Arsenal U21s remain unbeaten in Premier League 2 this season and the impressive form of goalkeeper Hubert Graczyk is a significant factor behind that sequence.
The 19-year-old has yet to keep a clean sheet this season, but he has a made a catalogue of impressive stops, including during the draw against Liverpool at the weekend.
The highlight of that game for Graczyk was his penalty save to deny Luke Chambers and afterwards the shot-stopper revealed to Arsenal Player that he had done a lot of research on Chambers’ penalties.
Graczyk commands his penalty area with authority and is very vocal, with his defenders often working well in front of him.
In the early stages of the season Graczyk has had to cope with many changes in the back four, but when pressed into action he is capable of making fine stops.
Graczyk has already been the third-choice goalkeeper on matchday for the first-team and he will hope that he can get a call-up to be on the bench at some point during the Europa League group stages.
Eventually a loan spell will follow for Graczyk, but for now he is relishing playing for the U21s.
In the long term he faces a very difficult task in attempting to get ahead of Arthur Okonkwo and Karl Hein and potentially Aaron Ramsdale eventually, but as things stand his development is going very well.
