Donyell Malen scored his first goal for the club today, but it wasn’t enough to prevent Arsenal U18s from dropping further points as they drew 2-2 with Leicester City at London Colney.
Malen, who joined from Ajax in the summer, opened the scoring with an excellent strike, before Tyrell Robinson made it 2-0 after latching onto a pass from Vlad Dragomir, who was making his first start at this level.
However, Leicester managed to stage a dramatic comeback as they quickly reduced the deficit to 2-1 before an own goal levelled proceedings.
Arsenal’s next game at this level is away to Southampton next week.
There were three changes to the starting line-up for this fixture, with Tolaji Bola, Savvas Mourgos and Dragomir coming in for Kristopher Da Graca, Charlie Gilmour and Joshua DaSilva.
