Arsenal have several talented under-21 classed players who could have an impact on their season.
The Gunners can be extremely confident of success on all fronts this season as they have a well balanced side with good experience and plenty of youngsters fighting to get regular first team football.
We’ve taken a look at five under-21 stars who could have an impact on Arsenal’s season including two players already in the first team, classed in the under-21 bracket.
The stand out name from the list of under-21 classed players.
The Ox's ability to impact games with pace and venom from the right hand side, or through the middle, doesn't need to be sold.
Classed as an under-21 but he’s already made a significant impact on the first team.
Chambers looks far more mature than his age suggests and he can play three different roles in the first team; right-back, centre-back and holding midfield.
Another extremely versatile defensive player.
He could get a chance to eventually come in at right-back with Carl Jenkinson on loan away from the club and it will be interesting to see if Arsene Wenger uses him in the League or FA Cup.
The German winger has already been used in the first team by Arsene Wenger.
He’s quick, good on the ball and already has that extra level of experience which will be important should he be called upon by Wenger this season. It’s up to him to put pressure on Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Theo Walcott.
Widely described as the ‘next Jack Wilshere’.
Crowley could be given his first team debut in a domestic cup competition in the same way that Cesc Fabregas was first introduced into the Arsenal first team. He can control games in the middle of the pitch.
