It’s time for Crysencio Summerville to make his full Premier League debut this weekend when Leeds United take on Crystal Palace at Selhurst Park.

Summerville, 20, has been on the fringes of the Leeds first team for over a year now, playing mainly as a substitute in his 13 total senior appearances.

But the Dutch dazzler has never made it into a starting line-up in the Premier League.

And that should change on Sunday in South London.

Summerville has made nine Premier League appearances as a substitute and more often than not, the former Feyenoord attacker has impressed.

Luis Sinisterra is banned for the trip to Palace after being sent off against Aston Villa so it makes sense to do a like-for-like swap that sees Summerville replace him on the right-wing. Summerville can play on the left too, or even as a number 10 so there’s room for Jesse Marsch to mix things up.

Many may be expecting Patrick Bamford, or even Joe Gelhardt, to replace Sinisterra with Rodrigo dropping into the midfield and Brenden Aaronson moving out wide to fill the void left by the Colombian.

However, Rodrigo’s form suggests he deserves to continue starting up front while we cannot be sure that Bamford’s even fully fit yet.

Summerville will slot nicely into that attack and will hopefully showcase the same form he’s shown in the Under-21s this season, where he’s scored one goal and supplied four assists in two Premier League 2 appearances.

The Netherlands Under-21 international is bound to excite Leeds fans.

He’s a pacey, tricky winger who loves to burst forward and cause a nuisance for opposing defenders.

Palace have fast players of their own – so what’s wrong with fighting fire with fire in this case?

Summerville was entrusted with the number 10 shirt at the start of this season.

Leeds surely wouldn’t have given him that if Marsch didn’t intend on starting him in some matches this season and this trip to Palace, based on the circumstances, seems to be the perfect opportunity for a full Premier League for the Dutch dazzler.
