With ten clean sheets apiece over the 2018-19 season, it is Ricardo Pereira’s (£6.0m) attacking exploits that have seen him priced £0.5m more than Ben Chilwell (£5.5m) for 2019-20. Two goals and three assists more than his left-sided teammate saw Pereira average an extra 0.89 points per appearance and score 14 additional bonus points. However, Pereira did have the advantage of repeatedly playing as a right-sided winger before Claude Puel got the sack. Exclusively employed as a right-back after Rodgers was handed the job, Pereira recorded just two assists in the final ten games of the season – the same number as Chilwell.
Verdict: Ben Chilwell
