The 2021-2022 season in England is right around the corner. As any new year, three new clubs that went up from the Championship will play in the Premier League, this time Norwich, Watford and Brentford. Let’s introduce you to each of them along with their most important player.
Daniel Farke’s team went down in the 2019-2020 campaign and now they have been able to return right away after winning the Championship. Max Aaron’s, Todd Cantwell and EMI Buendía have been the most responsible players for this achievement. It is not something unknown that their level was above the category, which is the reason why they will more than likely leave the club in this transfer market.
In fact, Buendía has already signed for Aston Villa. However, Delia Smith has taken care of looking for a guaranteed replacement: Milot Rashica (25 years old). The Kosovar striker, who shined in the Bundesliga, can play anywhere forward and stands out at dribbling and offensive production. His addition is a great incentive to keep an eye on the ‘Canaries’.
Just like Norwich, the ‘Hornets’ went down to the Championship in the 2019-2020 season and now have gone up against finishing second on the table. Xisco Muñoz, who became in charge in December 2020, is the leader of Watford. Despite his short experience as a head coach, his outcomes prove that his job is efficient.
The Premier will be a huge challenge for the Spanish and he will count on João Pedro (19 years old) to help him throughout the way. The Brazilian scored 9 goals and gave 3 assists in 40 games last season. At ELXIIDEAL we offered you an analysis of this young promise that will now have the spotlights on him after a year of growth in the Championship.
The club from London returns to the top category in England 74 years later, which means that this will be their first experience in the Premier League. This is one of the most interesting projects in the last few years, as they rely on young talent and an attractive playing style. Thomas Frank is in charge, who almost went up in the 19-20 campaign, but he fell in the Play-Offs final against Fulham.
Ivan Toney (25 years old) is one of their pillars and maybe the most important one. The Englishman was earned the Golden Boot Award in the Championship with 30 goals and has managed to explode after an irregular career and multiple loans on his time at Newcastle. This way, he now has a huge opportunity ahead of him to prove his potential in the first division.
