Manchester City lowered the age profile of their team by nearly two years – and still thrashed West Ham 5-0 .

The degree of planning involved in replacing current stars with younger men, illustrates their deadly intentions to dominate the Premier League for the next five years and beyond.

That age profile of 25.8 made City the sixth youngest starting XI in the Premier League at the weekend – with Manchester United, interestingly, the youngest on 24.6 years.



So City could end the season with an average age of 24.2 years, another triumph for their long-term planning.

The team that finished the last league season had an average age of 27.5, increased considerably by the fact Vincent Kompany and Ilkay Gundogan rather than 25-year-old John Stones and 23-year-old Rodri .

That age profile makes sense as a peak age for a footballer, as it indicates a healthy mixture of experience and youthful vigour.

The peak age for a footballer is said to be 27.5, the average age of every World Cup winner in history.
