Our under-23s take on chelsea at london colney in the premier league 2.
our youngsters sit fifth in the top tier of academy football, and are looking to bounce back from defeats at leicester city and everton with a positive result against their fourth-placed visitors.
the likes of cohen bramall, chris willock and reiss nelson are all expected to be in action at london colney today, 2.30pm (nigerian time). good luck, young guns!!! #wearethearsenal
Lucas perez: "after i scored a hat-trick in the cl against basel, the boss didn't count on me, but that means some team-mates are very good. the team has had a losing streak of 3 or 4 games so i have to wait for my moment & make the most of it when it arrives. it's normal that there was a lot of criticism after the defeat at bayern. we now have a very complicated game [in the 2nd leg]. bayern are one of the best teams in the world & it'll be very difficult after conceding 5 goals. all we can do is keep fighting. he (arsene) has been here for a long time & has a lot of experience, so he knows what's best for the club & for him. the boss doesn't transmit to us the idea that he's going to leave, but we don't know what's going on in his mind." #wearethearsenal
