A graphic highlighting the average age of every Premier League squad for the 2019/20 season has emerged online this afternoon.
PL up and running
The new English top-flight campaign got underway a little under a month ago, with last season’s runners-up, Liverpool, leading champions Manchester City atop the table as things stand.
Jurgen Klopp’s men have notched 4 wins from their first 4 outings, racking up 12 goals in the process.
Elsewhere, impressive early-season form on the part of both Leicester City and Crystal Palace sees the Foxes and Eagles round out the top-4.
Watford’s abysmal return of just a solitary point sees Javi Gracia’s men bottom of the English top-flight, with Premier League returnees Aston Villa and Norwich also stuck in the relegation zone as things stand.
Arsenal’s youth, Burnley aging
As outlined above, meanwhile, an interesting graphic, showcasing both the squad depth and average age of all 20 Premier League outfits for the current campaign, has been garnering widespread attention online today.
The chart reveals Unai Emery’s Arsenal as the youngest club, at an average age of just 25.1 years.
Chelsea, Tottenham and Manchester United all also feature towards the top of the list, at or around the 26 mark.
League leaders Liverpool, though, currently boast the 4th-oldest Premier League squad. In addition, Jurgen Klopp has just 22 players at his disposal as part of the Reds’ senior setup, the joint-lowest in the division.
Burnley’s average age of 28.8 years, almost 4 years older than Arsenal, meanwhile, sees the Clarets’ panel rank as the English top-tier’s oldest:
