Saturday saw the long awaited commencement of the 2015/16 Premier League season with one of the most entertaining transfer windows in a while continuing. The league saw débutantes across the weekend with some outstanding performances from some of the new faces in the top flight. Some youth players were tested by sides, these are the personnel Lost Culture will keep an eye out for this season;
Reece Oxford, 16, received man-of-the-match as West Ham defeated Arsenal 2-0 in a frustrating match. Marking Mesut Ozil, Oxford received a fanfare on social media with torment towards the German superstar.
Joe Gomez, 18, signed this summer for £5m and tipped by MOTD pundit Mark Lawrenson a one of Liverpool’s best talents for this season Gomez provided the assist for Coutinho’s stunner in their victory against Stoke City.
Raheem Sterling, 20, Manchester City débutante enjoyed a comfortable victory in the sky blue as City thrashed West Brom 3-0. Too early to assess what impact the ex-Liverpool player will have.
Jordan Ibe, 19, Spent most of the match on the pitch. Said to be the new Sterling for Livepool it is too early to mould an opinion on the player and what he can do for his club this season.
Memphis Depay, 21, Dissapointing first match for the highly-rated Dutch international. It does not mean the rest of the season will carry suit as the he adapts into the top flight of English football.
Matt Targett, 19, Similar to Ibe’s comparison to Sterling, Targett is rated as the new Shaw. Finishing last season strongly he bagged 90mins on the weekend and looks to sustain his place in the team and have a good season.
Wilfried Zaha, 22, Nathan Redmond, 21, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, 21, Kurt Zouma, 20 and Dele Alli, 19, entertained short appearances on the pitch but expect solid seasons from the youngsters.
