Man Utd ace Greenwood named second best teenager with Arsenal gem Saka in top 10

Manchester United starlet Mason Greenwood has been named the second best teenager in world football, with Arsenal ace Bukayo Saka also featuring in the top 10.

Greenwood, 19, has made a flying start to the new Premier League season, getting on the scoresheet in United's first two outings against Leeds and Southampton.

He is widely considered one of the most promising young talents in the English top flight, having scored 29 goals over the previous two seasons for United.

And according to the CIES Football Observatory, there is only one teenager better than the Red Devils forward in world football.

The stats experts at CIES, a research group within the International Centre for Sports Studies, have ranked the top 100 teenagers on the planet based on experience and goal contributions.

It is Barcelona star Pedri who sits at the top of the pile, with the 18-year-old making 52 appearances for Ronald Koeman's side last season.

Ajax's Ryan Gravenberch and Fluminense's Matheus Martinelli are ranked as the fourth and fifth best teenagers in the world, sitting in front of another Sporting ace, Gonzalo Inacio, in sixth.

Saka then features in seventh place after racking up 2,470 minutes for Arsenal so far in 2021.

Liverpool Montevideo's Fabricio Diaz, Rennes' Jeremy Doku and Borussia Dortmund's England midfielder Jude Bellingham complete the top 10.

Only three other Premier League players make it into the top 100, with Watford's Joao Pedro, Southampton's Armando Broja, Chelsea's loanee who spent time at Vitesse Arnhem earlier this year, and Wolves' Fabio Silva included in 37th, 40th and 51st place respectively.
