Angel Gomes(L) and Phil Foden(R) have become widely recognised talents due to their performances

The English Premier League has some of the best talents in world football, and Premier League clubs spend a lot of money in their youth systems to identify young talents and nurture them.

Players like Ryan Giggs, Paul Scholes, Frank Lampard, and Steven Gerrard were some of the most successful products of the English youth system. England's U-17 World Cup success in India was undeniably the result of great youth development infrastructure in England.

Young players from across the globe prefer to continue their development in some of these great academies

Let's see who makes the cut to the best Premier League teenage XI at the moment:

Formation: 4-3-3

NOTE: Some of these players haven't yet made their Premier League debut, but are expected to do so in the near future.

The hero for England in the 2017 U-17 World Cup in India, Manchester City’s goalkeeper Curtis Anderson played a key role in England's World Cup triumph. He was the key in England's penalty shootout win over Japan in the quarter-finals.

He currently plays for Manchester City's U-18 team and one of the best teen goalkeepers in the country. At only 17, he is tall, quick and has a good pair of hands. He anticipates well and has an exceptional positioning awareness. He himself is a spot-kick taker and that helps in understanding the mind of strikers.

He is still a few years away from the first team but has all the qualities to be a great keeper, and is undoubtedly a perfect candidate to stand between the sticks.
