The Best Number 10s in Club Football Today

  1. Sadio Mane:

The Senegalese attacker has been very instrumental in scoring and creating for Liverpool in the past two years and it is safe to say that he has repaid the faith shown in him by Jurgen Klopp. Mane with his incredible pace and goal scoring attributes is a lethal player on his day and surely one of the finest number 10s right now in the Premier league.

  1. Ondrej Duda:

Hertha Berlin have had an impressive start to their Bundesliga season this year and a lot of credit goes to Ondrej Duda for that. Duda has already scored 5 goals in seven appearances including goals against Bayern Munich and Schalke as he remains a key player for Hertha Berlin if they are to finish well this season.

  1. Gylfi Sigurdsson:

The Icelander had a slow start to the season but he has surely stepped up his game scoring four goals in the last four matches for Everton. Sigurdsson is one of the most underrated players in the Premier league and it is time his creative and goal scoring abilities get the due credit.

  1. James Maddison:

Maddison is one of the signings made by Leicester City this summer and it is safe to say that the Foxes have got a gem of a player. Maddison has looked very sharp while going forward, getting into pocket of spaces and also chipping in with some important goals. He has scored 3 goals and 2 assists this season, making him worthy to be included in this list.

  1. Dimitri Payet:

The Frenchman was stunning during his time at West Ham United in the Premier league and he has managed to gain a similar run of form with Marseille in the Ligue 1. He has already scored four times and assisted in five other goals. There are not many dead-ball specialist like him currently in the football world as he has turned out to be a valuable no. 10 for the French club.

  1. Harry Kane:

Kane deserves to be in the bracket of no. 9s but given that he wears the no.10 for Spurs, we couldn’t exclude him from this list. The English striker is a monster in front of the goal with his prolific finishing and positioning. He deserves to be more trophies in his career as he delivers almost every time he is needed to.

  1. Sergio Aguero:

There was no chance that Kun Aguero was skipped from this list. The Argentine striker is one of the legendary strikers in the Premier league now and it is only just to credit him immensely after what he has done for Manchester City. There are very few strikers in the world who have been as clinical and effective in front of the goal as Aguero has been.

  1. Neymar:

The Brazil captain is magical to watch with his mindboggling dribbling skills and creative abilities. He has been doing well with Paris Saint Germain and he is expected to do the same in the Champions league. With the talent and caliber he possesses, Neymar is one of the players to shine brighter in the future and we can only expect him to get more dangerous with time.

  1. Eden Hazard:

Chelsea have been blessed to have the likes of Eden Hazard play for them given what the Belgian has offered. Hazard with his nimble footwork, smart dribbling and playmaking abilities has been one of the best players in the Premier league. He had a stellar World Cup this year and already looks more dangerous than ever at club level, making him second to only Lionel Messi in this list.

  1. Lionel Messi:

There’s really no beating the real GOAT in this list. Messi has been a superstar for more than a decade now with his outrageous goal scoring and creative abilities. He has been the Messiah for Barcelona more than often and one does wonder what the Catalan club would have done without him. With his excellence and abilities on the ball, Messi is undoubtedly the best no.10 in the world.
