Good morning, Arsenal fans
Arsenal youngster Ethan Nwaneri – who wasn’t even born when the Emirates Stadium was opened – has become the youngest player in Premier League history after coming off the bench in the final moments of this match.
The 15-year-old was promoted to first team training this week having made his U21’s debut at the beginning of September.
And the attacking midfielder has already earned a spot in Mikel Arteta’s squad with the likes of Martin Odegaard and Emile Smith-Rowe unavailable due to injury.
Nwaneri, who was born in March 2007, breaks the previous record held by Harvey Elliott who was 16yrs and 30days when he came on for Fulham.
Nwaneri is just 15yrs and 180days.
Mikel Arteta feels Aaron Ramsdale should be England’s No1 ahead of Jordan Pickford.
The Arsenal keeper kept a clean sheet in the 3-0 win over Brentford on Sunday lunchtime.
Speaking after the game, Arteta said: “I think Aaron is really confident anyway! It would be a good reward for him for what he has done.
“I hope he is [picked for the World Cup].
“I think it would be great for us and Aaron. He showed in the last year what he is capable of doing. We will be watching and waiting for that decision.”
Gabriel Magalhaes has added salt to Ivan Toney’s wound’s after brutally trolling him following Arsenal’s emphatic win over Brentford.
Toney had been left speechless by his first ever England call up – and he still hadn’t found his voice today.
Brentford barely heard a peep out of their striker as he was outshone by Arsenal superstars William Saliba, Gabriel Jesus and Fabio Vieira.
And Gabriel rubbed in the defeat even more when he Tweeted after the game: “Nice kick about with the boys.”
Smug Arsenal fans joined in too, as they chanted “Ivan Toney, a stroll in the park.”
The chant was a nod to the ex-Peterborough man’s cheeky “nice kick about with the boys” Tweet after Brentford inflicted a humbling 2-0 defeat over Arsenal on the opening day of the 2021/22 season.
