Olivier Giroud: In my opinion, this man will adapt to the Premier League fairly easily. This is because he is a very physical player, who won’t get fazed by big challenges and intimidating centre-backs.
Prediction: He will have a successful season, scoring approximately 15 goals.
Lukas Podolski: Podolski will also cope I think. He comes from the second most physical league, the Bundesliga. This is why he’ll be ok. Future team-mate Giroud will find it easier, as I’m sure Podolski will struggle early on.
Prediction: He will get better and better, especially if he’s played upfront, where he can poach goals.

Jan Vertonghen: Left-back/centre back Vertonghen will cope easily. He’s a strong young man, and can cope with high-tempo football. This is why I was disappointed when my favourite club Arsenal narrowly missed out on him.
Prediction: A solid season, that will see him highly rated nationally.

Marko Marin: Chelsea fans will have to be patient, as it’ll take one season for this youngster to get-to-grips with the Premier League.
He has bags of talent, but I’m far from convinced that he’ll be able to fend off a huge defender kicking at his ankles. Although he came from Bundesliga, he’ll still struggle.
Prediction: A long, hard season.
Eden Hazard: Like Marin, Chelsea fans will need to wait for the best of this lad. Next season he won’t be effective. When Belgium played England, Hazard was kicked off the park. I can see this happening a lot next season.
Prediction: He’ll struggle, but next season shine.

Shinji Kagawa: Kagawa is madly talented, and fairly strong. He will definitely be able to cope next year. I think his pace and strength will make him relatively comfortable next year.
Prediction: An amazing season. Good amount of assists and goals.

Pavel Pogrebnyak: In the Pog Reading have signed a goal-scorer. During a successful loan-spell at Fulham, he scored 6 goals in 12 matches. Very impressive. His height, Premier League experience, and build will settle him next year.
Prediction: Goals, goals, and more goals.
