CELTA VIGO - ONE TO WATCH - JESULI

ALTHOUGH still to nail down a regular first-team berth, Jesuli is perhaps the most exciting attacking talent that Celta possess.
The 24-year-old attacking midfielder is equally at home playing just behind the front players or down the flanks and possess two great feet.
A product of the Sevilla youth system, he joined Celta in the 2001 season for around £4 million.
He took his time to settle at El Estadio Balaidos and only made seven starts in his first full season in Vigo, but quickly established himself as a favourite of the Celta supporters.
Last term the gifted schemer managed 15 league starts, and a further 11 appearances as substitute, but chipped in with a total of 8 goals as the team held off Valencia to clinch the final Champions league spot, and scored as Celta saw off Slavia Prague in the qualifying round of this season's competition.
On his day Jesuli is one of the most exciting prospects in Spanish football and combines a wonderful range of passing and crossing with an eye for goal, Celta will hope this is to be his most productive season to date.
