Making a List: Youngest Americans in EPL

Matt Miazga, who debuted for Chelsea on Saturday at the age of 20, is the sixth youngest American to play in the EPL. But an early start has not been an indicator of long-term success. Of the 10 youngest Americans in the EPL, only two played 10 or more games with their first team: Jozy Altidore (who lasted one season at Hull City) and Eric Lichaj (32 games at Aston Villa before being released in 2013).
