The Premier League is full of hyped stars — but there are still a few who do not get the credit they deserve.

We take a look at six players whose efforts go under the radar.

Wataru Endo (Liverpool)

Wataru Endo was considered a budget version of what Liverpool really needed when reshaping their midfield last summer.

But instead, the Japanese international has become integral to the way they play.

The only Reds midfielder to last 120 minutes in Sunday's Carabao Cup final victory, Endo's 15 domestic appearances this season have produced 13 wins and two draws.

Ben White (Arsenal)

Evolving from a composed centre-back to a marauding right-back, Ben White is a fundamental piece of Mikel Arteta's jigsaw.

The English defender has played the sixth-most minutes for the Gunners in the Premier League and offers both physical and technical skills down that side.

He also gets the best out of Bukayo Saka often making runs down the outside to free up space for the winger.

Pascal Gross (Brighton)

Another near ever-present for his side, Pascal Gross has played more minutes than any other Brighton player in the league this term.

And after registering 14 goal involvements more than any of his team-mates, as well as stars such as Richarlison and Alexander Isak he surely has a claim to be the most underrated player in the division.

The German, who could be selected for Euro 2024 this summer, has also played plenty of minutes at full-back this season.

Craig Dawson (Wolves)

Over 12 years since making his Premier League debut for Bolton, Craig Dawson is still turning out consistently solid performances at the top level.

Now playing for his third top-flight team, the 33-year-old has only missed two league matches for Wolves this season, with his aerial ability and bravery a huge asset to Gary O'Neil's side.

Dawson is not the most glamourous player but guarantees you a decent level of performance.

Abdoulaye Doucoure (Everton)

It is no coincidence that Everton are unbeaten in the last seven games Abdoulaye Doucoure has started — and have only lost to Manchester United and Liverpool with the Frenchman in the side since September.

Doucoure plays as an unconventional No10, with his off-the-ball work and dribbling skills more effective than his passing.

He has scored six league goals this season, with Dominic Calvert-Lewin the Toffees' next most prolific player on three.

Christian Norgaard (Brentford)

An unheralded presence at the base of Brentford's midfield, Christian Norgaard ranks 11th for tackles and ninth for interceptions in the Premier League this season.

The Bees skipper has also popped up with a couple of goals and is a popular player at the Gtech Community Stadium as he approaches his fifth anniversary at the club.

The Dane will be fundamental to Thomas Frank's side as they attempt to avoid relegation.
