Born on April 1, 2000, the Liverpool striker is treated as one of the greatest talents of the new English generation. In 2014, Brewster was part of Chelsea’s base categories when he moved to Liverpool the following year. The reason, Looking for more chances in the Under-23. The youngest striker’s career culminated in the Under-17 World Cup in 2017. In addition to the title with England, he finished the competition scoring eight goals, including two hat tricks – one against Brazil. At the end of the competition, he claimed two individual prizes, gold boot for being top scorer and bronze ball as the third best player of the tournament. After speculation with Borussia Monchengladbach, Brewster signed his first professional contract with Liverpool in June 2018. However, this season the player suffered an injury and is still injured. But it’s a matter of time for Brewster to win more chances in the main cast. In addition to having a giant talent, has the support of Jurgen Klopp and the charisma of the fans.
4. Callum Hudson-Odoi

The 18-year-old is simply Chelsea’s biggest revelation in recent years, and probably from all over England – although the dispute with Jadon Sancho is questionable. The English left wing made his professional debut for the Blues last season and continues developing in the current day, mainly playing in games of the Europa League. Hudson-Odoi has participated in four games in this European competition, scoring a goal and giving an assist. However, the minutes offered to the young talent are still far below the required. With Bayern Munich about to offer 40 million pounds for the player, it is very likely that the London revelation will follow the footsteps of Sancho and Reiss Nelson. Callum Hudson-Odoi is specialized in speed dribbling, causing headaches to the opposing defensive system. The young extreme is almost unstoppable with the ball at his feet and will probably develop his ability better in coming years.
3. Emile Smith Rowe

One more young England-tipped player, Smith Rowe (as well as Hudson-Odoi) has played many minutes this season in domestic and international competitions. For the League Cup, the promise of Arsenal played two games and scored a goal. In the Europa League, Rowe has played four games and rocked the net twice. Smith Rowe has the ability to play on both sides of the field without losing the intensity and offensive features. He is an agile sprinter, who sets off the opponent constantly. But still, he contributes in the first combat in the defensive phase. The Englishman was part of the U 17 team that won the World Cup in India in 2017 and is currently a member of the Under-19 squad of the Three Lions.
2. Morgan Gibbs-White

Gibbs-White is a very good midfielder on the pass, and he has a good ability to dribble, so he can “open” the field to find the best option. The 18-year-old Englishman has played in 15 Premier League games (three as a starter), giving a scoring assist. It’s 28 minutes per game, a number that seems faint at first, but considering the almost unchanging pattern of Nuno Espirito Santo’s first eleven, Gibbs-White has played frequently. Morgan has been evolving well since last season when he played in 13 championship games and is a good choice between reserves. In this term, he seems to have become the talisman of the Portuguese coach. Being summoned constantly by England under-19, he has already added three matches with the national shirt.
1. Angel Gomes

Angel Gomes has an undisputed talent and a gigantic growth margin. Gomes is the type of player who has a basic dominance in almost every offensive attribute – no wonder, he can play as an attacking midfielder, half-offensive and even on the left-wing. Angel has a differentiated view of the game, which contributes to his characteristic of arming the moves, either from below or from above. His talent for beating fouls also draws attention. For the Premier League Division 2, Gomes has participated in 11 games and scored five goals. The young man from Manchester United is one more who was part of the under-17 cast that was world champion in India. He has played in one match for the English U19 team. And from that, Gomes can establish himself more and more and reach his maximum potential.
