The top 10 dribblers in the Premier League in 2023-24: Doku, Sterling…

From Thierry Henry to Eden Hazard, the Premier League has been home to some elite dribblers over the years and stars from Chelsea, Aston Villa and Manchester City make the cut in 2023-24.

There aren’t many better feelings than watching your winger skin his full-back and leave him for dead with a crafty drop of the shoulder or burst of pace and plenty of current Premier League stars have mastered this craft.

We’ve taken a closer look at the Premier League so far and found the 10 players who have completed the most successful dribbles up to this point.

Note: if players are tied on the number of successful dribbles, we have ranked them by their dribble success rate.

10. Mohammed Kudus – 28

The 23-year-old has proven to be a useful signing for the Hammers and he’s certainly injected some flair into their forward line. Kudus grabbed plenty of attention at the World Cup with his eye-catching performances for Ghana and he’s done the same with West Ham so far.

Having completed 28 dribbles, Kudus leads the way at the London Stadium with the most dribbles this season. He’s also managed to produce four goal contributions in that time, too.

9. Marcus Tavernier – 28

A hugely underrated bit of business from the Cherries last summer was snapping up Tavernier from Middlesbrough. The 24-year-old played a key role in their survival bid and he’s been even better this time around.

Capable of playing on either flank, Tavernier is a nightmare for his opposing full-back. So far this season he has completed 28 successful dribbles and boasts an impressive success rate of 56 per cent.

8. Jordan Ayew – 31 

The Ghanaian forward has never been the most prolific for Crystal Palace, but he does bring more to the table than just goals. Ayew is currently averaging 1.9 dribbles per game and has completed 31 so far this season.

7. Raheem Sterling – 32

Despite Chelsea’s struggles under Mauricio Pochettino, Sterling has had a relatively decent individual campaign so far. Along with Cole Palmer, Sterling has been the Blues’ main attacking outlet who often gets them moving up the pitch.

The 29-year-old has six goal contributions in the league so far and has completed more successful dribbles than any other Chelsea player. If Pochettino’s side are going to turn their season around, Sterling will be crucial.

6. Eberechi Eze – 32 

Last season, Eze completed a total of 71 successful dribbles which was more than any other Premier League player. The 25-year-old plays like he has the ball on a string as he is able to wriggle out of the tightest of spots with one fluid drop of the shoulder.

Crystal Palace fans haven’t had much to shout about so far, but at least they are treated to an Eze masterclass every now and again. In total, he has completed 32 successful dribbles with a success rate of 59 per cent.

5. Kaoru Mitoma – 33

Roberto De Zerbi’s side have been plenty of fun to watch this season and Mitoma has caught the eye once again. With a total of 33 successful dribbles so far, Brighton fans will be thankful that they have the Japanese winger tied down until 2027.

4. Luca Koleosho – 33

Burnley haven’t had a great time upon their return to the top flight, but there have been some flashes of quality from Vincent Kompany’s side. Koleosho in particular has shown some glimpses of talent, although he was recently sidelined with a knee injury.

“It’s bad news for us, he’s going to be out for a while apparently,” Kompany told the club website. “I can’t really share the medical details but it appears in the collision he did something to his knee. We think he’s going to be long-term fine, but short-term we have to give him the time to recover.”

3. John McGinn – 33

In a list predominately made up of forwards and wingers, McGinn breaks the mould by taking third spot. The Aston Villa midfielder has been the glue in Unai Emery’s side and his role in the team cannot go underestimated.

Along with completing the most successful dribbles in the Aston Villa squad, McGinn has also chipped in with six goal contributions so far. Undoubtedly, a modern-day Aston Villa legend.

2. Matheus Cunha – 35

Wolves have been guilty of being a bit blunt in the final third over the last few years, but thankfully, Cunha has provided a spark of late. The Brazilian forward already has more goals than Wolves’ top scorer from last season and he’s been an excellent creative outlet too.

Cunha will often get fans out of their seats and with an impressive 35 successful dribbles so far, he just misses out on the top spot.

1. Jeremy Doku – 44

No surprises here as the Manchester City man sits on top of the pile. Doku has been a breath of fresh air in Pep Guardiola’s side as the 21-year-old has added a fresh dynamic to the champions this time around.

His most eye-catching performance of the season came against Bournemouth where he produced five goal contributions and managed to complete five dribbles in that game alone.
