Huddersfield Town v West Bromwich Albion - Premier League
A lot of players in the Premier League go about doing their business quietly but efficiently

Each club has some star players who get the headlines and rightly so. But each team has certain players who do their job efficiently and effectively, albeit under the radar. Due to this, they don't receive the hype from the general public that they deserve.

On that note, here are the most underrated players from each Premier League team.


AFC Bournemouth - Ryan Fraser

AFC Bournemouth v Everton - Premier League
Ryan Fraser scored a match-winning brace against Everton

Last season, Fraser, a diminutive winger was an underused substitute initially. But he catalyzed the Cherries' 4-3 comeback win over Liverpool in sensational style in December.

Since then, he has enjoyed a run of sorts, in which he has scored 6 and assisted a further 5 already. Possessing loads of pace and trickery, Fraser is certainly not a full-back's dream.

Eddie Howe has unearthed a real gem in Fraser, who at just 23 can develop into a player worthy of better clubs.


Arsenal - Olivier Giroud

Arsenal v Newcastle United - Premier League
Olivier Giroud deserves more credit for the important goals that he scores

Since coming to the Premier League in 2012 from Montpellier, only Romelu Lukaku, Sergio Aguero, and Harry Kane have netted more than Giroud's 73 league goals. Considering that over 30 percent of his appearances were off the bench, that is quite impressive.

The Frenchman's minutes per goal ratio of 157.8 minutes features in the top 20. He has reached double figures in his league tally in each of the five seasons at the Emirates. His record of 105 goals in 249 appearances for Arsenal is certainly commendable.

In spite of these numbers, Giroud continues to face unnecessary flak from the footballing community. A £13 million striker who has crossed a century of goals and doesn't get the praise his goals deserve; underrated, don't you think?
