The Top 20 Stars of the 22/23 Premier League Season: Haaland & Kane Shine

The Premier League season 22/23 witnessed several outstanding performers who left their mark on the pitch.

Erling Haaland, the star player of Manchester City, set a new record by scoring the highest number of goals ever recorded in a single Premier League Season campaign. Meanwhile, Martin Odegaard, the captain of Arsenal, nearly led his team to the league title with his inspiring performances.

Although some players occasionally shone as the Player of the Match, only a select few were able to maintain a consistently high level throughout the entire season.

WhoScored, renowned for its player ratings, evaluated every participant’s performance on a scale of 1 to 10 for each match. In this analysis, we’ll delve into the 20 players with the highest average ratings.

While some inclusions on the list won’t come as a surprise, there are a few notable omissions that might leave fans questioning the rankings.

Here are the top 20 players from the 2022/23 Premier League season based on their average ratings:

20.Ilkay Gundogan – Manchester City (7.11)
19. Phil Foden – Manchester City (7.13)
18. Mohamed Salah – Liverpool (7.16)
17. Casemiro – Manchester United (7.17)
16. Bruno Guimaraes – Newcastle (7.21)
15. James Maddison – Leicester (7.24)
14. Joelinton – Newcastle (7.24)
13. Ivan Toney – Brentford (7.25)
12.Gabriel Martinelli – Arsenal (7.25)
11. Rodri – Manchester City (7.26)

It’s no surprise to find three Manchester City players among the top 20. Pep Guardiola’s side proved their mettle and nearly every member of the squad performed exceptionally throughout the season.

Despite early-season criticism, Mohamed Salah of Liverpool managed to finish with an impressive tally of 19 goals and 12 assists.

James Maddison stands out as the sole representative from a club outside the top 10. The talented Englishman delivered a fantastic season for Leicester, although he couldn’t save them from relegation.

Now, let’s reveal the top 10:

10.Martin Odegaard – Arsenal (7.29)

The skipper of Arsenal emerged as their leading goalscorer while also serving as the team’s influential playmaker.

09. Jack Grealish – Manchester City (7.33)

Initially subjected to criticism upon joining Manchester City, Grealish eventually found his rhythm and made the left-wing position his own.

08. Solly March – Brighton (7.38)

March experienced the most remarkable improvement in the Premier League Season, as evidenced by his average rating.

07.Bukayo Saka – Arsenal (7.40)

While Odegaard claimed the top goalscorer title, it was Saka who achieved a higher average rating.

06. Kieran Trippier – Newcastle (7.41)

The Newcastle defender had an outstanding season and played a pivotal role in securing Champions League qualification for his team.

05. Gabriel Jesus – Arsenal (7.42)

Although the Brazilian striker encountered some goal-scoring struggles in the latter part of the campaign, his performances at the beginning were extremely impressive.

04. Bruno Fernandes – Manchester United (7.44)

Fernandes’ statistics fail to fully reflect his influence on Manchester United’s squad. The Portuguese star consistently led the team from the front throughout the season.

03. Harry Kane – Tottenham (7.51)

Scoring 30 goals and not clinching the top goalscorer title is a remarkable feat. Kane demonstrated his consistent brilliance yet again for Tottenham.

02.Erling Haaland – Manchester City (7.54)

Erling Haaland’s inaugural season will be etched in football history, and what’s truly astonishing is that he possesses the potential for further improvement.
Can anyone impede his dominance in the upcoming season? Only time will reveal the answer.

01.Kevin De Bruyne – Manchester City (7.58)

One might assume that Haaland would claim the top spot, but the truth remains that a significant portion of the Norwegian’s goal tally owes gratitude to Kevin De Bruyne.
The Belgian maestro facilitated an astounding 16 assists in the league, and virtually all of his seven goals were absolute stunners.
