Sorare Premier League

Gameweek 371: Sorare Premier League top performers


Manchester City took one step closer to securing a third successive Premier League title with a comfortable win over Everton while Arsenal crucially crumbled at home to Brighton to leave City four points clear.

At the other end of the league, Leeds missed out on the chance to claim a big three points with a 2-2 draw at home to Newcastle - despite missing a penalty - while Nottingham Forest also claimed a vital point away at Chelsea.

Each week 101 Great Goals will look at the best performing players in each position in Sorare Premier League to give you an insight into which players might be worth considering as we head into the next gameweek.

Goalkeeper

Nick Pope - 74

For the majority of the season, Pope has been one of the go-to selections in Sorare Premier League. Newcastle’s defensive form has taken a downturn since the new year which is why Pope’s form across the last 15 (L15) matches has taken a hit (45), but he was back at his best on Saturday against Leeds. Key to his overall rating of 74 was the penalty save from Patrick Bamford in the first half, but he made several other saves from inside the box to keep his score high. Pope’s ball distribution was the one thing holding him back from a higher score.

Pope’s breakdown of Sorare points in the game was:

  • General: 0
  • Goalkeeping: 12.5
  • Possession: 1.4
  • Attack: 0
  • Decisive: 60

Defender

Luke Shaw - 100

The return of Raphael Varane to full fitness meant one thing for Manchester United - Luke Shaw could return to left-back and provide them with the attacking thrust they had been denied while he filled in in the middle. He did so to great effect in Manchester Untied’s 2-0 win over Wolves on Saturday that looks likely to secure a top four finish. Even receiving a booking late on was not enough to detract from a perfect score, with Shaw effective in four winning tackles, a clean sheet, nine duels won and 14 accurate passes in the final third.

Shaw’s breakdown of Sorare points in the game was:

  • General: 19
  • Defence: 14
  • Possession: 29.9
  • Attack: 10.5
  • Decisive: 35

Midfielder

Eberechi Eze - 98

Eze’s form since Roy Hodgson’s return to Crystal Palace has been nothing short of remarkable. The exciting midfielder has averaged 71, with his latest score of 98 against Bournemouth the best of the lot thanks to a goal either side of half time. Playing in an attacking midfield role that encouraged freedom, Eze picked up minimal defensive points but thankfully his attacking output more than made up for it. His 24 accurate final third passes were crucial along with penalty area entries, but clearly his two goals were critical in his score.

Eze’s breakdown of Sorare points in the game was:

  • General: 6.5
  • Defence: 0
  • Possession: 11.9
  • Attack: 14.5
  • Decisive: 70

Forward

Raheem Sterling - 87

Sterling’s first season at Chelsea has not gone to plan. His own form has gone much the same way as the whole squad’s, with the occasional fine performance but a lack of consistency resulting in poor results and criticism. That changed on Saturday with two goals against relegation-threatened Nottingham Forest to secure a point for Chelsea and a season-best score of 87 for Sterling.

Sterling’s breakdown of Sorare points in the game was:

  • General: 1
  • Defence: 0
  • Possession: 4.7
  • Attack: 11
  • Decisive: 70
