James Tomkins has been ranked as 11th best Premier League player and the top defender this season, according to Who Scored stats.
In a focus on English players vying for an international call-up, WhoScored.com reported the following:
James Tomkins, who recently signed a new 5-and-a-half year deal with West Ham, has impressed for the Hammers this term. Tomkins is currently the highest rated centre-back and Englishman (7.53) in England’s top tier. West Ham’s impressive start to the campaign has been, in part, due to their resilient defence, with the 25-year-old central to that. The defender has now firmly established himself as a first choice defender for the east London side.
Tomkins' rating ranks him above the likes of Man United defenders Jones and Rojo, and certainly suggests that Roy Hodgson should give the 25-year-old a chance when he names his next squad.
