Paul Pogba

Unsurprising really considering the appeal of the happy-go-lucky French international. The most expensive Premier League player of all time may not have quite lived up to the fee as of yet, but he was part of a trio of trophies won by the Red Devils last season. 

Romelu Lukaku

It was a no-brainer for Manchester United when the option of swooping for Belgian frontman Romelu Lukaku came about. Lukaku has been in inspiring form already with just four games into the campaign, scoring four goals.

Eden Hazard

Chelsea's main superstar has been absent for the first few weeks of this season through injury but that has not stopped the Belgian racking up the shirt sales, with the winger undoubtedly one of the most talented players in the top flight.

Alexandre Lacazette

Arsenal's new record signing is expected to score freely in the Premier League, after an impressive spell in France. The former Lyon man has quickly found his way into the hearts of Gunners supporters, with a couple of early goals in the season. 

Marcus Rashford

Rashford's rise to the top has meteoric to say the least and the teenage striker is now a regular for both Manchester United and England, which ultimately means he has becoming the perfect role model for budding young footballers.

Harry Kane

Harry Kane embodies Spurs and his commitment to the North London club means he will remain a hero for many years to come. A lot is resting on the shoulders of the England international striker but he seems to be coping with the responsibility well. 

Sadio Mane

Mane has been simply unstoppable since swapping the St Mary's Stadium for Anfield and that has earned the Senegalese winger the top spot within the Merseyside club when it comes to selling shirts with his name on the back. 

Lionel Messi

Being the world's best player means that you gather millions of admirers around the world and those in the United Kingdom are no different in idolising the Argentinian forward who continues to lead Barcelona to glory.

Philippe Coutinho

There could have been a mass burning of Philippe Coutinho shirts by Reds fans had Barcelona and the player himself had their way this summer. Yet, the Brazilian magician remains a Liverpool player and it shouldn't take him too long to win the hearts back of his followers. 

Zlatan Ibrahimovic

It's not surprising to see the Swedish enigma in a list of this sort, with even those who despise United tempted to put the striker's name on the back of a shirt. Zlatan will once again grace the Premier League this season, after signing a contract extension.

Dele Alli

The great hope of English football and arguably the best young talent in Europe, Spurs midfielder Dele Alli continues to defy expectation with his goalscoring exploits and stand-out performances. 

Roberto Firmino

Liverpool fans have been calling for a new hero ever-since Luis Suarez left for Barcelona and Brazil international Roberto Firmino has the potential to be that player for the Reds, with Jurgen Klopp using him as a false number nine.

Matt Ritchie

With Newcastle United's parent company Sports Direct compiling the list, the inclusion of several of the Magpies' players does make for suspicious reading. Nonetheless, Scottish winger Matt Ritchie has already endeared himself to the Toon army after one season. 

Ander Herrera

Ander Herrera has been a success since joining Manchester United from Athletic Bilbao and his hard-working performances in the heart of the Red Devils' midfield have made him a firm favourite of the fans. 

Cristiano Ronaldo

The shoe-in for this year's Ballon d'Or is still a popular choice for fans to have on the back of their Real Madrid shirts, despite the Portuguese superstar leaving the Premier League back in 2009.
