The EPL has long had a history of providing some of the best young players in the game. Sometimes, these are imported stars. However, there’s currently a new golden generation of young ENGLISH stars. This sets up the national team for a bright future. Some of these guys can’t even get a game for the national side these days, and they look set to shine in the EPL for the next decade or so.
So if you’re lining up some bets to use with your Librabet bonus, then check out who you might want to put your money on over the next few years as some of the best young English players in the game…
Grealish pleased many and annoyed some when he announced he’d play for England over Ireland, but he has struggled to make an impact into the national lineup as of yet. Surely a few starts aren’t far away, as he has been one of the brightest talents in the league this season, not just the brightest young talents. Grealish is an attacking midfielder and the main focus of Aston Villa’s front line for both goals and assists. Almost everything goes through him and he’s also the club captain at such a young age.
James Maddison has impressed many this season, and is also one of the best players in the league right now. Supplying Jamie Vardy, he’s helped propel Leicester way into the Champions League qualification spots. The problem for Maddison and Grealish is they both play in roughly the same position. Can Southgate squeeze them both onto the pitch at the same time? That remains to be seen. Could this be the Lampard/Gerrard rivalry of the next decade or so?
Many people thought Chelsea would struggle to score goals following their transfer ban this season, but that hasn’t really been the case. A lot of that is thanks to Abraham, who’s impressed and surprised many this season. Wit Harry Kane’s injury worries and Vardy’s retirement, Abraham could be leading the line for England at the Euros this year. Even if he isn’t, he’s surely got a bright future ahead.
Another contender to play up front for England in the Euros is Marcus Rashforod, but he’s also had recent injury struggles. It’s amazing how young Rashford is, because he’s been a crucial player for Man Utd for some time now. Rashford is another top English talent who could have a decade or more at the top ahead of him.
Another Man Utd academy product is Mason Greenwood. He’s a bit younger than the rest and maybe slightly further away from the senior England set up. However, his talent is indisputable and he could be an outside choice if he can get a few more games in. Greenwood has impressed many already this season with only a few starts to his name. With Rashford’s recent injury troubles and Martial’s patchy form, Man Utd might become even more reliant on him.
Phil Foden is perhaps one of the brightest young talents in the country, and has recent plaudits from boss Guardiola repeatedly. However, he has struggled for game time because of how much strength in depth City have. Will he need to move in order to get the development time he needs? Maybe a loan deal could be necessary. If Foden can get the game time, he should be straight into the England lineup.
England has so many young talents it’s hard to list them all here. But these are some of the best. Who do you think will be in the starting lineup come the Euros?
