The new season of the English Premier League is underway, and a number of players have already grabbed fans’ attention with their eye-catching performances.
Most of these players are big-money signings who are already established stars. However, there are several youngsters who are also looking to make an impression in one of the world’s best leagues.
Here, we look at five youngsters who are likely to enjoy their breakthrough season in the English Premier League this season.
Ryan Sessegnon (Fulham)
The English youngster is not really an unknown name as he has already caught the fancy of big clubs with his performances with the Cottagers. However, this is his first season playing top-tier football.
The 18-year-old scored 16 goals for Fulham last season, but he is yet to open his account in three games this season. He might take some time to get used to this level, but he is bound to go places in the coming seasons.
James Maddison (Leicester City)
Another youngster who has made the leap from the Championship to the Premier League in the summer. However, Maddison has made that move in a whopping £20 million move from Norwich City to Leicester.
He was a regular starter with the Canaries, and he has been signed as a first-team signing by the Foxes. The 21-year-old mid-fielder has already opened his account with the Foxes with a goal in the 2-0 win over Wolves.
Matteo Guendouzi (Arsenal)
The French midfielder has surprised everyone with his early performances for Arsenal. Prior to his £7m summer move from Lorient, the 19-year-old had made only eight top-flight appearances.
However, he made an instant impact in pre-season for Unai Emery’s side. As a result, he has been included in every Emery’s starting eleven this season. He is tenacious in midfield, and at times, he has outshone his senior teammates in the Premier League.
Phil Foden (Manchester City)
Foden is arguably one of the best English talents in his age-group. The 18-year-old made five substitute appearances for City in Premier League last season, and he is eager to kick on his senior career in 18-19.
He is highly regarded by Pep Guardiola, and it appears that this could be his year. He was given a start in the Community Shield game against Chelsea, and he didn’t fail to make an impression with his eye-catching display.
Diogo Dalot (Manchester United)
The 19-year-old right-back has joined Manchester United in a £19million deal. Prior to his move to United, the Portuguese defender had made only seven senior appearances for Porto.
He is quite inexperienced, but Jose Mourinho had already branded him as the best full-back in his age-group. He is currently nursing an injury, but he should soon make his debut for the Red Devils.
Now that you’ve known how these top players perform in the field, you should understand the importance of statistic to success in soccer betting.
