5 players to look out for ahead of the start of the Premier League season.

5 players to look out for ahead of the start of the Premier League season - Sancho heads an all star cast...


1. Jadon Sancho (Man United )

After a tricky start to his Man United career, the tricky winger is now rejuvenated after a positive pre-season, where he has netted three times. Ten Hag has a history of ensuring his wingers have a large impact on the game, examples being both Dusan Tadic and David Neres. We back Jadon to hit the ground running this time out in the Premier League. Beating his rating of 5.54 last year shouldn't be too difficult either.

2. Gabriel Jesus (Arsenal )

The Brazilian had enjoyed many years with Man City where he had constantly been a threat and goal scorer, however he felt that it was his time to move on and become the main man. Arsenal have given him this opportunity and all evidence from pre-season is indicating that he will thrive under the pressure. His average rating of last year was 6.55 but now he is considered the talisman, we back him to improve that.

3. Taiwo Awoniyi (Nottingham Forest )

The Nigerian has joined Forest on a club-record fee and will be looking to establish his authority from the get go. He scored 20 goals in all competitions last season for Union Berlin and Reds fans will be hoping he can repeat this impressive record for them this year round.

4. Mo Salah (Liverpool )

The Egyptian King is ready to go again after signing a big bucks contract extension with the Reds! After finishing top in both the goal scoring and assist charts last season, he will be hoping to do the same again. With Sadio Mane departing, it means that much of the expectation for goals will lie with the Egyptian, however we fully expect him to live up the expectation, as he usually does. To improve on a rating of 7.18 will be tough but we think he can achieve it!

5. Leon Bailey (Aston Villa )

Leon had a very tough first season at the Villa, largely due to a constant flow of injuries he had. However, he did show promise at times, notably that great finish against Everton at Villa Park last September. He has also had a strong pre-season, scoring a wonderful goal from outside the box against Man United. We believe he will improve on his average rating of 5.82 from last season.
