Anthony Martial and Marcus Rashford are the obvious benchmark for a young striker who is trying play regularly for a premier league club.

Both players started playing for the Manchester United first team even before their 18th birthday and they have not look back ever since.

Martial and Rashford are now key players for the Red Devils, starting games and scoring regularly for Manchester United.

Rashford have 46 goals in 149 premier league appearances.

Martial on the other hand have 51 goals in same 149 appearances.

To gauge how a young premier league striker is progressing, there is no other option than to compare him with Martial and Rashford.

Both players ended last season with 17 premier league goals each for Manchester United.

Chelsea Tammy Abraham was not too far behind last season.

He scored 15 premier league goals to help the Blues finish 4th.

A lot of people were predicting the end of Frank Lampard youth revolution after Chelsea spent record sum on new players this season but Reece James, Tammy Abraham and Mason Mount are proving them wrong.

These three youngsters are now regular names in the starting lineup.

No one expected Abraham to be starting matches for Chelsea this season, after the big money acquisition of Timo Werner but the academy graduate seems to have made the striker position his own, pushing Werner to the wings.

Tammy Abraham have scored in the UEFA champions league this season but it is the premier league where he is impressing.

His goal against Newcastle means the young forward have scored 3 premier league goals this season, which is impressive for a player who was expected to feature regularly in the bench.
