Arsenal summer signing Hugo Keto set for u-19s debut after Huddart call-up

The Finnish youth international is set to start for Arsenal against Borussia Dortmund in the Uefa Youth League.

Arsenal take on Borussia Dortmund today in a big Champions League qualifier, as Arsene Wenger looks to overcome the club's recent woes with a decent performance in Europe.

Of course he will do so with some injury concerns.

While they have been boosted recently by the returns of Theo Walcott, Olivier Giroud and, to training this week, Laurent Koscielny they still have several areas of concern.

Summer signing David Ospina is injured. As is Wojciech Szczesny. The Pole came off at the weekend against Manchester United after suffering an injury during a collision with his own player Kieran Gibbs.

He hurt his hip in the incident and is therefore unavailable.

With that in mind Argentine stopper Emiliano Martinez will again take to the field in goal for Arsenal. That means Ryan Huddart will come up from the reserves to play back-up goalkeeper.

All of this is music to the ears of young Finn Hugo Keto. The talented stopper was signed from under the nose of Liverpool in the summer from HJK Helsinki.

And according to Arsenal youth expert Jeorge Bird he will play for Arsenal's under-19s for the first time when they take on Borussia Dortmund this afternoon in the Uefa Youth League.

It will be his first appearance in the competition for Arsenal and the 16-year-old will be hoping to impress against Arsenal's German rivals.
