Puigmal converts after the initial penalty is saved, according to Arsenal Academy twitter

They mentioned several good chances for Arsenal in the first half after Reiss Nelson's free kick made it 1-1.

That arsenal team is packed full of men’s team experience. If we do get a result the lads should take huge confidence from it.

Yea I’d seen that earlier. That’s honestly even more ridiculous. It’s premier league clubs with people paying for subscriptions solely to watch these matches. They should all be filmed and broadcast. It’s a joke one club can just say no to filming a professional match which people are paying for.

Average age of Arsenal's starting line-up = 20 years 6 months. They had 5 defenders 3 CB and 2 FB.

Average birthday of United 11 = 26 May 2002. Making the Arsenal 11 just over 2 years older on average.

PS: Calculated average age by calculating their average birthday which was 16 April 2000 (Arsenal)

A draw is a fantastic result on the paper......but if you lead 3-1 and the other team plays for 15 minutes with 10 players then it is surely disappointed.

Hugill's record so far is really special.

Good to see Puigmal is back from his injury and hopefully he will be a key player in the next few weeks.

Laird is again injured? :rolleyes:

There was a Hugill who scored for Rotherham( I think). Any relation?

He scored for Norwich against Rotherham - and they are not related. Jordan is from Middlesboro - Joe from Sunderland.

Found this online from a few months back:
"Unlike his namesake Jordan Hugill, who plays for QPR but bears no relation, Joe is a 16-year-old youth prospect who has spent his entire footballing career with his boyhood club Sunderland. "

I is still fantastic when we play a good youth team two years older than us. Of course, it also depends a bit on how the game was actually played, which nobody here seems to know. As with Laird’s absence.
