Photos: 18-year-old prospect shown no mercy in Arsenal training

Arsenal will face West Ham United in the Premier League this afternoon.

The Arsenal players were training on Friday ahead of the Premier League game against West Ham United away from home this afternoon.

Arsenal will take on West Ham in the London derby at the Boleyn Ground in a few hours’ time.

One of the players who attended the session was 18-year-old striker Kaylen Hinds, who has yet to make his league debut for the Gunners.

The teenager, who signed his first professional contract with the North London outfit in February 2015, is rated highly and is said to have a bright future.

It must be a great feeling for Hinds to train with the Arsenal first team, but he was shown no mercy by the stars during the session.

As the photos below show, the training on Friday was intense and Hinds was given a glimpse into the competitive nature of Premier League football.

Arsene Wenger’s side need to win this afternoon in order to maintain their slim chances of catching league leaders Leicester City.
