Arsenal Under-18s slipped to their third defeat in succession after they were hit for six by West Bromwich Albion.
Ryan Pace gave the home side the lead in the early stages, before Jordan Brown hauled Steve Gatting’s team level after 19 minutes.
Rees Wedderburn restored West Brom’s advantage on the stroke of half time, before the hosts scored three times in a crazy four-minute spell at the start of the second period to effectively put the game to bed.
Ainsley Maitland-Niles reduced the arrears with 15 minutes to play, but substitute Ged Oldnall had the final say six minutes from time.
