Adam Idah (Norwich City): Idah has grown in leaps and bounds since joining Norwich City as an academy scholar in 2017 and is regarded as the most talented marksman in the club’s youth set up.

Last season, Idah who has played for the youth teams of Ireland, his mother’s country, scored 12 league goals for the club’s U-23s, earning himself a promotion to the senior side and has already made his debut in a league cup game this term.

He has made the match day squad for Daniel Farke’s team three times this season and could yet be drafted into the squad that will tackle Manchester United on Sunday.

Faustino Anjorin (Chelsea): Another youngster who has seen his stock rise continuously this year, Anjorin has seen Frank Lampard’s trust in youth push him into prominence.

The midfielder, though yet to be included in a match day squad for Chelsea, has enjoyed his senior debut in a big victory in the League Cup.

He has been a star performer for the club’s youth teams this season and it won’t be long before we get to see him in the top flight.

Tom Dele-Bashiru (Watford): The former Manchester City wonder kid has had to bide his time in new surroundings, but is surely one to watch out for in no distant time.

Tom earned his senior bow for the Hornets in a League Cup game versus Coventry City and is viewed as a player with some potentials to produce on a more consistent basis.

Will Quique Sanchez Flores decide to hand the former Flying Eagles star some playing time soon, particularly with the team lacking some needed creativity in the final third and battling to avoid the drop?
