Ones to watch

Wilson opened his Newcastle account right away, scoring the Magpies' first at the London Stadium last Saturday. The forward signed a four-year deal after completing a move from AFC Bournemouth, where he found the back of the net 67 times in 187 appearances for the Cherries, during the most recent transfer window.
