In the hours before Reece Oxford made his Barclays Premier League debut against Arsenal, the West Ham teenager's name was trending on Twitter.
The 16-year-old's selection in the starting XI saw users on the social media website discuss what they were doing at that age, while others pointed out he was not even born until after France '98.
Oxford became the seventh-youngest player in Premier League history at the age of 16 years and 237 days on Sunday, and held his own in a midfield packed with talent at the Emirates Stadium.
