Swanson, Ideho and Azeez among five youngsters to train with Arsenal first-team ahead of Crystal Palace clash

Five members of the U23 squad were involved in first-team training at London Colney today ahead of tomorrow night’s game away to Crystal Palace.

Zak Swanson was among those who were called upon, with the right-back in contention to be on the bench again if Takehiro Tomiyasu is still out.

Midfielder Miguel Azeez was also involved along with defender Omar Rekik, who is back from injury.

Another defender, Mazeed Ogungbo, was also called upon, as was winger Joel Ideho.

First-team goalkeeper Aaron Ramsdale is back in training after injury, while Bukayo Saka has recovered from Covid-19.



  1. Zac Swanaon ia a 6ft2inch defender 32 years old….a vastly improved defender who can play on the left or right side. Could well be an answer to our current problem. Thanks for listening Trevor Dearling
