The Premier League is developing an impressive stable of elite youngsters. When a right-back and a goalkeeper were named, it marked an interesting turn in English football history. And with the investment increasingly being put in these promising youngsters, the days and years ahead will be an exciting period for the game. Let’s take a look at some of the Rising Stars.

The 18-year-old had a great season on loan at Blackburn Rovers in the Championship last season (seven goals and 11 assists) and is ready for regular Premier League minutes. Jurgen Klopp has raved about Elliott’s displays and improved maturity and physicality in preseason and the talent of the former Fulham academy star is undoubted. The England youth international has a bright future and you’d expect him to get regular minutes off the bench ahead of Xherdan Shaqiri, Takumi Minamino and Divock Origi this season in the wide attacking areas he prefers to play in. He has also played in a midfield three in a more central role in preseason and Klopp could deploy him there after losing Wijnaldum and the likes of Naby Keita and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain having long-term injury problems.

Yet another young player who left the Chelsea setup permanently this summer in search of regular action in the Premier League (Livramento, Lewis Bate and Dynel Simeu followed the trend set by Tariq Lamptey) and Guehi, 21, has been developing nicely on loan at Swansea City in the Championship in recent seasons. The talented center back won the U17 World Cup with England and is a real leader at the back as well as being comfortable in possession. Palace are putting faith in young players under new manager Patrick Vieira and Guehi will play regularly this season. Everything he’s showed so far suggests he’s up for the challenge.

Scoring regularly at youth level does not always translate into goals in senior football. However, the top scorer in last season’s Premier League Development Division 1 will certainly fancy his chances of lighting up the Riverside in future years. It’s an optimism shared by the coaching staff and fans too. (Source: footballwhispers.com)
