Man Utd in line to be our youngest team in Premier League history
United currently have the youngest average age in the division, 24.8 years, and the last time we were top in this respect came in that 1995/96 term, when it was shared with Aston Villa as both sides recorded figures of 25.7. The following year, we were in second spot with Villa again at the summit.
The Reds were the joint-third youngest team in 2014/15, when Louis van Gaal was in charge, and several youngsters such as Tyler Blackett, Paddy McNair, Adnan Januzaj and James Wilson were involved.
The eldest selection, on average, was in 2010/11, when it was over 28 (28.2) for the only time in the Premier League era. This placed us 19th overall that season in that respect but the experienced side did the business on the pitch by winning the league and reaching the Champions League final. Edwin van der Sar, Patrice Evra, Rio Ferdinand, Nemanja Vidic and Giggs were among the chief contributors.
