The Teams With the Average Youngest Age in the Premier League

aged The Teams With the Average Youngest Age in the Premier League

Which club has the youngest average age in the Premier League? And vice-versa, which club has the oldest average age? The answers may surprise you.

First, the club with the oldest average is the one that sits at the very bottom of the league — Queens Park Rangers, where the average age is 28. Perhaps you could draw a correlation between the age of the squad and the team’s poor performances this season, where Harry Redknapp’s side has seemed to lack the gas in the second half of matches to turn draws into wins.

Second, the team that has the youngest average age is not Aston Villa, but it is in fact Liverpool. The average age of the Liverpool squad is 23.22 years. The young age can be seen as a positive in that the quality of the team should increase as the footballers get more experienced. At the same time, the young age of the squad could be seen as a negative as players will learn on the job.

Looking at the data, what are some of the interesting observations that you see? Share them in the comments section below.
