Arsenal Under-18s drew 2-2 with Leicester City at London Colney on Saturday.
Frans de Kat handed Donyell Malen and Vlad Dragomir their first league starts, while the club promoted the Equality in Football initiative before kick-off.
The Gunners started slowly but went ahead after Malen registered his first goal for the under-18s with a deflected strike.
Tyrell Robinson doubled the hosts’ advantage when he raced on to Dragomir’s pass and applied a lobbed finish over Max Bramley after the break.
Darnell Johnson pulled one back for the Foxes 10 minutes later when he lost his marker and fired into the top corner.
Leicester were gifted a dramatic equaliser when Tolaji Bola deflected a low cross past Ryan Huddart and into his own goal five minutes from the final whistle.
Substitute Charlie Gilmour hit the crossbar late on but the hosts were unable to restore their lead.
