Aaron and TJ Eyoma: Two brothers could soon be playing for Arsenal and Tottenham's first teams

Emirates Stadium 2

The Eyoma brothers faced off for Tottenham and Arsenal's under-18 side at the weekend.

Arsenal and Tottenham have a rivalry among the most bitter in the Premier League, but it could soon have a family feel to it in one aspect.

Both teams have a brother each playing for their respective academies, who faced off for the under-18s at the weekend.

Aaron Eyoma is the captain of Arsenal's under-18 side, and took on his younger brother TJ Eyoma who came on as a substitute for Tottenham Hotspur when the two sides met on Saturday at London Colney.

The game ended up in a 3-3 draw, with Spurs coming back from 3-3 down to claim a draw.

Should both players progress to the first team, they would become the first pair of brothers to play for Arsenal and Tottenham against each other.

While this is a little way off in terms of the progression of each, it is a fascinating story to keep an eye on over the next few years.

Aaron Eyoma, 18, has featured for Arsenal's under-19s in the UEFA Youth League and has also made brief appearances for the under-21s, and plays at right-back. 

TJ Eyoma has been a regular for Tottenham's under-16 side this season at centre-back, but could feature more often for the under-18s next season.

Arsenal under-21 midfielder Chris Willock also has a brother playing for Manchester United's under-21s, Matty Willock.
