Premier League 2014: Can the New Stars Bring Back Success?

Premier League 2014 Can the New Stars Bring Back Success

The Premier League has made a significant jump in quality after the latest transfer window. Questions have been raised about the league’s ability to attract the top players.

It was only a few years ago that the league had representatives in the latter stages of the Champions League on a consistent basis. Spain and Germany has moved ahead in this regard by providing three winners in the last four seasons, which is significantly better than England’s one Champions League winner since the 2008-09 season.

Thanks to a new massive £3 billion deal for the Premier League, clubs like Manchester City, Chelsea, Manchester United, Arsenal and Liverpool have been able to bring several stars this time around. The first few weeks of the league campaign has shown that some of the new names could be potential stars for the next few years. They make for a good signing in the upcoming Football Manager 2015 game.

Diego Costa – Chelsea

The Brazil-born Spanish international was signed by Chelsea for £32 million from Atletico Madrid after effectively one good season with the Spanish club. However, it was an extraordinary season after Costa’s goals almost single-handedly helped Atletico win the la Liga and come within a few seconds of lifting the Champions League as well. A poor World Cup with Spain raised concerns that Costa may not be much better than Fernando Torres or Demba Ba.

The 25-year-old has allayed those fears in stunning fashion after scoring seven goals in the opening five league matches. These goals have just been the tip of the iceberg, as the striker has shown tremendous appetite for working hard in the defensive area. Costa has already formed a great relationship with Cesc Fabregas and he would be a great buy in the Football Manager 2015.

Angel di Maria – Manchester United

Manchester United have been talking a lot for more than 12 months about breaking transfer records once again. Few would have imagined it would have come in stunning fashion just before the close of the transfer window. United brought in Angel di Maria for £59.7 million and it broke the previous transfer record held by Fernando Torres after his £50 million move to Chelsea. Interestingly, this was the first time United had broken the British transfer record since 2002 when they signed Rio Ferdinand.

Di Maria, though, comes to a team that is going through a minefield of problems. They have made a very poor start to the season under new boss Louis Van Gaal, but the 26-year-old has already shown that he has the capability to single-handedly light up a match. He has already contributed close to 50% of United’s league goals and it should not be forgotten that he has only been playing for the Red Devils since the 0-0 draw with Burnley.

Cesc Fabregas – Chelsea

It was a surprise that Arsenal decided against bringing Cesc Fabregas back to the Emirates stadium considering the status of the Spaniard. The decision looks even dafter considering that Fabregas was available at just under £30 million, which is around £5 million less than what Barcelona paid for him in 2011. The experience of playing eight years in the Premier League ensured that Fabregas needed no time to settle in his new surroundings at West London.

His relationship with Diego Costa prior to the move to Chelsea may have been limited to a couple of matches with the Spanish national team, but the duo seem close to forming a deadly partnership. Fabregas sits top of the assist charts with six and he has taken a lot of burden away from Eden Hazard. It is not surprising that Betfair offers even odds for Costa finishing as the Premier League’s top scorer. He is closely followed by Sergio Aguero with odds of 5/1.

These three players have the capability to once again take English football back to the top.
