Reiss Nelson is on fire
How long will it be before Arsene Wenger drafts Reiss Nelson into his Arsenal first team?
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.
This summer that player was Reiss Nelson, who was deployed in a defensive role by Arsene Wenger, despite the fact he usually plays higher up the pitch.
Since starring in the summer, Nelson has featured regularly for Arsenal U23s, and he’s scoring goals week in, week out.
Reiss Nelson v Liverpool
Liverpool U23 beat Arsenal 2-1 on Friday night, but Nelson was once again on target.
After strikes against Derby County and Man City, the Arsenal teenager now has three goals in three games for the Gunners.
Over the weekend he found the target with a clinical finish in the Liverpool box following an end-to-end attack for the Arsenal youngsters.
Enjoy Reiss Nelson’s goal below.
