If Arsenal lift the FA Youth Cup this season, the first man to get his hands on the famous old trophy will be Jay Emmanuel-Thomas.

The 18-year-old has captained Steve Bould’s team to the last eight of the competition but tonight they face perhaps their biggest test yet - a North London derby at White Hart Lane.

Subscribers can now watch an exclusive interview with Jay. He discusses:

  • what winning the trophy would mean to him
  • beating Villa, Wolves and Sunderland
  • the Tottenham players he knows
  • the reasons why Arsenal can go all the way
  • how Reserve team football helps the Under-18s
  • the influence of Under-18s manager Steve Bould
  • emulating the class of 2001

Subscribers can watch this exclusive video now.
