17th September 3pm – Hull City vs Arsenal

Player To Watch:
Alexis Sanchez – A pretty mild 2015/16 Premier League season, but the 27 year old is now very much at the peak the age for a footballer and so I fully expect a much more productive season for the Chile star.

17th September 3:00pm – Man City vs Bournemouth

Player To Watch:
Callum Wilson – Callum Wilson looked top class at the start of the 2015/16 season, but was cruelly side lined with injury for the majority of the season. Wilson is now back to full fitness on the back of signing a new four year contract and is likely to improve this season.

10th September 3:00pm – Burnley vs Hull City
17th September 3:00pm – Leicester City vs Burnley

Player To Watch:
Johann Berg Gudmundsson – The powerful Icelandic winger will be pivotal to Burnley’s chances of staying in the Premier League. Hopefully for Burnley, Gudmundsson produces the form he displayed during Euro 2016 rather than during Charlton’s relegation to League 1 last season.

27th August 3:00pm – Chelsea vs Burnley
11th September 4:00pm – Swansea vs Chelsea
16th September 8:00pm – Chelsea vs Liverpool

Player To Watch:
N’Golo Kante – N’Golo Kante was virtually as good as two men last season for Leicester City and exactly the sort of player Chelsea needed given their woes last season. Kante’s running power and tenacity will give more opportunity to Chelsea’s more creative and flair players to shine this season.

27th August 3:00pm – Crystal Palace vs Bournemouth
10th September 3:00pm – Middlesbrough vs Crystal Palace
18th September 2:15pm – Crystal Palace vs Stoke

Player To Watch:
Andros Townsend – Andros Townsend is likely to get a good run of games for Crystal Palace, and if he can capitalise on his form at the end of last season with Newcastle United, Palace just might have unearthed absolute gem to add to a collection of speedy wingers at Selhurst Park.

27th August 3:00pm – Everton vs Stoke
12th September 8:00pm – Sunderland vs Everton
17th September 5:30pm – Everton vs Middlesbrough

Player To Watch:
Ross Barkley – Ross Barkley has been threatening to make a big breakthrough, but has been far too inconsistent over the last few seasons to be considered a top class player. I think Koeman will be good for Barkley’s football development, and Barkely, at 22 is just at the right age to be moulded by the talented Dutch manager.

10th September 3:00pm – Burnley vs Hull City
17th September 3:00pm – Hull City vs Arsenal

Player To Watch:
Abel Hernandez – Abel Hernandez is Hull City’s main source of goal threat (which really does say it all!). Given the lack of signings expectations will be resting on the Uruguayan to perform better than his last Premier League campaign, during which he scored just four goals.

17th September 3:00pm – Leicester City vs Burnley

Player To Watch:
Riyad Mahrez –Riyad Mahrez was without doubt the stand out player in the Premier League last season, deservedly picking up the PFA Player of Year award. Mahrez possesses a turn of foot and touch which contributed directly towards 28 goals in the Premier League last season. Leicester city will rely heavily on the talented Algerian if they are to have any chance of getting close to last season’s exploits.

16th September 3:00pm – Liverpool vs Hull City

Player To Watch:
Sadio Mane – Liverpool’s biggest transfer buy of the summer, Sadio Mane has undoubted potential and talent. Not only does Mane possess blistering pace, flair and skill, but also has a knack for scoring against top teams. The question mark remains, whether Sadio Mane can consistently perform over a whole season!?

17th September 15:00 Man City vs Bournemouth

Player To Watch:
Leroy Sane – Man City purchase of the Budesliga golden boy could be a brilliant piece of summer transfer business. The young German is a genuinely exciting talent, with red hot pace and an eye for goal. Pep knows all about Sane’s ability, and I have no doubt Sane will improve the City team. Sane will add speed, power and pace to a City team who needed freshening up from a disappointing campaign last season.

Player To Watch:
Anthony Martial – Martial came of age towards the end of last season, with some impressive performances in what was a generally a disappointing season for Manchester United fans. Martial had a better than goal every three games in the league ratio, which I fancy him to improve this season. With the likes of Zlatan and Rooney to learn from, young Martial can only get better.

17th September 17:30 Everton vs Middlesbrough

Player To Watch:
Jordan Rhodes – Jordan Rhodes is undoubtedly a prolific striker in England’s lower leagues, having amassed 137 goals in five years. The big question is whether Jordan Rhodes can cut it at Premier League level? A lot will depend on service from a Boro side who have been heavily criticised from their overly defensive approach, however if Jordan Rhodes can get off the mark early he might just surprise a few pundits and fans.

Player To Watch:
Jay Rodriguez – Jay Rodriquez has had virtually the last two years off with injury, however with a good pre-season behind him  things are looking brighter for the 27 year old former Burnley player. The timing couldn’t be better, with Pelle and Mane having left the club, Southampton could do with a fully fit Rodrgiquez firing in 15-20 goals this season.

Player To Watch:
Xherdan Shaqiri – The Swiss maestro demonstrated his quality at Euro 2016 by scoring a stunning overhead bicycle kick against Poland during their second round match. Shaqiri demonstrated glimpses of his talent last year, but it was all too infrequent. This time round, expectations will be higher, and so they should be!

Player To Watch:
Patrick van Aanholt – An impressive 2015/16 Premier league campaign for the adventurous Sunderland left back, featuring goals, assists and some solid defensive displays spearheading the Black Cats to eventual safety. The 25 year old Dutchman appears to found a home at the Stadium of Light, after years of being on the periphery of first team football. The only downside for Sunderland is that more impressive displays from Van Aanholt may awaken interest from bigger clubs.

Player To Watch:
Gylfi Sigurdsson – Gylfi Sigurdsson showed his class recently during Euro 2016, and is consistently dependable for club and country. There isn’t much the Icelandic talisman can’t do on a football pitch, and Swansea will rely heavily on his goals and assists this season. The only concern will be, will other managers notice it too, and try to lure Sigurdsson away from the Liberty Stadium.

Player To Watch:
Dele Alli – Dele Alli will have a point to prove after a disappointing Euro 2016 campaign with England, during which we didn’t really see the Premier League Alli. This season Alli may find it more difficult, as more players work out the young Englishman’s game. Alli has bags of potential, but can he push on again this season?

Player To Watch:
Odion Ighalo – Ighalo had an amazing first half of last season, but his form dropped off in the second half of the season dramatically, with just two goals in the second half of the season. Ighalo has the attributes to be a top Premier League striker, but this season could be more about whether he has ability to apply himself for a club which is undergoing yet another change of management. Ighalo may shine again, but the change and insecurity at Watford do him any favours.

Player To Watch:
Salomon Rondon – Salomon Rondon grew in confidence the longer last season went on, and I fully believe Rondon can improve on his tally of 9 goals in 2015/16. Rondon has size, strength, power, pace and an ability to find the net, but West Brom are not a club known for creating loads of chances. Rondon is likely to be key to West Brom’s chances of survival and if he can build on last season, might just shock a few people.

Player To Watch:
Dimitri Payet – Payet had a fabulous first season with West Ham last season, and he cemented his reputation with a strong Euro 2016 performance for France. Payet managed 9 league goals and 12 league assists, and it would be a brave man to bet against Dimitri Payet improving on that this season.
