Being a little footballer doesn’t necessarily mean you can’t make a large impact in the Premier League; quite the opposite in fact. As modern football has progressed, we have seen a greater emphasis placed on technical skill and trickery with the likes of Arsenal’s Santi Cazorla and Liverpool’s Luis Suarez proving that nimble footwork and speed can indeed yield a large impact on certain games, periods and the season at large.
Chelsea’s mercurial summer arrival Eden Hazard who stands at just 5 ft 7 in also represents the new breed of little guys heeding a large impact in the English top flight and the Belgian has proved that balance and grace provides more than a match for most Premier League defences to handle.
So this one’s for the little guys – those tiny talents who have stood up to the test despite their slender dimensions and proved crucial to their side’s fortunes in the 2012/13 Premier League campaign.
