Premier League

Best Championship Players, 7 Stars Destined To Reach The Top

Best Players within the Championship

I've picked out my seven stars to observe out for because the 2020/21 EFL Championship continues.

Adam Armstrong – Blackburn Rovers

The Rovers front seems like he’s been round the block forever given his regular loan spells within the EFL since becoming knowledgeable .

Remarkably, this ‘Championship veteran’ remains only 23 years aged , and surely deserves a crack at the Premier League at some stage given he’s hit double figures for the last two seasons during a row five years before his likely peak.

He may need to sneak a promotion with Tony Mowbray’s well organised Rovers first to urge his chance.

Arnaut Danjuma – Bournemouth

Premier League relegation can often be the making of a player. 23-year-old Dutch international Danjuma struggled to form his mark last season during a Cherries side more focused on firefighting as they battled to save lots of their Premier League status.

However, with relegation often providing the prospect for a serious reset, Danjuma appears to be flourishing under new boss Jason Tindall. The Nigerian born winger has already hit five goals in 11 games. A season within the Championship could toughen him up nicely should the Cherries regain top-flight status at the primary attempt.

Bryan Mbeumo – Brentford

The lethal BMW triumvirate could also be no more at Brentford, but the ‘M’ component remains firmly in situ .

Mbeumo has now been handed the prospect to steal the limelight that too often visited teammates Saïd Benrahma and Ollie Watkins last season, and therefore the Brentford strike rate of manufacturing top talent for the Premier League suggests the 21 year old are going to be subsequent one to step off the assembly line should the Bees falls short again within the 2020/21 Championship.

It’s been a low-key start for the Frenchman, but Brentford tend to kick on within the last half of campaigns. 2021 might be an enormous year for one among the Bees’ biggest assets.

Dael Fry – Middlesbrough

The arrival of second-tier promotion expert Neil Warnock at Boro towards the top of last season might just are the rocket boost Dael Fry must realise his Premier League dream.

Even together with his hometown club enduring a downturn in fortunes over recent seasons, 6ft 4in Fry has been a rock at the guts of the Boro defence.

With Warnock’s guidance, it shouldn’t be too long before he moves on to subsequent level with or without Boro. He could still do with adding a couple of more goals to his name given his size, and has yet to register one goal in his career. But otherwise? He’s got everything a Premier League and England manager could want and more.

Freddie Woodman – Swansea City

Given the cut-throat nature of the EFL Championship, it’s rare to ascertain clubs take an opportunity on young keepers. With the odd ‘keeper clanger’ often the difference between promotion and a play off or mid table consolidation and relegation, most Championship managers sensibly choose tried-and-tested names between the sticks.

Not Steve Cooper though. the britain U20 World Cup winner continues to trust in youth and Woodman already features a full Championship season and play-off campaign behind him – not an experience many 23-year-old keepers have in their locker at that stage of their careers.

Parent club Newcastle still seem reluctant to sell despite a healthy stock of keepers to turn suggesting they think Woodman could still press on further.

Ivan Toney – Brentford

They’ve done it again. Both Peterborough and Brentford, that is.

These two EFL clubs churn out 20+ goal-a-season strikers with an ease that evades numerous other clubs, and hitman Toney is now taking advantage of an education with both. He’s made a seamless transition to the second tier after an upscale spell ahead of goal with the luxury .

Toney has already bagged double figures goals for his new club, but will he finally be the person to spearhead the Bees to the Premier League?

Louie Sibley – Derby County

The 19-year-old Derby ace burst onto the scene with a flurry of goals at the top of the 2019/20 season and with time on his side he remains one to observe albeit his game time has been limited thus far this term thanks to injury.

Sibley has already grabbed a primary hat-trick for the club at Millwall last summer.The relegation-threatened Rams might got to fast-track him back to the primary team if their death spiral continues.
