MUFC ACADEMY STILL SHINES! Manchester United lead the way with academy minutes but Man City sit bottom [Sky Sports]

Almost a quarter of Manchester United playing time in 18/19 went to talent developed in their academy

More from Sky Sports about the continued success and reliance on our MUFC Academy players:

Manchester United displaced Arsenal last season as the Premier League team relying most heavily on graduates of their own academy.

United’s famed youth system produced the most players across the Premier League as a whole for the third year in succession, but the tally of minutes given to homegrown players has previously been the Gunners’ domain.

For the 2018/19 season, however, United’s academy did the double as almost a quarter of their playing time went to talent developed in Carrington.

1. Man Utd – 9334 minutes
2. Tottenham – 6887 minutes
3. Crystal Palace – 6602 minutes
4. West Ham – 6344 minutes
5. Southampton – 5866 minutes
6. Leicester – 5159 minutes
7. Arsenal – 4976 minutes
8. Huddersfield – 3771 minutes
9. Brighton – 3376 minutes
10. Fulham – 3176 minutes
11. Newcastle – 2896 minutes
12. Liverpool – 2600 minutes
13. Chelsea – 2202 minutes
14. Cardiff – 2118 minutes
15. Watford – 2070 minutes
