Best in Premier League

Published on:

The Premier League is back after the World Cup, as all teams restarted their campaign on Boxing Day. After years of dominance by Manchester City and Liverpool, this time, the top two feature Mikel Arteta’s Arsenal and the newest powerhouses, Newcastle United. And at the same time, Liverpool and Chelsea are languishing at sixth and eighth, respectively.

Several new stars have also emerged who have shown they have the skill to cut it out at the best league in the world. The teams also spent an obscene amount of money to acquire new players. None of them have been as successful as Erling Haaland, though, who has been scoring goals for fun. There are others also like Miguel Almiron, who has been Newcastle United’s best attacker despite being at the club before the Saudi takeover,

So, here are the stats for the 2022-23 Premier League season. 

Top Goal Scorers in 2022-23 Premier League season 

Erling Haaland: What an impressive investment Erling Haaland has been for Manchester City. The Norwegian had huge shoes to fill as City had failed to find a prolific striker who could be Sergio Kun Aguero’s successor. However, Haaland has taken to the City team like a duck to water scoring 35 goals, the most in the Premier League. This includes his four hat-tricks, three of which he scored in three consecutive matches. In addition, Haaland also became the third player after Lionel Messi and Adriano to score five goals in a single UEFA Champions League match. Haaland has also become the player with the highest number of goals in a single Premier League season.

Harry Kane: One of the best strikers in the world, Harry Kane, has continued his form this season. The forward has scored 26 goals, which is why Tottenham is in the top-four race. And while he may not be in the best of minds after finishing a crucial penalty in the 2022 FIFA World Cup. And with Antonio Conte gone, he will need to be at his best if Tottenham want to get something out of the season. With his latest striker this season, he also went past Wayne Rooney’s record of 208 goals becoming the second-highest goal scorer in Premier League history, only behind Alan Shearer, who is on 260 goals.

Ivan Toney: The Brentford man is in the form of his life, scoring 20 goals in the current Premier League season. His latest came in the 2-1 home defeat to Newcastle United. And while he may not have gone to the 2022 FIFA World Cup, his goal-scoring exploits prompted Gareth Southgate to call up the striker for the UEFA Euro qualifiers.

Mohamed Salah: One of the reasons why Liverpool still have an outside chance of qualifying for the Champions League places is the crucial goals that their superstar Mohamed Salah has scored for them this season. The Egyptian has been their key player ever since joining them back in 2017 and has kept up his performance going, with 19 goals to his name.

Marcus Rashford: Since the end of the World Cup, Marcus Rashford has been the deadliest forward in the Premier League and across Europe. The English forward has scored 11 goals since the league restarted and is currently on 16 goals. His brutal goal-scoring form is one of the key reasons Manchester United are currently fourth in the league.

Top Assists in Premier League 2022-23 season 

Kevin de Bruyne: New season, new players, but same old Kevin de Bruyne. The Belgian is among the best midfielders in the world and has shown his class this season by providing 16 assists. In addition, he has been the perfect partner to Erling Haaland, which has left the opposition in complete disarray.

Bukayo Saka: Arsenal have only one player who is among the top 10 goal scorers and the top ten assist providers, which explains why they are top of the Premier League table. That man is Bukayo Saka, who has been the creator-in-chief for Arsenal, using his speed, trickery, and impeccable passing to leave the opposition bamboozled with his 11 assists.

Leandro Trossard: Trossard might have changed his club mid-season, but that does not seem to have affected his creative tally. The Belgian has been impressive for Brighton before switching to the Etihad. Trossard has provided ten assists so far this season.

Riyad Mahrez: Because of Erling Haaldn’s brutal form, it is tough to notice that other players in Manchester City are also having an incredible season. Riyad Mahrez is one of those players who has provided five assists in the season and has changed his playing style from that of a goal-scorer to goal creator

Michael Olise: Crystals Palace are currently experiencing a proper mid-table club season, as they are neither near the top nor the bottom. However, Micheal Olise is having a season to remember providing nine assists for the Eagles.


Most Assists 

Player Assists  Club
Kevin de Bruyne  16 Manchester City 
Bukayo Saka 11 Arsenal
Leandro Trossard 10 Arsenal
Riyad Mahrez 9 Manchester City
Michael Olise 7 Crystal Palace

Top Clean Sheets in 2022-23 Premier League season 

David de Gea: Manchester United’s incredible resurgence has been made possible by several players, and goalkeeper David de Gea is one of them. The shot-stopper has kept 15 clean sheets, the most in the league and combined with a solid defensive partnership of Lisandro Martinez and Raphaël Varane.

Nick Pope: While he did not start for England in the 2022 World Cup, Nick Pope is undoubtedly the most in-form goalkeeper in the entire Premier League this season. With 13 clean sheets to his name, Pope has helped Newcastle win crucial points and climb all the way to third place in the Premier League.

Aaron Ramsdale: Like Nick Pope, Aaron Ramsdale is also aiming to be England’s number-one goalkeeper. Ramsdale has kept 13 clean sheets so far and helped Arsenal to put up a formidable challenge to Manchester City for the Premier League title this season.

Alisson Becker: While Liverpool have been far from their best in terms of defence, Alisson Becker has still shown glimpses of brilliance. The Brazilian shot-stopper has kept 13 clean sheets this season which has helped Liverpool rediscover their mojo to some extent.

Jose Sa: Wolverhampton Wanderers are having an underwhelming season so far, and only Jose Sa could escape blame for these poor performances. The Portuguese shot-stopper has kept nine clean sheets helping his team avoid the relegation zone.

Most Clean Sheets

Player  Clean Sheets  Club 
David de Gea 15 Manchester United 
Nick Pope 13 Newcastle United
Aaron Ramsdale 13 Arsenal
Alisson 13 Liverpool
Jose Sa 10 Wolverhampton Wanderers

The 2022-23 Premier League season started from August 6, 2022 and will end on May 28, 2023.
