Arsenal Under-18s were held to a goalless draw by Stoke City at London Colney on Saturday afternoon.

Boss Carl Laraman was forced into a series of changes from the team that had lost against Manchester United a week earlier, with Chuba Akpom called up to the first team and Gedion Zelalem out through injury.

Kaylen Hinds came into the side and went closest to giving the young Gunners victory when he volleyed over from close range after the break.

The result means the under-18s have picked up five points from their first five games of the campaign.
