The Premier League's 25 youngest goalscorers this season

West Ham United v Arsenal FC - Premier League

The rough and tumble of the Premier League can make or break young players.

At the moment, it seems to be the latter for Arsenal's Gabriel Martinelli, who opened his account in England's top division with a fine equaliser at West Ham United on Monday night.

Having already impressed in the Carabao Cup and Europa League, the Brazilian rewarded interim manager Freddie Ljungberg for his show of faith amidst Arsenal's struggles.

At just 18 years old, it's clear that Arsenal have themselves a phenomenal talent and his strike in east London solidified him as the second youngest scorer in the competition this year.

Pretty impressive going, but it got us wondering which players are rubbing shoulders with the Arsenal man.

Let's put some respect on Rashford's name. He's barely 21 years old.

Just because he's been in the United first-team for approaching four seasons, it doesn't mean that he should be criticised at the first opportunity and it thankfully seems as though the tide is turning.

Rashford needs just one strike to make 2019/20 his most prolific season ever and hopefully we can see him reaching that magic 20-goal mark in seasons to come.

Plus, the list shows that United should be given a round of applause in general, because so many of their young players have rewarded Ole Gunnar Solskjaer for their faith.

As for the man who sparked this list to start with: it's about time Martinelli was considered one of the planet's best young stars, because it's no wonder Jurgen Klopp called him a 'talent of the century.'

In my opinion, his youthful energy could be the key to turning around Arsenal's fortunes in games to come and let his West Ham performance serve as evidence.

But if you take nothing else away from this list, just be sure to temper your criticisms whenever one of them is playing because - and I'm guilty too - it's easy to forget just how up-and-coming they are.
