Arsenal Under-18s have clinched the Academy League Group A title despite losing 3-2 at Coventry on Saturday.

Josh Ruffles netted a first-half brace for the Sky Blues but Arsenal equalised through Josh Rees and Zak Ansah after the break.

Steve Bould's side then conceded a Luke Adams strike to slip to a rare defeat.

However, Chelsea's defeat at Leicester and Crystal Palace's draw at Aston Villa mean that Arsenal cannot be caught in Group A.
