Ever wondered what life as a Premier League player would be like? Well, a body cam worn by Youri Tielemans has offered a unique insight.The Belgium international midfielder is among those to have been on the move this summer, with the 26-year-old playmaker trading life at Leicester City for that at Aston Villa. He has been figuring in their pre-season tour of the United States, with his first outing for the Villans coming against Champions League-bound Newcastle United on July 24. Tielemans, who was introduced off the bench in said fixture, was fitted with a camera which helped to show fans what it is like to be an elite performer.
The footage from Tielemans shows how much running he does in the middle of the park, as well as communicating with those around him, while he is also captured taking a corner and indulging in post-game pleasantries with opponents and the match officials. Premier League referee Peter Bankes also wore a body cam in Fulham’s Summer Series clash with Brentford – which allowed him to offer a different perspective of Harry Wilson’s stunning strike in that contest.
Villa and Newcastle played out a 3-3 draw at Lincoln Financial Field in Philadelphia, with Ollie Watkins opening the scoring for Unai Emery’s side before Emi Buendia bagged a brace.
