The English Premier League 2018-19 season is just 1 week away and with all the madness at the 2018 FIFA World Cup, football fanatics like me can’t wait for yet another edition of the most competitive league in the world.
There were plenty of positives for many English clubs as England managed to reach the semi-finals of the World Cup after a long 60-year waiting time.
The transfer market has already seen a number of surprising moves from some of the best stars of the game, much like most of the results at the World Cup. A number of shoes are yet to be filled with Real Madrid, who have sold arguably their best player ever in Cristiano Ronaldo to Juventus without any announcement of a replacement, as a number of Premier League clubs are at threat of losing some of their best players.
An exhilarating and record-breaking performance from Manchester City saw them lift the Premier League 2017-18 trophy who will be the team to beat this time around.
Stoke City, Swansea City and West Brom faced heart-breaking relegation to the 2nd division of English football with Wolves returning back to the Premier League as Championship winners after a 6-year exile. They will be accompanied by Fulham and Cardiff City who managed to qualify to the Premier League along with Wolves.
As these newly promoted sides will look to extend their stay in the top flight of English football, let’s take a look at the 5 key players from these teams to watch out for in the upcoming Premier League season:
#1 Andre Schurrle (Fulham FC)
#2 Jean Michael Seri (Fulham FC)
#3 Rui Patricio (Wolves FC)
#4 Joao Moutinho (Wolves FC)
#5 Ryan Sessegnon (Fulham FC)
