We scored three times in the final five minutes to complete an incredible comeback in this top-of-the-table clash against Tottenham Hotspur.
Bukayo Saka made an instant impact off the bench, scoring once and assisting our equaliser, before Ben Cottrell scored the winning goal deep into stoppage time.
However, it was the visitors who started as the stronger side, when Paris Maghoma punished us in the seventh minute with a curling finish into the bottom right corner.
Tottenham doubled their lead when Harvey White converted a penalty, but just before the break Luis Binks was shown a straight red card for an altercation with Mark McGuinness, changing the dynamic of the game.
The introduction of Xavier Amaechi and Saka in the second half proved to be particularly influential, with the latter kickstarting our comeback in the 86th minute with a deflected finish from a tight angle.
The 17-year-old then went on to play a vital role in our equaliser. After losing his marker on the left wing with a deft first touch, Saka drilled a dangerous delivery across the face of goal, forcing Kodi Lyons-Foster to inadvertently bundle the ball into his own net.
But the drama was far from over. We continued to push forward in search of all three points, and in the 91st minute we grabbed our reward when a loose ball fell to the feet of Cottrell inside the area, who fired home from close range to secure our ninth consecutive victory in the U-18 Premier League.
