Arsenal’s u23 clash against Manchester United has been moved to a new date and will now take place the day after it was originally scheduled.
Arsenal’s u23s were set to welcome Manchester United on Friday 16 October but the game has now been moved to Saturday 17 October with a 2pm kick-off at Boreham Wood.
Arsenal’s u23s got their Premier League 2 campaign off to a poor start at the weekend when they lost at home to Southampton 2-4.
By the time they play United in mid-October, the u23s will also have played against Brighton, Spurs, and Chelsea in a run of fixtures that would give even the seniors a serious stress-test.
Arsenal u23 lineup vs Southampton
Macey; Alebiosu, Oyegoke, McGuinness, Bola; Azeez, Olayinka, Cottrell; Cirjan, Balogun, Lewis.
Oulad M’Hand (for Cirjan, 58), Akinola (for Alebiosu, 63), Hillson, McEneff (for Oyegoke, 77), Ogungbo
