Arsenal Under-18s made an impressive start to the new season with a 3-1 win over London rivals Chelsea at Shenley on Saturday.
Lee Sawyer had given the visitors the lead on four minutes but Dutchman Nacer Barazite, who scored for the first team against Barnet in pre-season, restored parity 20 minutes in.

The sides went in level at the break but it took midfielder Mark Randall just three minutes to put the young Gunners in front.

Randall, who travelled to Austria for the first team's pre-season training camp last month, doubled his tally on the hour-mark to wrap up all three points.

Steve Bould's side, who went 19 games unbeaten at the beginning of the 2006/07 campaign, will travel to Charlton Athletic on Saturday.
