We have gathered the top 5 Premier League players that you should keep an eye on in the forthcoming season. In no time, the 2023/24 Premier League season will arrive, bringing with it the usual inquiries that dominate discussions. Among these questions, one that frequently arises is: “Which teams or players will provide the most unexpected outcomes in the season?”

It is extremely challenging to predict before a match begins and, of course, it necessitates some clarification on what constitutes a ‘surprise’. 

Undoubtedly, players such as Kevin De Bruyne, Mohamed Salah, and Harry Kane will attract more attention than others – they have a proven track record and are among the best players in the sport.

However, in this article, we highlight five up-and-coming stars in the league, those who may not immediately catch the eye but whom we anticipate will exceed expectations and achieve greater success in the upcoming season.

Here are the top 5 Premier League players to look out for

5. Bryan Mbeumo (Brentford)

Last season, Mbeumo, along with Ivan Toney and Yoane Wissa, proved to be a formidable player in the Premier League, scoring nine goals and providing eight assists. Despite being with Brentford since before their promotion from the Championship two years ago, the 23-year-old Cameroon international reached new heights in the just ended season.

Toney frequently grabbed attention in the previous season, but Mbeumo consistently delivered strong performances week after week, excelling in both creating and finishing plays. Considering the Bees’ consistent improvement over the years, it is reasonable to anticipate that their No. 19 will be a standout performer.

4. Eberechi Eze (Crystal Palace)

It may not come as a surprise to find Eze included in this list, but the talented English player is often overlooked in the Premier League. Despite already being recognized for his skill as a winger and threat as an attacker, there is a belief that he has even more potential than what has been showcased so far in the top division.

Eze had an impressive season with 10 goals and four assists, standing out as one of the league’s top performers despite playing for a relatively average Palace team. With manager Roy Hodgson guiding him, the 24-year-old had his most successful season yet, and there is potential for even more success, especially with the transition of leadership from Wilfried Zaha being almost complete.

3. Jacob Ramsey (Aston Villa)

Ramsey, who is only 22 years old, has been performing consistently well in the Premier League for two seasons. This is particularly impressive considering his young age. In the previous season, he scored six goals and provided seven assists in the league, and if he continues to progress at Aston Villa, he can expect to be called up to the England national team, similar to Eze.

Aston Villa had a relatively successful season in 2022/23, recovering from a difficult period under Steven Gerrard’s management. It is a testament to Ramsey’s character that despite a slow start, a change in management, and an injury, he was able to score five of his six goals and go on an impressive run of form.

2. Cody Gakpo (Liverpool)

It may be surprising to include a player from Liverpool in this list, but the team had a disappointing season and needs to recover. Analyzing the statistics, it becomes clear that Liverpool started performing better after the World Cup break, but some experts may have focused on the wrong forward player. Gakpo made a strong impression on the global stage, scoring three goals and gaining attention.

Although Darwin Nunez has a more prominent reputation, Gakpo’s performance last season for Liverpool, with seven goals and two assists in 13 league starts, should not be overlooked. As we enter the 2023/24 season, it would be wise to pay attention to Gakpo, possibly even more so than his teammate Nunez and any potential summer signings.

1. Evan Ferguson (Brighton)

Ferguson is somewhat of an unpredictable choice. Those who are familiar with him know that he is a talented player, but it is uncertain if he will be able to replace Danny Welbeck as a regular starter. The 18-year-old has proven himself as a strong contender for Brighton’s forward position, scoring six goals in 19 matches last season. However, he may still need some time to fully settle in. Nevertheless, whenever Ferguson is given the opportunity to play in the upcoming season, it is likely that he will pose a threat to the opposing team’s goal and surprise those who underestimate him.
