Arsenal Under-18s saw their five-game unbeaten run come to an end as they were swept aside by Reading on Saturday.

Uche Ikpeazu gave the home side the lead after 28 minutes, and doubled his tally six minutes before half time.

Ikpeazu made the game safe by completing his hat-trick in the 56th minute as Pat Holland’s side, missing top scorer Jon Toral, lost for just the second time this season.
