The main players in the Premier League at the end of the season

All the best of the outgoing season: from scorers to iron men and youngsters.

City are champions, Liverpool are second, and Arsenal have missed out on the Champions League. Summing up the Premier League season – who was the best according to various statistical indicators?

Top scorers: Mohammed Salah (Liverpool) and Son Heung-min (Tottenham) – 23 goals

Two of the brightest attacking players in the championship. Salah was especially cool in the first part of the season, and especially in the period from 3 to 9 rounds, when he scored 9 goals. Including the Manchester United hat-trick. The dream broke just in the second half. Among other things, there were three doubles and also a hat-trick (Aston Villa).

Cristiano Ronaldo is second with 18 goals and Harry Kane is third with 17. Two top scorers lost the lead, in general, not to full-fledged forwards.

The best in the system “goal + pass”: Mohammed Salah (Liverpool) – 37 points (23 + 14)

In general, Salah has another powerful season. And Mo is still underappreciated. Yes, in Liverpool the system is already built in such a way that conditional Diaz can immediately fit into it, and everything will work. But Salah is the very factor when one person can turn everything around.

In second place is the same Son (32 points – 23 + 9), the third – Kane (26 points – 17 + 9). In the company of leaders was Jarrod Bowen. The West Ham attacking midfielder had an outstanding season, making 12+12.

Goalscorers: Cristiano Ronaldo (Man. United) and Mo Salah (Liverpool) – 7 game-winners each

The influence of both is clear. However, things are getting worse with Manchester United: Cristiano Ronaldo’s goals at some point turned into an addiction. The team was not able to create something, and it was the Portuguese who had to drag it.

Ronaldo and Salah are followed by Zaha (Crystal Palace), Vardy (Leicester), Son (TH) and Jota (Liverpool) with 6 winning goals each.


Salah, De Bruyne or Fernandes?  Who in the Premier League escalated the game most of the season
Salah, De Bruyne or Fernandes? Who in the Premier League escalated the game most of the season

Most Important Scorer: Teemu Pukki (Norwich City) – Scored 47.8% of the team’s goals

Norwich scored only 23 goals, the attacking troubles are personified by a simple fact: the team’s top scorer Teemu Pukki chalked up 11 goals. Behind him is Josh Sargent with 2 goals. Alone, Pukki could not save the club from relegation.

Supersub: Marcus Rashford (Man. United) – 4 goals as a substitute

All in all, Marcus Rashford has had a terrible season that has been a mix of injuries, poor form both on his own and in the team, and a loss of confidence. It is unlikely that Rashford is happy about this, but he is the best spare of the season. True, these 4 goals are the only ones he scored.

Jokers with 3 goals were Divock Origi (Liverpool), Riyad Mahrez (Manchester City), Emile Smith-Rowe (Arsenal), Joan Wyssa (Brentford) and Steven Bergwijn (Tottenham).

Best Goalkeeper: Alisson Becker (Liverpool) – 20 clean sheets (55.6%)

It is unlikely that anyone will be surprised by this result. Like the fact that Ederson is in second place, although he has the same 20 crackers (54.1%). The reason is simple: Alisson spent one match less.

Hugo Lloris (Tottenham) closes the top three with 16 clean sheets (42.1%).

Iron Men: David De Gea (Man. United) and Hugo Lloris (Tottenham) – played all 38 matches

These guys are clear. Although De Gea may not have been averse to resting in a few matches, neither Solskjaer, nor Carrick, nor Rangnick gave him such an opportunity. Lloris also played all matches without substitutions.

Leeds goalkeeper Illan Mellier was close to this result, but in the game against Wolverhampton he was replaced due to injury. So for 35 minutes in the season he still “rested”.

There are traditionally many goalkeepers among regular players: Ederson (MC), Sanchez (Brighton), Schmeichel (Leicester) and Fabianski (West Ham) played 37 matches each. So let’s note the field.

Aston Villa’s Matty Cash and Wolves’ Conor Coady appeared in all 38 games of the season. And several times they went to replace: the first rested for a total of 40 minutes per season, the second – 57.



“This is ridiculous!” Ronaldo missed the Premier League Player of the Season award

Youngest player: Kayde Gordon (Liverpool) – entered the field at 17 years 3 months and 11 days

Another young talent from Liverpool appeared for 8 minutes in the game with Brantford, and became the youngest player of the season. He didn’t play in the first team anymore, but what years he was!

There were a lot of 17-year-old youths in general:

  • Evan Ferguson (Brighton) – played against Burnley at 17 years old, 4 months exactly
  • Alejandro Garnacho (Man. United) – came out against Chelsea at 17 years, 9 months and 28 days
  • Karni Chukwuemeka (Aston Villa) – played with Brentford at 17 years, 10 months and 8 days
  • Dane Scarlett (Tottenham) – left Leeds at 17 years, 11 months and 2 days
  • Sonny Perkins (West Ham) also played against Leeds at 17 years, 11 months and 6 days
