Premier League Youngest Debuts Before Ethan Nwaneri, Where Are They Now?

Ethan Nwaneri set the record for the youngest debutant in Premier League history. The Arsenal player made his debut at the age of 15 years, five months and 28 days.

Nwaneri made his debut in the Premier League when Arsenal played against Brentford in week 7. At that time Nwaneri came on to replace Fabio Vieira in second-half injury time.

In that match, Arsenal were able to beat Brentford with a landslide score of 3-0. The victory is also an additional gift for the record debutant Nwaneri in the Premier League.

Nwaneri's record also beats the previous player record held by Liverpool's Harvey Elliott. Along with Elliot, here are the four youngest Premier League debutants.

Aaron Lennon

Former England striker, Aaron Lennon, is in the top five of the Premier League's youngest debutants. Lennon made his Premier League debut at the age of 16 years, four months and seven days.

Lennon made his debut with Leeds United in the 2003/2004 Premier League season. At that time, Leeds United visited Tottenham Hotspur's cage in Week 2 of the Premier League.

Lennon came on to replace Mark Viduka in the 77th minute. However, Lennon had to be willing to make his debut in the Premier League ended with Leeds United's 2-1 defeat of Spurs.

Two seasons later, Lennon actually joined the Spurs. Lennon has also been a player for Everton and Burnley before finally running out of contract this season.

Izzy Brown

Izzy Brown occupies the position of the four youngest debutants in the Premier League. The Peterborough-born player made his debut at the age of 16 years, three months and 27 days.

Brown made his debut with West Bromwich Albion. Brown was introduced in the 86th minute when West Bromwich Albion surrendered 3-2 to Wigan Athletic.

After making his debut, Brown's career was quite floating with frequent team changes. Chelsea and Leeds United have been recorded as having played for Brown.

Currently, Brown, who is still 25 years old, is on a free transfer. Previously Brown played for the Championship team, Preston North End for one season.

Matthew Briggs

Guiana national player Matthew Briggs became the third youngest debutant in the Premier League. Briggs played his first Premier League game at the age of 16 years, two months and seven days.

Briggs made his debut with Fulham in the 2007/2008 season. At that time, Briggs entered in the 77th minute to replace Moritz Volz.

However, Briggs' football career actually declined after making his debut in the Premier League. Briggs passed by in the Championship until he had several times not having a club to play with. Briggs, who is currently 31 years old, is recorded as playing for Gasport Borough.

Harvey Elliott

The descent of Ethan Nwaneri during Arsenal's match against Brentford broke Harvey Elliott's youngest debutant record. This Liverpool player has three seasons holding the Premier League's youngest debutant title.

Elliott made his debut in the 2019/2020 season while still in Fulham uniform. Elliott played his first Premier League game at the age of 16 years and one month.

Elliott's football career was much better than his previous debutant. After playing for Fulham, Elliot was recruited by Liverpool in the 2019/2020 season.

Elliott has now played 29 games for Liverpool. The injury storm that hit Liverpool this season became an event for Elliott to show off.
