The best Premier League player this season for every age from 18-36, according to stats

AFC Bournemouth v Manchester City - Premier League

We're just over a third through the Premier League season and Liverpool currently lead the way.

The Reds have accumulated 37 points from their 13 games and are in prime position to end their wait for a Premier League title.

We're now a few months into the season, meaning players have had enough time to make their mark.

So, with that in mind, who have been the best players this season for every age from 18-36?

We've decided to take a look at stats compiled by WhoScored.com in order to answer that question.

Players need to have featured in at least five games to be included.

18. Mason Greenwood - 6.13

There aren't many 18-year-old's playing in England's top tier, so Greenwood doesn't have too much competition.

But he has shown in flashes that he could be a very good player in years to come.

The youngster netted his first Premier League goal against Sheffield United last weekend.

19. Callum Hudson-Odoi - 6.64

Hudson-Odoi recently got back in the Chelsea side after recovering from a long-term injury.

The youngster has appeared six times for his side this season, recording three assists.

Choosing to stay at Chelsea and play under Frank Lampard appears to have been a wise decision.

20. Dwight McNeil - 7.12

Sean Dyche doesn't give youngsters at Burnley much game time at all - with the exception of McNeil.

The 20-year-old has blossomed into a great player for The Clarets.

McNeil has statically been Burnley's second best player this year with one goal and four assists to his name after 13 games.

21. Trent Alexander-Arnold 22.

Alexander-Arnold is just 21 years old but is arguably already the best right-back in the world.

The youngster has his deficiencies in defence but he is brilliant going forward.

He's helped Liverpool to just two clean sheets this season but has contributed with one goal and three assists.

22. Wilfried Ndidi - 7.64

Leicester have been brilliant this season and Ndidi has been a big part in their success.

His defensive work is paramount to the club's success and he's also contributed with two goals.

Statistically, he's been the fourth best player in the league this season. A move to one of the biggest clubs in the world seems on the horizon.

23. James Maddison - 7.70

The second of four Leicester players that make the list.

According to stats, Maddison has been Leicester's best player this season and the third best of all Premier League players.

He's been awarded Man of the Match by WhoScored in four different games, with four goals and two assists.

24. Raheem Sterling - 7.55

Sterling has gone off the boil slightly in the Premier League.

He started the campaign on fire, with five goals from his opening three games. Since then he's added just two goals and one assist.

But Sterling remains one of the league's best players and is again in the running to be crowned Player of the Year.

He just pipped Jack Grealish for best 24-year-old in the league.

25. Bernardo Silva - 7.57

Silva has continued his brilliant from from last campaign.

Despite making just eight starts, he's recorded five goals, including a hat-trick against Watford, as well as two assists.

He just makes the list ahead of Aston Villa's John McGinn and Liverpool's Andy Robertson.

26. Ricardo Pereira - 7.64

Pereira has emerged into one of the best full-backs in the league after joining permanently from Porto last year.

The Portuguese defender has played every minute so far this season, with Leicester keeping six clean sheets in the process.

He's also chipped in with two goals.

Leicester City v Arsenal FC - Premier League

27. Sadio Mane - 7.50

Surprisingly, Mane is just the second of two Liverpool players that make the list.

The Senegalese international has been his side's best player this season, but is only statistically the eighth best in the league.

His eight goals in four assists sees him ranked the best 27-year-old, just ahead of Liverpool teammate Mohamed Salah.

28. Kevin De Bruyne - 7.84

In many people's eyes, De Bruyne has been the best player in the league this season and the statistics back that up.

The Belgian midfielder has recorded a league high nine assists, while also bagging three goals of his own.

Interestingly, according to stats the second best player in England's top tier this season has also been a 28-year-old: Riyad Mahrez.

29. Enda Stevens - 6.95

Sheffield United have surprised everyone with their discipline in defence this season.

They've already kept five clean sheets this season, with Stevens impressing at left wing-back.

It's been a rapid rise for the Irishman, who was playing in League Two with Portsmouth just two years ago.

30. Ben Mee - 6.99

Mee and Cesar Azpilicueta are actually tied with a rating of 6.99, but Mee gets the nod given he's played more minutes this season.

The English defender has formed a solid partnership with James Tarkowski at the heart of Burnley's defence.

Don't completely rule out an England call-up in the not too distant future.

31. Sergio Aguero - 7.32

Willian has had a superb season and looks resurgent under Lampard, but Aguero just edges him out according to the stats.

The Argentinian was on fire to start the season as he notched eight goals in six games.

The goals have dried out in recent times, though, with just one goal since. He's now set for a spell on the sidelines after picking up an injury against Chelsea.

32. Jamie Vardy - 7.46

Vardy is now approaching the twilight of his career but he's never been better than he is now.

He turns 33 in January but still possesses pace that will frighten any defender in the world.

He currently tops the Premier League scoring charts with 12 goals in 13 games.

Should he continue this form, Gareth Southgate may be tempted to coax him out of international retirement for Euro 2020.

33. David Silva - 7.25

Silva remains one of the best players in the Premier League.

The Spaniard has notched three goals and five assists in despite making just 10 starts this season.

He's set to leave Man City after 10 years at the club next summer. He will be missed.

34. Fernandinho - 6.97

There aren't too many players playing in the Premier League over the age of 34, so props to the three men below.

The Brazilian has been a great servant for Man City. He's been filling in at an unnatural position of centre-back recently and has performed admirably.

35. Jose Holebas - 6.55

Holebas has shown his attacking ability in years gone by but isn't exactly brilliant in defence.

36. Ben Foster - 6.44

Another Watford player?!

Watford had one of the leakiest defences in the league after seven games, where they conceded 20 goals in seven games.

But they have improved in recent times. They've conceded just six goals since then, with Foster keeping three clean sheets in that time.

They'll need him to keep up his form if they are to haul their way out of relegation trouble.

Some big players miss out on the list. 

Tammy Abraham (22), Roberto Firmino (28), Mohamed Salah (27) and Harry Kane (26) are just a few big names that haven't been the best player from their age.

It's also interesting that there are as many Watford players on the list as Liverpool players.

Of course, that may all change by the end of the season...
