Reiss Nelson scored a brilliant goal as Arsenal‘s Under-23s thrashed their Everton counterparts 4-0 on Monday night.
Eddie Nketiah, who made headlines earlier this year when he scored 15 seconds after coming on as a substitute against Norwich City, bagged a hat-trick as Arsenal’s youngsters extended their unbeaten run to six matches.
The Gunners are now just a point behind PL2 leaders Liverpool, having scored 19 goals in their previous five fixtures.
Nketiah opened the scoring after only 12 minutes and completed his hat-trick with two goals in the last half hour of the match.
But the goal of the night undoubtedly went to Nelson, the 18-year-old attacker who has broken into Arsene Wenger’s first team this season, making 12 appearances in all competitions.
After being played through on goal, Nelson displayed both a cool temperament and excellent skill to leave the goalkeeper sprawled on the floor as he man rolled the ball into the net.
Oh yes @ReissNelson9! 😱
Not a bad way to double #AFCU23's lead…

North Korea’s genius ploy unfortunately backfired.
Plus Fernandinho sticks up for Raheem Sterling.
Of course he meant it. He meant everything.
Only eight have lasted longer than five years.
We’re getting a bit bored of this now…
Xherdan Shaqiri always tries elasticos. He’s fun.
Roy Keane was on very good form.
Will Arsenal miss Jack Wilshere?
Can you get all 36?
“It was amazing, the highlight of my career.”
