WHAT HAPPENED

Our under-23s extended their unbeaten run to six Premier League 2 games with a 1-1 draw against Tottenham Hotspur.

Jonathan Dinzeyi started at the heart of our defence against his former club, who currently top of the table, while Charlie Patino was handed his under-23s debut.

Heading into this fixture on the back of five consecutive victories, Steve Bould’s side were full of confidence and raced into an early lead with a quickly taken free-kick.

The ball dropped to Ben Cottrell inside the penalty area and he made no mistake in finding the bottom corner. The 19-year-old has now scored four goals in just 13 PL2 appearances.

But the hosts wrestled back control on the half-hour mark, and after Kion Etete headed wide from a promising position, he levelled the score with his next chance, finishing on the stretch to poke the ball past Karl Hein.

Their dominance continued following the break too, as Dane Scarlett won a penalty after drawing a foul from Tim Akinola - but his powerful strike sailed well over the bar.

We would go on to create one last chance to seal all three points, but Folarin Balogun was denied by Joshua Oluwayemi after racing through on goal.

Match report: Liverpool 4-0 Arsenal U-23s

WHAT HAPPENED

Our under-23s slipped to another defeat on Saturday as they were beaten 4-0 by Liverpool.

Coming into this game, only a point separated the two sides - but the hosts were full of confidence after a dramatic 3-2 victory over Chelsea just one week earlier.

We started on the front foot, though, and looked dangerous in transition with Reiss Nelson breaking forward at pace and squaring for Nikolaj Moller, who was unable to make contact at the final moment.

Liverpool had barely had a sight of our goal but, with a lapse in concentration from Ryan Alebiosu, we gifted possession away inside the area and Layton Stewart duly found the bottom corner.

Catalin Cirjan came close to an equaliser shortly after, rattling the post from Tolaji Bola’s cutback, but we were made to pay for our missed chances on the stroke of half-time, as Jake Cain doubled Liverpool’s advantage with a powerful strike into the top corner.

Cain then went on to score his second of the afternoon just two minutes after the restart, firing home from the edge of the area, before Ben Woodburn made it four, finishing from close range.
