Arsenal starlet spotted training with the first team ahead of Burnley clash

Arsenal starlet spotted training with the first team ahead of Burnley clash

Arsenal make weekend trip to Turf Moor

After the Gunners finally got their season up and running with a nervy 1-0 win over Norwich last Saturday, they will travel to Lancashire this weekend to take on Sean Dyche’s Burnley side.

The Clarets have endured an equally tricky start to the season, losing three of their opening four encounters and conceding a late equaliser to Leeds United to turn a potential three points into just a solitary one.

As a result, the game has already taken on added significance for both sides at the bottom of the Premier League table, with defeat for either likely to see them slide further towards the relegation zone.

Arsenal youngster spotted in training

Ahead of the encounter between the two bottom-half sides, Arsenal fans have spotted another academy product training with the club’s first-team, following in the footsteps of Charlie Patino and Kido Taylor-Hart.

The man in question? In-form youth team striker Khayon Edwards. The 18 year-old has netted an impressive six goals in four outings for the U-18s so far this season, a return which has duly been recognised.

Given the strength boasted in his position (Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, Alexandre Lacazette, Eddie Nketiah and Folarin Balogun are all ahead of the youngster should Mikel Arteta be picking a man to lead the line) at Arsenal, it is unlikely that Gunners fans will see Edwards feature against Burnley, although a space in the squad for the Carabao Cup tie against Wimbledon could be up for grabs.

Arsenal fans, would you like to see the young hitman given a chance in the cup?
