While some players shine on the field, others have struggled to keep up with the expectations of the league.

The English Premier League is one of the most prestigious football leagues in the world, where the best clubs and players compete for glory. While some players shine on the field and make headlines for their outstanding performances, others struggle to keep up with the pace and expectations of the league. While some clubs have exceeded expectations, others have underperformed, and it's often the underperforming players who come under scrutiny. Fans and pundits alike are quick to criticize players who fail to deliver, and in this article, we'll take a closer look at the top underperformers for each club in the English Premier League.

From established stars to promising youngsters, every club has players who have failed to make an impact this season. Whether it's due to injuries, loss of form, or simply struggling to adapt to a new team, there are plenty of reasons why players can struggle in the Premier League. Some may have failed to live up to their price tags, while others may have been expected to take on a bigger role in their team's success. In this article, we will discuss the top underperformers for each club in the English Premier League 2022-23 season.

Arsenal - Fabio Vieira

The young midfielder arrived at Arsenal from Porto in the summer with a lot of promise, but he has struggled to make an impact in the Premier League so far. He has played in 23 games, mostly coming off the bench, and has registered a total of 2 goals and 2 assists all season. Despite being highly rated by his former club, Vieira is yet to show his quality in the English top-flight.

Aston Villa - Philippe Coutinho

The Brazilian playmaker arrived at Aston Villa on loan from Barcelona in the summer, with high expectations of what he could bring to the team. Coutinho has also struggled with adapting to the tactical demands of the Premier League and has been hampered by injuries, which has resulted in Aston Villa's struggles in the league. However, he has struggled to adapt to the pace and physicality of the Premier League, and his lack of defensive effort has been criticized. He has only scored one goal and provided one assist in 20 league appearances.

Bournemouth - Kieffer Moore

The striker has struggled to find the net for Bournemouth this season, with four goals in 20 Premier League appearances. He has been in and out of the team, with most of his appearances coming off the bench, and has failed to make a significant impact when he has played. While Moore has shown glimpses of his quality, he needs to improve his consistency and performances to help Bournemouth climb up the table and avoid relegation.

Brentford - Mikkel Damsgaard

The Danish midfielder arrived at Brentford from Sampdoria in the summer after an impressive performance for Denmark in the Euros. However, he has struggled to replicate that form in the Premier League, with no goals or assists in his first season in England. He has shown flashes of his quality, but has been inconsistent and is still adjusting to the demands of the Premier League.

Brighton & Hove Albion - Danny Welbeck

The veteran forward has had a stop-start season for Brighton, struggling with injuries and inconsistent form. He has only scored two goal and provided two assist in 17 league appearances, and has often been used as a substitute rather than a starter. Despite his experience and pedigree, Welbeck has failed to make a significant impact for Brighton this season.

Chelsea - Mason Mount

The midfielder was one of Chelsea's standout performers last season, but he has struggled with injuries and inconsistent form this season. He has only scored three goals and provided two assists in 23 league appearances, and has been in and out of the team as a result. Despite his undoubted talent, Mount has not been able to replicate his form from last season so far. Despite his struggles, Mount remains a key player for Chelsea and has the potential to turn his season around.

Crystal Palace - Tyrick Mitchell

The young defender has been a regular starter for Crystal Palace this season, but he has been inconsistent. He has shown promise with some solid defensive performances, but has also made some costly errors that have led to goals. His lack of experience at the top level is perhaps the reason for his inconsistency, but he has the potential to become a solid Premier League player.

Everton - Dwight McNeil

The winger arrived at Everton from Burnley in the summer with the hope that he could add some creativity and goals to the team. However, he has struggled to make an impact, with only two goal and two assist in 24 league appearances. He has been in and out of the team, and has failed to provide the attacking spark that Everton have been looking for.

Fulham - Harry Wilson

The attacking midfielder arrived at Fulham on loan from Liverpool in the summer, with the hope that he could add some creativity and goals to the team. However, he has been inconsistent, with no goal or assist in 17 league appearances. He has shown glimpses of his quality, but has not been able to produce it consistently enough.

Leeds United - Rodrigo Moreno

Leeds United's Spanish forward, Rodrigo Moreno, has struggled to make an impact in the Premier League this season. After joining from Valencia for a club-record fee last summer, Rodrigo was expected to play a crucial role in Leeds' attacking setup. However, the forward has managed to score 10 goals in 18 appearances so far, which is below par for a player of his calibre. While Rodrigo has shown glimpses of his talent, he has been largely inconsistent and needs to improve his performances to help Leeds climb up the table.

