Arsenal are currently top of the Premier League and have some names in the team of the season so far.

We are now past the halfway mark in the 2022-23 Premier League season so we decided to have a look at the best team of the current Premier League season.

His big-money move from Sheffield United has paid off and Ramsdale has become a vital part of Arsenal picking up 50 points from their opening 19 league games this season.

Trippier’s move from Atlético Madrid to Newcastle was questioned, with many suggesting it was only for the money. After leaving Atlético, he said that Diego Simeone helped him become a better defender and the right-back has been outstanding going forward and in defence.

Brought in from Lille for €37 million in the summer, Newcastle has played 18 times, boosting the club’s backline alongside the more experienced Fabian Schär.

The young Frenchman has played in every one of Arsenal’s league games this season and has even come up with two goals and an assist. Has helped strengthen the back four at the Emirates after returning from loan spells in France.

Without attempting to be influenced by recency bias, Zinchenko was superb in Arsenal’s 3-2 win over Manchester United on Sunday. Playing largely as an inverted left-back, he influenced play centrally and was key to securing the three points when he crossed before Eddie Nketiah tucked away the late winner.

It’s scary that he is still only 21. Roy Keane says he can go to the top and even play for Real Madrid. He has played in every league game for the Gunners this season and has chipped in with seven goals.

Instrumental in United’s change in direction. The Brazil international has brought balance, experience and quality to the club’s midfield. A born winner, he allows Bruno Fernandes and Marcus Rashford to do their thing.

In charge of Arsenal’s incredible first half of the season, captain Ødegaard oozes class and makes Arsenal tick with his magical left foot. One of the leaders under Mikel Arteta, the Norwegian has been a significant part of Arsenal’s title charge.

Newcastle have surprised many this season, as has Almirón. The tricky Paraguayan winger has an impressive nine Premier League goals and one assist in 20 league games this season. Eddie Howe has worked wonders with a player who netted just once in 30 league games last season.

Rashford looks like a new player under Erik ten Hag and has rediscovered his spark. The United forward suddenly has the confidence that was clearly missing before and has notched nine league goals since the start of the season. He has become one of the first names’s on the team sheet for Ten Hag and has been linked with a move to PSG.

Haaland is the heavy favourite to win Premier League Player of the Season and very few could argue against that decision. In his first season in England’s top flight, he has already netted 25 times and it’s only January.
