A lot of players have come to the Premier League this season and have made a positive impact on their club’s season so far, but what signings have made an instant impact in their first few games? Below we’ll have a look at five of the best signings so far this season.
1. Sadio Mane
Sadio Mane has already given Liverpool the attacking mentality Jurgen Klopp wanted this season, and he has been a player that has made an instant impact and has shown consistent performances for Liverpool since. He already had Premier League experience with Southampton last season so he already knew how tough the league was, and he has ultimately given Liverpool hope of winning the title this season thanks to some of his individual performances.
2. N’Golo Kante
You could say that N’Golo Kante is the lucky charm in the Premier League as he has not only helped Chelsea to become league leaders in the season so far, but he also helped Leicester win the league last season to surprise the whole footballing world. He has many skills and is one of the quick paced players Chelsea relies on to create chances for Diego Costa and Eden Hazard. If Kante can go on and help Antonia Conte’s men win the league this season, then he will be the first player to win the Premier League for two seasons in a row with two different clubs.
3. Zlatan Ibrahimović
Zlatan Ibrahimović made a quick start to life in the Premier League when scoring on his debut, and has since scored plenty of goals which has put him in contention of winning the golden boot this season, so long as he can keep up the pace with the likes of Sergio Aguero and Diego Costa. Jose Mourinho has worked with Zlatan before so he knows he has the quality to help put Manchester United in with a chance of a top 4 finish again for Champions League football next season.
Not only has Ibrahimović scored a lot of goals already for Manchester United, but he has also bought a lot of experience into the dressing room and is already the go to player when younger players are looking for advice. He has been a good role model for the likes of Marcus Rashford and Anthony Martial to help develop their careers. If you think Zlatan has the quality to go on and win the golden boot this season, why not have a bet on him and take advantage of the many offers on Free Bets websites?
4. Marcos Alonso
Many fans weren’t too keen on Antonio Conte bringing Marcos Alonso to Stamford Bridge, given the fact he only managed to get into teams such as Sunderland and Bolton when he was in the Premier League last time out. But since he has been a big figure in Fiorentina’s side last season, Conte thought he would be an asset to the 3-4-3 formation he wanted to adopt with his squad, and he has proven to be one of the best buys of the season so far.
5. Idrissa Gueye
Idrissa has made an impressive start for Everton this season and he has helped them to a league position where they are able to compete for the Europa League place. Everton have always been a competitive side in the Premier League, but players like Idrissa Gueye have come in and made an instant impact that has made Everton one of the teams to beat this season.
The above are just five of the players that have made an instant impact to life in the Premier League to help their clubs remain competitive. There are of course many other players that have taken time to adapt to the physicality of the Premier League, and you could even look at Paul Pogba, Henrikh Mkhitaryan, and Victor Wanyama who have also made impacts for their clubs.
