The international break is finally over and we can all get back to focusing on the Premier League once again. Find out 10 debuts to look out for in the Premier League this weekend
Saturday afternoon’s game between Manchester City and Liverpool is set to be a great clash and the added ingredient of Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain’s Liverpool debut, which is likely to come from the bench, only adds to the excitement.
Danny Drinkwater’s Chelsea debut, if he plays this weekend, will be against his former side Leicester City. After handing in a transfer request to force a move, it’ll be interesting to see what reception he gets from the fans inside the King Power Stadium.
Wilfried Bony, once of the of the league’s hottest strikers, has been somewhat of a non-factor for a few seasons. He’s now back at Swansea and should make his second debut at home to Newcastle on Sunday. Having sold Fernando Llorente (more on him later), the Swans need Bony to start finding the back of the net once again.
Mamadou Sakho, if fit, could make his second Crystal Palace debut against Burnely. Palace have had a really poor start to the season and will hope that the Frenchman can have the same instant impact as he did when he joined on loan last year.
One of the surprise moves of the window was PSG’s Grzegorz Krychowiak joining West Brom on loan. The Polish star should start the game against Brighton this weekend and Albion fans will be hoping to see the type of displays that earned him such a great reputation.
Fernando Llorente is unlikely to start for Spurs when they travel to Everton but the Spaniard is likely to make an appearance from the bench. He’s proven that he has an eye for goal in the Premier League and we wouldn’t put it past him to make a difference if he comes on late into the game.
Another move that shocked plenty of people was the arrival of Renato Sanches at Swansea on loan. The Portuguese star is one of the most highly touted young players in Europe and it’ll be fascinating to see if he can adapt to life in the Premier League.
It always felt like Kevin Wimmer was always the bridesmaid and never the bride at Spurs. He’s clearly a talented player but he couldn’t break into the Tottenham side due to players who were ahead of him in the pecking order. Now he gets the chance to prove himself at Stoke and if he can help keep a high-scoring Manchester United side quiet, that will be some debut!
Serge Aurier’s off-field issues have been the main talking points since it was announced that he’d be joining Tottenham but now it’s time for him to show what he can do on the field. Having paid over £20m for him, it’s likely that Spurs will start Aurier against Everton and there’ll be plenty of attention on him.
