The Englishman also occupies the top ten in this category with an overall score of 86.6, while Gabriel Jesus comes in as number 12 among his Premier League peers with 85.1

Foot man in shape

According to FPL statistics, Phil Foden is Manchester City’s strongest player.

The form indicator is calculated based on a player’s average score per game. match in the previous 30 days.

And thanks to Foot’s three goals and two assists in his last five Premier League appearances, the 21-year-old currently boasts an impressive figure of 7.7.

Only five other players can improve that figure, according to the FPL, but one of them is Mason Mount, whose rating of 8.3 can be isolated for him snatching a hat-trick against Norwich in October.
