Reiss Nelson makes debut as Arsenal overcome Chelsea in Community Shield 

Talented youngster Reiss Nelson made his official debut for Arsenal in today’s Community Shield success against Chelsea at Wembley. 

Having made a tremendous impact in pre-season, Nelson was rewarded with a place on the bench today and the prospect entered the fray in the 87th minute when he replaced Danny Welbeck. 

Victor Moses put Chelsea in the lead shortly after the interval but Arsenal seized control after the dismissal of Pedro, with Sead Kolasinac equalising and the game ending 1-1. 

Arsenal proceeded to win 4-1 on on penalties. 

Joe Willock, meanwhile, was an unused substitute. 



  1. According to some reports Reiss Nelson has been promoted to the first team. Will likely play in the Europa league which look it will be treated as League Cup was: the cup to play an experimental team.
    IMHO, Joe Willock is not ready to be part of the first team. Any chance he could be send on loan to a league 1 club. I don’t think sending him to a championship club where he most likely seat on the bench would be beneficial to his development. At a league 1 club, he is more likely to have opportunity to play.

    1. Wining Europa league may be our best chance to secure CL football next year and it would also be our first mayor trophy in ages + first Europe trophy ever. I do believe Nelson and Willock should play mayor part in this competition, they are already better than many first team players.

      1. He’ll when did u start supporting the club. First of all we have won 3 major trophies in the last 4 seasons. Secondly what this about first European trophy ever? We won the Fairs Cup and the Cup Winners Cup.

    2. Don’t think a loan is right for Joe Willock at this stage of his career. Better served developing at the club at his age, and League 1 is not the best environment for him imo.

  2. A loan to a Dutch or French club that plays the same kind of football than Arsenal may be the best proposition for Joe Willock.
    League One may b too physical and Championship too fast.
