Liverpool were a brilliant team to watch last season and many neutral Premier League fans were willing them on to claim an unexpected title ahead of their big-spending rivals Chelsea and Manchester City. One of the reasons they got so much support was because of the refreshingly exciting football they were playing with a raft of young stars.
They could not maintain their charge and collapsed with a handful of games remaining, allowing Manchester City to claims a second Premier League trophy in three years, but will still be remembered fondly for the link-up play between the likes of Luis Suarez, Daniel Sturridge and Philippe Coutinho.
However, one man really took the breath away as Brendan Rodgers' side continued to post win after win as the season went on - Raheem Sterling. The 19-year-old attacking midfielder flourished in only his second full season of regular Premier League football, making himself a nuisance for opposition defenders and eventually earning a place in the England starting XI at the World Cup in Brazil.
Aaron Ramsey of Arsenal was another who came of age last season and swathes of Gunners fans have dreamt of what might have been had the Welshman not missed three months through injury. An injury that coincided with the petering out of their own surprise title challenge.
A rare pleasure
Emirates Stadium fans are used to seeing young players blossom in Arsene Wenger's first team and will be able to attest more than most to the pleasure of seeing promise turn into product.
Sterling and Ramsey were two of a number of young stars to really announce their arrival last season, but we have been thinking about those we believe may be able to do the same in the 2014/15 edition of the Premier League.
GMS have picked out seven players we feel have shown glimpses of promise in the last season or two and feel can, given the opportunity, really push on and make themselves one of the major names in the Premier League.
