We’re almost two months into the Premier League season, and already certain players are beginning to stand out from the crowd.
We are now taking a look at who we think have been the ten best forwards in the 2022/23 Premier League campaign so far…
10. Dejan Kulusevski
The 22-year-old Swede just keeps getting better this season, laying on sumptuous crosses for his teammates and offering a constant threat with his wand of a left foot.
9. Marcus Rashford
Fortunately, the arrival of Erik ten Hag at Old Trafford seems to have breathed new life into the pacey forward, who has already come close to matching last season’s tally with little sign of slowing down.
8. Wilfried Zaha
Despite a rocky start for the South Londoners, their 29-year-old captain still has the ability to win matches for them single-handedly and has four goals in five appearances so far this campaign.
A towering header in the 3-0 win over Chelsea exemplified the Spaniard’s ability to lead the line for Jesse Marsch’s side, made all the more crucial by the continued absence of Patrick Bamford.
6. Leandro Trossard
The Belgian’s versatility and tireless efforts down the left flank have made him one of the most exciting players to watch so far.
5. Ivan Toney
The 26-year-old demonstrated all his attacking qualities with a hat-trick in the Bees’ 5-2 victory over Leeds and earned himself a place in the England squad for the first time. Will he be on the plane to Qatar?
4. Harry Kane
You dread to think what he’ll be like when he’s playing well.
3. Gabriel Jesus
With four goals and three assists already this season, the Brazilian has transformed Arsenal’s attack, tearing teams apart with his movement and dribbling ability.
2. Alexsandar Mitrovic
After a couple of failed attempts in the Premier League, the Serbian giant has returned to the top flight on a mission to establish himself at the top level. Six goals in seven games suggests he’s on the road to doing just that, as Marco Silva’s side continue to punch above their weight.
1. Erling Haaland
Haaland has made a mockery of the Premier League so far, making scoring goals look so easy you almost want to make fun of Alan Shearer for only managing 260. If he stays at the Etihad for the long term, there’s no telling just how far the Norwegian can go.
