Fulham centre-back Tosin Adarabioyo is in the midst of some of his best form and arguably one of the main factors behind the team's recent improvement.

His performances in the surprise wins over Manchester United and Brighton were hugely influential, and he is continuing what should be seen as a strong turnaround in his status at Craven Cottage, having appeared to be leaving for Monaco last summer.

Tosin was an England youth international at U16, U17, U18 and U19 levels and once one of Manchester City's brightest prospects, talked up by Pep Guardiola. At Fulham, he has been integral to two promotion seasons and their survival in the Premier League so far under Marco Silva.

Yet the 26-year-old has never had a senior call-up for England and is not normally in the conversation for Gareth Southgate's squads.

As we approach the European Championships this summer, there is a debate to be had over who should be selected among the England centre-backs, given John Stones is arguably the only shoo-in.

Perhaps Tosin should, given he is currently outperforming all of the above across several important statistical metrics in the Premier League - even Man City's Stones in some aspects.

Tosin has won more defensive duels (67.37%), interceptions per 90 minutes (1.5) and clearances per 90 minutes (4.99) than all of them, and he also has more headed clearances per 90 minutes (3.33) than any other centre-back in the Premier League to have played more than four games.

There is no doubt Tosin should be in the next group of players to be considered for a call-up if he continues in this vein and, at 26, he still has plenty of time to represent his country.
