With only eight games left to go in the Premier League season, many youngster have grown in maturity throughout the campaign.  

Here's a team made up of players aged 22-years-old or below. You may be surprised to see who made it:

Goalkeeper: Wojiech Szcesny | Arsenal  

You may be wondering how a player who has been mostly disappointing this year could make the cut. The rather shocking truth is, there is a shortage of young up-and-coming keepers in the Premiership.

Right-back: Rafael | Manchester United 

The young Brazilian had failed to be a consistent starter for the Red Devils until this year. However, when given the opportunity this season he shined, showing his attacking prowess and causing headaches for opposing fullbacks.

Centre-back: Steven Caulker | Tottenham Hotspur  

After an impressive loan spell at Swansea City last year, the young English centre-back managed to break into the first team at White Hart Lane. Although he has been forced into a rotation that hasn't let him start every game, his performances when starting have caught the eye of non Spurs fans.

Centre-back: Matija Nastasic | Manchester City

Having joined the current Premier League champions for £12 million last summer and failing to cement a first team spot, Nastasic looked as if he was about to join the long list of expensive players who have failed at the Citizens. However, this season he forced Joleon Lesoctt out the team and has continued to get improve.

Left-back: Ben Davies | Swansea City

The welsh Left back came out of nowhere for the Swans this year performing admirably at only 19-years-old This was a tough one. Other options included, Fabio and Davide Santon but I went for the player I felt had the most potential in Davies.

Right-midfield: Chelsea | Victor Moses

The former Wigan winger has impressed in his rotational role at Chelsea but has been overshadowed by the success of other young attacking players on the team such as Eden Hazard and Oscar.

Centre-midfield: Oscar | Chelsea  

Oscar has faced adversity this season but has fought through to provide the Blues with results and hope for the future. He looks a real talent and has a bright future. 

Centre-midfield: Jack Wilshire | Arsenal

Wilshire is always going to be compared to Lampard and Gerrard but overall brings a very different style and is probably England’s best hope for future success.

Left-midfield: Eden Hazard | Chelsea

Although his first year in English football has been somewhat inconsistent and marred by an off-the-field incident Eden has started to justify the huge £35.3 million the Blues shovelled out for him with some world class play.

Striker: Romelu Lukaku | West Brom 

Lukaku is a powerful target man who knows how to find the back of the net. With over double figures in goals this season he has been invaluable to his side. 

Striker: Christian Benteke | Aston Villa

Another powerful, strong striker who has not been goal shy this season. Benteke has had a huge influence on his club and if Villa are to survive, they can thank their star striker.
