Here, we take a look at midfielders who have scored the most goals so far this season.

Emile Smith Rowe has become one of the most important players for Arsenal ever since breaking through into the first team in the 2020/21 season and is now one of the first names on the team sheet.

The 21-year-old has become the Gunners driving force this season, scoring nine goals and providing two assists so far and his performances from midfield have been the base for their push to finish in the top four come the end of the campaign.

Bruno Fernandes continues to remain Manchester United's talisman despite the arrival of Cristiano Ronaldo in the summer and while he has come in for criticism for his performances in recent times - he has still managed to score nine goals and provide six assists in 25 league appearances so far this season.

The midfielder is yet to hit top form this year and if he does then United stand a great chance of finishing in the top four in the league.
