The Big Six teams in the Premier League, despite the pressure of achievement, still produce many remarkable young stars this season.
Performance of breakthrough young faces in the Premier League 2019/20
The Premier League 2019/20 has not ended but the Big Six clubs this season have shown that despite the pressure of achievement, they can also give young stars the opportunity and become notable names. Top 6 clubs have had at least one outstanding player among young people, and here are the typical examples.
1. Liverpool: Curtis Jones (19 years old, 484 minutes)
We start with the club at the top of the table and will almost win the championship this season if the season continues after the Covid-19 epidemic. The Liverpool team has been in shape since the 2018/19 season and so it is difficult for young stars to start, but Curtis Jones still made a great impression during the little time he played.
2. Man City: Eric Garcia (19 years old, 718 minutes)
The Spanish center-back has been given the opportunity in the context of City’s crisis in the defense, and he has performed quite well, although not completely trusted by Pep Guardiola. Garcia has started 7 matches for Man City this season and including 3 clean sheets, the remaining 4 matches conceded only 1 goal per game and The Citizens have won all 7.
3. Chelsea: Mason Mount (21 years old, 2866 minutes)
Frank Lampard’s revolution at Chelsea has provided a foothold for a series of young stars from Kurt Zouma, Reece James, Fikayo Tomori or Billy Gilmour. But Mount is the main kicker with 25 Premier League matches and 5 Champions League matches and 6 appearances for England.
Mount has 6 goals & 4 assists in all fronts, the number may be modest but the positive impact on the team’s play is proven quite a lot. Still young and much to learn, the bright future remains ahead for Mount.
4. MU: Mason Greenwood (18 years old, 1655 minutes)
Being coached by Ole Gunnar Solskjaer as the most instinctive striker of MU star at this time, Greenwood now has the starting time of this season by Jesse Lingard but the goal efficiency is superior (12 – 2). A statistic even confirms that Greenwood has the fastest spurt of MU star players this season.
Still very young but quite calm, confident and know how to handle both legs, Greenwood is slowly but surely in his steps to a starting spot in the first team MU. It would not be surprising if the “Red Devils” refused to buy a top striker to believe in him in the coming seasons.
5. Arsenal: Bukayo Saka (18 years, 2034 minutes)
Saka climbed up dramatically when he started against one of the Big Six, Manchester United at Old Trafford in the second match in the Premier League, and that promotion even followed the position. Earlier in September last year, Saka was compared with teammate Reiss Nelson for the position of the left-wing striker, but now he starts as a left-back and is even considered for the national team.
6. Tottenham: Japhat Tanganga (20 years old, 952 minutes)
Not a time he was named under Mauricio Pochettino, Tanganga suddenly appeared in the first team when Jose Mourinho took the lead and Tanganga has since been challenged in every position in the defense. Tanganga seems to have a lot of ground under “The Special One” because the MU star defense imitated Nemanja Vidic is said to be very suitable for the Portuguese coach’s solid defensive play.
