The 2019/2020 season is now at an end, this makes it a great time to look back at which players performed the best during the campaign. Below I’ve listed the top 10 highest scoring midfielders. This list should help form a base for team selection for next season.
1. Sterling (Man City) – 279 points
2. De Bruyne (Man City) – 269 points
3. Mane (Liverpool) – 244 points
4. Mahrez (Man City) – 208 points
5. Traore (Wolves) – 202 points
6. Willian (Chelsea) – 185 points
7. Grealish (Aston Villa) – 157 points
8. Pulisic (Chelsea) – 155 points
9. Pepe (Arsenal) – 149 points
10. Fernandes (Man Utd) – 130 points
Once again the majority of the top 10 highest scoring midfielders are made up from players within the top 4-6 teams in the Premier League, with the exception of Grealish and Traore. I always tend not to look much further than these teams when selecting players and the stats seem to back this up. I think the key to selecting midfielders is choosing those who play in a more advanced role, making them more likely to pick up 10+ goals and a good number of assists. It was also interesting to see a midfielder taking the top spot as the highest scoring player on the game. Sterling is the perfect example of the type of midfielder I’d be looking for. For me the name that stands out most on this list is Traore. He started the season at only 1.5m and must surely be the bargain of the campaign with over 200 points on the board. Another one that jumps out is Fernandes, he only joined Man Utd in the January window so it’s a fantastic achievement to reach the top 10 compared to others who had a full season. He’s certainly on my radar as a potential big point scorer next season. For the upcoming season I personally won’t be looking much further than most of the names on the list above when it comes to player selection. Time and time again at the end of the season the same names appear and I can see this trend continuing.
