U18 Premier League
Arsenal 3 (Smith-Rowe 36, 90, Burton 87) West Ham United 1
Emile Smith-Rowe marked his return to the starting line-up with a brace as Arsenal U18s beat West Ham United 3-0 at London Colney today, with first-year scholar Robbie Burton also in the scoresheet.
The sole change to the starting line-up saw Smith-Rowe come in for Burton.
Osei Tutu-Ballard-Pileas-T. Bola
Smith Rowe-J. Willock-Medley
Subs: Burton (for Medley, 67), Benson (for Fortune, 76), Omole (for Ballard, 90). Not used: Barden.
Smith-Rowe opened the scoring in the first half following impressive work from Yassin Fortune but Arsenal had to wait until the 87th minute to make it 2-0 when substitute Burton scored his first goal of the season.
In the final moments Smith-Rowe was alert to add further gloss to the scoreline as Arsenal bounced back from the defeat that they suffered against Fulham last time out.
