5. Luke Shaw

Luke Shaw deserves to be on this list, given his hugely impressive performances as Southampton’s first choice left-back, despite the fact that he is only 18-years-old.

The academy graduate only made his Premier League debut last season, but has so far played in 32 of the club’s league games.

Not only is Shaw defensively solid, he is also brilliant going forward, and has attracted serious attention from Manchester United and Chelsea.

Additionally, he has caught the eye of England manager Roy Hodgson and is in with a chance of making it in the World Cup squad, despite fierce competition at left-back.
