Premier League title race is getting hotter every weekend. Liverpool and Chelsea have done a superb job so far to keep Manchester City close but it is clear they are already feeling the heat. Arsenal and Tottenham Hotspurs are struggling to breathe but they are not out of it just yet. Today, as we wait for another round of League matches, we want to recognize and celebrate seven youngest goals scorers in the history of the division since 1992.

Manchester United former striker Federico Macheda is a forgotten man few years after scoring that famous double against Aston Villa at Old Trafford. It was in 2008/09 season and Sir Alex Ferguson was seriously scratching his head not knowing what to do. Villa was 2-0 up and the title was going to Liverpool. Then he made the famous substitution and the rest is history. Injuries and poor form eventually pushed Macheda out of Old Trafford. The 27-year-old currently plays for Greek side Panathinaikos.
6. Andy Turner- 17 years 166 days

Tottenham Hotspur current team is one of the youngest in Premier League today. Mauricio Pochetino extended his contract at the club which means more young players will continue to get a chance in the first team. The club also gave Andy Turner a chance to become 6th youngest goalscorer in Premier League history. He netted aged 17 years and 166 days against Everton in 1992.

Arsene Wenger had a touch of gold when it comes to identifying talent and he was spot on when he convinced little known Cesc Fabregas to join him at Arsenal from Barcelona Academy La Masia.
He came and conquered, his first goal for the Gunners came at a tender age of 17 years and 114 days. When people ask why he looks tired today, they fail to realize he has played so much football already.
