5. Raul Jimenez
Wolves are performing well under new coach Bruno Lage. The defense of the “Wolves” is strictly organized, only conceding 16 goals (2nd least in the Premier League 2021/22). The midfielders play diligently and mobile. However, public goods have poor performance.
Raul Jimenez inexplicably misses delicious opportunities. He has only scored 4 goals and provided 2 assists in 19 appearances. It can be seen that the terrible injury last season affected Jimenez. Hopefully the Mexican star will return to himself in the second leg.
4. Harry Kane
The Three Lions player got off to a bad start. That is the result of Kane’s frequent plowing last season, plus the controversy about the future. The arrival of Antonio Conte partly helped the 28-year-old striker improve his performance, but that was not enough.
Last season Kane had 23 goals and 14 assists, thereby winning the Premier League 2020/21 Top Scorer and Premier League assist double award. As long as the English striker reproduces that form, Spurs will have a chance to reach the top 4.
3. Jack Grealish
Last summer’s transfer window, Man City broke Paul Pogba’s record when spending £ 100 million to recruit Jack Grealish, making the English striker the most expensive deal in Premier League history.
However, Grealish has yet to prove he is worth the money spent by The Citizens, with only 2 goals and 2 assists after 16 appearances. Obviously, the Etihad Stadium team expects more from the Three Lions player.
2. Jadon Sancho
Sancho is considered one of the best attacking stars in Europe in Dortmund, costing Man Utd £73 million to recruit him in the summer of 2021. However, Sancho has only scored 1 goal in 17 matches. to play in the Premier League 2021/22.
Man Utd clearly need more from the 21-year-old striker. Hopefully, he will recreate the form he used to have in the Dortmund shirt, helping the Red Devils compete for a place in the top 4.
1. Romelu Lukaku
Chelsea spent £98m to bring Lukaku back to Stamford Bridge. The Belgian striker had an impressive start. However, then the former Inter star fell inexplicably. So far, he has only had 5 goals in the Premier League.
Lukaku confided that Thomas Tuchel’s tactical change made it difficult for him. Chelsea expect the 28-year-old star to prove valuable, helping them continue to chase Man City in the championship race.
