The recently concluded Premier League season had it all from surprises to shocks, as the supporters were able to witness an action-packed campaign. There were plenty of twists along the way, with some surprise finishes at the top end of the table by unexpected clubs. Besides, teams that were anticipated to have a solid campaign found themselves at the bottom end of the league, struggling to even survive relegation.
Who has played the most minutes?
There are multiple players sharing the top spot in this table. Manchester United goalkeeper David De Gea, Arsenal shot-stopper Aaron Ramsdale, Brentford keeper David Raya and Everton defender James Tarkowski have all played 3420 minutes during the whole 2022-23 Premier League season. Three of these four players are goalkeepers, with centre-back Tarkowski being the only exception.
Goalkeepers are often unchanged and the same shot-stopper are most likely to play for the team throughout the season. However, the same cannot be said for players in other positions. They would be rested every now and then to keep themselves fit. Keeping that in mind, it is quite impressive to see Everton defender James Tarkowski share the top spot. This shows his ability to remain fit and stay on top of his game all season long.
As for the three keepers are concerned, all of them had promising campaigns with their respective clubs. David De Gea registered the most clean sheets in the Premier League to help Manchester United finish in an unlikely third spot. Meanwhile, Aaron Ramsdale was unbeatable, as he played a crucial role in helping Arsenal finish a respectable second place. David Raya had an equally special campaign, as Brentford established them as a force to be reckoned with.
Harry Kane has been ever-present for Tottenham
It is quite rare to see a striker available for a club for almost the entire campaign. However, Harry Kane did just that for Tottenham Hotspur by registering 3,406 minutes. Spurs might have had a season to forget, however, Kane continued to score goals for fun. Check out the table below to understand more about the players that have played the most number of minutes in the 2022-23 Premier League season.
