Premier League: Five weakest players (1)

Published 22 Comments

Power and pace have always been seen as something synonymous with the English Premier League, something that all players need to survive in its intimidating surrounds.

This is no Spain, where swarms of technically proficient midgets canter around being 'tactical' and hit the deck at the slightest feeling of an opponent within touching distance.

New players arriving are often described as not being strong enough to deal with all the jostling, headless-chicken midfield running and meaty challenges that get doled out by the giants marauding around the mudheap pitches.
