Arsenal Under-18s came back from 2-0 down to seal a last-minute victory in a seven-goal thriller at Chelsea on Saturday.

After the heroic performance at Tottenham on Thursday, Steve Bould's boys came back down to earth with a bump in this London derby. Chelsea striker Jacopo Sala scored midway through the half and four minutes before half-time to see them staring at a rare defeat.

However Jonas Rasmussen brought them back into the game a minute after the restart and Benik Afobe equalised after 53 minutes. On the hour, Rhys Murphy seemed to have completed a remarkable comeback when he scored from the spot.

But Chelsea striker Joshua McEahon levelled the game again three minutes from the end.

Yet, as at White Hart Lane, Bould's side won the game late when Luke Freeman squeezed home a winner in the final minute.
