Arsenal Under-18s


Fonte 5, Lansbury 53, Gibbs 70, Simpson 80

Chelsea Under-18s


Steve Bould's Under-18s ensured Tottenham weren't the only London side to suffer defeat at the hands of Arsenal this weekend.

The young Gunners put the disappointment of their recent draw at Charlton behind them and continued their unbeaten start to the season with a 4-1 rout of Chelsea at Shenley on Saturday.

Portuguese striker Rui Fonte opened the scoring for the home side after just five minutes before second-half strikes from Henri Lansbury, Kieran Gibbs and Jay Simpson added emphasis to the scoreline.
