Premier League

5 players who have over performed in the Premier League this season (2021)

The bookmakers set the tone for the new Premier League season by naming their favorites for the title and individual awards before the season begins. 


They have a reputation for getting a lot of things perfectly on the money, but football is unpredictable, and the tables may quickly change. 


A few players have been renowned as the Premier League's face and a representation of the high level of football played in England's top tier. On the other hand, the darkhorses can never be counted out. 


This Premier League season, which is still in its early stages, has produced some incredible shockers that few expected to rise to the occasion. The five Premier League players whose per capita income is the highest are listed below.

Andros Townsend, No. 1 


Everton's second-half goal blitz over Burnley is capped by Andros Townsend's stunning strike.

The fans of a team do not always lament the departure of a free agent. Similarly, not every free agent, especially those over 30, receives a warm welcome when joining a new team. 


Willian's latest Premier League disaster is an example of this. Andros Townsend had a similar predicament. 


There was little affection for him when he left Crystal Palace after nearly 185 appearances in all competitions. 


There was no reason to be anxious about losing a skilled professional for nothing. It was another another financially lucrative signing for Everton supporters.

Shane Duffy, No. 2

When a person is not in his ideal mind space, their body does not move the way they want it to move, no matter how hard they try. Shane Duffy's previous year has been a nightmare, as he has battled with both personal loss and a drop in form. 


Celtic fans were not friendly to him while he was on loan. 


Duffy had been with Brighton since 2016, and in 2018-19, he was voted Player of the Season. He dropped down the pecking order due to a fall in form, and Ben White took his place. 


Due to the loss of Ben White and other injury problems this season, Duffy was given his first start.

Demarai Gray, 3 


Demarai Gray of Everton, like Lionel Messi of PSG, is one of the bargains of the summer transfer window, according to colleague Andros Townsend. 

Premier League fans are familiar with Demarai Gray's name. He went to Leicester City from Birmingham City five years ago, during the club's fairytale season under Claudio Ranieri. Leicester paid his £3.7 million release clause in order to provide depth to their squad, with the expectation that he can flourish in the future. 


However, he was never truly a breakout star at the King Power until 2020, and he started more league games than he did as a starter. Gray joined Everton for £6 million as a rather unimpressive signing.
