Top four youngest premier league players to reach 25 assist Top five under-21 players with most goal contributions in 2022 Saka Arsenal

These players have been prolific from a young age

In football, there is a proverb that states that if a player is talented enough, they are also old enough. Yet, given the roughness and tempo of the Premier League, it is still uncommon to see young teenagers playing at the top level.

Yet occasionally precocious talent does show itself, and many go on to carve out pretty decent careers for themselves in the game. Who in the league has accumulated 25 assists at the youngest age?

Bukayo Saka (21y and 195d)

Arsenal defeated Crystal Palace 4-1 on Sunday at the Emirates to continue their strong play in the 2022–23 Premier League season. Saka, who is making his 125th Premier League game, now has 25 assists and 29 goals. This season, Saka has made 28 Premier League games and already tallied 12 goals and 10 assists. Saka increased his total from the previous season (11). He became one of the youngest players in the English top-flight league to reach 25 assists.

Trent Alexander-Arnold (21y 140d)

Trent Alexander-Arnold, a right-back for Liverpool, has established himself among the most admired players in Europe under Jürgen Klopp.

The Englishman is the epitome of the contemporary full-back, able to contribute just as well on either end of the pitch. Alexander-Arnold uses his keen awareness of positioning to close up passing routes when defending. He uses his speed to overtake the adversary when moving ahead. One of the few right-backs in the league to provide 25 assists in a season.

Wayne Rooney (21y 63d)

Wayne Rooney, one of the finest attackers in Premier League history, was always meant to succeed. Rooney, who came up via Everton‘s development programme, made his Premier League debut at the age of 16 in the 2002–03 campaign.

He was as stubborn as they come, even as a teenager. He seldom backtracked in the face of a formidable defence and was always ready to put in a strong shift for his squad. By all intents and purposes, Rooney was a fully developed English striker. He was also a playmaker, and his constant passes always got the crowd up from their seats.

Cesc Fabregas (20y 134d)

Cesc Fabregas is frequently hailed as one of the greatest playmakers in Premier League history, and with clear reason. Fabregas excelled for Arsenal under Arsene Wenger having left his native Spain and needing to get used to living in a foreign country (England).

Wenger’s top student, the Spaniard consistently outperformed the Frenchman’s already extremely high standards. One of the operators from the middle of the pitch. Fabregas was a talented midfielder who made a name for himself in several clubs.
