The Premier League (EPL) Team of the Year for the 2022-23 season has been announced.
EA Sports FIFA announced the 2022-23 EPL Team of the Season-TOTS on its official website on the 6th (Korean time).
The three strikers were Mohamed Salah (Liverpool), Erling Haaland (Manchester City) and Marcus Rashford (Manchester United). Everyone expected the selection of Holland, who is rewriting EPL scoring history, and Rashford, who began to be recognized as Manchester United’s clear ace this season.
However, the selection of Salah, not Bukayo Saka (Arsenal), was unexpected. It is true that Salah, who recorded 18 goals and 7 assists, deserves to be selected for the EPL Team of the Year, but there were more opinions that Saka, who led Arsenal’s championship competition with 13 goals and 11 assists, should be on the Team of the Year.
Controversy also exists in the midfield, where Kevin De Bruyne (Man City), Martin Odegaard (Arsenal), and Casemiro (Man United) were selected. The selection of The Bruiner and Odegaard was the order football fans expected. De Bruyne had some ups and downs during the season, but he still proved why he is one of the best players in the Premier League. Odegaard led Arsenal’s attack as captain, announcing the resurgence of genius.
The controversial player is Casemiro. Everyone knows how important Casemiro has been in Manchester United’s midfield this season. However, Casemiro was sent off twice in the middle of the season and was absent for a long time. No one could have imagined that Rodri, who was as important as Haaland and De Bruyne, would be defeated by Casemiro.스포츠토토
Fortunately, the defense did not have any controversial selections. Oleksandr Zinchenko, William Saliba (both Arsenal), Ruben Dias (Man City) and Kieran Trippier (Newcastle) were named EPL Team of the Year. Zinchenko and Saliba have played key roles in Arsenal’s defense this season. Depending on whether the two players played, Arsenal’s performance changed.
Dias was the key behind Manchester City, and Trippier led Newcastle’s rise. Thanks to this, Newcastle is highly likely to challenge the European Football Federation (UEFA) Champions League (UCL) next season.
Aaron Ramsdale (Arsenal), who competed fiercely with Alisson Becker (Liverpool), was named as the goalkeeper. Ramsdale overcame criticism for being a relegation goalkeeper with his skills and was selected for the EPL Team of the Year.
