An interesting statistic has been revealed following the opening four games of our Premier League season, highlighting that the average age of our 4 teams played so far is younger than any other club in the league.
The Chronicle’s Mark Douglas unearthed this revealing statistic after yesterday’s win, showing that our average of 24.6 is the youngest in the top flight thus far, with SIX of the starting 11 at Swansea being 24 or under:

Whilst some may suggest we’re therefore lacking experience, it could be argued this is a stat that bodes well for the future, with the majority of our 25-man squad being 25 or under:
Woodman (20), Manquillo (23), Lascelles (23), Mbemba (23), Yedlin (24), Merino (21), Hayden (22), Shelvey (25), Aarons (21), Atsu (25), Murphy (22), Perez (24),Mitrovic (23).
