Bengaluru, Nov 9: The international break has halted the progress of the English Premier League after the completion of game week 11.

Jurgen Klopp's Liverpool FC are at the top of the table with 26 points followed by Chelsea FC, Manchester City and Arsenal FC.

Liverpool attacking trio consisting of Philippe Coutinho, Sadio Mane and Roberto Firmino are in a red hot form at the moment. The Reds have netted 30 goals so far.

Pep Guardiola's Manchester City finally lost their first place to Liverpool after 10 game weeks. Antonio Conte's Chelsea FC regained their momentum from the past 3 weeks and are now placed second.

The only big team not to feature among the top 5 teams are Manchester United who have had a topsy-turvy campaign.

As almost one-third of the league is over here are top 5 attacking players:

Kevin De Bruyne

Kevin De Bruyne joined Manchester City last summer but has blossomed under manager Pep Guardiola this season. The Belgian international has played 10 matches this season for the Cityzens scoring 2 goals and 6 assists. The midfielder has been revelation for Guardiola and City and might prove to be a guiding force for the club's success.

Philippe Coutinho

Jurgen Klopp has utilised Philippe Coutinho in a much advanced role this season. Fielding his team in a 4-3-3 formation, Klopp plays Coutinho on the left side of the upfront trio. Coutinho has scored 5 goals and provided 5 assists in 11 matches. The Brazilian is one of the best players in Klopp's Liverpool side.

Diego Costa

After a drab season last time, Diego Costa came back with a bang under new manager Antonio Conte. The forward has scored 9 goals and provided 3 assists so far in the tournament. He is the highest goal scorer in the league.

Eden Hazard

Another Chelsea FC star who came back with a bang this season is Eden Hazard. The Belgian star has netted 7 goals this season and provided 1 assist. Antonio Conte's change in the Blues' formation has further brought out the best from Hazard.

Alexis Sanchez

The Chilean international has played as a number 9 striker for Arsenal for the most part of the season. With Olivier Giroud and new recruit Lucas Perez in his squad, Arsene Wenger preferred Alexis Sanchez up front. Sanchez has scored 6 goals and 3 assists in 11 matches.
