888sports ‘The Eye Test’: Breakthrough players of the Premier League season

Over the course of a season the Premier League will often find itself new and emerging talents that justify the preseason hype and expectation. 

Host Rory Jennings along with Steve McInerney, Ade Oladipo and Flex discuss which up-and-coming players have impressed them the most this season. 

McInerney shouts out Crystal Palace duo Conor Gallagher and Tyrick Mitchell as key performers for Palace this season. The conversation surrounding Gallagher picked up when Oladipo mentioned that Gallagher may end up replacing Mason Mount in the starting lineup for England. 

A duo from Arsenal are also mentioned by Flex, Gabriel Martinelli and Emile Smith-Rowe. Both have shone when starting for the Gunners, with Smith-Rowe doubling his goals and assists tally from last season, going from 6 to 12. 

There was also time to tease Manchester United fan Flex with a dubious shout for Jadon Sancho, despite eventually all of the panel agreeing Sancho is already an established player putting in world class performances in the Bundesliga prior to an underwhelming debut season in the Premier League.
