Top 100 Football Players of the 5 Most Recent Years (2021)

Every year, The Guardian publishes a ranking of the best male football players of the year.
I have taken the 5 latest rankings (2017-21) and made a scoring system where the player's points are their rankings added up.
If a football player isn't on one of the lists they get 101 points for that year.
Clubs are updated as of December 2021.

Great quiz! One small mistake is that you have Mahrez's team listed as Tottenham when it should be Man City

Ranking Müller so low, is honestly a crime.
