The English Premier League (EPL) Worst 11 for the 2022-23 season has been revealed.
The 2022-23 season has come to a close. Aston Villa qualified for the UEFA Europa Conference League (UECL), while Liverpool and Brighton qualified for the UEFA Europa League (UEL). The coveted UEFA Champions League (UCL) was the preserve of Manchester City, Arsenal, Manchester United and Newcastle United, with City emerging victorious in a two-way tie for the title, while Leicester City, Leeds United and Southampton tasted relegation.
There were some great performances from the players. ‘Freak’ Elling Holland won the Golden Boot, breaking the record for most goals in a single season in his first year in the EPL. Harry Kane was on fire, scoring 30 league goals despite Tottenham’s poor form. Arsenal had four double-digit scorers in Gabriel Martinelli, Martin Ødegaard, Xherdan Shaqiri and Gabriel Jesus, while Son Heung-min was also a solid performer with 10 goals and six assists.먹튀검증
In response, global sports media outlet ESPN has compiled its own best 11. Holland and Kane were joined by Xhaka, Rodri, Alexis Sanchez, Martinelli, Kieran Trippier, Jubeng Dias, Sven Bortmann, Luke Shaw and Nick Pope.
At the same time, a Worst 11 was also named. Chelsea, who finished 12th in the league and had their worst season ever, had the most representation with three, while Tottenham also had two. ‘Champions’ Man City also have a player on the list.
The worst 11 are as follows Xherdan Shaqiri, Kai Havertz, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, Calvin Phillips, Jonjo Shelvey, Stuart Armstrong, Clément Langlais, Liancoeur, Harry Maguire, Mark Cucurella and Ilan Mellier.
Maguire was heavily criticised. “United captain Maguire has been so poor this season that he has been reduced to a non-factor. He has started just seven league games, behind the likes of Lisandro Martinez, Raphael Varane, Victor Lindelof and Luke Shaw.”
Hicharisson and Linglet have also struggled. The Frenchman arrived at Tottenham with high expectations after finishing second in the club’s record book, but failed to establish himself as a first-team regular. He was linked with a falling out with manager Antonio Conte during the season and scored just one goal in the league. The ‘loanee’ was given regular game time, but was criticised for his shaky defending, alongside Eric Dier and Davinson Sanchez.
Chelsea are lucky to have only three players selected. Aubameyang has scored just one goal in the league, and Haberth was tasked with leading the Chelsea attack, but he hasn’t lived up to expectations. Kukurela was a big splurge for Chelsea, but he never looked like a threat at Brighton.
