With the 2022/23 Premier League season almost upon us, there is no doubt that the world’s biggest - and most popular - football league will have fans in Ghana getting incredibly excited for the campaign ahead!
Of course, many Ghanaians continue to tune in regularly to watch some of the biggest football teams and the world’s best players continue to compete against each other as they each look to try and achieve the aims that the team has.
Naturally, this activity has been able to grow further for many in the African country over the years as they are now able to place sports bets on the action that takes place on the pitch. Bettors are able to use the great collection of betting sites not on gamstop where they are able to enhance their passion further by getting the most competitive odds and markets to wager on every time the ball is kicked in the Premier League.
With the 2022 FIFA World Cup also scheduled to take place this winter, there may be some who will be interested in seeing what the players who can represent Ghana in Qatar are able to do before the sport’s biggest competition.
With the help of the data provided by Soccerway, we have listed each of the Black Stars that will play football in the English Premier League, and provide you with everything you need to know about what could be possible as the season gets underway in England!
How many Ghanaians will be playing in the Premier League?
As of writing, there are currently seven players in the Premier League that can potentially represent the Black Stars at the upcoming 2022 FIFA World Cup. They are the following:
- J. Ayew (Crystal Palace)
- D. Amartey (Leicester City)
- T. Fosu (Brentford)
- T. Partey (Arsenal)
- A. Baba (Chelsea)
- M. Salisu (Southampton)
- J. Schlupp (Crystal Palace)
Of course, there will be some names that will perhaps be more important than others where Ghanaians are concerned, as they are likely to have a greater impact on the nation’s chances of enjoying a successful World Cup campaign.
Eyes on Partey; Unlikely to see Baba
One of the main men that supporters will be watching closely will be Thomas Partey, as the midfielder is going to be a key influence for the Black Stars in the upcoming competition. He will also be an integral part of the Arsenal squad and will be looking to try and bring silverware to the Emirates Stadium, as well as bringing UEFA Champions League football back to the club. Additionally, we can expect to see the likes of Jordan Ayew, Mohammed Salisu, and Jeffrey Schlupp rather frequently for their clubs. However, fans are going to find it hard to see Abdul Baba Rahman. Despite the fact being a regular for the Black Stars when it comes down to international competition, he has not been seen in a Chelsea shirt for years and that is unlikely to change any time soon, either.
