Donyell Malen struck a 91st minute equaliser as Arsenal U18s came from behind to draw 1-1 away to Aston Villa today.
Villa took the lead through Harry Knibbs but, after coming close on several occasions, Arsenal eventually levelled through Malen.
Arsenal were without several players who were involved with the U23s yesterday, while they were doubt a further setback when Marcus McGuane had to be substituted in the first half due to injury.
Alex Crean, who joined Arsenal in September, made his debut in goal while trialist Zech Medley was again called upon at centre-back.
Arsenal: Crean; Osei-Tutu, Olowu, Medley, Pileas; McGuane, Burton; Tella, J. Willock, Smith-Rowe; Malen. Subs: Ballard (for McGuane, 18). Not used: Virginia, Omole, Coyle.
