Our under-18s drew 2-2 with Blackpool in their FA Youth Cup semi-final first leg at Bloomfield Road.
Kwame Ampadu’s side twice took the lead through Tyreece John-Jules and Xavier Amaechi, but Blackpool hit back twice to leave the tie in the balance going into April’s second leg at Emirates Stadium.
In a special edition of The Breakdown, former Gunner Adrian Clarke assesses our youngsters’ performance and focuses on:
- Xavier Amaechi and Vontae Daley-Campbell’s combinations
- Tyreece John-Jules link-up play in the No 10 role
- Our run to the final four of the competition
- How a lack of focus could have cost us in the end
