The 3 Most Underrated Premier League Players This Season: Manchester United And Bournemouth Stars Feature

Victor Lindelof Has Impressed For Manchester United This Season
Victor Lindelof Has Impressed For Manchester United This Season

The Premier League is back this weekend and it can't come a moment too soon after another long international break and it is shaping up to be a thrilling end to the season at both ends of the table.

Liverpool and Manchester City are locked in a fantastic title race at one end of the division, while the relegation battle is looking similarly tight with a number of teams fighting to avoid Huddersfield and Fulham, who look doomed, in heading down to the second tier of English football.

We shouldn't also forget the race for the top four with Spurs, Chelsea, Man United and Arsenal all fighting it out for the final two spots in the Champions League and that means we have plenty to look forward to in the coming weeks.

Attention is now turning to individual awards with the likes of Raheem Sterling, Virgil Van Dijk and Sergio Aguero continuing to dominate the rumour mill when it comes to the player of the year trophy.

The gong will surely go to one of those three stars with Van Dijk the rightful winner at this stage but there are a host of other players who also deserve to be in the spotlight. The Sportsman loves an under dog and we have picked out three players who have slipped under the radar this season and can go into the most under rated player of the season category.

Josh King

The Bournemouth star often plays second fiddle to Callum Wilson down on the south coast but he continues to prove to be an extremely effective player at this level. The Norwegian International has been a consistent performer when Wilson has been on the injury table and 11 goals and three assists so far is an excellent return for a player who rarely gets the headlines. 

Victor Lindelof

Lindelof is starting to get the praise he deserves from the Man United fans but not beyond that which is something that needs to change. A key figure for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, the former Benfica has been an excellent presence in the heart of the United defence in recent weeks and months and so much so that it is him and one other in that Old Trafford back-line as things stand.

Aymeric Laporte

Man City are in pole position to win the Premier League and Laporte is one of the key reasons for that excellent form at the Etihad Stadium. The Frenchman took some time to settle in in England but he has been a consistent and classy presence in defence this season for Pep Guardiola and although he well recognised, it is about time he was widely elevated into the top tier of Premier League defenders.
