Macey on Wolves and Youth League tie

Matt Macey believes Arsenal's under-19s will benefit from the unbeaten form of the under-21s.

The under-21s have five wins in as many games after beating Wolverhampton Wanderers in the league on Friday.

Macey doesn’t want Arsenal to get over-confident but wants them to take the momentum into their coming fixtures.

“Everyone is buzzing,” he told “We have put a good run together and with the younger players playing in the Youth League game on Tuesday it will give them a lot of confidence going into that.

“We are trying to take one game at a time. If we get a draw or a defeat we will bounce back from it but as long as we are winning we can’t really complain.”

Macey also reflected on the win at New Bucks Head as goals from Chris Willock, Stephy Maivdidi and Alex Iwobi helped the Gunners to recover from a goal down.

“It is a good result,” Macey said. ”Five out of five, which keeps the run going. But it was tough, definitely the hardest game.

“[Wolves] were quite direct and physical but the main thing is we stood up to them and were physical back. Our quality showed in the goals, we scored some decent goals and played well.”
