Arsenal Under 18s slipped to their second successive defeat on Saturday as they were beaten 5-3 at Leicester.

Steve Bould's side took the lead in the 29th minute through Jack Jebb, before Anthony Jeffrey added a second nine minutes later.

The Foxes halved their deficit through Liam Moore just after half time, and the same player levelled matters in the 57th minute from the penalty spot.

A Chuba Akpom own goal made it 3-2 to Leicester, before strikes from Tom Hopper and Harry Panayiotou put the hosts out of sight.

Serge Gnabry scored late on, but there was to be no late fightback and the Gunners left empty handed.
