Elling Holland may not be the best player in the Premier League in the 2022-23 season.
On the 26th (Korean time), Britain’s’The Athletic’ prepared time to forecast the end of the English Premier League (EPL) in the 2022-23 season at the end of the season. They predicted which team would win, who would laugh in the race for fourth place, which team would be relegated, and who would win various awards such as the Player of the Year award.
Even at the beginning of the season, the Player of the Year award was already reserved. Manchester City’s ambitious transfer of Erling Haaland has been perfect so far. 25 goals and 3 assists in 19 league games. As soon as Haaland came to the EPL, he succeeded in changing all records related to his scoring to his name.
No player has scored 23 goals in a single season in the EPL since the 2017-18 season. However, Haaland scored 25 goals in the first half of the league. Most of the public opinion was that Haaland would of course take the Player of the Year award as it was expected to change the EPL scorer record.
The player who broke that expectation was Martin Odegaard. He is the main player who led Arsenal to the top of the league this season and is one of the players who fully understands coach Mikel Arteta’s football. Odegard, who was once a forgotten genius, started to show good form again from last season, and then exploded properly this season. He is poised to surpass his career-high record with 8 goals and 5 assists in 18 games. 토토사이트
If Arsenal wins, it is evaluated that Odegaard is also qualified to win the Player of the Year award because he is also serving as the captain. Three of ‘The Athletic”s seven reporters hoped Odegard would win the award.
Reporter Nick Miller, who cast one vote for Odegaard, said, “We all know who will win the Player of the Year award, but I will cast one vote for Odegaard.” Journalist Adam Krafton, who predicted Haaland’s award, also argued, “Haland could score too many goals to make the vote meaningless, but if Arsenal win the title, Bukayo Sakana Odegaard should win.”
