The Premier League Returns!

Following on from similar posts featuring players from other leagues, here are three players to watch out for as the English Premier League kicks off once again…

Sam Johnstone – West Bromwich Albion

Johnstone is a former England youth international who progressed through the ranks at Manchester United. There were plenty of loan spells including a good stint at Aston Villa but now he’s now settled as West Brom’s number one. Suddenly England have good competition for goalkeeping spots and Johnstone’s arrival in the top flight can only be good for the national team. Aged 27 he’s a mere pup by goalkeeper standards and has earned the right to challenge himself at the highest level.

Miguel Almiron – Newcastle United

The Paraguayan has been a real live wire since arriving in the northeast but end product has often been lacking. Post lockdown however and goals started to come with more regularity. Newcastle have a host of problems with their strikers, whether it be injury, form… ability but Almiron’s pace and directness from the midfield is exciting and Newcastle will hope, result in the floodgates opening!

Pablo Hernandez – Leeds United

Hernandez is 35 and is unlikely to play every minute for Leeds this season but the former Valencia and Swansea City player is both stylish and high on quality as well as being capable of creating and scoring goals. Despite his advanced years, he should contribute for an Elland Road side that play to their strengths and like to entertain.
