Arsenal fans got a glimpse of the future last night as Reiss Nelson made his first ever start for the club in the Carabao Cup.

17-year-old Nelson has been tearing it up for the under-23s and is regarded as one of the club's most talented teenagers in years.

He was selected to start in last night's 1-0 win over Doncaster Rovers.

However Nelson was not quite given free reign to thrive. The young winger was asked to play at wing-back, meaning his defensive duties prevented him from playing his usual game.

Ainsley Maitland-Niles had a similar problem in the Europa League last week, but Arsene Wenger corrected this at half-time and switched him to midfield.

Nelson had no such reprieve, and fans were left frustrated with their manager's decision, concerned that he is hampering his early development.
