Top 50 Premiership Players?

New, comments

The guys over at The Score have come up with their list of 50 top players in the EPL right now.

Can't really argue with too many off them, although I'd like to see Torres a little higher come the end of the season - he's been great, but he can be better.

Also, apologies on the lack of posts over the holiday period. I'm enjoying some down time in the mountains and finding an internet connection is just about the last thing on my mind.

The list, in full, after the break - discussion in the comments!

50. Patrice Evra (Left back, Man Utd)
49. Benjani (Striker, Portsmouth)
48. Steve Finnan (Full back, Liverpool)
47. Yakubu (Striker, Everton)
46. Ashley Young (Winger, Aston Villa)
45. Jolean Lescott (Defender, Everton)
44. David Bentley (Winger, Blackburn)
43. Tomas Rosicky (Midfielder, Arsenal)
42. Olof Mellberg (Defender, Aston Villa)
41. Marcus Hahnemann (Goalkeeper, Reading)
40. Tim Cahill (Midfielder, Everton)
39. Owen Hargreaves (Midfielder, Man Utd)
38. Martin Petrov (Winger, Man City)
37. Ryan Giggs (Midfielder, Man Utd)
36. Obafemi Martins (Striker, Newcastle)
35. Edwin Van der Sar (Goalkeeper, Man Utd)
34. George Boateng (Midfielder, Middlesbrough)
33. Joe Cole (Midfielder, Chelsea)
32. Micah Richards (Defender, Man City)
31. Richard Dunne (Centre Half, Man City)
30. Gabby Agbonlahor (Forward, Aston Villa)
29. Ricardo Carvalho (Centre Half, Chelsea)
28. Gael Clichy (Left back, Arsenal)
27. Javier Mascherano (Midfielder, Liverpool)
26. William Gallas (Centre Half, Arsenal)
25. Emmanuel Adebayor (Striker, Arsenal)
24. Jamie Carragher (Centre Half, Liverpool)
23. Gareth Barry (Midfielder, Aston Villa)
22. Nicholas Anelka (Striker, Bolton)
21. Elano (Forward, Man City)
20. Shay Given (Goalkeeper, Newcastle)
19. Robbie Keane (Striker, Tottenham)
18. Xabi Alonso (Midfielder, Liverpool)
17. Alex Hleb (Midfielder, Arsenal) - This is my biggest gripe. Hleb shouldn't be allowed anywhere near the top 30, let alone rated above Xabi Alonso. He's been better this season but that doesn't say a lot considering some of his displays last year were worse that inept.
16. Petr Cech (Goalkeeper, Chelsea)
15. Carlos Tevez (Forward, Man Utd)
14. Dimitar Berbatov (Striker, Tottenham)
13. John Terry (Centre Half, Chelsea)
12. Rio Ferdinand (Centre Half, Man Utd)
11. Mikel Arteta (Midfielder, Everton)
10. Fernando Torres (Striker, Liverpool)
9. Wayne Rooney (Striker, Man Utd)
8. Kolo Toure (Centre Half, Arsenal)
7. Frank Lampard (Midfielder, Chelsea)
6. Nemanja Vidic (Centre Half, Man Utd)
5. Michael Essien (Midfielder, Chelsea)
4. Cesc Fabregas (Midfielder, Arsenal)
3. Steven Gerrard (Midfielder, Liverpool)
2. Didier Drogba (Striker, Chelsea)
1. Cristiano Ronaldo (Forward, Man Utd)
