Premier League clubs that have used most players

These teams went on to use the most amount of players from their squad in order to secure positive results.

Premier League is one of the most popular football leagues in the world for its physicality and high-octane action. The contesting teams in the league have immense financial might and do not shy away from using a barrage of players in order to achieve their target.

The 2022-23 season of the Premier League has been gruelling, edgy and one without a lot of margin for error. Premier League clubs such as Nottingham Forest and Chelsea among others were extremely active in the transfer market, buying and using a lot of different players. There were also a few clubs that had to resort to using plenty of players due to terrible luck with injuries and suspensions.

As the Premier League’s latest season reaches its conclusion, here is a look at the top five clubs that have used the most players in the league (as of 13 May 2023):

Wolves – 31

Wolves have used 31 different players during the 2022-23 campaign. They are one of the Premier League teams that have struggled with injuries to players like Jose Sa, Raul Jimenez, Chiquinho, etc. Interestingly, Wolves also made several signings for the 2022-23 season such as Craig Dawson, Diego Costa, Mario Lemina and more. 

However, the drawback of using so many players is a lack of cohesion and chemistry in the squad. Due to this obstacle, the Wolves have struggled to get out of the bottom half of the league table all season.

Bournemouth – 31

Bournemouth has also used 31 players across the 2022-23 campaign of the Premier League. They are one of the teams that linger in the bottom half of the table, often flirting with the idea of dropping into the relegation zone.

The Cherries brought in players like Neto, Marco Senesi, Dango Ouattara, Ryan Fredericks and more in order to salvage survival in the Premier League. With 39 points in 36 matches, Bournemouth are in a safe position and will likely play in the English top division next season.

Southampton – 32

Southampton became the first Premier League team to suffer relegation from the 2022-23 season. Despite using 32 players across the term, the Saints’ relegation was confirmed after an 11-year stay in the English top flight.

Several players like Armel Bella-Kotchap, Romeo Lavia, Carlos Alcaraz, Joe Aribo, Mislav Orsic and more were brought in this term. However, with 24 points in 36 matches, Southampton’s relegation became a reality.

Chelsea – 32

Chelsea raised a lot of eyebrows in the summer transfer market and then went on to go one step further in the winter transfer window with their activity. Todd Boehly-led Blues went all out in signing players in order to become big guns in the Premier League again.

Despite using 32 players in the 2022-23 season, Chelsea are struggling to secure a place in the top half of the league table. Newcomers like Joao Felix, Enzo Fernandez, Wesley Fofana, Marc Cucurella and more cost CFC a whopping €611.49m in transfer fees.

Nottingham Forest – 33

It is not surprising to see a team coming from the second tier into the Premier League spending huge money to sign quality players. However, Nottingham Forest broke records in this situation. When the club made its 21st signing in the summer, it broke the English record for most signings in a single transfer window.

Overall, Nottingham Forest used 33 players during the Premier League’s 2022-23 season. The club is close to securing survival after languishing in the relegation zone for long periods of time during the term.
