An experienced XI of the oldest players to feature in the Premier League so far this season

The Premier League enters 8th round of matches this weekend after the international break.

Left back

Ashley Young is no longer young but he has shown he's still got it, featuring regularly for Villa so far this season.

Centre backs

Thiago Silva (Chelsea 37 years)

Thiago Silva is the oldest outfield player to feature so far this season in the EPL. The Chelsea defender is ageing like fine wine and will most certainly get a contract renewal soon.

Johnny Evans (Leicester City, 33 years)

Right back

Seamus Coleman (Everton, 32 years)

Seamus Coleman continues to be an important player for Everton as he gets older.

Fernandinho (Manchester City, 36 years)

Manchester City's captain, Fernandinho is no longer a starter under Pep Guardiola but he is still a very reliable option when called upon.

Central midfielder

James Milner (Liverpool, 35 years)

James Milner has been around for so long that it almost seems as though he'll never retire. The versatile player started in the right back position in Liverpool's last game against Manchester City earlier this month.

Left midfielder

Jeffrey Schlupp (Crystal Palace, 28 years)

Jeffrey Schlupp is the youngest player in this XI at age 28.

Attacking midfielder

Adam Lallana (Brighton, 33 years)

Adam Lallana is one of the players who have helped Brighton enjoy a great start to the season and he is doing it at the age of 33.

Right winger

Aaron Lennon (Burnley, 34 years)

Aaron Lennon is another player who has been around for so long in the EPL that he has been forgotten by many.

Centre forward

Cristiano Ronaldo (Portugal, 36 years)

The current EPL Player of the Month holder is oldest forward and the second oldest outfield player in the EPL so far this season. Only Ronaldo decides when Ronaldo stops.
