The 15 players set for a ‘Premier League breakthrough’ this season
The Premier League season is edging ever nearer with just a couple of days till the big kickoff, ensuring the excitement of football fans across the country is reaching almost breaking point. There’s nothing better than success on the field, but what can be even more satisfying is achieving that success using young, homegrown players.
Alan Hansen once said ‘You win nothing with kids’ but that Manchester United class of 1996 went on to prove him dramatically wrong. Those players, the likes of Giggs, Beckham and Scholes made up a vast proportion of the first team for many of the Premier League seasons and United will still rely on Giggs and Scholes this season for experience in the midfield. Hopefully other teams will start to promote talented youngsters into their first teams this season and give the youngsters a chance to show what they can do. We’ve picked out 15 talented young Premier League starlets who are ready to make their breakthroughs this season.
