This time next week is transfer deadline day.
Most Premier League have probably finished their business by now but some (we’re looking at you, Manchester United) will be looking to make late moves for transfer targets.
But we’ve already seen plenty of new faces in the Premier League during the first three gameweeks.
How have they fared?
There’s a 0/10 and there’s four 9/10’s.
We’ve taken a look and highlighted the most interesting debuts…
Thiago Silva vs West Brom – 0/10
Given the captain’s armband and made a horrible mistake as Chelsea went 3-0 down inside the first half. Fortunately for him, his side did eventually draw the match 3-3. In truth, Silva’s debut actually came against Barnsley…
Pierre-Emile Holjberg vs Everton – 2/10
Kai Havertz vs Brighton – 3/10
A terrible cross-field pass that went viral was all Havertz could muster on his debut against Brighton. He’s since scored a hat-trick against Barnsley mind…
Rodrigo vs Liverpool – 3/10
Coming on and giving away a penalty in the 88th-minute to give Liverpool a 4-3 victory. Not the idea start to Rodrigo’s Leeds’ career.
Matt Doherty vs Everton – 3/10
Robin Koch vs Liverpool – 3/10
Aaron Ramsdale vs Wolves – 4/10
Ramsdale has got a tough task to replace Dean Henderson in Sheffield United’s goal and it hasn’t started particularly well. He conceded twice in six minutes against Wolves on his debut.
Callum Robinson vs Leicester – 5/10
Ferran Torres vs Wolves – 5/10
Eberechi Eze vs Man Utd – 5/10
Dale Stephens vs Southampton – 5/10
Adam Lallana vs Chelsea – 5/10
Brighton were impressive despite their 3-1 loss to Chelsea. Lallana, however, marked his debut by going off injured in the first-half…
Fabio Silva vs Stoke – 6/10
Joe Hart vs Shkendija – 6/10
Diogo Jota vs Lincoln – 6/10
Fernando Marcel vs Sheffield United – 6/10
Antonee Robinson vs Ipswich – 6/10
Kenny Tete vs Ipswich – 6/10
Alphonse Areola vs Ipswich – 6/10
Jayden Bogle vs Burnley – 6/10
Donny van de Beek vs Crystal Palace – 6/10
Van de Beek marked his Manchester United debut with a goal as he came off the bench during his side’s 3-1 loss to Crystal Palace.
Timo Werner vs Brighton – 6/10
Werner is still looking for his first Chelsea goal but he looked sharp against Brighton, winning a penalty for the opener.
Illan Meslier vs Liverpool – 7/10
He may have conceded four goals to Liverpool but he couldn’t have done much to stop Mohamed Salah’s hat-trick or Virgil van Dijk’s header.
Ryan Fraser vs Blackburn – 7/10
Mario Lemina vs Ipswich – 7/10
Jamal Lewis vs West Ham – 7/10
Callum Wilson vs West Ham – 7/10
A goal on his Newcastle debut during a 2-0 win only earns Wilson a 7/10. Harsh.
Thiago vs Chelsea – 7/10
A Premier League record of 75 passes in 45 minutes for Thiago against Chelsea. To be fair, he had all the space in the world against 10 men.
Nathan Ake vs Wolves – 7/10
Ollie Watkins vs Burton – 8/10
A goal on his Aston Villa debut as they scraped past Burton 3-1 thanks to two late goals.
Jeff Hendrick vs Burnley – 8/10
Kostas Tsmimikas vs Lincoln – 8/10
Andy Robertson’s back-up produced a very promising debut during Liverpool’s 7-2 win against Lincoln in the League Cup.
Bertrand Traore vs Bristol City – 8/10
Abdoulaye Douceur vs Tottenham – 8/10
Matty Cash vs Sheffield United – 8/10
Willian vs Fulham – 9/10
Just the three assists for the new Arsenal signing during a very comfortable opening day victory against Fulham.
Allan vs Tottenham – 9/10
Emiliano Martinez vs Sheffield United – 9/10
A penalty save and a clean sheet. Martinez is already looking well worth the £20 million Aston Villa paid for him.
Gabriel vs Fulham – 9/10
Gabriel earned the Man of the Match award for his goal and expert defending during Arsenal’s 3-0 win against Fulham.
James Rodriguez vs Tottenham – 9/10
What a start James has made to his Everton career. His debut saw him impress during Everton’s 1-0 victory against Spurs.
