8 best Man City players in 23/24 season according to Whoscored's flawed ranking model

Manchester City were fighting for the Treble again this season, however, they managed to get only the Premier League title. Still, it was a historic campaign as they won their consecutive 4th title - a historic achievement.

For some players like Phil Foden, it was the best season of their career, while others had a bit of a decline in performance.

Here's the WhoScored ranking of City players in the 23/24 season.

1. Rodri - 7.62

2. Kevin De Bruyne - 7.60

3. Phil Foden - 7.55

4. Erling Haaland - 7.40

5. Jeremy Doku - 7.24

6. Bernardo Silva - 7.15

7. Julian Alvarez - 7.10

8. Josko Gvardiol - 7.03

The WhoScored ranking model relies on statistical metrics like goals, assists, passes, tackles, interceptions, and other relevant actions to assess a player's performance.

However, it's criticized for potentially overlooking intangible qualities like leadership, decision-making, and off-the-ball movement, which are crucial but harder to quantify. Also, it may prioritize individual stats over team contributions, neglecting players who excel in less visible roles.
