Emil Forsberg. The 26-year-old winger is an impressive, speedy and clinical player who will see the ball plenty. He's done well at Red Bull Leipzig since his move from Malmo in 2013 and already has 36 caps with the national team. He'll be counted on as the creator in attack.
Player to watch
John Guidetti. The former Manchester City man hasn't lived up to some high expectations. He had one good season on loan at Feyenoord but other than that has been inconsistent. He's strong and good in the air, but it feels like there is a shortage of confidence.
