Arsenal U18s suffered their first defeat since October as they were beaten 3-1 by their Fulham counterparts at London Colney today.
Striker Edward Nketiah was on the scoresheet again for the Gunners as he found the net for the 12th time in a prolific campaign, but that wasn’t enough to prevent Frans de Kat’s side from falling to a disappointing defeat.

There is no time for Arsenal’s youngsters to be too downtrodden, however, with a trip to take on Aston Villa to come on Friday.
Meanwhile, it was confirmed last night that Arsenal will face Coventry City away in the Fifth Round of the FA Youth Cup, with the victors of that tie to host Nottingham Forest, Liverpool or Cardiff City in the following round.
