5 Promoted Premier League Players To Watch Out For Next Season

For the forthcoming Premier League 2023–24 season, the teams of Burnley, Sheffield United, and Luton Town will replace recently relegated Southampton, Leeds United, and Leicester City. Fans of the promoted teams will be aware of their team's finest players, but supporters of other teams might not. This article will look at the players from the promoted teams to watch out for this year.

5. Carlton Morris

At the time of writing this article it's being highly reported by media outlets that former Manchester United player Tahith Chong could join the hatters for around £4 million from Birmingham City, but he has not officially joined just yet so he will be left out of this list. With 20 goals for the playoff winners last season Carlton Morris is one to look out for next season. Joining from Barnsley last season for a club record fee of almost £2 million. Current manager Edwards had this to say which sums up Morris's game completely

"His goals were influential last season, but whenever I spoke about him or was asked about him, it was his all-round game and what he brought to the team, whether it was hold-up play, work-rate, headers, defensive headers in his own box from corners.

"It was everything that he gave the team, as well as the goal threat. He's got great experience now, but he's a good age, someone who is really hungry, and he deserves the opportunity now to have a go in the Premier League."

4. Oli McBurnie

McBurnie will be eager to contribute in the premier league, assuming he stays with the club.

The forward has had trouble maintaining consistency at this level thus far in his career, contributing to just nine direct goals in 75 Premier League games.

The Scotsman did manage to score an excellent total of 15 goals in all competitions during the 2022–23 season, but in order to help the Blades get off to a good start in the new season, he will need to step up his game later this year.

The Leeds born striker recently claimed that the Yorkshire based club have "unfinished business" in the Premier League following their disappointing relegation in 2021.

3. Josh Brownhill

Burnley's playing style evolved since Vincent Kompany took over as head coach last season.

The Belgians possession based style of play compliments a player like Brownhill allowing the midfielder to string passes together and get further up the pitch to contribute with goals and assists. 

The central midfielder last season had 15 goal involvements, eight assists, and seven goals, which was more than any other player at the club.

With the Cheshire based midfielders new role which allows the player to express himself a lot more than the previous managers style of play, I believe many Premier League sides midfield will struggle to keep up with his intensity.

2. Anel Ahmedhodzic 

Paul Heckingbottom's team kept a clean sheet in 16 of the 32 league games Ahmedhodzic started, and the 24-year-old scored six league goals for Yorkshire this season, an excellent showing for a center-back. 

In the summer of 2022, United acquired the services of Bosnian international Ahmedhodi from Swedish club Malmo for a substantial, undisclosed amount.

An athletic yet strong defender, Ahmedhodi arrived at Bramall Lane after making an impression in France with Bordeaux during the previous season. He is already a regular for his country.

1. Manuel Benson

The Belgian winger is eager to test himself for the first time in the Premier League after playing a crucial role in Burnley's Championship title victory last season.

The tricky winger scored a total of 13 goals in the league, most notably the goal that sealed the league title against fierce rivals Blackburn Rovers at Ewood Park.

The 25 year olds wand of a left foot will be very difficult for teams to handle.

"He's a one versus one threat, it's harder to make low blocks when you have someone like him," boss Vincent Kompany told BBC Radio Lancashire.

"He can do that, he's got a final-third goal threat and he's got some pace which we needed to add to the team."
