Alisson - GK - OVR 89 You could argue that Liverpools defensive line is the main reason for their defensive record but when you see the difference in Liverpool without Alisson it speaks wonders for just how good the Brazilian is. Granted he often doesn't have much to do but when he does he has made some magnificent saves and has saved Liverpool several points this season. They could even have still been in Europe if he was able to play. Although there have been other keepers which have performed well this season I can't see Alisson not featuring here.
Trent Alexander-Arnold - RB - OVR 83 Although you could make a debate surrounding the goalkeeper selection when it comes to the Liverpool defenders there is just no question surrounding their inclusions. The back four were once again phenomenal this season with the wingbacks playing a large role not only defensively but also on the offensive. Trent actually comes second in the assist standings this season with an impressive 12 alongside his name. You just can't deny the talent and dominance that Trent is likely to have over the RB position in years to come.
Virgil Van Dijk - CB - OVR 90 Virgil is now known as the best defender in the world at them moment and theres good reason for that. He was the rock at the back for Liverpool this season, rarely being beaten and helping Liverpool to a defensive record of 21 goals conceded in 29 games, a tally which rarely gets beaten. The best thing about VVD is that he shows up in the big games though, scoring some crucial goals for Liverpool in their practically title winning season.
Caglar Soyuncu - CB - OVR 79 It was always going to be a difficult task to fulfill the shoes of Maguire but Soyuncu has done superbly at the back for Leicester this season. He doesnt have the benefit of having offensive statistics to stand out but thats not his job at the end of the day. The Turkish defender has played a large role in Leicester's defensive record, which currently stands at less goals conceded than games played.
Andrew Robertson - LB - OVR 85 No surprise that we are back to the Liverpool defenders now, with Robertson completely the trio of defenders included. Although the Scottsman in overshadowed by Trents performances on a regular basis he is another player thats crucial to the way Liverpool work. He has seven assists from LB and with Trent on set pieces it becomes harder for him to increase that tally, meaning seven is a high figure for that position. He managed to find himself in TOTY which will inevitably result in a TOTS item following suit.
Sadio Mane - LW - OVR 88 There is talk about this being Mane's last season for Liverpool with numerous clubs knocking for the Senegalese winger. Theres good reason for that being the case with Mane playing part in so much that Liverpool achieve. In the Premier League he has picked up 14 goals and seven assists this season, making him one of the stand out players yet again and although I doubt we will see another TOTY spot in 2020 Mane is going to be there or there abouts for a few years yet.
Kevin De Bruyne - CM - OVR 91
I think its safe to say that City have been rather disappointing this season and should have put up more of a fight in the title race than they did with the side they obtain. One player who regularly stood out for them however was the Belgian midfielder, De Bruyne. KDB has been one of their main players for several seasons now and injury free he is arguably the best central midfielder in the world. With 16 assists to his name he currently leads the Premier League for that statistic, doing what he does best. In addition to that he has also found the back of the net eight times, which results in 24 goal contributions in just 26 appearances.
Jordan Henderson - CM - OVR 83 If I'm completely honest with you I am not the biggest fan of Henderson and personally think he is rather overrated but I have to stick to a wider perspective when it comes to predicting these sides and thus I just can't see him being ignored. Although he isn't among the goals that often the role he plays is important for Liverpool, I just think that several other players would do it better.
Mohamed Salah - RW - OVR 90 Salah was quiet in parts of the season, specifically towards the beginning of it but when the Egyptian is in form there is no stopping him, making him one of the best players in the world right now. Once again he was one of the most influential players in the Prem and for me he would be one of the ones that Liverpool would miss most from their squad. With 16 goals and 6 assists he currently sits one contribution ahead of Mane. Who is better I will leave that one to you guys to decide.
Sergio Aguero - ST - OVR 89 Pep rotation alongside a couple of minor injury problems have limited Aguero's playing time this season with the Argentine only starting 17 games from a possible 29, although he has featured in 22. That could be a worry when it comes to selecting this side but when you consider that he has scored 16 goals in that time can you really ignore him for a TOTS side? I don't think so personally. He still remains one of the most talented strikers around as he looks to make his 7th TOTS in nine years for Manchester City.
Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang - ST - OVR 88 Aubameyang has been moved around position wise this season which perhaps makes it all that more impressive that he regularly performs well for them. The majority of his matches have seen him play in the striker role though and thus any item he picks up should occupy that position. The Gabon international has managed 17 goals in his 26 starts, leaving him second in the golden boot race.
