The Premier League is home to some of the biggest stars in the world, we have the Alexis Sanchez’s , the Mesut Ozil’s and the Sergio Aguero’s wowing us with their ability week in and week out but many teams also have a few players who get us thinking ‘what are they doing on the pitch?’
Sure they must have some talent to make it into these teams but more often than not they leave fans scratching their heads. We look at five such players from the Premier League who leave us with bewilderment, not in a good sense but just how are they still playing for a Premier League club?
- Joe Allen
The Welsh Xavi, as he is called, is known more for his facial hair which resembles the Italian legend than his playing ability. A star, well a bright player at Swansea, Joe Allen joined Liverpool under Brendan Rodgers and truth be told, most Liverpool fans wouldn’t know what he actually brings into the team.
Allen might have scored in the 3-3 draw against Arsenal but Liverpool fans don’t know what his best position is or what he actually does for the team. It is a miracle he still gets games for the Reds but if he keeps scoring during transfer windows, he will stay at the club.
