Arsenal’s u18s lost their Premier League game against Fulham 2-1 on Saturday.
Marcus Agyei-Tabi grabbed an 85th minute penalty after Nathan Tella had been fouled inside the box but the goal, while giving the young Guns a glimmer of hope, was never likely to be more than a consolation with the side already two goals down at that point.
1-0 down by halftime thorough Dennis Adeniran’s powerful header after 38 minutes, Arsenal were lucky not to be two down before the break as the Cottagers missed a penalty.
They would, however, double their lead not long after the break when Stephen Humphreys found the bottom corner from a cut back.
Arsenal are in sixth place in the u18 Premier League (South Group) with 10 points from six games (P6 W3 D1 L2).
Their next game is against Spurs, who currently sit in seventh place, on Wednesday at Arsenal’s training centre. Kick-off 11am but attendance is by invitation only.
