Top 5 Most Underused Players This Season
The transfer window is open and teams are looking to make a mad dash at signing the star that could help them move up the table but there are a few teams that have stars already present in their squad but aren’t using them all that much.
Football is a tough game and only 18 players get to take part in the match day squad, only 11 get to start and that means a lot of tough decisions are made regarding who gets to play regularly and not. One example of how things can work out is Joel Campbell who has found a new lease of life at Arsenal but that only came about due to the injuries to players such as Alexis Sanchez and Theo Walcott.
With so many players at their disposal, it sometimes becomes tough for a player to get regular minutes in their team. We look at five players who could have made a difference to their squad but haven’t actually been given enough chances and are being underused by their Premier League side.
5. Rickie Lambert
Lambert isn’t the youngest player in the world but he is effective and when he moved to West Brom from Liverpool at the start of the season everyone expected him to play a big part for the team, especially with Tony Pulis in the side. However the signings of Solomon Rondon has greatly reduced Lambert’s playing time and this has probably made him think about his future not only at the club but his career also, seeing he is more than 30.
