51. Tafari Moore

Right-back

After making a substantial impression during his first season as a scholar, Tafari’s second year as a full-time footballer was heavily disrupted by injury as he missed the majority of the second half of the campaign.

The right-back did, however, feature on six occasions for the U21s at the beginning of the season, whilst also representing the club in the UEFA Youth League.

Quick and capable of delivering well-timed crosses, Tafari previously broke into the second-string side during the first year of his scholarship and, having now returned to full fitness, he will be eager to gain further experience at that level this season.

The youngster, who previously represented Queens Park Rangers before joining the Gunners, has been capped by England at U18 level and was part of the Three Lions’ side that won the U17 European Championships in 2014.

  1. This guy was rubbish today against Chelsea. He didn’t know when to tackle or when to hold his position, didn’t know when to force the opposition down the wing or into the middle. Not very impressed. Where the hell are you hearing comparisons to Sagna? I’m sure this guy used to be an attacking midfielder, he attacked a lot more than he defended! Too unsure of himself.

    1. The whole team near enough played rubbish mate! And your talking rubbish! Don’t know why your signalling him out he was no worse than any arsenal player out there. Your assessment of him in this match is flawed big time and bears no resemblance of his contribution. As for his defending if I remember rightly the goals came through the middle, and he was the one defender doing overtime for the rest at the back, whilst having to deal with his duties which he done and given it a go in assisting the attack trying to get us back into the match. As a confident and assured player as he is! He seemed very sure of himself in this match but maybe not in some of the players around him. Comparing him to Sagna! He is resolute in defence, linking up with the attack, a good engine and has great potential in general !

  2. He used to go to my old school queens park community school he was always taking my football at lunchtime and rip me with his skills whenever I tried to tackle him lol
