U18 Premier League
Norwich City 1 (Barkarson 40) Arsenal 5 (Greenwood 23, 44, Clarke 48, Coyle 54, 90)
Sam Greenwood and Trae Coyle both hit braces as Arsenal U18s thrashed Norwich City 5-1 away today, with Harry Clarke also getting on the scoresheet.
Coach Kwame Ampadu made three changes to his team, with Joel Lopez, Coyle and Folarin Balogun all coming into the starting lineup.
Arsenal started brightly and took the lead midway through the first half when Greenwood got his second goal in as many games.
Norwich then equalised through Atli Barkarson but Greenwood struck again before the break as Arsenal went into half-time in the ascendancy.
In the second half the young Gunners seized control of the game, with Harry Clarke finding the net following impressive work from Bayli Spencer-Adams before the hugely talented Coyle hit a brace.
In the midst of all that Matt Smith missed a penalty, but it mattered little in the grand scheme of things.
Arsenal face West Bromwich Albion away next weekend in the Premier League Cup.
Arsenal: Okonkwo; Daley-Campbell, Spencer-Adams, McGuinness (Alebiosu 78), Lopez; M. Smith, Clarke; Greenwood, Coyle, Cottrell (Flaherty 72); Balogun (Matthews 82). Subs not used: Hein, Martin.
