U18 Premier League
Swansea City 0 Arsenal 3 (Amaechi 7, John-Jules 78, Saka 79)
Arsenal U18s extended their winning run to five matches as they prevailed past Swansea City with a 3-0 away victory today.
Coach Kwame Ampadu made eight alterations to the side that beat Stoke, with Arthur Okonkwo, Harry Clarke, Bayli Spencer-Adams, Dominic Thompson, Jay Beckford, James Olayinka, Bukayo Saka and Tyreece John-Jules all starting.
Defender Mark McGuinness, meanwhile, made the bench for the first time this season after recovering from injury.
Subs: Burton (for Beckford, 55), Balogun (for Amaechi, 62). Not used: Barden, McGuinness, Swanson.
Arsenal have played some excellent attacking football this season and they continued in that manner on this occasion, with Xavier Amaechi opening the scoring in the seventh minute.
The young Gunners had to wait until late in the second half to double their tally through Tyreece John-Jules before schoolboy Bukayo Saka added further gloss to the scoreline with his fourth goal of the campaign.
Attention now turns to next week’s FA Youth Cup fixture against Sheffield Wednesday, when Ampadu could field a rather different team to the one that started today.
