Midfielder Marcelo Flores and defender Taylor Foran were both called up by Mikel Arteta for first-team training at London Colney today.
With a host of players on international duty and Arsenal U21s also in action against Ipswich Town tonight, the opportunity arose for the talented youngsters to test themselves against experienced players.
Another member of this intake, Charlie Patino was also involved in the session. He trained with the first-team last season when he was still a schoolboy.
Forward Billy Vigar was also called up for the session as were Omari Hutchinson, Zach Awe and Jack Henry-Francis.
Levi Laing, Luke Plange and Kido Taylor-Hart also took part along with goalkeepers Arthur Okonkwo and Hubert Graczyk.
