    ARSENAL’S free-scoring young guns have been in blistering form of late, netting impressive away day wins over their closest capital rivals in the process. 

    Goals from Kostas Pileas, Joe Willock, Nathan Tella and Islington’s Trae Coyle saw the club’s Under-18s come from a goal down to beat north London rivals Tottenham 4-2 on Saturday on their own turf in the Premier Academy League. 

    Meanwhile a moment of magic from Stephy Mavididi saw Arsenal’s Under-23s claim a 2-1 win over Chelsea at Stamford Bridge in Premier League Two. 

    Midfielder Reiss Nelson opened the scoring for the Gunners before substitute Charlie Wakefield equalised for the Blues. Arsenal were good value for their win, however, which was sealed in the 82nd minute when Mavididi charged through on goal before bamboozling both defender and keeper with close control and rifling home.