Leicester - Jamie Vardy

Leicester City's talismanic striker, Jamie Vardy, has struggled to replicate his form from the previous seasons so far in the Premier League. While the veteran forward has managed to score only one goal in 25 appearances, his overall contribution to the team's attacking play has been limited. Vardy's lack of form has also coincided with Leicester's struggles in the league, with the Foxes currently sitting in 10th place in the table. Leicester will need Vardy to step up his game in the second half of the season if they are to challenge for a European spot.

Liverpool - Fabinho

Liverpool's defensive midfielder, Fabinho, has been one of the team's most consistent performers in recent seasons. However, the Brazilian has struggled to replicate his form from the previous campaigns so far this season. Fabinho's performances have been affected by injuries and inconsistent form, which has resulted in Liverpool's struggles in the league. While the Brazilian has shown glimpses of his quality in some games, he needs to improve his consistency and fitness levels to help Liverpool challenge for the title.

Manchester City - Jack Grealish

Manchester City's marquee signing, Jack Grealish, has failed to live up to his billing so far this season. The English midfielder, who joined from Aston Villa for a British record fee last summer, has struggled to make an impact in the City midfield. Grealish's performances have been below par, with the midfielder managing to score 3 goals in 20+ appearances so far. While Grealish has shown glimpses of his quality, he needs to improve his consistency and decision-making to help City challenge for the title.

Manchester United - Jadon Sancho

Manchester United's highly-rated winger, Jadon Sancho, has struggled to make an impact in the Premier League since his move from Borussia Dortmund last summer. The Englishman has managed to score just one goal in 7 appearances so far, which is below par for a player of his calibre. Sancho has also struggled with injuries and inconsistent form, which has resulted in United's struggles in the league. While Sancho has shown glimpses of his quality, he needs to improve his performances and adapt to the physicality of the Premier League to help United challenge for the title.

Newcastle United - Joe Willock

Newcastle United's loan signing, Joe Willock, was one of the most impressive performers in the league last season. The young midfielder, who joined from Arsenal on a season-long loan last summer, scored eight goals in 14 appearances for the Magpies. However, Willock has struggled to replicate his form this season, with the midfielder managing to score just two goals in 23 appearances so far. While Willock has shown glimpses of his quality, he needs to improve his consistency and decision-making to help Newcastle keep up a hold in the top of the table.

Nottingham Forest - Jesse Lingard

However, Lingard has struggled to replicate his form this season, with the midfielder managing to score no goal in 15 appearances for Nottingham Forest. While Lingard has shown glimpses of his quality, he needs to improve his performances to help Forest push for promotion to the Premier League again.

Southampton - Joe Aribo

Southampton's Nigerian midfielder, Joe Aribo, has struggled to make an impact in the Premier League this season. The young midfielder, who joined from Rangers last summer, has managed to score just one goal in 18 appearances so far. Aribo has also struggled with injuries and inconsistent form, which has resulted in Southampton's struggles in the league. While Aribo has shown glimpses of his quality, he needs to improve his performances and adapt to the physicality of the Premier League to help Southampton climb up the table.

Tottenham Hotspur - Richarlison

Tottenham Hotspur's Brazilian forward, Richarlison, has struggled to make an impact in the Premier League since his move from Everton last summer. The forward has managed to score zero goals but had 2 assists in 17 appearances so far, which is below par for a player of his calibre. Richarlison has also struggled with injuries and inconsistent form, which has resulted in Tottenham's struggles in the league. While Richarlison has shown glimpses of his quality, he needs to improve his performances and adapt to the tactical demands of Spurs to help the team challenge for a top-four spot.

West Ham United - Lucas Paqueta

West Ham United's Brazilian midfielder, Lucas Paqueta, has struggled to make an impact in the Premier League since his move from Lyon last summer. The midfielder has managed to score two goals in 17 appearances. Paqueta has also struggled with injuries and inconsistent form, which has resulted in West Ham's struggles in the league. While Paqueta has shown glimpses of his quality, he needs to improve his performances and adapt to the tactical demands of the Premier League to help West Ham challenge for a top-four spot.

Wolverhampton - Diego Costa

Wolverhampton's veteran striker, Diego Costa, has struggled to make an impact in the Premier League since his move from Atletico Madrid last summer. The forward has managed to score no goals at all in 14 appearances so far, which is far below for a player of his experience. Costa has also struggled with injuries and adapting to the physicality of the Premier League, which has resulted in Wolverhampton's struggles in the league. While Costa has shown glimpses of his quality, he needs to improve his fitness levels and adapt to the tactical demands of the Premier League to help Wolverhampton climb up the table.

To wrap it up..
