The Premier League is abound with some of the brightest young talents in the world.

Honourable mentions: Phil Foden (Manchester City), Dean Henderson (Sheffield United), Allan Saint-Maximin (Newcastle United), Emiliano Buendia (Norwich City), Declan Rice (West Ham United), and Ben Chilwell (Leicester City)

#10 Richarlison (Everton)

Richarlison continued from where he left last time and finished with an identical amount of goals for the Toffees at 13. Even though that wasn’t enough to pull the side out of mid-table mediocrity – Everton finished 12th this season, four places worse off than last year – he proved to be one of the few bright spots in an otherwise topsy-turvy campaign, netting against top shouts such as Liverpool, Chelsea, Manchester City, Leicester City (both home and away), and Arsenal. That’s a testament to his big-game mentality and was rewarded for his exploits with a new five-year contract back in December.

#9 Mason Greenwood (Manchester United)

What a breakthrough this has been for Greenwood! The 18-year old became an important part of Ole Gunnar Solksjaer’s plans in no time and was also one of the best players in the side after the restart. He has 17 goals to his name thus far in all competitions, 10 of which came in the Premier League, the most by any player in the division under the age of 21. A right-winger by trade who’s also come up trumps as a center-forward, the teenager broke numerous records along the way and even forged an exciting partnership with Marcus Rashford and Anthony Martial.

#8 James Maddison (Leicester City)

Maddison’s season was curtailed by injuries that ruled him out of the last six games as the Foxes were unable to finish within Champions League places. And its no coincidence, given he was the driving force behind the team’s amazing run until the break that kept Leicester firmly in the top-four. Nevertheless, he was involved in nine goals overall (scored six and assisted three) and much to the fans’ delight, even penned a new contract recently, putting to bed all rumors of a transfer.
