The EFL Young Team of the Season – Forwards

Right-wing: Helder Costa, Wolverhampton Wanderers

Since his arrival at Molineux in July 2016, there has always been an element of excitement surrounding him. His quick feet and trickery have been a handful for Championship defenders throughout this season, and he played a big hand in knocking out Premier League giants Liverpool out of the EFL Cup in January.

The winger made his loan move permanent in the January window and he has continued to be a real bright spark for Wolves. He took a clean sweep in the club’s end of season award ceremony, and has been touted for big things in the future. It is rumoured that he has a release clause in his contract, and murmurs of Premier League clubs wanting to activate it are already circulating within the media.

Left-wing: Isaiah Brown, Rotherham United & Huddersfield Town

Isaiah ‘Izzy’ Brown has excelled in the Championship this season, in what has been a real stepping stone for him. He began the season on loan at bottom-club Rotherham, and after impressing, earned himself a move to play-off placed Huddersfield Town. He can play across a front-three, and slotted in very well for the Terries in the absence of Kasey Palmer.

Brown is still on Chelsea’s books, but it is thought that Huddersfield could sign the player in the summer, which is a testament to his excellent performances throughout the campaign. The 20-year old has found the net on seven occasions in 35 domestic appearances, and has assisted five times too. The player has hardly been given a chance at Chelsea, and yet he is highly thought of as a potential Premier League winger in the media.

Striker: Tammy Abraham, Bristol City

Abraham is another product of the Chelsea academy, and like Isaiah Brown has had a phenomenal season out on loan in the Championship. He was picked up by newly-promoted side Bristol City, and has been an invaluable member of their squad in securing City’s survival within the division.

The 19-year old has notched 23 goals in 41 league appearances, at a rate of 149 minutes per goal. That figure is extremely impressive for a man of his age, and his combination of pace and power has already attracted the interest of recently-promoted Brighton. It is unlikely that City will be able to acquire his services on loan for a further year, and this summer could prove to be the window in which Chelsea decide to sell the player.
