Arsenal’s youth stars have scored plenty of goals this season, but let’s have a look at our top five for the campaign.
5 – Sam Greenwood vs Swansea City – U18 Premier League. Greenwood is a bit of a set-piece specialist, and his effort against Swansea was the pick of the bunch, curling into the top corner from distance.
4 – Bukayo Saka vs Tottenham Hotspur – FA Youth Cup. A goal against Spurs is always one to remember, but when it’s to put your team 5-2 up and eliminate your local rivals from the Youth Cup it’s that much more special. Saka’s little chip and powerful strike into the top corner at the near post comes in at fourth.
3 – Miguel Azeez vs Chelsea – U16 Premier League Cup final. With Arsenal behind and in need of a goal, their star players combined to pull one back. First, Yunus Musah skillfully wrong-footed a Chelsea man, before Azeez fired into the net from distance.
2 – Bukayo Saka vs Portsmouth – EFL Trophy. Facing a senior Portsmouth side in the EFL Trophy, Saka made his mark with a dart infield followed by an arrowed finish into the top corner. What made it even better was that he was using his weak foot.
1 – Tyreece John-Jules vs Leicester City – U18 Premier League. Matt Smith played the pass of the season in the build-up to this goal, beating almost the entire Leicester team with one ball. Through one-on-one, John-Jules added some style with a fake shot, before rounding the keeper and passing into an empty net.
