Players deserving more playing time in the Premier League

Below are the players deserving more playing time in the top football league in England.

Fabio Vieira (Arsenal):

Despite being sidelined due to injury, even when fit, Fabio Vieira plays a backup role to the maestro Martin Odegaard. - Bóng Đá

While acknowledging Odegaard’s pivotal role, there are times when the Norwegian needs rest to avoid burnout and maintain peak performance. Fabio Vieira has only played a total of 238 minutes in the Premier League, contributing an average of one goal or assist every 111 minutes across all competitions this season. Manager Mikel Arteta needs a clearer development plan for the Portuguese talent.

Ansu Fati (Brighton & Hove Albion):

After a disappointing time at Barcelona, Ansu Fati decided to move to the Premier League on loan to seek opportunities. This choice seems justified as the young Spanish talent has made significant contributions to Brighton’s current performance. - Bóng Đá

In the Europa League, Ansu Fati scored 2 goals and provided 1 assist in 4 matches. However, coach Roberto De Zerbi has been reluctant to give him more playing time in the Premier League. The Spanish player has only played 290 minutes in the top-flight English competition and deserves more opportunities to regain his form.

Ian Maatsen (Chelsea):

The Dutch player had an impressive season on loan at Burnley, helping them secure promotion. His outstanding early-season performances made manager Mauricio Pochettino consider keeping him at Chelsea. However, Ian Maatsen is currently the third choice behind Marc Cucurella and Ben Chilwell. Despite this, the 21-year-old defender has not found opportunities at Chelsea. - Bóng Đá

He has not started a Premier League match and played only 131 minutes in 9 substitute appearances. Ian Maatsen played a full 90 minutes only in the Carabao Cup match against AFC Wimbledon in August.

Said Benrahma (West Ham):

Many believe that Said Benrahma deserves recognition as West Ham’s standout player for the 2022/2023 season, surpassing Declan Rice. Despite his impressive performances in the Europa Conference League and the Premier League, manager David Moyes has almost completely overlooked him this season. - Bóng Đá

In the 2022/2023 season, Benrahma scored 12 goals and was West Ham’s top scorer in the Premier League with 6 goals. The emergence of Mohammed Kudus has significantly affected Said Benrahma, who has only played 487 minutes in the Premier League this season.
