Premier League clubs give least minutes to under-21 players - study

Monaco gave the most minutes to under-21 players this season, including 19-year-old Anthony Martial, centre.

Premier League teams used the smallest percentage of players under age 21 among Europe's five biggest leagues this season, according to a study.
