Pre-season is over. The real business begins today as the Premier League returns. (Praise the Lord!)
Who is entering the new campaign in form? Here, fanatix picks out the top eight pre-season performers:
8. Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain (Arsenal)
The Arsenal winger scored a cracker in the Emirates Cup thrashing of Lyon, and a worthy winner against Chelsea in the Community Shield. This is a big season for the 21-year-old and he seems ready for it.
7. Patrick Bamford (Crystal Palace)
The youngster has wasted little time settling in at Crystal Palace after joining on loan from Chelsea. He scored a hat-trick as the Eagles thumped Bromley 6-0, and there are sure to be more goals to come.
