Arsenal Under-18s lost a see-saw seven-goal thriller to Fulham at London Colney on Saturday.

Steve Bould’s side were 2-0 up after just five minutes with Phillip Roberts netting both times.

However, 20 minutes later, the visitors were ahead.  Omri Aitman gave them a foothold and then the striker equalised just before the quarter-hour from the penalty spot. Maumer Tankovic completed the reversal in the 25th minute.

Substitute Anthony Jeffrey equalised for Arsenal just before the hour but Daniel O’Reilly restored Fulham’s lead in the 68th minute. It would be the last goal of the game.
