Arsenal Under-18s suffered a 4-1 defeat at Crystal Palace on Tuesday morning after Wilfred Zama bagged a hat-trick.

The striker fired Palace into a third-minute lead but Jeffrey Monakana equalised in first-half stoppage time.

Zama restored the hosts' advantage shortly after the break before Liam Bellamy added a third. Zama completed his hat-trick with three minutes remaining.

Manchester United's 2-0 win at Everton means that the Red Devils won Group C, setting up a play-off semi-final with Arsenal.
