Robinson hits brace as Arsenal U18s come from behind to beat Tottenham 5-3


Arsenal U18s staged an impressive comeback to eventually beat their Tottenham Hotspur counterparts 5-3 at London Colney today.

The young Gunners found themselves two goals down after just seven minutes after Marcus Edwards and Kaziah Sterling found the net, but Yassin Fortune’s header from Nathan Tella’s cross reduced the deficit.

In an enthralling encounter Edwards then scored his second goal of the game to make it 3-1 to Tottenham, but Arsenal subsequently found the net again from the penalty spot through Reiss Nelson.

Tottenham had goalkeeper Thomas McDermott to thank for preventing Arsenal from inflicting further damage late in the first-half, but he was powerless to prevent the dangerous Tyrell Robinson from scoring a brace in the second period, which swung the game in Arsenal’s favour.

Arsenal weren’t finished there, however, with Edward Nketiah continuing his excellent start to the season as he made it 5-3 late on.
