10 Young players to watch in the EPL

The English Premier League will finally return to action in just under two weeks time following over three months of no play due to the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. 
While Liverpool is destined to win their first league title in three decades, there is still the not so small matter of UEFA Champions League places up for grabs while several teams are still amid a relegation scrap. 
With 10 rounds of fixtures remaining, Betway identifies 10 young players (who made their first Premier League start this season) to keep an eye on over the next few weeks: 

Dean Henderson

(23, Manchester United/ Sheffield United) 
The United shot-stopper has spent the season on-loan in Sheffield where he has helped the Blades push for a UEFA Champions League spot. Henderson has kept the second most clean sheets in the league this season with 10 in 27 Premier League matches. The 23-year-old Englishman looks set for a long a fruitful career at both club and international level. 

Mason Greenwood

(18, Manchester United)
The Red Devils teenager was a prolific goalscorer throughout his years as a youth player at the club and has impressed in his 22 Premier League games this season, finding the back of the net on five occasions. He has already scored in all the tournaments he played in as an United senior player and looks set to add to the club's never-ending line of academy products to flourish at the highest level. 

Gabriel Martinelli

(18, Arsenal) 
Little was known about the Brazilian forward when he arrived in North London last year, but he hasn't taken long to emerge as one of world football's brightest young stars. Blessed with extreme pace and an eye for goal, Martinelli - much like Greenwood - looks destined for a very successful career. The Gunners teenager has scored three goals in 14 league games; including two in his last three games before lockdown. 

Harry Wilson

(23, Liverpool/ Bournemouth) 
The Welsh winger has impressed in his time on-loan at Bournemouth this season, for a Cherries side that have battled at the wrong end of the standings. Wilson has been a regular throughout the current campaign and is the club's second top scorer having netted seven goals in 23 Premier League appearances.

Ismaïla Sarr

(22, Watford) 
The man who ended Liverpool's unbeaten run; Sarr scored a brace and assisted the other in a 3-0 win over the Reds in February. The Hornets have been involved in a relegation scrap for most of the season but the Senegal international has been a shining light. He has directly contributed to nine goals in 19 Premier League appearances and is amongst an exciting crop of African stars in England's top-flight. 

Mason Mount

(21, Chelsea) 
Chelsea have several exciting youngsters in their squad and Mount is part of not only a generation of future Blues stars, but English stars at the club. He has impressed in his first season as a Chelsea first team player and has played in every single Premier League game under Frank Lampard during the 2019/20 campaign, scoring six times and assisting a further five goals in 29 appearances. 

Bukayo Saka 

(18, Arsenal) 
Another future English star in the making, Saka has been a shining light for an Arsenal side performing well below expectations this season. The Gunners teenager is remarkably versatile, comfortable both in defence and attack and is a real threat from left-back. He has also been used higher up the pitch and while he hasn't scored in Premier League this season as yet, he has assisted three goals in 18 Premier League games. 

Pedro Neto

(20, Wolverhampton Wanderers) 
A regular for Wolves this season, Neto arrived at the club from Lazio in August. The Portuguese youth international, who can play across the front line, has scored two goals and assisted the same amount in 21 Premier League appearances for a club consistently improving in England's top division. 

Reece James

(20, Chelsea) 
Another of the Blues youngsters that had to mould his game elsewhere before getting a crack in the first team, James has impressed in a number of positions for Chelsea this season. A right-back by profession, he has also played in midfield and is a threat going forward. In total, he has assisted two goals in 17 Premier League appearances in the 2019/20 campaign. 

Todd Cantwell

(22, Norwich City) 
While the Canaries sit bottom of the Premier League standings, they still boast a lot of exciting young talent. Cantwell is one of those players with the midfielder having established himself as an integral member of the Norwich team this season. A real threat in the final third, he he has scored six goals and assisted two more in 29 games - featuring in every league game for the club this season. 
Those who narrowly missed out: Eddie Nketiah, Harvey Elliott,  Fikayo Tomori, Max Aarons, Christian Pulisic, Moussa Djenepo, Allan Saint-Maximin, Billy Gilmour, Emi Buendía.
