The Results

Eden Hazard (Chelsea) – 31 (16 goals, 15 assists)

Eden Hazard will be scratching his head wondering how he didn’t make the Premier League’s team of the season after scoring 16 times and assisting 15 other goals. If he is to leave Stamford Bridge in the summer, Chelsea may find it hard to find a replacement for someone who was directly involved in 49.2 per cent of their league goals.

Mohamed Salah (Liverpool) – 30 (22 goals, 8 assists)

Critics labelled Mohamed Salah a one-season wonder after scoring 32 times last season, but he responded with 22 this term. He also chipped in with eight assists to finish one behind Chelsea’s Eden Hazard’s 31 goal involvement. Salah finished seven ahead of team-mate Sadio Mane who also scored 22 times, but only managed one assist.

Sergio Aguero (Man City) – 29 (21 goals, 8 assists)

Hat-tricks in back-to-back home games against Arsenal and Chelsea helped Sergio Aguero win the MVP award at thew Etihad. He finish with key involvement in 29 to finish third in the list having finished the season with 21 goals and eight assists. He also hit the woodwork eight times.

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang (Arsenal) – 27 (22 goals, 5 assists)

Arsenal supporters will be encouraged with the strike force they have at the Emirates with Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Alexandre Lacazette. Aubameyang pipped his colleague to the MVP award for the Gunners scoring 22 of the 27 goals he contributed to while the Frenchman was directly involved with 21 goals.

Callum Wilson (Bournemouth) – 23 (14 goals, 9 assists)

Callum Wilson enhanced his reputation with another productive campaign that saw him make his England debut against the United States in November and played a crucial role in 23 goals for the Cherries scoring 14 and assisting nine others.

Jamie Vardy (Leicester) – 22 (18 goals, 4 assists)

Jamie Vardy’s contribution to Leicester’s season saw him be the most productive player with 18 goals scored and four assists. His best run of goals came towards the end of the season when he netted 11 times in 11 games.

Paul Pogba (Man Utd) – 22 (13 goals, 9 assists)

Manchester United supporters aren’t sure what to make of French World Cup winner Paul Pogba who was the most creative player at Old Trafford with direct involvement in 22 goals, scoring 13. However, critics are quick to point out that seven of those goals were penalties scored after his time-consuming 18-step approach.

Harry Kane (Tottenham) – 21 (17 goals, 4 assists)

Despite missing 10 games, skipper Harry Kane ended the season with one more goal contribution than Christian Eriksen who had 12 assists and eight goals. Kane, who scored the last of his 17 goals in a 2-1 loss at Southampton on March 9, also provided four assists before an ankle injury ended his season prematurely.

Raul Jimenez (Wolves) – 20 (13 goals, 7 assists)

The good news for Wolves fans is that Raul Jimenez will be back at Molineux next season after making his loan move from Benfica permanent. They will want to see the creative forward repeat his achievements this season when he scored 13 goals and had seven assists.

Gylfi Sigurdsson (Everton) – 19 (13 goals, 6 assists)

Gylfi Sigurdsson and Richarlison had their own personal battle for the most productive player at Goodison Park. But the award went to the Iceland star after he set up Theo Walcatt for his goal in a 2-2 draw at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium on the last day of the season.

Salomon Rondon (Newcastle) – 18 goals (11 goals, 7 assists)

Ayoze Perez (12) may have scored more goals than Salomon Rondon, but the Venezuela forward pipped Perez to the MVP award thanks to his seven assists to leave him at the top of the Magpies table with contributions to 18 goals compared to Perez’s 14.

Wilfried Zaha (C Palace) – 15 (10 goals, 5 assists)

The MVP award at Selhurst Park looked to be going to Luka Milivojevic who scored 12 goals and had two assists. But Wilfried Zaha’s two assists on the final day of the season saw him take the award to finish the campaign with 10 goals and five assists.

Gerard Deulofeu (Watford) – 15 (10 goals, 5 assists)

Before Watford’s season finale at home to West Ham, Gerard Deulofeu and Troy Deeney were tied with contributions to 14 goals with nine goals and five assists each. So when Deulofeu scored the Hornets’ only goal in a 4-1 defeat, it gave him the edge over his club captain.

Glenn Murray (Brighton) – 14 (13 goals, 1 assist)

The Seagulls avoided relegation thanks to the 14 goals Glenn Murray was involved in. He scored Brighton’s first goal of the season in a 3-2 win over Manchester United and netted their last – and his 13th – in a 4-1 defeat at home to champions Manchester City.

Ashley Barnes (Burnley) – 14 goals (12 goals, 2 assists)

The Clarets pulled away from the relegation zone in the second half of the season with Ashley Barnes playing a crucial role for the Clarets scoring 12 and creating two more. Barnes scored in four successive games at the end of January and most of February.

Alexsandar Mitrovic (Fulham) – 14 (11 goals, 3 assists)

Fulham did well to keep Alexsandar Mitrovic for their return to the Premier League, but the on loan striker from Newcastle was unable to keep the Craven Cottage side up despite scoring 11 times and assisting three other goals.

Marko Arnautovic (West Ham) – 14 (10 goals, 4 assists)

Marko Arnautovic looked to be on his way out of the London Stadium in January, but a U-turn meant he saw out the rest of the season. The Austrian took the most valuable player award after his direct involvement in 14 goals which includes the goal he scored in a 4-1 win at Watford.

Nathan Redmond (Southampton) – 10 (6 goals, 4 assists)

Ironically, the final goal of Southampton’s season was created and scored by the two players most involved in Saints goals. Nathan Redmond scored the opener against Huddersfield after being set up by Danny Ings to leave both players involved in 10 goals. It was Redmond’s sixth goal and Ings’ third assist.

Victor Camarasa (Cardiff) – 9 (5 goals, 4 assists)

There hasn’t been too much to cheer about for the Bluebirds, but Victor Camarasa took the award for being Cardiff’s MVP with direct involvement in nine goals including his winner in a 1-0 victory at Leicester between Christmas and New Year.

Steve Mounie (Huddersfield) – 5 (2 goals, 3 assists)

Huddersfield’s relegation can be put down to one thing – a lack of goals. A total of 22 goals in 38 games was two short of the unwanted record still held by Derby who scored 20 in the 2007/08 season. Steve Mounie had a hand in the most goals scoring two and creating three more.
