Here are the 10 worst statistically according to WhoScored.

10. Adnan Januzaj, Manchester United – 6.28 rating

Adnan Januzaj Manchester United

Came onto the scene with a match-winning brace against Sunderland last season, but that is about as good as it’s got for Januzaj since then and he can’t seem to establish himself under Louis van Gaal.

9. Kevin Nolan, West Ham United – 6.25

Kevin Nolan West Ham United

Has always been a favourite of Sam Allardyce’s, but in a new look Hammers team under the Englishman there is little room for the old school style of Nolan.

8. Emmanuel Riviere, Newcastle United – 6.24

Emmanuel Riviere Newcastle United

Signed from AS Monaco over the summer with the hope he would be the answer upfront for the Magpies, but one assist and no goals to date proves otherwise.

7. Charles N’Zogbia, Aston Villa – 6.23

Charles N'Zogbia Aston Villa

Many thought Paul Lambert was mad to leave this Frenchman out of his squad last term, but judging by N’Zogbia’s displays this time around the Scot was probably right all along.

6. Didier Drogba, Chelsea – 6.20

Didier Drogba Chelsea

Blues fans would probably smart at the inclusion of their club legend, but in all honesty at 36-years-old Drogba is well past his best despite a goal against Man United this campaign.

4=. Matthew Phillips, QPR – 6.16

Matt Phillips QPR

A real stalwart in the Hoops side when they were in the Championship, but doesn’t seem to be able to cope since coming up to the top tier.

4=. Rickie Lambert, Liverpool

Whilst at Southampton the 32-year-old was considered among the best forwards in the country, but since a transfer to his boyhood club the England international has struggled.

3. Gaston Ramirez, Hull City – 6.11

Gaston Ramirez Hull

Was once the Saints’ club record signing and now can’t get a game at an underachieving Hull side who sit on the cusp of the relegation zone.

2. Marvin Sordell, Burnley – 6.04

The Clarets are admirable in the fact they have a good, young manager and refuse to spend beyond their means, but it also means they have to rely on players like Sordell and will therefore probably go down.

1. Darren Bent, Aston Villa – 6.02

Darren Bent Aston Villa

Yet the statistically worst player this season is a striker who’s had an astonishing £53.5m spent on transfer fees for him over the years and yet is now on-loan at Brighton & Hove Albion.
