2. Stephen Carr (17 years, 28 days)

Almost a month after his 18th birthday, Tottenham youngster Stephen Carr was given his Premier League debut. The 17-year-old started the match against Ipswich Town in a defence which consisted of Sol Campbell, Gary Mabbutt, Steve Sedgley, Colin Calderwood and himself. Although he only played the first-half, it was an entertaining game which finished 2-2.

Carr went onto have an incredible career with Spurs, playing for over a decade and amassing over 200 league appearances for the club. Eventually, in 2003, Carr made the switch to Newcastle United and played there for four years, matching the same stint at Birmingham City, where he eventually retired.

Carr was an example of a defender who just did his job. No complaining, he did what was required. Primarily a right-back, he was known to get involved in other defensive positions including at full-back. Playing for three clubs, his most memorable stint was at Spurs, winning the Football League Cup.
