Premier League Team of the Season so Far

The Premier League season is 10 games old, and it’s been an exciting one so far.

Arsenal have won nine of their first ten games, setting the early pace. While Nottingham Forest and Leicester City are having trouble scoring points, Liverpool, meanwhile, have been disappointing.

Of course, we’ve also witnessed a number of extraordinary performances. Here is my Seasonal Team based on the first ten games.

GK – Jose Sa (Wolverhampton Wanderers)

Wolverhampton Wanderers have had a challenging season thus far, as they currently sit one point above the relegation zone. Without their goalkeeper, they would most likely be among the bottom three.

With four clean sheets in ten games at Molineux, Jose Sa has been an important player. In the home games against Fulham and Nottingham Forest, he made pivotal penalty saves that gave his team a three-point advantage.

RB – Kieran Trippier (Newcastle United)

Reece James, Kyle Walker, and Trent Alexander-Arnold are all questionable, and Trent Alexander-Arnold is terribly out of shape, therefore Kieran Trippier appears to be England’s top right-back pick for the World Cup. He will be a really good choice if he stays how he is now.

The former Atletico Madrid player has been a part of the league’s top defense, which has kept four shutouts and allowed just nine goals. He makes significant attacking contributions as well, scoring one goal and dishing out one assist this year.

CB – William Saliba (Arsenal)

After spending three years on loan in his home France, William Saliba’s Arsenal fans had to wait for his debut. But now that he’s in the starting lineup, he’s consistently putting on world-class performances.

In a strong Arsenal backline, the young Frenchman has stood out. He has assisted in four clean sheets and scored two goals.

CB – Conor Coady (Everton)

Everton is one of the league’s teams with the fewest goals scored as of this writing and is two points above the relegation zone. They have been particularly strong on defense, conceding the fewest goals outside the top six and never more than two in a game.

Conor Coady, a Wolves loanee, has recovered at Goodison Park and is thriving alongside James Tarkowski.

LB – Joao Cancelo (Manchester City)

Joao Cancelo has been a left-back for more than a year and has nearly mastered the position. The Portuguese player has appeared in every league game, recording two goals, one assist, and five clean sheets.

CM – Granit Xhaka (Arsenal)

Granit Xhaka has been a contentious figure at the Emirates Stadium ever since his arrival in 2016. After six years, the Swiss midfielder is now delivering some of his best work.

He has delivered everything a central midfielder could possibly offer. He has been aggressive, skilled with the ball, and has begun to add goals and assists to his repertoire. In ten appearances, he has two goals and three assists.

CM – Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg (Tottenham Hotspur)

Yves Bissouma’s summer arrival threatened Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg’s spot in the starting lineup. The Dane handled the pressure perfectly, earning a spot in Antonio Conte’s starting lineup with a number of standout performances.

His side needs his energy and calmness in the middle of the park, and he has started to help out more on offense. He has three goals, placing him as Tottenham Hotspur’s second-leading league scorer.

CM – Kevin De Bruyne (Manchester City)

Since his expensive transfer from Wolfsburg to Manchester City in 2015, Kevin De Bruyne has probably been the greatest player in the Premier League. And as of right now, he doesn’t appear to be slowing down.

He has nine assists in ten games, which is the most in the league; no other player has more than four. If he can maintain this, he might surpass Thierry Henry and himself, who currently hold the league record of 20 goals.

RW – Bukayo Saka (Arsenal)

It’s simple to overlook the fact that Bukayo Saka is only 21 years old after spending more than three years as a fixture in the Arsenal first team. He seems to advance to a new level with each passing year.

The Gunners’ stunning start to the season has seen several exceptional performances, including the England international. With four assists, he is their top creator, and only Gabriel Jesus has more goals than him.

ST – Erling Haaland (Manchester City)

Really, there’s no need for an explanation, but I’ll still do it. If there were any lingering concerns about Erling Haaland’s performance in the Premier League, they have been swiftly dispelled. With 15 (yes, FIFTY) goals in his first ten games, including three hat-tricks, he has jumped out in front of the pack in the race for the Golden Boot.

To surpass Mohamed Salah’s 38-game record, he needs 18 more goals in 28 more games. Can he accomplish it? Of course he can, in the state he is in now.

LW – Phil Foden (Manchester City)

Everyone has always been able to perceive Phil Foden’s talent. To support the buzz around him, he has started to add numbers to his game this year.

With six goals, the 22-year-old is tied for sixth place in the English top division. Additionally, just three other players have more assists than he does, with three.
