Premier League or English Premier League has gone through 13 matches in this 2019/20 season. Liverpool are still firmly on top of the standings, eight points ahead of their closest rivals, Leicester City which is ranked 2nd. Of the 13 matches that have taken place, there have been many conclusions drawn by the public, not only Liverpool are considered as candidates for the championship at the end of the season, but also the record of the players in the Premier League as a whole.
There are those who are judged to look good, such as Sadio Mane, Mohamed Salah, and others. But there are also players who are considered to appear disappointing at the beginning of this season. There are at least three names, who are they?
1. Marcus Rashford
Previously, Marcus Rashford was known as one of the most promising talents in England. The 22-year-old figure emerged as a Manchester United future player since the Louis Van Gaal era. This season, he is believed to be one of the main spears of the Red Devils on the front lines, replacing the role of Romelu Lukaku who left last summer.
Of course, Rashford is expected to be able to look good, but the fact is concerned he appeared shining at the beginning of this season. He was considered unable to patch up the role of Lukaku, even harsh criticism had cast the legend of the club, Gary Neville to the player.
2. Nicolas Pepe
Arsenal spent very large funds, 74 million pounds to buy Nicolas Pepe from Lille in the transfer market last summer. That number makes it the most expensive recruitment in club history. So no wonder, there is great hope on the shoulders of the player. But the reality so far, Ivory Coast national team players have not shown their best performance.
In fact, from a total of 13 matches that have taken place, Nicolas Pepe has only recorded 1 goal, precisely in the 3-2 victory over Aston Villa.
3. Paul Pogba
Paul Pogba’s performance with Manchester United is also called a drastic decline. The French passport player who was injured was not semoncer when grazing with Juventus. His performance at the start of the season is still doubtful, despite the injury being faced by the midfielder. But apparently, Pogba did lose his passion for playing for Manchester United, because he had intended to leave since last summer.
