Arsenal Under 23 have somehow started their season worse than the senior side, by going down by a 6-1 scoreline to West Ham Under-23.
The Gunners side did consist of highly-rated future stars Miguel Azeez, Charlie Patino and Omar Rekik, while they came up against three senior players in Masuaku, Lanzini and Yarmolenko, who are most likely in need of minutes to get their match sharpness up.
Armstrong Okoflex will have picked up the Man of the Match award, a former Arsenal youngster who left to join Celtic, before returning to London with the Hammers this summer, and he picked up a hat-trick on his debut for the West Ham U23 side.
