Top Five Dribblers In The Premier League From Gameweek 12
Every fan dreams of watching their club play entertaining and attacking football, and a major part of that style is dribbling. Effective dribbling is almost considered a lost art since there seems to be little room for that in today’s preferred style of high-pressing games. However, when one looks at some of the best players from previous years and modern times, it is clear that dribbling forms a key aspect of every footballer’s overall growth. Here’s a look at the top 5 dribblers of the Premier League in the new season so far, according to stats from WhoScored.
Harry Kane – Tottenham Hotspur
Kane continues to be a peripheral figure at Tottenham. Although the player failed to do much for his club against North London rivals Arsenal, there is no denying Kane’s importance. He managed to make his way into the list of top dribblers and is topping the list as well. Barring all the talk of Spurs being the Harry Kane team, the fact remains that the Englishman is one of the most astounding footballers of our times. In 11 appearances for the club this season, Kane has managed a total of 36 dribbles.
Philippe Coutinho – Liverpool
Coutinho continues to be a figure of strength and dominance for Liverpool. His contributions to their attack remain unparalleled and the Brazilian playmaker’s creativity has truly changed the course of the Reds’ game. Against Southampton especially, Coutinho was at his best and he linked up really well with Liverpool’s front men. The player has made a total of 34 dribbles so far.
Kevin De Bruyne – Manchester City
One player who has truly made a mark this season is Kevin De Bruyne. He only appears to be moving in an upward trajectory, firmly establishing himself as one of City’s finest. Having achieved the landmark milestone of being the fastest midfielder to be involved in 50 goals in the Premier League, De Bruyne has made 27 dribbles so far.
Paul Pogba – Manchester United
Back after a serious injury problem, Paul Pogba took up his usual important role for the Red Devils against Newcastle United. After making a rocky start to the new season, Pogba has sparked a remarkable turnaround in form. He is not only being an improved version of himself but also played a pivotal role against the Magpies. Moreover, it is stunning to note that the player has made 23 dribbles in his 5 appearances so far.
Sergio Aguero – Manchester City
Aguero is easily a Manchester City veteran and his performances only show that he is going from strength-to-strength at the club. Despite a car crash that saw him on sidelines for a while, Aguero is back to producing his finest performances for Pep Guardiola’s men. Be it his pace or his skill in front of the goal, the Argentine superstar’s impact is unmatched for City. He has managed to make a total of 20 dribbles in 8 appearances.
