It's a Toulouse youngster that claims top spot, however, as we take a look at the 10 best performing teenagers across Europe this past weekend. 


10. Leny Yoro (Lille) - 7.45 vs Le Havre 


Leny Yoro is widely considered to be one of the best young centre-back prospects in Europe and he again showed why in Lille's 3-0 win over Le Havre.
