Youngest Premier League Players of 2020

Who are the youngest current Premier League players? We mean actually the youngest Premier League players this season (2019-20), and also we mean the youngest players who have been used on the pitch not those kept on subs bench.
Youngest Premier League Players of 2020

This is important because there are and there always have been players on the bench who were never used as a sub. They should be used on the pitch so that we could call them active players.

And we just refer to the youngest current players in the Premier League who have been active or in other words used on the pitch.

Premier League Youngest Players of 2020

The list of youngest Premier League players this season (2019-20) starts with Curtis Jones of Liverpool with an age of 19 years and 7 months. As we already mentioned, in this post, we only refer to the youngest EPL players of 2020 who have been active (used on the pitch) in 2019-20 season.

Mason Greenwood (18 Years and 11 Months)

The first Manchester United player who also tops the list of youngest Premier League players of 2020, Mason Greenwood is actually a product of Manchester United who’s been serving the Premier League club as a senior player since 2018. He has also played for the Manchester United youth team for 11 years between 2007 and 2018.

Greenwood has made 35 appearances for Manchester United since 2018 and has scored 10 goals for them during this time which actually translates to two goals in every 7 appearances he has made for the Premier League giants. The young Man Utd forward was born on Ocotber 1, 2001, so by now (September 21, 2020), he’s exactly 18 years, 11 months, and 20 days old.

Bukayo Saka (19 Years and 16 Days)

The first Arsenal player on the list of youngest Premier League players of 2020, Bukayo Saka is actually a product of Arsenal and has been playing for the Premier League club as a senior player since 2018 - just like Mason Greenwood who has been serving Man Utd since the same year.

However, unlike Greenwood, Saka has not scored that many goals. He has scored only once in the 28 appearances he has made for Arsenal which is quite justifiable if you consider that he plays both as a winger and left back.
