It is the halfway point of the league season and already we have seen so many talking points among the players. This season has seen much of the focus placed upon the likes of Fernando Torres and Andy Carroll, or rather their increasingly fruitless afternoons in front of goal. Prime example of players who have failed to live up to highly inflated price tags. There are other players who have underperformed but I'll touch onto that in my next piece.
This season has seen as many success stories as well as failures. When discussing your stars of the season with your friends, names such as Sergio Aguero, Gareth Bale and Robin Van Persie will be mentioned frequently. However these are the players who you expect to perform to such a high standard, Ageuro being one of the few who are so far proving money well spent by Manchester City. Others such as Van Persie and Rooney, have been performing to the high standards they have set themselves over the past few years.
But in an age in which it is important for clubs to get the best out there players as most cannot simply drop 100m in a transfer window to replace under-performing players. (Cough, City) There are some players who having been purchased for significantly less then the likes of Aguero, Juan Mata, and Ashley Young; who have performed admirably, often for clubs not necessarily sitting in the right end of the league table.
Listed are the perhaps unsung heros in the league.
Here are my top 10 underrated players this season so far.
