Premier League Week One Empty Premier League Week One

on Tue 13 Aug 2019, 9:42 am
From The Premier League

On the Premier League's opening weekend, 22 English starters featured for last season's top six.

Marcus Rashford's double for Manchester United capped a successful opening Premier League weekend for English talents at last season's top-six clubs.

The striker was one of 22 English players who started for Man Utd, Arsenal, Liverpool, Manchester City, Tottenham Hotspur and Chelsea.

That is the highest total of English starters at those clubs since 2016/17. All 22 were under 30 years of age, with an average of 23 years and 351 days.

That included two Arsenal teenagers, Reiss Nelson and Joe Willock, who played in the 1-0 win at Newcastle United.

There was also a Premier League debutant in Mason Mount, who came through the Chelsea Academy alongside fellow first-team starter Tammy Abraham.

Seven strikes
Rashford's double contributed to seven goals by English players at those clubs in Matchweek 1, with Raheem Sterling netting a hat-trick in Man City's 5-0 triumph at West Ham United and Harry Kane clinching a win for Spurs over Aston Villa with a late double.

That total is the most by English players at those clubs in a Matchweek 1 since 26 December 2017, when Sterling and Kane contributed four of the nine goals netted by English top-six players.

Across the 2019/20 fixtures, 83 English players were among the 220 starters, the highest number on an opening weekend since 85 Englishmen started on Matchweek 1 of 2010/11.

Burnley and Southampton led the way with seven English players apiece at Turf Moor.
