from your mortgage at Aston Villa? He was recalled by Southampton after one begin for Villa wherein he was taken off at half-time, and has little likelihood of extra motion for his father or mother membership, who had the cheek of signing higher centre-backs.
Tottenham – Son Heung-min
Final season’s Golden Boot winner has already failed to attain in 17 of his 19 Premier League video games this season. If Son scored as soon as in each sport from now till the top of the season he would nonetheless be two objectives in need of his 2021-22 tally.
West Ham – Jarrod Bowen
There was a really actual likelihood Bowen may have ended up in Qatar with England after his shows final season. That each one feels a bit foolish now, along with his lack of objectives and assists this time period proving to be an actual downside for David Moyes.
Wolves – Jose Sa
£7m for Sa was arguably the discount of the 2021 summer season switch window. Solely three goalkeepers made extra saves than his 121 and he had by far the perfect save proportion of anybody with 80.6 per cent. In fairly the beautiful fall from grace, his save proportion is now simply 66.7 per cent, which is bettered by 15 others within the high flight.
