Had this list been compiled about six months ago, then Raheem Sterling would have featured in the top 10, but the way in which the Liverpool youngster’s game has improved recently means that he deservedly takes the top spot.
His transformation from speedy winger to gifted and devastating No. 10 has to be the most thrilling thing about the English game at the moment. Sterling was one of the few bright sparks to emerge from the awful World Cup campaign that the Three Lions experienced under Roy Hodgson.
Prior to going to Brazil, Sterling was arguably the inspiration behind the closing weeks of Liverpool's unlikely quest for the title too, and he'll be a key figure in the new season following the departure of Luis Suarez.
No teenager is as important to an elite club as Sterling is to Liverpool right now, and for that alone he takes the honours of being the most exciting teenager in the world.
