Top 5 Players to watch in the Premier League on New Year’s Day


Bookmark and Share

By Stephen Donovan

Wednesday 01 January 2014

The Premier League is now past its midway point and it is still exceedingly hard to predict where each team will end up at the end. Here are the five players to look out for in the first round of games in 2014:


Santi Cazorla


Santi Cazorla


The tricky playmaker is one of the few Arsenal players who are fully-fit for the game against Cardiff City, so his influence will be all the more crucial for Arsene Wenger’s depleted side. Without Mesut Ozil, Olivier Giroud and Aaron Ramsey, maybe this will be the time for Cazorla to take centre stage.


Tom Huddlestone


His performance against Fulham was a culmination of what Huddlestone has been producing all season for Hull City, where has been given a new lease of life. After finally ending his goal drought on Saturday, his manager, Steve Bruce, suggested that he may be worthy of a place in the England World Cup squad. He will be looking to maintain his fine form at Liverpool.


Danny Welbeck


Danny Welbeck


At a time where Robin van Persie is injured and Wayne Rooney has been struggling for fitness, Welbeck has stepped up to the plate with four goals in four Premier League games, which is rare for him, having struggled to find the net often enough domestically. Tottenham’s attacking intentions may work in Manchester United’s favour, and could provide Welbeck with the chance to add to his recent tally.


Steven N’Zonzi


The former Blackburn Rovers player has a somewhat understated role in the heart of the Stoke City midfield, but he dies it very effectively. On Wednesday, he will be expecting a test, with Everton coming to the Britannia Stadium, and their midfield, which includes Gareth Barry and Ross Barkley, is very potent at present.


Ashley Cole


Ashley Cole


After several weeks of missing out on the action and being left on the bench, Cole must seize the chance that he will inevitably get due to Branislav Ivanovic’s injury. Kept out recently by the excellent Cesar Azpilicueta, Cole knows that he cannot put a foot wrong in a tough game at Southampton if he is to regain a regular place in the team.
