The January transfer window was quiet for Premier League clubs due to Financial Fair Play and the Profit and Sustainability Rules. Summer spending sprees are expected, and managers are trusting current players to fill squad gaps for now. Manchester United’s Kobbie Mainoo has benefitted from spending constraints and emerged as a key player in the team, scoring a winning goal against Wolves. He has become the heartbeat of United’s midfield and showcased his skills beyond just ball-winning.
Willy Kambwala, a talented defender, has made two Premier League appearances for United this season and could feature more regularly in the future. Newcastle’s Lewis Miley has become an important player due to an injury crisis, with 11 Premier League appearances and starts in Champions League fixtures at just 17 years old. Manchester City’s Oscar Bobb has broken into Pep Guardiola’s plans, while Liverpool’s Conor Bradley and Jarell Quansah have impressed in the Premier League. Brighton’s Hinshelwood and Chelsea’s Gilchrist are also making an impact at their clubs.
Crystal Palace’s David Ozoh is starting to showcase his talent and win the support of fans.
