Three Premier League new boys to watch out this season

Posted by

In three weeks, Premier League 2019-20 will begin. Manchester City will be back to defend their title and Liverpool will be hopeful of putting another great title challenge. Tottenham and Manchester United are busy on the transfer front. They both are expected to make more signings before the window shuts down. Chelsea, on the other hand, with their transfer ban will still be able to welcome Pulisic from Dortmund whom they signed in January. Unai Emery’s Arsenal is also pushing for a couple of signings after having signed only one player so far this summer.

Although there haven’t been a large number of signings this summer, unlike the last season. We still have some Premier League newcomers that will excite the fans for sure. Here are three new Premier League to watch out this season: ​​

Christian Pulisic (Chelsea)

Chelsea was lucky to have completed this deal in January. As now they can’t sign any new players due to the transfer ban. They have also lost their star man Eden Hazard to Real Madrid. However, Christian Pulisic might prove to be the right man to replace the Belgian.

Pulisic was being chased by other European giants like Bayern Munich and Liverpool before Chelsea agreed to pay the asking price for the American. The winger had lost his place in Favre’s starting lineup and was willing to move to another club after a tough start to last season.

Pulisic played just 920 minutes of football for Dortmund last season in the Bundesliga. He got only 9 starts and scored 4 goals in an overall disappointing season for the wide playmaker. 

Daniel James (Man Utd)

Ole Gunnar Solksjaer has started his work of rebuilding Manchester United. His first signing in the process was Daniel James from Swansea. The 21-year-old had an excellent last season in the Championship. James is also known as “next Ryan Giggs” in Wales.

It will be a big transition for the young winger from Championship to Premier League. It will be interesting to see how he copes with this transition. His dribbling skills and through balls will surely keep United fans excited throughout the season.

He made 41 appearances last season and scored 6 goals. He also managed 7 assists and had an average rating of 7.

Tanguy NDombele (Tottenham)

The Lyon midfielder had been in demand this summer before Tottenham agreed to break the bank for him. NDombele comes in the Premier League with a big reputation after having a fabulous season in France.

He looks like a player who will suit Pochettino’s system at Spurs. He is a suitable replacement for Mousa Dembele as his game is quite similar to him. The Frenchman likes to dribble in the middle of the park and play some killer balls.

Last season NDombele made 45 appearances for Lyon. He had an average rating of 6.99 and pass success rate of 89%. The midfielder also contributed with 7 assists and 1 goal.
