Jesse Lingard is 25. I thought he was four or five years younger.

He did seem to go downhill fast, after getting his free bus pass..

Josh Cullen is 22. Looks about 14 and it seems like he's only just started playing.

Zavon Hines is 29. That makes me feel old. I still think of him as not long out of our youth system for some reason.

Players like Mark Noble and Kevin Nolan have been around so long that people thought they were older than they were and used the 'legs have gone' tag to describe them. Their legs had never really gone, certainly not in Nobles case, he's 30 ffs!
