Our favourite footballers for every position in 2019: Part 1

2019 is coming to an end and we’ve listed out our favourite footballers for every position!

Striker: Sergio Aguero

Aguero is Manchester City’s all-time leading goal scorer and four times Premier League champion, but we don’t think he receives the plaudits he deserves. It’s not a fair evaluation if you compared the total number of goals scored by strikers in the Premier League because any stat is bound to favour those with a longer Premier League career. The right way to evaluate whether a footballer is good or not is through the goals per game ratio. Based on this stat, we can clearly see how deadly Aguero is on the pitch!

Right backs: Trent Alexander-Arnold

The 21-year-old Liverpool player is regarded as the best right-back in the Premier League at the moment. Sky Sports pundit Gary Neville claimed that Alexander-Arnold was one of the most impressive full-backs he’d seen in an attacking sense. Let’s just hope he’ll only get better with time!

Centre backs: Virgil van Dijk

The captain of the Netherlands national team is known for his strength, leadership qualities and aerial ability. Gifted with exceptional pace, Van Dijk won the UEFA player of the year award and was even shortlisted for the Ballon d’Or!

Left backs: Andrew Robertson

The Liverpool player is regarded as the best left-backs in the world. He doesn’t get injured easily making it possible for him to develop the right momentum for every game. We’ll let his moves on the pitch do the talking;
