The Arsenal u18 team beat Norwich u18s 2-0 to mark their first win of the new campaign.
Goals from Reiss Nelson and Eddie Nketiah brought the Gunners up to sixth place in the Barclays U18 Premier League. Apart from Reading, the others teams above us have played two fixtures already.
Nelson’s goal was the result of a neat little passing move from a free kick. His finish was smart, composed and clinical.
Nketiah’s, on the other hand, was a typical poacher’s goal. Arsenal were on the counter, which Norwich managed to intercept, but Harry Donovan out-muscled the centre-back to win the ball back just outside their area. He had a shot, which was saved, but lying in wait was Nketiah to slot it home.
