Arsenal are continuing to give chances for young players to impress.

Arsenal may have lost to Sheffield Wednesday in midweek with an experimental side but the defeat has not soured manager Arsene Wenger on the club's young talent.

The Gunners held a first team training session on Friday which included young defender Julio Pleguezuelo, and midfielder Chris Willock (below).

Pleguezuelo is a Spain under-18 international and is progressing through the ranks after signing from Barcelona in summer 2014.

He is versatile defender capable of playing at centre-back and right-back. The 18-year-old has made five appearances for Arsenal's under-21 side this season.

Chris Willock is a winger who has netted twice this season, once for the under-21s and once for the under-19s in the UEFA Youth League.

He has featured in pre-season games for the Gunners and has a brother who is part of Manchester United's academy.

It would be a surprise if Arsene Wenger gave first team chances to either player this season, but he is clearly keen to help them learn by letting them train alongside first team stars and full internationals.
