Mahrez was the only competition, and Zaha is better than him.

According to a transfer stat website, Wilf's rated as the 158th best player in the World, Mahrez is rated 124th. Everyone else mentioned is a fair bit behind them both.

Granted, the ratings are pretty much based on market value of the players, so not entirely accurate.

In answer to the thread question - yes. He’s the best player outside of the top 6.

If you’re including the top 6... I think there’s quite a few better than him - Kane, De Bruyne, Silva, Hazard, Pogba, Eriksen, Sanchez. Probably a few more too.

Equally though, you’re right that if he was at a bigger club he would be talked of in the same way as the above.

It must be between Mahrez, Vardy, Sigurdsson, Zaha, Arnautovic, Lanzini. Probably 2nd after Mahrez, maybe 1st.

Yes I think he is. Only Mahrez pushes him close. Maybe Sigurdsson last season as well but Zaha is streets ahead of him now.

This is probably based on goals and assists. Think Zaha has 4 goals and 1 assist this season. That obviously doesn’t include penalties and involvement in the lead up to other goals. Zaha tends to have a hand in most of ours. Mahrez has 7 goals and 7 assists I believe.

When I checked the stats I was a little surprised that Wilf’s we’re so low.

I think he’s on par with Hazard and better than Pogba

If Yannick gets back to his best he will challenging for sure. And some of the top 6 are after Johnny Evans so he must be thereabouts.

Yannick was unplayable on his day but no way is he a top player. Don't get me wrong he was great to watch but he only had a good game 1/4.

I always found it staggering people said he was better than Wilfried.

Zaha has more trickery about him and puts in a lot of graft.

Marhez is good, but is afraid to tackle and is a bit of a pussy.

About three years ago there was a poll Wilf v Yannick on the site, here or Hol can't remember, and out of the hundreds who voted Yannick got around 60% if memory serves. I think you are forgetting how good he was then and he was consistent. Who caqn forget him taking the micky out of Chelsea at The Bridge? Plus, Wilf has improved that 10% he needed to in the intervening years so obviously there was room for that. He had a few of us tearing our hair out with his decsion making.

That's why we got £30mill for Yannick back then and at a time when Tottenham were reportedly going to offer £15mill for Wilf.

Everything has flipped now, of course.

I would say Mahrez has more guile in the box when it comes to finishing. God if Wilf had that he would be the perfect player.

If you're looking at it from a neutral perspective without Palace bias, Mahrez, Vardy & Arnautovic are all better.

Yeah, Kyle Walker had Wilf in his pocket if we are being honest about it and he wasn't great v Burnley.

Still room for improvement maybe before he's ready for the next step up. Thought he was there but maybe not.
