The ever-sidelined Abou Diaby and youth prospect Serge Gnabry also featured in the reserve fixture on their return to fitness.

PERFORMANCE

Arsenal Under-21’s boss Steve Gatting praised the three first team squad members on their efforts in the loss, speaking to Arsenal.com: “The result was disappointing and the performance was okay. We came out with some good positives. Abou Diaby was excellent in the time he was on the pitch and Jack Wilshere was outstanding - the best player on the pitch by far.

"Serge Gnabry got through it for the second 90 minutes he’s played for us and it’s minutes on the pitch that will get their sharpness back.”

Wilshere will be hoping to stay injury free on his return, with the Gunners still hoping to claim a Premier League and FA Cup double.
