Arsenal and Manchester City players dominate the list

The Premier League 2023-24 season is over, and it was the highest-scoring season ever. A title race that dragged on till the final day, saw Manchester City crowned as the champions for the unprecedented fourth consecutive time in a row.

Now, the season end means the team of the season shouts. So here is our Premier League Team of the season 2023-24, which will include players who were involved in the relegation battle, as well as those who were in the top half of the table.

Premier League 2023-24 Team of the Season

Jordan Pickford (Everton: Goalkeeper)

England’s No. 1 had his best Everton season, keeping 13 clean sheets and making 117 saves. While David Raya won the Golden Glove due to Arsenal’s strong defensive resilience, Jordan Pickford fell short of just three clean sheets to win it despite fighting for relegation.

Ben White (Arsenal: Right Back)

Ben White’s impressive performance this season has shown that right-back is no longer a position of concern for Arsenal. Jurrien Timber’s ACL injury earlier in the season raised eyebrows and caused concern in the back line.

But White stepped up, disproving earlier doubts. Further, the ex-Brighton player’s consistent performance in the Premier League has established himself as an excellent right-back.

William Saliba (Arsenal: Centre-Back)

Arsenal’s defence has been outstanding this season. So, another defender from the Gunners’ side is not a surprise. William Saliba has played every minute, a first for an outfielder in the club’s Premier League history. While there is some debate about who is better between Saliba and his partner Gabriel Magalhaes, Saliba edges out this time.

Virgil van Dijk (Liverpool: Centre-Back)

Although Jurgen Klopp’s farewell season at Liverpool could not be as eventful as they once thought, the Reds still ended with a Carabao Cup. Their skipper, Virgil van Dijk dominated the defence, winning over 80% of his aerial duels.

Many had doubted the Dutch defender’s ability to return to his pre-ACL injury form. However, he has made a strong comeback and this season has been a prime example. Despite the scepticism, he remains one of the top defenders in the game.

Josko Gvardiol (Manchester City: Left Back)

The left-back position was the 4Peat winners’ weakest! Despite Andy Robertson’s high WhoScored rating and strong seasons from Antonee Robinson and Vitaliy Mykolenko, we have chosen Josko Gvardiol as our Left Back in the TOTS.

After a shaky start following his transfer from RB Leipzig, Gvardiol became crucial for Manchester City. He scored important goals, solidifying defensively, and quickly adapting to Pep Guardiola’s style. Some could even argue that he has adapted faster than players like Jack Grealish and Kalvin Phillips.

Rodri (Manchester City: Midfielder)

Despite a remarkable season, including a crucial final-day goal against West Ham, Rodri was astonishingly not nominated for Premier League Player of the Year. His exceptional ball control, positioning, defensive skills, and added goals and assists make him unmatched in his position, yet he was overlooked for the award.

Declan Rice (Arsenal: Midfielder)

Declan Rice makes a strong case for ‘signing of the season’! He has smoothly melted into this Arsenal squad and how? Joining England teammates Bukayo Saka and Aaron Ramsdale after leading West Ham to a Europa Conference League victory in Prague, performance pressure did not even get to him.

Despite being signed as a No. 6, Rice has shown his guile in the role left vacant by Bundesliga winner Granit Xhaka last summer. Hence, proving to be a £100m bargain.

Martin Odegaard (Arsenal: Midfielder)

Odegaard has admirably guided Arsenal’s title challenge with his leadership and work-rate. He is third for chances created in the current Premier League season (95).

Moreover, he has directly contributed to 16 of his team’s goals. Despite a delayed rise to prominence, Odegaard has convincingly established himself as one of the premier midfielders in the sport.

Cole Palmer (Chelsea: Right Wing)

Cole Palmer bested Chelsea legend Eden Hazard’s best-ever season in the Blue jersey in just his first season. Transitioning into a Chelsea squad in disarray, Palmer’s performance of 22 goals and 11 assists, propelled the team to sixth place.

His impact deserves recognition and it has even earned him the Premier League Young Player of the Year award.

Premier League 2023-24 Team of the season

Ollie Watkins (Aston Villa: Striker)

Though some may question Ollie Watkins over Erling Haaland, the English Villan had an outstanding season with 13 assists and 19 goals. Not including any Aston Villa players in our team of the season would have been a little unreasonable.

Despite the possibility of not starting for England in Germany this summer, Watkins’ exceptional performance has propelled Villa to qualify for the Champions League.

Phil Foden (Manchester City: Left Wing)

In the final match against West Ham, Phil Foden showed why he earned the title of Premier League Player of the Year. His nineteen goals this season make him a key player.

Foden has thrived in the middle for City, especially during the time of Kevin De Bruyne’s injury. However, it is on the left side where he gives the defenders a run-in for their money.
