After a long international break, Premier League Talent Scout is back to highlight the best young performers from this weekend's EPL action. As always, you can catch up with Matchday 7's action in the previous edition, here.
As a reminder for those of you who still aren't regular followers of PLTS, "young players" mainly entails U-21 players, though U-23 players with less than five seasons of true professional experience can make the occasional appearance as well.
In an attempt to increase the exposure of PLTS, I've decided to experiment with moving PLTS from its usual Thursday date to Monday. If you are strongly in favor or against this move, feel free to let me know in the comments section below.
Also, in response to the comments received last week, I've decided to set a cap of five on the number of appearances a player can make on PLTS.
The only player who has currently made that number of appearances is Phil Jones, and so he won't be included on any PLTS top five lists for the rest of the season.
There are, however, a number of other players, like Chris Smalling, Mario Balotelli, Daniel Sturridge and Danny Welbeck, who have all made multiple appearances on PLTS, and will also be removed from the list once they hit five appearances.
With all the logistics out of the way, let's get right into the action and take a look at the most impressive young players in the EPL from this weekend.
