Haaland, Nunez & 9 Others Named in The Best Premier League U23 XI

The Premier League’s two best teams have acquired two young, talented strikers in the form of Erling Haaland and Darwin Nunez.

Haaland, 21, is already among the finest footballers on the planet, while Nunez, 22, enjoyed a stellar campaign at Benfica last time out, scoring 34 goals across all competitions.

It’s going to be interesting to see whether they’re able to hit the ground running with City and Liverpool in 2022/23, but it’s hard to envisage a world in which either of them flop.

Manchester City and Liverpool have already strengthened their forward lines since the conclusion of the 2021/22 season.

As well as strengthening the Premier League’s top dogs, Haaland and Nunez’s arrivals mean the division’s best XI made up of players aged 23 or under is now even more ridiculous.

And when we say ridiculous, we’re not exaggerating one single bit…

The Premier League’s best U23 XI is stacked with talent

The XI (4-1-2-1-2): Illan Meslier (Leeds United, 22), Trent Alexander-Arnold (Liverpool, 23), Wesley Fofana (Leicester City), Ibrahima Konate (Liverpool, 23), Marc Cucurella Brighton, 23), Declan Rice (West Ham, 23), Bukayo Saka (Arsenal, 20), Phil Foden (Manchester City, 22), Mason Mount (Chelsea 23), Darwin Nunez (Liverpool, 22) & Erling Haaland (Manchester City, 21)

If that group of players were assembled and given a full season together in the Premier League, they’d be challenging for the title.

The depth of talent aged 23 or under in the Premier League is now so strong that the likes of Martin Odegaard, Jadon Sancho, Reece James, Dejan Kulusevski, Kai Havertz, Marc Guehi, Emile Smith Rowe and Gabriel Martinelli all fail to make the strongest XI.

The fact five of the players in the team we selected, Alexander-Arnold, Rice, Saka, Foden and Mount, are English is certainly a huge positive for the national team moving forward as well.

Although try telling an England fan that after their 4-0 defeat to Hungary in the UEFA Nations League on Tuesday evening.
