I take a look at the Premier League's five youngest talents to grace the competition this season.

Angel Gomes - Manchester United



16 years, 8 months


I'm sure that all of you Premier League followers have heard of this name, in the past couple of weeks. Despite Mourinho being well known for snubbing his youngsters, particularly at Chelsea, the Portuguese manager made 16-year-old the first ever player born in the 2000's, to play in the Premier League. He came on to replace United legend, Wayne Rooney, in a 2-0 win over Crystal Palace. The youngster had been on fire, prior to his first team debut, scoring 12 goals in 19 starts for the Manchester United U18's, a club he's been at since the age of 6.

The Premier League has seen some fine young talent over the years, from Pogba making his debut, aged 18 to 17-year-old Michael Owen, young Premier League players have made a significant impact on the success of the Premier League. Whether the players mentioned will grow into superstars is unseen, but, they've had the most valuable head start to mould them into superstars.
