05 Mar 2022 | 13:29 | Football

 Let’s take a look at the squad of 11 players who are in the best form in the Premier League but are not on the Big Six teams.

Midfielder: Ruben Neves

Goalkeeper: Jose Sa (Wolverhampton Wanderers) 

As the team with the best defense outside of the Big Six when only conceding 21 goals in 26 matches in the EPL, the success of Wolverhampton Wanderers has a huge contribution from goalkeeper Jose Sa, who just landed “The Wolves” ” from Olympiacos in the summer transfer window but quickly shined here. 

Right-back: Kieran Trippier (Newcastle United) 

Joining Newcastle United from the winter market, Kieran Trippier immediately confirmed his value with 2 goals at the EPL, thereby helping “Chicken” to get ahead in the relegation race. However, the English defender is currently resting to treat an injury.

Trung vệ: Dan Webster (Brighton & Hove Albion) 

After the departure of Ben White, Dan Webster is the name to take on the role of leader in the Brighton defense. His certainty helps teachers and coaches Graham Potter create a safe distance from the group running away from relegation. 

Center-back: Mohammed Salisu (Southampton) 

Similar to Webster, Mohammed Salisu is also considered an indispensable pillar in the Southampton defense. His excellent form has contributed significantly to helping Southampton temporarily ranked 9th in the table. 

Left-back: Arthur Masuaku (West Ham United) 

Excellent replacement for the role of Aaron Cresswell on the left corridor, Arthur Masuaku is the preferred choice in the starting lineup of coach David Moyes. He currently has 1 goal and 1 assist in the EPL this season. 

Central Midfielder: Ruben Neves (Wolverhampton Wanderers) 


As the “heart” of the Wolves midfield, Ruben Neves impressed with his ability to control the rhythm, excellent distribution of the ball, excellent free-kicks and often launched dangerous long shots. He is currently considered a transfer target of big teams like Chelsea, Man United or Arsenal.

Central Midfielder: Declan Rice (West Ham United) 

Considered one of the best central midfielders in English football at the moment, Declan Rice is valued at up to £100 million by West Ham United for any club that wants to own his signature. 

Attacking Midfielder: Michael Olise (Crystal Palace) 

Crystal Palace’s young talent is developing strongly under coach Patrick Vieira. He has now scored 2 goals and 5 assists in the EPL this season. 

Right Midfielder: Raphinha (Leeds United) 

As the top scorer of Leeds United this season, Raphinha has been interested by clubs like Bayern Munich, Liverpool or Man United. If Leeds cannot stay in the EPL this season, it will be difficult for them to keep Raphinha in the next transfer window. 

Left Midfielder: Wilfried Zaha (Crystal Palace) 

The pillar of Crystal Palace is still maintaining a stable form when contributing to 8 goals in the Premier League under coach Patrick Vieira. 

Tiền :o: Kelechi Iheanacho (Leicester City) 

The former Man City striker is currently the first choice where the center position is at Leicester City, replacing the aged Jamie Vardy. He has now scored 2 goals and contributed 4 goals to “Foxes” at EPL.
