Five players who may well surprise you, in a positive way, during the 23rd edition of the Premier League.
Fabio Borini – Liverpool
Borini looked in danger of becoming the forgotten man when Liverpool signed Rickie Lambert last month.
Since signing for the Reds two years ago, Borini has scored just two goals in 20 first-team appearances for the Anfield club, though that record reflects slightly harshly on the 23-year-old because he only started in half of those games.
He spent last season on loan at Sunderland, where he eventually flourished after a difficult start, scoring four goals in his last five matches and helping the Black Cats beat the odds to avoid relegation.
Borini should return to Liverpool full of confidence and, with star man Luis Suarez banned until late October and perhaps even heading for an exit, the Italian should get chances to impress.
