Arsenal under-21s: Macey, Johnson, O’Connor, Ajayi, Robinson, Hayden, Kamara, Iwobi, Zelalem, Crowley, Akpom

Subs: Huddart, Smith, Sheaf, Willock, Mavididi

Arsenal will fancy their chances of going back to the top of the second division of the under-21 Premier League when they play Bolton this evening.

The young Gunners have been in good form so far this season and will be looking to put another digit in the win column, which would be their seventh of the season.

They need to win and keep the pressure up on Newcastle, who have overtaken them after Arsenal held the lead through the early part of the season.

Arsenal’s defence has been superb so far this season, conceding just six goals in nine fixtures, which is a remarkable record and one which the young side should be proud of.

This is a great chance for the younger players on show to impress their coach and first team boss Arsene Wenger, who is likely to be paying close attention to the result this evening, with the first team having time off until Wednesday.
