Sky Sports Power Rankings team of the season

Power Rankings XI: Week five

Liverpool players dominate the Sky Sports Power Rankings team of the season.

Four of Jurgen Klopp's men made the cut, however, there are no representatives from Jose Mourinho's Manchester United. 

The Sky Sports Power Rankings - published every week - reflect a player's game-by-game performance, based on 32 different matchday stats. 

Here are the top performers in each position, based on their displays since the start of the 2016/17 campaign...

Premier League team of the season


Arsenal goalkeeper Petr Cech is the top-ranked goalkeeper so far this season, according to the Sky Sports Power Rankings.

Only Chelsea goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois has kept more clean sheets (6) than Cech (4) - but the Gunners' 'keeper has made almost twice as many saves (29) as his Stamford Bridge successor. 

Ahead of Cech, his Arsenal team-mate Laurent Koscielny takes up one of the centre-back positions, alongside north London derby rival Jan Vertonghen.

Vertonghen and right-back Kyle Walker have helped Tottenham establish the best defence in the Premier League - Spurs have conceded just six goals in 11 games this term. 

Meanwhile, James Milner's successful conversion to left-back under Jurgen Klopp has produced performances warranting his place in the team. He's also chipped in with a league-high four penalties. 


Attacking players dominate a midfield packed with talent.

The Premier League's leading assist maker (6), Kevin de Bruyne - the only Manchester City player in the side - forms a formidable central midfield pairing with Liverpool Philippe Coutinho, who has directly contributed to 10 goals this season (five goals, five assists).

On the flanks are Liverpool's hit summer signing Sadio Mane and Chelsea's back-in-form Eden Hazard, who have 13 goals between them this term.
