    Goalkeepers are rarely considered as players to watch out for, making Turner that much more special.

    He was a key factor in enabling the New England Revolution to break into the top 10 in the Eastern Conference. After being named a finalist for the Allstate MLS Goalkeeper of the Year, spectators began to take notice of the young star. Fans should expect another great year for him.

    Diego Rossi stands as arguably the best scoring winger in the league.

    He maintained his side afloat last season amid Carlos Velas’ injury spell, and individually the Uruguayan international led the league with 14 goals in 19 matches. With Vela back at his side, Rossi’s creativity as a striker is bound to explode.

    The Atlanta United forward is no stranger to being one to watch.

    Martinez first proved his worth in 2019, standing out with 27 goals scored in 29 games. He’s valued for his consistency from the 18-yard box as he scored in 12 consecutive matches during his breakout year.

    Though he missed most of last season with an ACL tear, Martinez is angsty to get back to his goal-scoring ways.

    LA Galaxy’s newest allstar is on the rise with no end in sight. After a disappointing and injury-fuelled first season, Chicharito has returned this year with a thirst for success.

    He’s already scored 6 goals in the first 4 matches of the 2021 season, and his performance against rival LAFC displayed the side of Chicharito that fans are excited to keep watching.
