There are a handful of high-profile Premier League players we all expected to shine at the start of this season but, for various reasons, have flattered to deceive.
Whether it's because they've suffered from injuries, failed to convince their managers or simply struggled to adapt, the players on this list have all endured frustrating campaigns.
However, there is light at the end of the tunnel for all eight players who feature on this list. And we predict they will all enjoy much better seasons next term.
Are they any other players who should be on this list? Do you disagree with any of the selections? Have your say in the comments section below.
