The 2019/20 Premier League season is almost upon us and talkSPORT will bring you more live football than ever before.
It’s the greatest league in the world and to celebrate its return, we have compiled a list of the 20 players we expect to shine the most in the upcoming campaign.
A team of talkSPORT experts have offered insight, numbers have been crunched and one player will be revealed every working day – with the winner of talkSPORT’s Premier League Power Rankings announced on Friday, August 9, before Liverpool kick-off the new season against Norwich City.
17. TRENT ALEXANDER-ARNOLD – LIVERPOOL
Last season was a breakthrough campaign for Alexander-Arnold, where he went from top talent at the start of the season, to be recognised as one of the best full backs in the world.
His 12 assists in the Premier League was the highest amount ever recorded by a defender in the top flight, and summed up the immense impact he had.
Alexander-Arnold has everything required in a modern full-back and is taking on more responsibility all the time and clearly thriving with it, being Liverpool’s set piece man and playing well in all the big games.
All young players usually have a dip in form at some point, but talkSPORT expects next season he’ll push his standards even higher, cementing his place as the best right back in the world.
He still has a bit of work to do on his defending, but at just 20, the sky is the limit.
