Erling Haaland – Manchester City
Sending shockwaves across Europe last summer as it was announced that Erling Haaland would be arriving in the Premier League, the ex-Borussia Dortmund ace has enjoyed a record-breaking start to life with Manchester City.
While Pep Guardiola’s side might find themselves in a real Premier League title scrap with Arsenal, Haaland has only continued to cement his status as one of world football’s most lethal number nines.
Becoming the quickest player in Premier League history to reach 20 top-flight goals back in December, the 22-year-old also reached the halfway point of this season’s campaign with 25 strikes in the bank and cruising towards England’s Golden Boot.
With Manchester City once again tipped as the standout contender to get their hands on a first European crown this year, there is no doubt that Haaland will have an instrumental role to play in Guardiola’s charge for Champions League history.
Already notching five Champions League strikes and averaging a goal every 50 minutes, the Norwegian international will certainly take some stopping.

Kylian Mbappe – PSG
While Kylian Mbappe might have suffered real World Cup heartbreak out in Qatar over the winter, the Les Bleus icon has only continued on yet another history-making flurry in the French capital this season.
With the future Ballon d’Or winner hoping to fire PSG to a maiden Champions League crown in 2023, the one-time Monaco starlet has already made more European history this year.
Bagging seven strikes in PSG’s six Group H appearances prior to the World Cup interval, Mbappe became the youngest French player to hit the 40-goal milestone in Champions League history – a record that was previously held by Arsenal legend Thierry Henry.
Eventually finishing the 2022 World Cup with eight goals and yet another historic Golden Boot, the 24-year-old is spearheading a PSG squad that is glittering with heavyweight attacking options.
Already averaging over a goal per game during the Parisians’ Group H flurry, Mbappe will undoubtedly be seen as a standout pick for many when things get underway on Valentine’s Day.

Mohamed Salah – Liverpool
Although Liverpool might have shown a string of issues on either side of the World Cup interval, Jurgen Klopp’s side did eventually book their Champions League knockout stage ticket with relative ease.
Left stunned in Paris last year as they fell at the final hurdle thanks to a 1-0 loss against Real Madrid, the Premier League giants are desperate to go one-step further this time around.
Signing off their Group A adventure with five victories on the spin, the former Borussia Dortmund boss will know that Mohamed Salah has a crucial role to play if Liverpool are to spring a Champions League upset in 2023.
Although the one-time Chelsea prospect might have struggled to find top gear with much stability while on Premier League duties this season, Salah is enjoying yet another European romp.
In fact, along with recording that record-breaking hat-trick against Rangers back in October, Salah has notched seven Champions League strikes this season – a tally that sees him sat level with Mbappe at the top of the charts.