Dean Henderson - GK - OVR 75 There are a few goalkeepers in with a shout of this position but Henderson surely has to be the best bet. Most expected Sheffield United to be facing relegation before the start of the season yet they are challenging for European places as things stand. Their defensive side of the game has played a significant role in that success with the newly promoted outlet only conceding 25 games in the 28 games they have played. Quite remarkable when you think about it.
Ricardo Pereira - RB - OVR 82 This position was between two players in my eyes with Aaron Wan Bissaka being the alternate player missing out. I think it's difficult to ignore Pereira though who has once again played a big role for Leicester this season, at both ends of the field. Although his three goals and two assists is not exactly groundbreaking he provides a constant threat down the right hand side while also providing exceptional defensive cover.
Wilfried Ndidi - CDM - OVR 84 We usually see a couple of defensive minded midfielders selected for TOTS and usually they are seemingly obvious choices. I can see the trend continuing with both Henderson and Ndidi being the obvious choices. Ndidi has been superb for Leicester throughout, providing the cover needed in front of the defensive. He deserves all the plaudits he gets and at just 22 years of age he has a strong future ahead of him.
Marcus Rashford - LM - OVR 83 I am still confident that Rashford's main position should be in the striker role rather than out on the left, where is where he has spent the vast majority of this season. That being said the Englishman has performed to a high standard. Arguably being United's main player this season, before the Bruno era at least. With 14 goals and 4 assists to his name Rashford walks in on stats alone but he does deserve to be there, standing out in what is another mediocre season for United.
Adama Traore - RW - OVR 77 Traore is not as clear cut as many make out for this side for me but he is the fringe player that I lean towards. There is a lot of media hype surrounding him after several big performances and although his stats dont impress that much with four goals and seven assists you have to remember that he started the season in a defensive role. Theres a good reason as to why many clubs are now looking at the Spaniard though.
Raul Jimenez - ST - OVR 80 There are numerous strikers lurking around the 15 goal mark this season and it can be difficult to decide between them but in the end I opted for the Wolves striker as he has been consistent through the whole season rather than going on an impressive goalscoring streak while being quiet for the rest. In total the Mexican has 13 goals and 6 assists for a Wolverhampton side who are once again chasing the European positions.
Jamie Vardy - ST - OVR 82 The hype surrounding Vardy this season is nothing on that of the title winning Leicester side but what he has managed this season is just as impressive. The Englishman currently leads the golden boot race with 19 goals in the 26 games he has featured in, making him one of the main reasons that Leicester currently sit in the Champions League positions.
Nick Pope - GK - OVR 79 It's difficult to say if we will get three goalkeepers or not but I just couldn't ignore any of the three selected. The Burnley keeper always seems to perform well with several keepers shining in recent years. Pope has managed to retain his spot for the 2019/20 season putting in performances which have called for many shouts for him to be England's number one. Although Burnley sit in 10th position, they maintain one of the best defensive records and with 90 saves to his name Pope is a large reason for that.
Raheem Sterling - LW - OVR 88 This is a very controversial decision but it is made for numerous reasons. Largely due to the fact that I simply can't see only two City players making the cut and with a shocking defensive record this season it only leaves the attackers. Both De Bruyne and Aguero are locked in for this side and the other option I feel is between Sterling and Mahrez. Sterling has the better statistics and although the second half of the season has been poor by his standards I feel that 11 goals from the wing won't be overlooked. Especially with it being Sterling.
Jack Grealish - LW- OVR 80 It looked as though Grealish was never going to reach the heights that many tipped him to reach with the winger being at Aston Villa at the age of 24 time looked to be running out. He has shown what he is capable of this year though and if Aston Villa do manage to survive the drop they will have Grealish to thank for it. Its rare that a player in the relegation zone makes it close to TOTS but if anything it shows how good he has been.
Heung Min Son - LM - OVR 87 Heung Min Son's season has been largely overshadowed by a few moments of madness which have seen him pick up several red cards this season but when the Korean has been on the field there is no denying just how good he has been. He has played in various positions and has by far been Spurs best player throughout the year. Nine goals and seven assists is what he has on paper and with several stand out moments I am surprised to see him lacking in most predictions.
Danny Ings - ST - OVR 76 To put into perspective of how important Danny Ings has been to Southampton this season, Southampton have only managed 35 goals and Ings has contributed to 16 of them. WIth the Saints sitting seven points ahead of relegation I am confident in saying that he has been the deciding factor in their fate this season. For that reason I have opted to include him over the likes of Abraham, DCL and Richarlison
