It will surprise no-one to see Liverpool prodigy Raheem Sterling near the top of the list, and Reds legend Gerrard is up there too. Some people might be surprised to see players like Barton and Milner in the top few players. Jack Wilshere is not on the list.
Stuart Downing is the shock chart topper, the stat showing the truth in the theory that playing at the tip of West Ham’s diamond has seen him reborn as a player.
Arsenal Transfer Rumours – Khedira and Cavani on the list.
