We’ve finally got around to totalling up the fans’ player ratings from every Premier League game in the 2017/18 and we can reveal the best and worst individual performers, as well as the best and worst team performances.

It might have been a season to forget after ending in relegation, but it’s worth looking back at how the fans rated each player for each game and see who came out on top.

Young right back Connor Roberts’ place in the top just goes to prove how late the decision was to bring him into the first team. He might have only played four top flight games, but he averaged a 6.95/10 rating across those four games.

There’s no surprise to see goalkeeper Lukasz Fabianski in second place with 6.84/10, with centre-back Mike van der Hoorn third.

Interesting too, is Roque Mesa’s top 5 place – making 16 appearances – those appearances will also include substitute appearances if he played a minimum 15 minutes.

Jordan Ayew doesn’t appear in the top 10 despite finishing the season as our top goalscorer with 11 goals, he averaged a 5.44/10 rating down in 17th place.

 

Overall Top 10 Players

Player Average Fan Rating Number of Matches
1 Connor Roberts 6.95 4
2 Łukasz Fabiański 6.84 38
3 Mike van der Hoorn 6.64 27
4 Àngel Rangel 6.63 2
5 Roque Mesa 6.52 16
6 Federico Fernández 6.47 31
7 Leon Britton 6.28 7
8 Wilfried Bony 6.27 15
9 Kyle Bartley 5.98 5
10 Oli McBurnie 5.97 7

 

Worst 10 Players

The usual suspects in the bottom 10 – as rated by the fans. The only player listed below who is likely to earn a move back to a Premier League club is Jordan Ayew. He had a forgetful first half of the season but made it up with a vast improvement following Carlos Carvalhal’s arrival.

A number of the players below will likely be called upon next season in the Championship and they’ll have to up their game in 2018/19.

Player Average Fan Rating Number of Matches
1 Jordan Ayew 5.44 36
2 Martin Olsson 5.33 36
3 Andy King 5.13 10
4 Sam Clucas 4.94 28
5 Kyle Naughton 4.82 35
6 Luciano Narsingh 4.78 15
7 Leroy Fer 4.76 23
8 Tom Carroll 4.37 34
9 Wayne Routledge 3.98 9
10 Jay Fulton 3.71 2

 

Top 10 Team Performances

Moving on to best and worst team performances, we totalled up the players’ ratings for each game and number of votes to get the overall average rating per match.

And according to the fans’ player ratings, the best performance of the season was….

The goalless draw at Spurs….where we barely had the ball and defended for 90 minutes.

I expected to see our home win over Arsenal in the top 3, but it only made 12th with a rating of 6.04/10

Match Average Fan Rating
1 Tottenham (A) – D0-0 7.46
2 Crystal Palace (A) – W2-0 7.33
3 Liverpool (H) – W1-0 7.08
4 Bournemouth (H) – D0-0 7.06

10 Watford (A) – D2-1 6.31

 

Top 10 Best Individual Performances

Here’s a look at the best individual performances of the season, which is skewed you could say as Leon Britton’s final appearance as a sub in the final game of the season against Stoke comes out on top. Fabianski closely follows in second place with a 9.23/10 rating from the same game. He featured 3 times in the top 10, as well as defender Federico Fernandez.
