Former Liverpool and Tottenham Hotspurs midfielder Jamie Redknapp has identified Clarets forward Andre Gray as the 'one to watch' for the new Premier League campaign.

The Sky Sports pundit outlined his predictions alongside a panel of experts including Gary Neville, Jamie Carragher, Graeme Souness and Thierry Henry for the forthcoming season.

Gray netted 25 goals in the Championship last term to top the division's scoring charts and was named in the PFA Team of the Year. The 25-year-old club record signing has prepared for life in the top flight by scoring nine times in five pre-season outings.

Redknapp named Manchester United's summer signing Henrikh Mkhitaryan as his number one choice, saying: "Obviously you've got the likes of Pogba and Leroy Sane but I like watching a player who can thread a ball through the eye of a needle. That's why I can't wait to see him show those qualities."

But he went on to add: "The surprise player I think will be Burnley's Andre Gray. He's another one to watch."
