The emergence of Reiss Nelson
One of the huge pluses from Arsenal’s pre-season was the emergence of Reiss Nelson.
There is almost always one youngster that does well in pre-season for Arsenal and often stars at the Emirates Cup.
This has been tradition ever since Arsene Wenger has been at the club and is testament to his ability to bring through players from the Gunners youth sides.
Besides new signings Sead Kolasinac and Alexandre Lacazette, Arsenal fans are super excited about Reiss Nelson right now.
Nelson impressed on Arsenal’s tour of Australia and at the Emirates Cup on the weekend.
Reiss Nelson stars v Derby U23

The Gunners won the match 3-2 against the Rams.
Many tuned into the match to see Jack Wilshere compete in an Arsenal jersey once again.
But Wilshere was overshadowed by Reiss Nelson as he scored a double in the match.
Nelson scored twice in the second half, including a brilliant solo effort for his second against Derby.
