5) Arsenal – 25.6

We could have picked four different clubs in 5th spot.

Quite remarkably, Liverpool, Wolves and Brentford’s squads have the exact same average age as the Gunners.

However, we have decided to focus on Mikel Arteta’s team, who (at the time of writing), sit top of the Premier League table.

Arsenal’s starting lineup is full of talented young players, including William Saliba (23), Bukayo Saka (22) and Gabriel Martinelli (22) who have all contributed massively to the club’s title challenge this season.
