The 10 Unlikely Premier League Heroes Of The 2014/15 Season Including £18m Liverpool Signing And Manchester United Flop

The players who could impress in the English top flight next term against the odds.

Now that the 2014 World Cup is over attention is once again turning back towards the Premier League and what is going to happen in the 2014/15 season.

As much as people will be looking forward to seeing the big stars in action, there are always a number of surprise players who impress against the odds.

10. Graziano Pelle, Southampton

Saints fans may be getting a bit down currently with the seemingly constant stream of exits from St Mary’s, but the quiet acquisition of a little known Italian from Feyenoord on Saturday could be a shrewd replacement for Rickie Lambert.

Admittedly succeeding in the Eredivise does not necessarily mean it will translate to English football (look at Alfonso Alves and Jozy Altidore), but with 23 league goals in 28 games last term Pelle could well succeed.
