The best player of every Premier League team 2022/23

Published on 25 May 2023 at 20:00

Arsenal - Martin Odegaard

With the plethora of attacking talent Arsenal have shown this season, it seems unfair to single out one individual. However, I've decided to give it to Odegaard. The once hailed 'wonderkid' has started living up to his potential this season and as the new Gunners' captain, looks well above his years in terms of leadership and mentality.


Aston Villa - Ollie Watkins

After a shaky start to the season for The Villans, Unai Emery's arrival has seen a vast improvement in performance for a number of players. None more so than Watkins, who became a different animal when the Spaniard arrived. His 14 goals and 8 assists have helped take Villa from a relegation battle, to a potential European spot.


Bournemouth - Dominic Solanke

After being heavily tipped for relegation this season, the Cherries proved their doubters wrong by comfortably staying in the Division. Solanke, who himself has had his doubters over the years, has been an integral part of this and has shown he has what it takes to make it in the top flight.


Brentford - Ivan Toney

Despite sparking controversy in the latter stages of the season, some of the performances Toney has put in for Brentford this season have been nothing short of world class. With 20 goals this season as well as being one of the most reliable penalty takers in world football, it's a shame that this season he won't be remembered for his actions on the pitch.


Brighton and Hove Albion - Moises Caicedo

As a team, Roberto De Zerbi's Brighton this season have been superb, making this one of the hardest choices on the list. I have however, plumped for Mr Consistent, Caicedo. The Ecuadorian's versatility and work rate epitomise everything that's likeable about the Seagulls this season.


Chelsea - Thiago Silva

With 3 different managers and multiple transfer flops, it would be fair to say that Chelsea have been the biggest under performers of the season. However one player they can always rely on is Thiago Silva. The Brazilian is the embodiment of the phrase 'age is just a number' and one would dread to think where The Blues would be without him.


Crystal Palace - Eberiche Eze

After a shaky spell midway through the season, it once looked as if Palace could be getting dragged into a relegation battle. However, since the appointment of a new manager in March, the Eagles have just went from strength to strength. One player who has particularly flourished is Eze, who has popped up with a number of important goals since Roy Hodgson's arrival.


Everton - James Tarkowski

Whilst there are cases to be made for Dwight McNeil or Jordan Pickford, I've went with Tarkowski for Everton. The experienced, no-nonsense centre back has very rarely put a foot wrong this season. Furthermore, his winning goal against Arsenal in February signified a change in fortunes for the Toffees and might just be the goal that keeps them in the Division.


Fulham - Joao Palhinha

Marco Silva's Fulham side have been a joy to watch in their return to the Premier League this season. Whilst striker, Aleksandar Mitrovic grabs most of the headlines, I've chosen Joao Palhinha for Fulham's player of the season. The criminally underrated defensive midfielder has won more duels and made more tackles than any other player in the league.



Leeds United - Rodrigo

The majority of this season has been a painful watch for Leeds fans, as the Yorkshire side look destined for relegation. Whilst there has been no outstanding performer for the Whites, had it not been for Rodrigo's goals at the start of the season, they could've been Championship bound a lot earlier.


Leicester City - Harvey Barnes

Speaking of destined for the drop, Leicester City fans have been brought back down to Earth this season after having an incredibly successful nine years in the League. Despite this, Barnes' form has been consistent as ever and the winger would be far too good to play in the Championship if the Foxes got relegated.


Liverpool - Alisson Becker

Agile. Commanding. Reliable. Alisson has once again saved Liverpool's bacon countless times this season. With the amount of sloppy defensive performances Liverpool have underwent this season, it is a nigh on miracle that the Brazilian has managed 14 clean sheets.


Manchester City - Erling Haaland

With 36 goals (and counting) this season, Haaland has smashed the record of most goals in a single Premier League campaign and has been the focal point of a relentless Manchester City. He has also recorded 9 assists this season (same as Fernandes and Trippier), showing the Norwegian isn't just a one-trick pony.


Manchester United - Marcus Rashford

Over the past few years, many have doubted whether Marcus Rashford could live up to the expectations that were put onto him as a teenager. However after this season no one can deny the quality the young winger possesses. His 16 goals and 7 assists this season have been instrumental in United's European challenge.


Newcastle United - Kieran Trippier

In Newcastle's best season in two decades, there are plenty of players to choose from here but I don't think anyone can argue with Trippier. The skipper's creativity going forward, mixed with his desire and passion have made him a real fan-favourite on Tyneside.


Nottingham Forest - Morgan Gibbs-White

After coming up last year through the play-offs, Nottingham Forest were another team heavily tipped to get relegated this season. However, after a shaky start, they have now assured Premier League football next season. Forest had positive results against the likes of Arsenal, Man City and Liverpool and the creativity of Gibbs-White was instrumental in all these games.


Southampton - James Ward-Prowse

In what has been a disastrous season from start to finish for The Saints, it's hard to pick out any positives. Their captain and tailsman, James Ward-Prowse has been the best of a bad bunch.


Tottenham - Harry Kane

From beating Man City at home to being 5-0 down to Newcastle after 20 minutes, it would be fair to say that Spurs' season has been something of a rollercoaster. However during all this chaos, they can always rely on their captain to score goals, making Harry Kane the easiest choice on this list.


West Ham United - Lucas Paqueta

It has also been a season of mixed emotions for West Ham, where domestic failures have been overshadowed by European success. During these ups and downs, the silky skills of Paqueta have made the Premier League season a bit more bearable for Hammers fans. The Brazilian International has brought a much-needed touch of class to the London Stadium.


Wolves - Max Kilman

After a terrible start to the season, Wolves' fortunes changed after the appointment of manager, Julen Lopetegui. Whilst no individual has stood out, Kilman has started every game this season at the heart of the defence. Furthermore, the 25 year old has a background in futsal and always seems to look comfortable on the ball when playing out from the back.
