talkSPORT Selector: Tottenham’s Gareth Bale and Chelsea’s Kai Havertz among players ready to fire in the Premier League


Nov. 20, 2020

The international break is over, and we can all settle in for a four-month stretch of domestic football. Bliss.
In even better news, by entering our new talkSPORT Selector game – which closes tomorrow – you could stand to make a tidy sum if you can predict which teams will perform best.
Teams are of course fired by individuals though, and here are three players we think could take off in the coming period…
Gareth Bale
The training sessions are in the bank. As is the pitch time after a week with Wales. Surely that means the real Bale will now stand up?
As a man for the big occasion, perhaps the ex-galactico was just waiting for Spurs’ toughest games before flicking the switch.
And a run of Man City (h), Chelsea (a) and Arsenal (h) is about as tough as it gets.
Will the BKS (Bale-Kane-Son) trident finally catch light?
Kai Havertz
It’s been a quiet start to life at Chelsea for Havertz.
Which makes it easy to forget that he cost £73 million, that he’s already a star of Germany’s national side, and that he had 61 goal involvements (goals and assists) in 118 Bundesliga appearances during his time with Bayer Leverkusen.
And all that before the age of 21.
Chelsea have been very impressive of late even without their new midfielder in prime form – so what could they be when he has adapted to his new surroundings?
Rhian Brewster
Sheffield United need goals….like the desert needs the rain. And by bringing in Brewster, Chris Wilder has certainly tried to do something about his squad’s main failing.
The £23m man hasn’t yet found the net for the Blades, but much like Bale and Havertz, he needs his own period of acclimatisation.
Brewster has only played six months of competitive senior football in his career and is therefore still callow, but he has also top-scored in – and won – a junior World Cup.
The pedigree is there, will it now come out?
