PSG’s Standouts: Unveiling the Top Performers in the 2023-24 Season Power Rankings

Despite star boy Kylian Mbappé leaving for the bright lights of Real Madrid this summer, Luis Enrique has the French capital humming as his PSG side sit 11 points clear at the top of the table and are in the driver’s seat to reach the Champions League quarter-finals.

As PSG and other top clubs clash in the latter rounds of the Champions League, betting apps like Betway are putting up competitive odds for some of the most important matches of the season.

But, in a club loaded with world-class talent at practically every position, who are the true standouts that deserve consideration for PSG Player of the Season? In this article, we’ll rank PSG’s five best players of 2024.

5. Ousmane Dembélé – RW

It might be a surprise to some because of his poor goalscoring form, which has even gotten him mocked by former PSG star Neymar, but Ousmane Dembélé has been the type of dynamic athletic force on the wing the Parisian club needs to open up the game.

Dembele leads the club in assists, progressive carries, and key passes, as his explosive speed on the outside has been hard for many defenders to handle. If he starts putting the ball in the net again with consistency, Dembele will be that much more dangerous at right wing going forward.

4. Gianluigi Donnarumma – GK

Gianluigi Donnarumma has had a handful of rough games and high-profile errors this year that some will point to, but the numbers tell that the young Italian wonderkid is having perhaps the best season of his career.

Setting career highs in save percentage, clean sheet percentage, and goals against per 90, the UEFA Euro 2020 winner is about as reliable as they come in between the posts.

3. Marquinhos – CB

PSG’s veteran captain and the beating heart of their defense, Marquinhos will undoubtedly go down as a club legend. The Brazilian defender has formed a formidable pairing with recent addition Milan Škriniar and is a major reason why the club is allowing less than a goal per game in Ligue 1.

Beyond his defensive duties, Marquinhos is one of the best ball-playing CBs in the world, completing over five progressive passes per game while maintaining a sterling 93.9 completion percentage.

2. Warren Zaïre – Emery – CM

The future of football in Paris, Warren Zaire – Emery is achieving things that we’ve rarely seen from a 17-year-old on a football pitch. He became the youngest French player in history to score in the Champions League, chipped in two assists against AC Milan, and has already made himself indispensable in PSG’s midfield.

As the club prepares to enter the post-Mbappé era, Zaïre-Emery is undoubtedly at the center of their next era.

1. Kylian Mbappé – FW

What is there really to say about arguably the world’s best player?

He might be leaving in the summer, but Kylian Mbappé is undoubtedly still the heliocentric focal point of PSG’s dominant attack. An all-around force with the ball at his feet, Mbappé’s blistering pace, supreme touch, and world-class dribbling have made him all but unstoppable, as the 2018 World Cup winner has scored 25 in just 28 games so far this season.
