Ranking all 20 Premier League clubs by minutes handed to players aged 21 and under

Chelsea pair Mason Mount and Tammy Abraham have been two of the young stars of the Premier League

'You'll never win anything with kids'.

Alan Hansen's assessment of Sir Alex Ferguson's Manchester United in August 1995 is forever etched into the folklore of English football.

Like Hansen, many thought any team eager to scoop major trophies needed copious amounts of experience and could not be reliant on youth.

But United defied the Scotsman and everyone else that season by beating Kevin Keegan's Newcastle side to the Premier League title and Everton in the FA Cup final to claim a famous double.

The kids were the catalyst for Fergie's success, but are any current teams in the Premier League following suit and giving their young talent a platform to succeed?

Well, a number of teams certainly are, with three sides already handing over 1000 minutes to players aged 21 or under in 2019/20.

Thanks to the folks over at Planet Football, you can see how all 20 sides in the Premier League rank below.
