Sinclair and Wilson among Premier League's next breakthrough players?

With aging defenders and money to spend, Chelsea have their eye on John Stones, and ESPN FC's Gabriele Marcotti says it's a necessary investment.
There are big expectations for Liverpool's Jerome Sinclair, left, Chelsea's Bertrand Traore, middle, and Manchester United's James Wilson, right, this season.

Star names and big-money signings may hog the headlines but fans are also frequently fascinated by the young players with the talent to build their reputations at their club.

It is always dangerous to read too much into preseason performances, whether they happen to be good or bad. The lower level of intensity compared to competitive matches, the experimental lineups and the markedly less stringent officiating make them little more than exhibition matches. Although they might be irrelevant in the grand scheme of things, it is still possible to glean some useful pointers as the start of the new campaign approaches.

Chelsea's preseason fixture list has been relatively...
