Premier League

3 Best English players in the English Premier League based on current form (2021).

This season, the Premier League has unearthed even more English treasures. Some newbies have seized the stage by storm, while others have had their careers resurrected. If they keep up their impressive start to the season for the rest of the season, England boss Gareth Southgate will have a difficult time selecting his best team.


On that topic, these are the Premier League's three best English players right now:

Patrick Vieira's arrival to Crystal Palace during the summer heralded the start of a new era. Under the new manager, the Premier League team has adopted a fresh strategy and playing style. As contrast to most of his predecessors, Vieira has attempted to enforce a possession-based style of play, and has made a few fresh acquisitions to that aim.


Over the summer, Palace signed Conor Gallagher on loan from Chelsea, and he has played a key role for his new team in the Premier League thus far. Gallagher has taken advantage of his newfound freedom after Vieira gave him the go-ahead to wander around the pitch.

In six Premier League appearances, the young Englishman has two goals and one assist. Gallagher's performances are expected to help Palace keep their Premier League place for another season.

Gallagher is expected to return to Chelsea at the end of his loan, where he may struggle to get regular playing time. If Chelsea is unable to offer Gallagher first-team football based on his recent performances, he will undoubtedly be pursued by a number of other teams.


Demarai Gray

Demarai Gray never managed to secure his spot at Leicester City, despite winning the Premier League title in 2016. The then-20-year-old had always had tremendous speed, but he needed to work on other elements of his game, particularly his decision-making in the final third.

Gray has returned to England with Everton after a five-year spell with Bayer Leverkusen, when he showed flashes of his true potential. He's also benefitted by Everton's new manager, Rafa Benitez, who has chosen the Englishman as his first-choice left-winger.

Gray has earned his manager's trust with three goals and one assist in seven league appearances so far this season. Gray's finest years are still ahead of him at 25, and he's only 25 years old. If his recent performances are any indication, both the player and his club are in for a great season.


Andros Townsend

Andros Townsend, who is only 30, appears to have been alive for a long time. Everton appears to be the first Premier League team to fully exploit Townsend's potential.


Townsend made the switch to the blue half of Merseyside after leaving Crystal Palace in the summer and has established himself as the ring winger. Rafa Benitez's presence in the Everton dugout caused controversy before the season began, as the Spaniard's history with Liverpool split Everton fans.

Townsend's blazing start to the Premier League season, on the other hand, has guaranteed that all of that turmoil is now forgotten. Four of the seven league games have seen the winger play the entire 90 minutes, with three goals and two assists to show for it.

Townsend's performance has been a key factor in the Toffees' early-season success. After seven games, they are currently ranked fifth in the league rankings. Townsend might wind up being one of the season's best signings if he can continue his current level of play.
