Premier League forwards – 2022/23 power rankings

With the Premier League season now over halfway through, a number of players have hit top form and are standing out from the crowd.

Goals are usually the name of the game if you’re playing up front, but there’s other factors to consider when you’re ranking the influence of players on their clubs.

Here’s 90min’s ten most in-form forwards in the 2022/23 Premier League campaign…

Riyad Mahrez

Ordinarily, Aleksandar Mitrovic would have been a shoo-in for the top ten after reaching double digit Premier League goals for Fulham. The problem is he’s missed three penalties along the way, allowing the in-form Riyad Mahrez to muscle his way back into the mix.

Ivan Toney

Miguel Almiron, Callum Wilson

Jack Grealish is usually the one making a fool of other players but he’s being made a fool of by Miguel Almiron this season. The man who the Man City player took the mick out of in May has been on fire recently, getting seven goals and an assist in his last eight games.

You should’ve never doubted him, Jack.

Eddie Nketiah is flourishing at Arsenal

Gabriel Jesus’ knee injury was perceived by many to be disastrous to Arsenal’s title ambitions. Eddie Nketiah didn’t get the memo and is now a likely call-up to Gareth Southgate’s next England squad.

Kauro Mitoma becomes the latest in a long line of names signed by Brighton from seemingly out of nowhere to become an established Premier League player.

Not only that, the Japanese maestro is becoming a regular goalscorer too.

Bukayo Saka has played a huge role in Arsenal’s title challenge this season, and after a decent World Cup, people are waking up and seeing his huge talent.

Marcus Rashford has been the Premier League’s best player since the World Cup break, and the only thing stopping him from breaking into the top two of these rankings are two scoring freaks.

Remember when people were speculating on Manchester City’s ability to accommodate Erling Haaland in their tactical setup? Remember the Darwin Nunez comparisons? Remember the Community Shield? Us neither.
