The depths of Arsene Wenger’s factory of young talent seemingly knows no limits.
Yet again the Young Gunners impressed in the Carling Cup win over Liverpool last week and the second string side didn’t include the players who have been sent out on loan.
Jay-Emmanuel Thomas was one of the stars of the FA Youth Cup success last season and he has been impressive on loan at Blackpool this season.
The 18-year-old midfielder scored his first ever senior goal in the 3-3 draw with Doncaster on Saturday and the quality of the run and finish suggests Arsenal have yet another precocious talent on their hands.
Highlights of the 3-3 draw between Doncaster and Blackpool can be seen here, with the Jay Emmanuel-Thomas goal at 0.35.
