So the long wait is over and the premier league finally goes underway. A premier league season after a World Cup year always feels like the perfect tonic for the World Cup hangover. It becomes much more exciting when the prospect of watching promising talents and proven managers come together in a single league. Here is a list of top 10 exciting new faces in the English Premier League to look out for and include in your Fantasy Premier League team.
- Jorginho (Chelsea)
With the signings of the pair of manager and the key player from Napoli, Chelsea looks the most probable team to challenge Man City and Guardiola for the title while playing their brand of football. Guardiola made no secret of his admiration of manager Sarri’s style of play at Napoli and in Jorginho, Chelsea managed to sign Napoli’s engine room which made them tick. He is a renowned pass master and an extremely smart player. Chelsea’s midfield will be the one to look out for this season with the likes of Fabregas and Jorginho dictating the play and Hazard and Willian doing their damages from the wings.
- Richarlison (Everton)
For the EPL followers, Richarlison wouldn’t be a name unheard of. He made his premier league debut last season with Watford and looked the most dangerous player Watford had to offer in attack. But a switch to Everton this season might prove to be his break-away season at the dawn of his career. Still 21 years of age and a rich Brazilian heritage, he is one of the exciting talents to look out for the future and in your Fantasy Premier League team.
- Bernard (Everton)
Another Everton player and Brazilian on the list. Looks like Everton is building an exciting project at Goodison Park pitting two Brazilians upfront in attack and let them do their magic. Still only 25 years old, he was phenomenal for Shakhtar last season in their premier league and in Europe, scoring 10 goals in 28 appearances in total while playing as an attacking midfielder. With an only £6.0m price tag in Fantasy Premier League, he could be a good buy for some managers looking to bolster their attack with goal-scoring midfielders.
- Yerry Mina (Everton)
It looks like you just can’t finish up with the hype of Everton this season. Yerry Mina was the last minute addition for Everton squad from Barcelona. He will be the third FC Barcelona player join the Toffees in recent times along with Andre Gomez and Lucas Digne. Yerry Mina had his fair share of struggles while adjusting to the technicalities and style of play of FC Barcelona, but his World Cup showings with Colombia proved that he can be an important asset for any team to have in defense and set pieces. The ridiculously tall and burly defender should not find it difficult to adjust to the pace and physicality of English club football. Also, his towering headers from set pieces are another nice addition in attack for Everton. If you want a goal-scoring defender in your Fantasy Premier League team, Yerry Mina is the answer for you.
- Ryan Sessegnon (Fulham)
This left-sided midfielder set the Championship on fire last season while helping Fulham getting promoted back to EPL after 4 years in Championship football wilderness. Fulham doesn’t want to let this opportunity go by and look like a team on a mission with the exciting coup like signings of Andre Schurrle, Jean Michael Seri, Aleksandr Mitrovic along with a handful others. But this 18-year-old kid will be the one to look out for in this fresh and exciting Fulham team this season. He was their highest scorer with 16 goals and 8 assists in the Championship. With a plethora of attacking talents around him this season, he could prove to be deadlier than last season.
- James Maddison (Leicester City)
He was another talent who lit the Championship on fire for Norwich City with his displays from the midfield. This 21-year-old midfielder amassed a total of 15 goals and 11 assists for Norwich City in their 2017-18 season. Now playing for Leicester against mighty Manchester United, he was the popular player of the match choice in their opening game of the 2018-19 season in EPL. This is no small feat to achieve this playing against the likes of Juan Mata, Paul Pogba, Alexis Sanchez and Marcus Rashford. He looked totally in control of the match and could have at least tied the match for Leicester City but for some early misfortune to go behind on a penalty. He could still prove to be the key figure for Leicester City in the remaining 37 matches of the season.
- Ruben Neves (Wolverhampton Wanderers)
Another Championship talent to play in EPL this season. He couldn’t have asked for a better start on his debut for Wolves against Everton; scoring a peach of a free-kick goal and providing an assist in the 2-2 opening game draw. A burly 21-year-old defensive midfielder, he has the perfect setup to showcase his talent to the world. In his fellow countrymen, he will have the perfect partner in Joao Moutinho in midfield for Wolves. With both the players playing in tandem, you can expect Wolves to cause some major upsets this season and help some big teams decide the title.
- Daniel Arzani (Manchester City)
This 19-year-old Australian player of Iranian origin could be the next big Aussie name to play in the premier league after Mark Viduka, Harry Kewell, Mark Schwarzer, Tim Cahill and Aaron Mooy of late. In Manchester City, he will have the perfect setting to develop his game to the next level under the stewardship of Pep Guardiola. He created a buzz before and during the World Cup 2018 for Australia and was ably rewarded with his transfer to EPL defending champions this term. His game time will be limited due to the presence of a plethora of talents available at City, but back him to mark his presence whenever a chance will be given to him.
- Fabinho (Liverpool)
His transfer from AS Monaco team was gleefully accepted by the Liverpool fans who couldn’t have asked for more. He could prove to be the presence Liverpool needed in its midfield to back up its blistering attack and recently formed solid defense. His exploits with AS Monaco helped them to reach the Champions League semi-final one year back. Since then he has been a target for many big clubs around Europe, but he rejected all to join Liverpool this term. Liverpool is building a dynasty and he could play an important part in the story.
- Naby Keita (Liverpool)
Another exciting Liverpool signing from RB Leipzig this season and Liverpool fans cannot contain their happiness. Naby Keita is an exciting addition to the attacking trio of Salah, Mane, and Firmino of Liverpool. His eye-catching performances for RB Leipzig aren’t a secret to any avid football follower. His lip smacking move to Liverpool makes them real contenders for the crown of English Premier League and Champions League this season. Along with Jurgen Klopp and his famous heavy metal brand of football, Naby Keita would be restless to dazzle his way to glory in Liverpool jersey.
