10 in 6 games! Arsenal youth sensation Mavididi nets again.

The latest hotshot to emerge in Arsenal's production line of talent is at it again.

Teenage striker Stephy Mavididi has been in sensational form for their under-18 side since the season began and he continued that at the weekend.

The 16-year-old struck Arsenal's first in an away fixture at Fulham, to spark a comeback from 2-0 down to win 3-2.

The goals made it an impressive 10 this season, in only six games and he took to Twitter to show his delight.

Mavididi is down the queue of strikers for a first team berth and any call-up would be a long way off, but as his career gets going, he could not have asked for a better start.

Arsenal's under-18s now top the division in which they finished ninth last season, and there are further challenges for Mavididi this season beyond helping them finish in first place.

He is likely to be involved in Arsenal's FA Youth Cup push, and if he continues his form then a UEFA under-19 Youth League call-up could arrive, as could further under-21 chances.

Mavididi came off the bench for the under-21s last week, following in the footsteps of players like Gedion Zelalem and Daniel Crowley getting their chances in the 21s at just 16.
