Sterling enjoyed the best summer of his life with England, but he remains a back-up option at Manchester City, with a clear link developing between Pep Guardiola's side's success and the 26-year-lack old's of starting opportunities.

Conor Coady, a defender for Wolves, had a greater impact in the dressing room at Euro 2020, but his Premier League performances have yet to resemble any type of form, with the centre-back yet another Three Lions player bullied by Brentford's Toney this season.

John Stones is another huge disappointment, since he has failed to play a minute for Manchester City this season despite being available for several weeks. In England's September matches, he was, nonetheless, a crucial player.
