With the Premier League season well and truly underway, certain players are beginning to stand out from the crowd.

Let's take a look at who we think have been the ten best forwards in the 2022/23 Premier League campaign so far...

10. Darwin Nunez (new entry)

With five goals and an assist in his last seven matches in all competitions, including a double last time out against Southampton, Darwin Nunez is starting to show why Liverpool paid a rather hefty amount of money for him.

9. Leandro Trossard (-)

With his assist at Wolves, Leandro Trossard now has nine goal contributions in 14 matches this season, which is pretty good going.

8. Callum Wilson (-)

Many expected Callum Wilson to warm the bench this season, but Alexander Isak's injury has given him a chance to play and he's taking it, getting six goals and two assists in 10 starts, as well as a place in England's World Cup squad.

7. Gabriel Jesus (down 2)

Gabriel Jesus may not be banging the goals in, but he's been a key reason why Arsenal as a team have been.

6. Bukayo Saka (down 3)

Bukayo Saka hasn't been at his best in the last few weeks but still has two assists in his last three league matches, which speaks volumes.

5. Ivan Toney (re-entry)

Ivan Toney returns to our rankings after his brace against Manchester City. We hope this eases the pain of not going to the World Cup, Ivan.

4. Rodrigo (up 6)

Rodrigo has nine goals this season, including five in his last four with his brace last time out so nearly earning Leeds a point at Spurs. Anyone know why on earth he isn't in Spain's World Cup squad?

3. Miguel Almiron (up 1)

Jack Grealish is usually the one making a fool of other players but he's being made a fool of by Miguel Almiron this season. The man who the Man City player took the mick out of in May has been on fire recently, getting seven goals and an assist in his last eight games.

You should've never doubted him, Jack.

2. Harry Kane (-)

Kane quietly continues to chip away, managing 12 goals from 15 games in the league thus far. If anyone can catch that superhuman in Manchester, it's him.

1. Erling Haaland (-)

Remember when people were speculating on Manchester City's ability to accommodate Erling Haaland in their tactical setup? Remember the Darwin Nunez comparisons? Remember the Community Shield? Us neither.

Having fitness issues, the Norwegian has scored just once in November and still has six more goals than anyone else, which says it all.
