Confirmed: Arsenal under-21 line-up v Derby - Strong side from Gunners!

Here's the Arsenal under-21 side for their game at home against Derby this evening, kick-off at 19:00 GMT.

Arsenal Under-21s: Macey, Kamara, Ajayi, O’Connor, Moore, Maitland-Niles, Hayden, Olsson, Crowley, Zelalem, Akpom

Subs: Iliev, Jebb, Wright, Smith, Iwobi

Arsenal’s under-21 side will be looking to leap to the top of the table when they take on Derby this evening.

The Arsenal youngsters secured a narrow 1-0 win against Reading in their first game and will be hoping for a more comfortable victory in their second league game of the season.

However, it won’t be easy as Derby themselves won their first under-21 game of the season with a hard earned 2-1 win against Middlesbrough.

This is a great opportunity and platform for some of Arsenal’s younger players to impress first team boss Arsene Wenger and grab some attention in the one of the best youth systems in Europe.

It’s important for Arsenal to maintain their good form as they are one of four teams currently sharing the leading in division two of the competition and a winning mentality will do them some good over the course of a long season.
