While Harry Kane and Raheem Sterling scored the majority of England's goals at Euro 2020, they have struggled in front of goal in the Premier League so far. 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.
Kane, on the other hand, completed last season as the Premier League's top goalscorer and assist creator, but has yet to score in England's top division, with Son Heung-Min taking over as the club's striker.
Despite his £73 million transfer to Manchester United, Jadon Sancho has had a sluggish starts this season. Sancho's last pass has been missing in quality thus far, and the 21-year-old still appears to be impacted by his penalty miss in the Euro 2020 final.
Phil Foden of Manchester City was expected to have a successful summer with England, but he has underwhelmed. The winger has been out due to injury, but he is still waiting for his first City start of the season.
Kalvin Phillips was another England player who had a terrific tournament, but his club team Leeds is yet to win a game this season, and Phillips has yet to demonstrate the midfield control and skill he shown over the summer.
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.
Since appearing in Chelsea's Champions League final in May, Ben Chilwell has only played seven minutes of football. The Blues defender did not play a single minute for England at Euro 2020, and he is under pressure to get back into shape.
