There is a two-way tie for the third position. Chelsea's Eden Hazard and Manchester City's Leroy Sane have completed four nutmegs.
Manchester United's Ashley Young, Ayoze Perez (Newcastle), Danny Rose (Tottenham), Josh Murphy (Cardiff City), Nathan Redmond (Southampton), Roberto Firmino (Liverpool), and Wilfried Zaha (Crystal Palace) all have three nutmegs each to place fifth on the table.
