Aleksandar Mitrovic (Fulham), Bernardo Silva (Man City), James Maddison (Leicester) and Marcus Rashford (Manchester United) ranked lower than the two Nigeria-eligible players.
Raheem Sterling was being tipped to win the award ahead of his Manchester City teammate, Leroy Sane and Crystal Palace exciting fullback, Aaron Wan-Bissaka in that order; Liverpool’s Trent Alexander-Arnold completed the top five rated players.
