Scottish footballers in the English Premier League often go under the radar due to the array of talent that has flooded the league from abroad. There are, in fact, quite a few who have graced the division over recent times, with three making an impact just lately. The season may now be over, but each of the three players will be looking to make an even bigger impact in England’s top flight next season, and could we see even more Scottish talent head south over the course of the summer?
Robertson, 24, joined Liverpool from Hull City last summer and since then he has really come on leaps and bounds. He’s arguably been the best left back in the division this season, after making 22 appearances for Jurgen Klopp’s men, and he’s also starred in Europe too. Robertson has shown that he’s equally effective defensively, as he is offensively, and he possesses a wand of a left foot. He’s now become known for putting over some great crosses from the left and his energy is unbelievable. It would be great to see him make the team for the Champions League Final against Real Madrid.
It’s taken Ryan Fraser a while to establish himself as a first team regular for Bournemouth, but the 24-year-old has now managed to make his mark in the Premier League this season. He’s made 25 appearances in the Premier League for Eddie Howe’s side this campaign and has weighed in with 5 goals and 3 assists. His versatility makes him a huge asset, as does his pace and willingness to run. This season he has appeared as a right back, right midfielder, second striker and a left winger, and he should now be a part of Howe’s plans for The Cherries next season.
McTominay, 21, has made the breakthrough at Manchester United this season under the guidance of manager Jose Mourinho, and there are big hopes surrounding the central midfielder, especially with Michael Carrick retiring from professional football. He’s made a total of 22 senior appearances for United this season just gone and he is likely to make more over the course of the 2018/19 campaign. He should be able to learn a lot from the likes of Nemanja Matic and Paul Pogba, and with Carrick now focusing on coaching, he too could have a big impact on McTominay’s development.
The three players mentioned above are the real stand out talents currently plying their trade in the English Premier League right now. However, there are again string rumours that suggest Celtic left back Kiernan Tierney could be set for a move to a top English clubtoo.
