15 Year-Old Ethan Nwaneri Becomes Youngest Premier League Player

Fifteen-year-old Ethan Nwaneri became the youngest player in Premier League history in Arsenal’s 3-0 win over Brentford.

The English attacking midfielder, who was born in March 2007, replaced Fabio Vieira for the Gunners in stoppage time at Brentford Community Stadium.

Aged 15 years and 181 days, Nwaneri beat the record held by Harvey Elliott.

Liverpool midfielder Elliott was 16 years and 30 days old when he played for Fulham in 2019.

Nwaneri replaced Vieira, who had scored the third goal, after 91 minutes and two seconds. He was involved for three minutes and 42 seconds before the game ended after 94 minutes and 44 seconds.

He is the first player under the age of 16 to play in the Premier League.

“We have the opportunities to bring young players on,” said Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta before the game.

We are pretty short and opportunities come when issues arise.”
