Young players in the Premier League have to discover their ability while playing in the best and most popular club competition in the world.
Perhaps it is because of this reason that every year, some of the most exciting footballers in the world emerge from the English championship.
Here are some of the players that have impressed us in recent months. I believe that their performances in 2023 will also be worthy of praise. Fantasy football managers will likely be rewarded for paying attention to them.
Alejandro Garnacho (Manchester United)
We start the list with Alejandro Garnacho, an Argentinian winger who is still only 18 years old. Garnacho signed for Manchester United in 2020 from Atletico Madrid’s youth academy.
Touted as a potential breakout star, Garnacho has made 11 appearances for United at the senior level over the past year. He’s scored one goal in the process, an important one against Real Sociedad in the Europa League.
Erik Ten Hag has lauded Garnacho’s commitment. Even though he will need to battle for a starting spot against the likes of Antony, Marcus Rashford, and Jadon Sancho, the South American’s potential is undeniable.
Fabio Carvalho (Liverpool)
Liverpool acquired Fabio Carvalho from Fulham for just under £5 million. The Reds were clear about their belief that they’d signed one of the most promising young midfielders active in England.
Carvalho’s bright start to his Liverpool career has seen him score twice in just 12 games. That’s a fantastic start which makes some fans tout him as a future club legend.
Still, the club’s disappointing 2022/23 season has put a damper on celebrations of any kind. Liverpool’s poor form and numerous injuries may turn out to be a blessing for the youngster, though, as he is likely to receive more opportunities to start for Jurgen Klopp’s side.
Julian Alvarez (Manchester City)
Julian Alvarez is a rare talent that is only beginning to leave his mark on the Premier League. Confidence about his potential has rocketed after the Argentinian’s World Cup-winning performances in Qatar.
His career didn’t exactly get off to a slow start. Alvarez scored twice in his Etihad debut season. He was signed in January 2022, and many fans hoped that he would emulate fellow Argentine Sergio Aguero.
Alvarez still needs to develop, and yes, he often acts as an understudy to Erling Haaland. Immense potential is, however clearly available.
Moises Caicedo (Brighton)
Caicedo has had a tremendous season for Brighton. This has led both Arsenal and Chelsea to desperately try and force a transfer during the winter window.
Just how much do the Seagulls prize the young midfielder? Apparently, much more than the reported £55m that Arsenal was keen to pay for the player.
Caicedo is seen as something of a lucky omen. With him starting most matches, Brighton managed results that see them sit in sixth place in the EPL standings.
Memorable performances against Manchester United and Liverpool have made the top clubs pay notice.
It just remains to be seen how Caicedo, now 21 years old, will manage the disappointment of not earning a transfer to one of these clubs this winter.
Tino Livramento (Southampton)
Livramento was one of the most talked about Premier League full-backs before his serious injury back in April. This required surgery.
Even though this has paused Livramento’s progress for now, most pundits agree in calling him one of the best young players in the Premier league.
His pace, determination, and ability in the final third could be crucial in helping Southampton retain their place in the EPL.
Still, if he keeps performing as he did in the past, battle relegations are unlikely to be things with which he will be concerned.
