Premier League football returns this weekend and the latest round of games gives fans a first look at some exciting summer signings.
This weekend’s games will be the first since the transfer window hit, with a number of late risers queuing for their Premier League debuts.
Here are five players we look forward to seeing make their Premier League debut this weekend.
Chelsea moved late to broaden their options with the signing of Saul Niguez from Atletico Madrid. The midfielder had expressed a desire to leave the Spanish champions after becoming frustrated with his role under Diego Simeone.
Saul has fallen victim to his own versatility in recent campaigns, but his multifunctional skills testify to the quality of a footballer who is comfortable in a variety of roles.
The 26-year-old makes Thomas Tuchel embarrassed in central areas, while the left foot in the Chelsea engine room ensures balance.

Saul’s selflessness has often benefited his team at the expense of his own development, but the Spain international is a wonderfully complete central midfielder, adding to a Chelsea squad as talented as anyone on the continent right now.
Dynamic, hardworking and with a quality of possession, perhaps the biggest surprise is that it took so long for one of the European elites to award him this summer from Atletico.
Odsonne Edouard has been associated with the Premier League on a regular basis over the last few seasons after having had a productive record north of the Celtic border.
Edouard has scored 74 goals in all competitions for Celtic in the last three seasons and has been the Scottish Premiership’s top scorer in each of the previous two seasons.
The 23-year-old has now got his chance in the Premier League at Crystal Palace, where he is to lead a new team under the new coach Patrick Vieira with the youth development.
There is no doubt that there is a quality difference between Scotland and England, but a record-breaking return of 17 goals in 14 games for France’s U21 side shows that Edouard is a footballer who knows where the net is.
Palace have recruited well in a mass transfer window at Selhurst Park this summer and Edouard could prove the player is firing the Eagles into a new era – starting with a home game against Tottenham on Saturday lunchtime.
Brighton’s signing from Marc Cucurella was seen as a coup for the Seagulls, securing the 23-year-old a five-year deal from Getafe.
Cucurella went through the academy system in Barcelona before regaining a foothold after leaving Camp Nou.
The summer newcomer was also part of the Spanish squad that won a silver medal at the Summer Olympics this summer and he will meet his international teammate Robert Sanchez at the Amex Stadium this season after making a deadline change from Completed £ 15.4 million.
An energetic and aggressive defender who is also comfortable with being pushed further forward, Cucurella is expected to take on the role of left full-back in Graham Potter’s line-up.
Tottenham secured Emerson Royal from Barcelona on the cut-off date and closed a £ 27.5m deal for the Brazilian international.
The right-back has been on loan at Real Betis for the past three seasons, where only Jordi Alba has been directly involved in more goals among La Liga defenders since the start of the 2019/20 season.
Emerson follows Brazilian traditions as a forward-thinking full-back, his speed and athleticism will provide Spurs with an offensive outlet on the right.

Japhet Tanganga has started the season as a right-back and has impressed, but his offensive performance is limited and the arrival of Emerson, while still raw, may present Spurs with an increased threat forward.
He could be pushed into the team immediately this weekend against Crystal Palace as the league leaders have a long list of unavailable players.
Ok, we know this is not the case technically Cristiano Ronaldo’s Premier League debut but Ronaldo’s return hits the headline ahead of this weekend’s games.
Manchester United’s signing of the five-time Ballon d’Or winners has caused a stir. Ronaldo returned to English football more than a decade after his world-record exit to Real Madrid.

In the period that followed, Ronaldo established himself as the top goalscorer in the history of the Spanish giant, the Champions League and international football. The Portuguese superstar will now write another chapter in his record career in the English elite.
The Newcastle home visit may be the perfect opportunity for CR7 to stay ahead of the curve at Old Trafford.
