The transfer window brought about some interesting moves and amongst them will be players who have a point to prove. Whether that's to their old club, clubs they could have moved to, or critics - there should be plenty for these five players to play for. Let's take a look at exactly why:
Hatem Ben Arfa
Ben Arfa was frozen out at Newcastle United by manager Alan Pardew but remained a fans' favourite on Tyneside. However, given that he knew he wasn't going to get any game time under Pardew, he made the move to Hull City on loan. The Frenchman will want to prove that despite differences he and Pardew may have had, he was good enough to be a key player for the side and should've played more often. Some have already commented on the shrewd piece of business Hull have done in landing him.
Some would say it is the bargain of the summer, others would say it is the biggest risk of the summer, but the Italian forward moved from Milan to Liverpool for £16 million. His talent has been written and talked about a lot whilst his off the field antics have also been mentioned - with some suggesting this is Balotelli's last chance to prove himself at the highest level. He'll want to show his critics he can settle down and be a huge success.
Last season he had a run in with Jose Mourinho at Chelsea after his age was questioned, and was reportedly offered a deal at Liverpool but they opted for Balotelli. Instead Eto'o signed for Merseyside rivals Everton, and will have a point to prove to two clubs. One to Liverpool suggesting they should have signed him whilst they had the chance, the other to Mourinho. Everton stand to gain a huge amount as a result.
Remy was so close to joining Liverpool this summer, only for the Reds to pull the plug on the deal over concerns with his medical. Chelsea had no such concerns, however, as they signed the Frenchman shortly after the departure of Fernando Torres. He'll be desperate to prove he can be a success at a top club as a result.
Despite appearing in a Champions League final, Bertrand may feel he has never really had a chance to impress at Stamford Bridge. With the departure of Ashley Cole this summer, Bertrand may have thought he'd get more of a chance at the club this season - but instead he was sent on loan to Southampton. He's at a terrific club now in Southampton to prove himself, and will be keen to show the rest of the league how good he is.
