4) Southampton. Southamptons academy has received numerous plaudits in the recent years. It's difficult to keep track of all their top flight graduates, there's so many. Luke Shaw and James Ward-Prowse have both been excellent this season. Unfortunately for the saints their youth products rarely stay at St Mary's for long.

Other teams may produce better players, but the fact is that Chelsea have so many academy graduates playing at the top levels. Mason Mount, Reece James and Andreas Christensen have all got a place in Chelsea's first team, while Billy Gilmour, Hudson-Odoi and Tammy Abraham all provide rotation options.
