VIDEO: Arsenal's 'next Fabregas' scores first goal at club and it's a beauty

Gedion Zelalem

Gedion Zelalem has scored his first goal as an Arsenal player. The first of many?

Arsenal were in ferocious mood this afternoon, as they handed out a pasting to Galatasaray in the UEFA Youth Champions League.

The score ended up 5-1 to the Arsenal youngsters at Meadow Park, with goals from Kaylen Hinds, Chris Willock, Alex Iwobi and Daniel Crowley scoring - while Gedion Zelalem got the ball rolling on the stroke of half-time with a sensational mazy run and finish.

The German youth international has been dubbed the 'next Fabregas' by many at the club because of his excellent ball control and passing ability.

But perhaps surprisingly this was in fact Zelalem's first goal for the club.

The young lad had not yet netted for the club, he usually finds himself too busy creating chances instead.

But his goal was a real beauty, showing off the technique which has seen him tipped for great things.

This Arsenal group has some real talent. The likes of Zelalem, Crowley and Iwobi look like real stars and centre-back Stefan O'Connor has recently trained with the first-team so the future looks bright for Arsenal's Young Gunners.
