Pre-Match Report

U18s preview | Tottenham Hotspur v Arsenal


Our young Gunners are aiming for their fifth consecutive win as we make the short trip to face Tottenham Hotspur in our penultimate under-18s Premier League fixture. Kick-off at Hotspur Way is set for 11am (UK).

Sitting in third place with 44 points from 22 games, our team is in excellent form, having secured victory in six out of our last seven matches, scoring an impressive 41 goals during this period.

Last time out, we displayed our attacking prowess with a commanding 9-0 victory over Norwich City. Chido Martin Obi led the charge with an exceptional seven-goal performance, while late strikes from Andre Annous and Dan Casey sealed off a resounding win for us.

A look at Tottenham

Our north London rivals currently occupy fifth place in the league, having amassed 39 points from 22 games. They'll be entering the derby with confidence following their recent 5-3 victory over West Brom, which included a hat-trick from Damola Ajayi.

Mikey Moore has been a standout performer for Spurs this season, tallying an impressive 14 goals and eight assists in just 12 league games.

Indeed, it's a significant chance for our young Gunners to seek redemption after our defeat in the first north London derby of the season, where we were defeated 4-2.
