There were several youngsters who rose to the occasion aged 21 or below ahead of the season. We present the best youngsters who impressed largely.
Norwich's Max Aarons has drawn interest from Bundesliga champions Bayern
According to Sky Sports, Bayern Munich are prepared to pay £18.3m for Norwich City right-back Max Aarons this summer. Norwich may have been relegated this season, however, Aarons caught the eye with some impressive performances. He made 48 tackles, 37 interceptions, 73 clearances and won 167 duels. The 20-year-old England international made 36 appearances and was never substituted. That's impressive for a young right-back.
Mason Greenwood is destined to become a superstar
Mason Greenwood's success story is the pick of the season. The 17-year-old Manchester United forward didn't start a league game until December, however, he ended up in the side's starting XI. In 31 league appearances this season, the England teenager scored 10 goals. He is lethal with either foot and has drawn praise from every corner. Greenwood is destined to become a superstar.
Phil Foden tipped to take over from David Silva
20-year-old Manchester City player Phil Foden impressed largely. He had earlier made his league debut in 2017-18 but this season was a breakthrough one. Foden is versatile and is tipped to take over from David Silva. The two-time Premier League champion scored five league goals and contributed with two assists in 23 games this season. He is a key part of Pep Guardiola's side.
Chelsea's Mason Mount deserves all the plaudits
Mason Mount delivered the goods for Chelsea as an attacking mid-fielder. The number 10 was one of the major highlights in terms of consistency and ability in his debut season. He impressed with seven goals and five assists for the Blues in 37 Premier League appearances. He brings dynamism in mid-field, besides being an attacking threat. The 21-year-old England international deserves all the plaudits.
Trent Alexander-Arnold was exceptional for Liverpool
21-year-old Trent Alexander-Arnold was exceptional for champions Liverpool. He featured in all 38 league games this season and has established himself as one of the best right-backs in the world. The Englishman scored four goals and registered 13 assists to show his prowess. For the second season in a row, he registered double figures in league assists.
