Top five players with most dribblers per 90

Only one player from a top-four team makes it to the list

A flawless dribble is the best thing you can have in football. To note, that is. For this reason, we’ve compiled a list of the Premier League‘s top dribblers for the 2022–23 campaign.

The finest dribblers blend quickness and tricks to confuse defenders. Some dribblers are focused on speed, while others are all about gimmicks.

All are amazing to see, but who was most adept at tangling their opponents up in knots, going beyond simply the obvious eye test?

Let’s look at the top five players this season in terms of dribbles.

2.6 – Said Benrahma

Benrahma was consistently a skilled dribbler, even back in the days when he played with Brentford in the league. Consequently, it is not surprising that the winger for West Ham United made this list.

This season, the Algerian international recorded 2.6 accurate dribbles in every match. He played 35 games and scored six goals. The 27-year-old also provided three assists.

3.2 – Luis Díaz

Luis Diáz arrived in Liverpool from Porto in January 2022 and made a remarkably quick impression. Liverpool initially intended to postpone their transfer until the summer.

However, a long-term injury forced the Colombian to spend the majority of the month on the sidelines. Despite this, Diaz is still among the season’s best dribblers. The forward, a former Porto player has taken 3.2 dribbles thus far this year. Diaz only made 17 appearances in the Premier League, scoring four times and assisting twice.

3.4 – Kamaldeen Sulemana

Kamaldeen Sulemana, who cost Southampton £24.6 million after moving from Rennes, has the quickness and dribbling ability to blow up the Premier League. He played 18 games in the league this season.

In comparison to Allan Saint-Maximin, the best dribbler in the Premier League, has completed 3.4 dribbles this season, a significant increase. Sulemana defeated his opponent at Saints more frequently than any other player in the Premier League this past campaign, and it wasn’t even close. And with the Saints relegated, he will be on the list of potential transfers to big clubs.

3.5 – Adama Traoré

Both of Traore’s statistics, seven completed dribbles per 90 minutes in the first half of the season at Wolves and 3.7 this season at Wolves, should have been sufficient for him to take the second spot on this list.

The Wolves loanee’s final product dipped a little after an outstanding start. According to rumours, Barcelona won’t fulfil his permanent move clause, so it’s unclear what will happen next.

4.9 – Allan Saint-Maximin

Despite representing a faltering team in one of the hardest leagues in the world, the Frenchman leads Newcastle’s retaliation with his frantic, never-ending runs.

When he comes back towards himself to wait for his team members, they function as an unconventional way of keeping up the ball. Saint-Maximin, a master of the dribble, is still one of the Premier League’s most entertaining strikers and a true cult figure among Magpies.
