Stephy Mavdidi continued his phenomenal start to the season by scoring both of Arsenal U18s’ goals in their 2-2 draw at home to Reading this morning.
Mavididi has now scored nine goals in his first five league fixtures of the campaign to add to the five goals he scored for the U18s whilst he was a schoolboy.
Arsenal were unable to take all three points on this occasion, but Frans De Kat’s side have started well, taking 10 points out of a possible 15.
Several players, including Chris Willock and Kaylen Hinds, were rested following their exploits in the UEFA Youth League in midweek. Schoolboy Tolaji Bola made his first start of the season, with Ryan Huddart and Aaron Eyoma also coming into the side.
Arsenal travel to face Fulham next week.
