Arsenal Under-18s fell to a narrow 2-1 defeat away to Aston Villa Under-18s on Saturday.
Coach Carl Laraman made three changes from the team that drew with Bolton. Leander Siemann, Steffi Mavididi and Tyrell Robinson all came into the side.
Thomas Strain headed the hosts into the lead after 10 minutes at Bodymoor heath. But Mavididi eqaulised three minutes before half-time after Renny Smith's shot deflected in off the forward.
Mavididi had the chance to put the Gunners ahead from the spot but his effort cannoned off the post and away to safety.
And Arsenal were left to rue that missed opportunity in the 70th minute when a fine Jerell Stellars strike gave Tom McAndrew's side the three points.
