Players to watch
- Scorers 2012-2013: 1) 13 hat-tricks scored by 11 different players; 2) Top goalscorer: Robin Van Persie – 56 goals (last two seasons).
- 4 newcomers to watch out for: 1) Andre Schurrle (Chelsea). Mourinho’s first signing since returning to the Bridge, the stylish German international is naturally comfortable on the ball, playing wide and in a central role. Helped Bayer
Leverkusen to a top-three finish last season and has 7 goals for the national side in 24 appearances; 2) Paulinho (Tottenham Hotspur). Powerful and complete Brazilian, able to break up play and force attacks should adapt well into the
intensity of the Premiership. Able to claim his fair share of goals he volleyed home the equalizer against England earlier in the year; 3) Stevan Jovetic (Manchester City). Boss Pellegrini may have unearthed a gem when he signed this
classy forward from Fiorentina for a reported £22m. The talented youngster has an eye for goal and represented Montenegro 27 times scoring 10 goals; 4) Wilfried Zaha (Manchester United). Sir Alex Ferguson's last signing, the
England winger dazzled in the Championship and looks set to terrorise Premier League fullbacks. Bags of pace and an eye for a goal, it’s unlikely that Zaha will warm the bench at Old Trafford.
- Watch out Cardiff City, Crystal Palace and Hull City – only twice in Premier League history have all three promoted clubs avoided the drop – in 2001-2002 (Fulham, Blackburn Rovers and Bolton Wanderers) and 2011-2012 (QPR,
Norwich City and Swansea City): 1) 2004-2005. West Brom. Survived relegation with a meager 34 point – the fewest in Premier League history; 2) 2002-2003. West Ham were relegated with 42 points still the most points for a
relegated team in the Premier League.
