Aston Villa





Under-18s squandered a two-goal lead against Aston Villa and had to settle for a draw at the Bodymoor Heath Training Ground on Saturday.

Fran Merida was a major influence in central midfield, scoring twice in the first half to give Steve Bould's men the advantage before Villa hit back after the break.

The young Gunners remain unbeaten after two games of the Academy League season following their opening-day victory at Derby.
