The Premier League has always been known to provide the best football in the world and as the league progresses teams within the league are able to introduce their new young guns to the game.

I am going to run through some of the Premier League young guns to watch out for this coming season, and the reasons behind why they're so highly thought of in the English game.

1) Raheem Sterling

Liverpool really have unearthed a gem within world football after announcing young gun Sterling onto the scene. 

The young winger has so much potential and at the age of 18, Sterling looks destined for stardom. 

Sterling already has a cap for England's senior team and acquires the potential that he has well and truly began to fulfil. 

Brendan Rodgers discovered the quality Sterling possesses and introduced him to first-team football at the beginning of the 12/13 campaign, Sterling was a gem among many average players and really shone in the stint he was rewarded with.

With a spot in the England World Cup squad for Brazil 14 on the agenda, Sterling is poised to play a huge part in Rodgers' plans and could once again set the Premier League alight.

2) Nathan Ake

Rafa Benitez first introduced Ake properly in the Europa League semi-finals, no one really knew what to expect from the young lad but it was soon made clear that Ake had a raw talent. 

Ake was all over the pitch flying in for challenges, passing the ball and really made a name for himself. 

He began to feature more often in the Chelsea line-up and often emulated performances of Chelsea fans' favourite David Luiz, showing a great passing range and flair as well as being a physical and aerial presence on the pitch. 

In years to come Ake will be part of Jose Mourinho's plans and will play a huge part in the success of his club in the future. 

At 18, Ake still has plenty of developing and growing to do but with the correct guidance and with the potential he carries Ake is destined for greatness.

3) Jordan Ibe

Rodgers first introduced the 17-year-old forward against QPR on the final game of the 12/13 campaign. 

Ibe put in a fantastic performance and showed Liverpool fans great potential, Liverpool are willing to give young lads first team opportunities more frequently and you can really see the exciting developments going on at the club. 

Ibe featured for Liverpool against Preston in a recent pre-season friendly scoring a neat goal and showing his boss that he could be huge for his club. 

Fans reviewed their new man's performance after the game and seemed very optimistic about the promising forward's future with Liverpool FC, given the chance and Ibe could be a part of what Rodgers is trying to ignite at Liverpool and could feature more frequently and effectively as the season goes on.

4) Yaya Sanogo

Arsene Wenger was delighted to introduce his latest French project to the Arsenal squad after he announced the capture of promising Auxerre forward Sanogo.

Many deem Sanogo to be the next Thierry Henry, Sanogo is still only 20 and has time on his side as well as the ability to fulfil his potential.

Arsenal's wonderkid has followed in the footsteps of experienced France internationals such as Bacary Sagna and Abou Diaby - who have developed under Wenger.

Sanogo is destined for success in the Premier League and could take many fans by surprise with his undoubted ability.

5) Wilfried Zaha

Zaha has the potential to walk straight into David Moyes' starting 11 as the Scotsman looks to build a fresh set of players to compete for championships under his management. 

Zaha is still a very young lad and the 19-year-old still has plenty of developing to do under Moyes' management. 

Pundits have spoke of their admiration of Zaha and have stated that he is destined for fantastic things at Manchester United. 

Zaha was originally born in Ivory Coast but opted to play for England due to family relations, the young gun has already earned himself a cap and is one of Europe's hottest young talents. 

Zaha could set the Premier League alight with his trickery and flair and could have the Old Trafford faithful on their feet week-in, week-out if given his fair chance in the United starting line-up.
