Ten Best Players In France’s Ligue 1 This Season: Former Arsenal & Chelsea Targets Included

Posted by

The statistically best players in France…

Sanchez injury latest: Alexis still not 100%
Arsenal Cavani: £40m bid imminent
Sturridge injury latest: Daniel will not play for England

Football statistics aggregator WhoScored rank a player’s performance by their overall contribution to a match, and the player is then rated out of 10 every game. Based on a player’s average performance, the ten in this list have outperformed anybody in France’s top flight so far…

Unsurprisingly following their superb start to the season, two Marseille stars feature, but strangely, eight goal Andre-Pierre Gignac does not.

Defenders dominate the list, which also features football legend Zlatan Ibrahimovic.

10) Simon Kjaer – Lille – 7.54 rating

Danish centre-back has been as solid as a rock so far, bagging one goal in six starts.
