Nelson - The goal that really stands out for me

Reiss Nelson

Reiss Nelson has already made a big impact this season, finding the net six times in the opening four games as he was named Premier League 2 Player of the Month.

The 17-year-old midfielder came off the bench for the first team in last week's 3-1 win over Cologne and will hope to be involved again when Doncaster Rovers visit Emirates Stadium in the Carabao Cup.

But when it comes to those six strikes, there is one which stands out above the rest his strike against Manchester City at the Emirates.

"I saw the left wing-back had it in position," Nelson told Arsenal Player. "I knew the right back kept following me in so I brought him into a position where I knew I could turn. 

"I was on the halfway line and turned, dribbled down the left-hand side and then played a one-two with my left full back, got it inside and then shot. Luckily I scored.

"I think I’m getting more and more confident with the more games I play for the under-23s. If I do get a yard of space or a chance to shoot, I will have a pop."
