We take a look at five of the most impressive players in the Premier League this season under the age of 23.

Saka and Martinelli goals and assists

With the 2022-23 Premier League campaign coming to an end, we take a look at five of the top young performers this season.

Brennan Johnson

Johnson has been a key part of a Nottingham Forest team who are safe for another season.

The 22-year-old has contributed eight goals and three assists in 37 appearances in the top flight under head coach Steve Cooper and flourished in his first season in the Premier League.

Evan Ferguson

The Irishman has had a huge impact under head coach Roberto De Zerbi this season.

Ferguson is only 18 and has played as the focal point in a superb season for Brighton, with other Premier League clubs, including Manchester United, showing their interest in a player with a big future.

The Seagulls striker has six goals and two assists in 17 Premier League matches and recently signed a new deal at the club.

William Saliba

The Frenchman has been excellent for Arsenal and his recent absence through injury culminated in the Gunners losing their way in the title race.

After several loan spells in Ligue 1, Saliba is expected to sign a new deal at the Emirates and become a key defender for Arsenal over the coming years.

Bukayo Saka

You can’t ignore the performances of fellow winger Gabriel Martinelli for Arsenal this season, but Saka has gone to another level.

The England international has matured to become an instrumental part of Mikel Arteta’s young side. Saka, 21, has scored 13 goals and assisted 11 in 37 league games.

Erling Haaland

Well, what can we say about Erling Haaland? The season could not have gone any better for the Norwegian, who has 52 goals in all competitions and has netted 36 times in the Premier League.

City could win a treble this season with their No 9 in the form of his life. Arguably the best player in the world right now, the 22-year-old was voted the men’s FWA Footballer of the Year.
