Premier League 2020-21: Youngsters who could have maximum influence
The Premier League 2020-21 season starts on Saturday with several young players eager to play a defining role. The Premier League squads have players who are capable of carving an identity for themselves and taking the game to a next level. Last season we saw several youngsters coming through and impressing largely. This season will be no different. Here's more.
Saka can be influential for Arsenal
19-year-old Bukayo Saka earned a PFA Young Player of the Year nomination after an impressive 2019-20 campaign. Saka must build on that breakthrough first season by cementing his place in Mikel Arteta's side. He can both as a winger and at left-back. He showed his capabilities in the FA Community Shield as well. He scored once and made five assists last season in EPL.
Phil Foden tipped to fill in Silva's shoes
Phil Foden has the perfect opportunity to set the bar high in the upcoming season. He has been touted to fill in the void left by David Silva. Foden showed last season that he can be trusted by Pep Guardiola and made an impact. The England international made 23 league appearances for City last season, scoring five goals and providing two assists.
Mason Greenwood must build from the experience of last season
Mason Greenwood's success story was the pick of the 2019-20 season. The teenager made 31 league appearances for Manchester United last term and scored 10 goals. Greenwood is lethal with either foot and has drawn praise from every corner. He has established himself in the starting XI, however, he needs to build on the show this season. United will want him to score goals.
Curtis Jones could get more chances at Liverpool
Liverpool's Curtis Jones made his Premier League debut last season. He made six appearances and scored one goal. The 19-year-old mid-fielder's energy and quality in possession will be ideal fit for Jurgen Klopp's high tempo game-plan. One expects Klopp to provide Jones with more opportunities.
