Every season always comes with a new reason to watch more football. Beautiful goals, daring tackles, bust-ups between players and managers, the English Premier League is always full of entertainment. But the most exciting dish that every season brings out is the excitement of watching new young players come through. What surprise will the new season serve us? Here are the 5 potential young players who will light up the coming season.
- Demarai Gray
This 21 year old youngster from Leicester City has been in the shadows at the club for a while now, pushed down the pecking order by the likes of Vardy and Mahrez but has the skill to play alongside the big names and even surpass them. The coming season could be the one he has been waiting for.
- Jordan Pickford
When Everton splashed a staggering £30m for this 23 year old goalkeeper the world gasped in shock. But what the world doesn’t know is that Jordan Pickford is a gem for the future. Playing under Koeman is going to boost him to the limelight.
- Tammy Abraham
A Chelsea youth player who made only 2 appearances for the senior side last season despite having loads of talent. He scored 26 goals while on loan at Bristol and this adds to his case the need to get more senior appearances. This could be his breakthrough season.
- Dominic Solanke
Having struggled to get regular football under Antonio Conte last season, Dominic Solanke has finally gotten a break through after moving to Liverpool recently to play under Jurgen Klopp who is known to favour youngsters. He already has shown shades of what he would offer with goals in pre-season friendlies.
- Alfie Mawson
This 22-year-old central defender has been a fringe player at Swansea since his move from Barnsley. Under the new coach, however, Alfie Mawson has started to find his feet and with the confidence of the coach behind him, he is going to be stellar performer this coming season.
