Adnan Januzaj- This talented young Belgian has hit the ground running ever since David Moyes gave him his breakthrough this year. The 18-year-old marked his home debut with a brace against Sunderland which was followed by excellent performances against West Bromwich Albion and Southampton. He recently signed a new five year deal with Manchester United and looks set to be a key player in the squad for years to come. Januzaj has seen his name included in United’s Champions League squad, which shows how much faith David Moyes has in him. While he is yet to commit his future to any country, he will no doubt excel wherever he plays. It will be no surprise to see Januzj inherit Manchester United’s famous no.7 shirt in the near future.

Lukaku could become one of the best strikers in the world

Romelu Lukaku- Chelsea fans still cannot understand why Jose Mourinho allowed this talented youngster to join Everton on loan for this season. The 20-year-old Belgian has been excellent for Everton so far scoring on his Tofees debut against West Ham United. Lukaku continued his strong form with a brace against Newcastle United and a goal against Manchester City the week after. The Belgium international scored a brace against Crotia which will booked his country’s berth in next year’s World Cup. Lukaku is destined to be a Chelsea great and may even surpass the achievements of Didier Drogba.

Luke Shaw has been one of the revelations of the season

Luke Shaw- Southampton have once again succeeded in producing a world class player in the form of Luke Shaw. The 18-year-old left back has gained acclaim for his attacking ability and will surely excel this season. Shaw has already scored two goals for the Saints this term and there will be much more to come. He was a constant threat to Manchester United during last weeks game and was constantly going forward to support the attack. David Moyes is reportedly interested in bringing him to Manchester United, which is great news for a player who is destined for great things.

Berahino has been a huge hit for West Bromwich Albion

Saido Berahino- The West Brom youngster is having a dream season so far and looks hungry for more. A hattrick against Newport County and a goal against Manchester United sealed the 20-year-old’s status as a ‘wonder kid’. The England international has scored 4 goals in 3 appearances for the Under-21′s so far and will surely be an asset for the Three Lions once he makes his senior debut. Premier League giants like Arsenal, Chelsea and Everton are keeping a close eye on the youngster, but the Baggies will surely do their best to hold onto their prized player.
