Four journalists squabbled over who is the most underrated player in the Premier League. You had the casting vote in our Twitter poll. Your winner? Emi Buendia.

Eurosport’s new series ‘The Debate’ saw four writers make a case for four different players before having their arguments picked apart in new vodcast and podcast ‘Game of Opinions’.

Buendia (36%) took the spoils, with a tight finish between second-placed Vicente Guaita (23.5%) and third-placed Conor Hourihane (23%) completing the podium. Lucas Moura was quickly discounted in the discussion and so was not eligible. Sorry, Lucas. Sorry, Ben.
