The Premier League is the most exciting and entertaining league in all of Europe. There has been a major power shift in Europe in recent times. Two of the last three UEFA Champions League finals were played between Premier League sides.

Teams like Manchester United, Liverpool, Arsenal, Manchester City, Chelsea and even Tottenham Hotspur, among others, have plenty of talented players. These teams have multiple individuals who can win matches all by themselves if the need arises.

On that note, let’s take a look at the five players who have won the most man-of-the-match awards in the Premier League this season.

#5 Jamie Vardy (Leicester City) – 5 man-of-the-match awards

Jamie Vardy didn’t have a great 2020-21 season by his own lofty standards. The Englishman struggled for a while last term and ended the campaign with 15 goals and nine assists in 34 Premier League appearances.

He has scored nine goals and provided an assist in 15 appearances in the Premier League so far this season.

#4 Michail Antonio (West Ham United) – 5 man-of-the-match awards

West Ham United have been one of the surprise packages this season. They were widely thought to have hit their ceiling when they finished sixth in the Premier League last term. However, David Moyes and co. are on a mission to do better than last term.

His hold-up play is excellent and he can also chip in with some delicious finishes. Antonio is also great at setting up his teammates to score once he gets into dangerous areas. The 31-year-old has won five Premier League man-of-the-match awards this term.

He has scored six goals and provided four assists in 16 Premier League appearances so far this season.

#3 Cristiano Ronaldo (Manchester United) – 5 man-of-the-match awards

Manchester United endured a very rocky start to the 2021-22 season. In fact, they did decently in the first few weeks before going on a downward spiral which culminated in Ole Gunnar Solskjaer getting the sack.

The Red Devils wouldn’t have made it past the group stage of the UEFA Champions League if not for Ronaldo’s goals. He has been in great form in the Premier League too of late. Ronaldo has now scored seven goals and provided two assists in 13 Premier League appearances so far this term.

The 36-year-old has won five man-of-the-match awards in the Premier League so far this season.

#2 Heung-Min Son (Tottenham Hotspur) – 6 man-of-the-match awards

Gone are the days when pundits could smugly refer to Tottenham Hotspur as the ‘Harry Kane’ team. The Englishman has done very little so far this term. Meanwhile, the ever reliable Heung-Min Son has been doing his very best once again but things haven’t been easy for Tottenham Hotspur as a team.

The South Korean international has been a difference maker for Spurs this term, scoring six goals and providing two assists in 13 Premier League appearances. Son has won six man-of-the-match awards already this season.

#1 Mohamed Salah (Liverpool) – 9 man-of-the-match awards

Mohamed Salah could very well be the most in-form player in world football right now. The Egyptian international has been in sublime form for the Merseysiders, scoring plenty of goals and racking up assists like it’s child’s play.

Salah has scored 15 goals and provided nine assists in just 17 Premier League appearances so far this term. He has been adjudged man-of-the-match on nine occasions in the Premier League so far this term.
