The top six - which kid comes out on top?

Playing youngsters seems to be in fashion in the Premier League again, and the first weekend of the season saw a few players across the top six who have a chance of cementing a place in their club's first XI by the end of the season.

So, out of these players, who do you think will be the star come the end of this season and who has the best chance of being a regular starter at their clubs?

Arsenal - Joe Willock - just 4 appearances to his name prior to this season but straight into the starting XI for their first game.

Chelsea - Mason Mount - made quite a few loan appearances at Derby and Vitesse, but this weekend saw his competitive debut for the club away at OT.

Liverpool - Rhian Brewster - ahead of the pecking order from Sturridge and not yet made his competitive debut. Signed from Chelsea.

Man City - Phil Foden - ahead of the players above in terms of appearances and huge praise from his manager, but nothing more than a bit part bench player up until now.

Man Utd - Mason Greenwood - just three appearances prior to this season but Ole is talking up the game time that he's likely to get this season.

Tottenham - Kyle Walkers-Peters - was surprised to see he's only actually made nine appearances for the club but with Trippier having moved on and no signings made for his position, will KWP oust Auerier and make the right back position his own?


How great to see these emerging talents and in particular, to see Man Utd and Chelsea focusing on so much youth in their sides.

Will it work out and do we have a future England star in the crop above?

Who comes out on top from the kids?

Can your grandma also average better than a goal every other game on minutes played?

In this City team? My grandma probably not but my grandpa would come close to that, yeah.

My grandma could look decent making some cameos and one or two starts for this City team.

Sessegnon is a weird one in a way. Great experience for his age and he’ll undoubtedly end up a decent PL player, like Ward Prowse. Will be be great, even a regular England player? Not sure. The best parts to his game for me lie in his positioning and attacking runs, even as a LB his impacts on game came as goals/assists but in a Marcos Alonso style of being in right place at right time. Traditional things a LB are good at he’s not really anything over average. Not strong or physical, not good crossing technique, average passer, not a good defender, not good one on one dribbling ability. Quite good pace. To be honest I think he should stay as an attacker and look to build in his strengths, may sound weird but his highest ceiling to my eyes is as a Muller style player not a LB.

I think we need to give him a year or two under Poch.

Danny Rose used to be a bit of a laughing stock to me, but Poch turned him into a highly rated left back.

Is a comelette a chocolate flavoured omelette?

You guys are right in Sessegnon’s defence. He is still so young that he, like many players, can completely change their style and profile within a few years, and he is under a good manager to do so.
