The monthly Kings of the Premier League show returns on Sky Sports this Friday with another all-star line-up on the panel.
Sky Sports presenter Adam Smith and two guests build an ultimate XI from the top-performing players over the past month, armed with stats-based rankings and votes from the fans.
This month, Smithy is joined by former England forward and sporting director for women’s football at Aston Villa Eni Aluko and influencer, presenter and Manchester United fan Harry Pinero.
The pair will be pitting stats against gut, comparing results from the statistical Power Rankings with fans’ votes for Kings of the Match on the Premier League website.
