Eight Arsenal youngsters – including Folarin Balogun – spotted in first-team training ahead of Brighton

 

A host of young talent was spotted in Arsenal training, ahead of the club’s meeting with Brighton & Hove Albion.

Arsenal on song

Mikel Arteta and co. are of course set to return to action tomorrow evening.

As part of the final round of Premier League fixtures, the Gunners will welcome Brighton to the Emirates for a 4pm kick-off.

Arsenal head into the clash with their tails very much up, on the back of a rare stretch of impressive form of late. The north Londoners have racked up four league victories on the trot, the latest of which saw them down capital rivals Crystal Palace by three goals to one.

In turn, remarkably, Arteta’s men have managed to drag themselves back into contention for a spot in the inaugural UEFA Europa Conference League.

As things stand, the Gunners sit 9th, but just a point adrift of Tottenham and Everton above them.

Balogun amongst those spotted

As such, whilst, on the back of their exit from the Europa League, the club’s campaign had looked all but over, Arsenal now have something to fight for on the final day.

Mikel Arteta will therefore be expected to field a strong XI on Sunday evening, to hand his side the best chance of finishing out their season on a high.

Nevertheless, though, as outlined above, the Arsenal boss made use of his latest training session to hand some of the standout young talent currently honing their craft at the Emirates a chance to impress.

As per the reliable Football.London, no less than eight members of the club’s academy were put through their paces alongside Arsenal’s first-team squad this weekend.

The starlets in question, all aged 21 or younger, were lead most notably by striker Folarin Balogun.

Also featuring, though, were all of midfielder Miguel Azeez, Nathan Butler-Oyedji, Mazeed Ogungbo, summer addition Omar Rekik, Alex Kirk, Jonathan Dinzeyi and highly-regarded shot-stopper Arthur Okonkwo.
