Arsenal fans have been expressing their excitement about Tyreece John-Jules on social media, after the youngster opened his account for League One Lincoln City at the weekend.
The teenager is spending the rest of the season on loan at Sincil Bank in a bid to get some experience of first-team football, after shining for the Gunners U23s.
John-Jules was handed his second start against Blackpool on Saturday by Michael Appleton, and the youngster repaid his manager’s faith by scoring the game’s only goal – his first in senior football.
He also cleared off his own goal line, and was awarded man-of-the-match.
It’s a great start for John-Jules, who’ll be hoping to use the loan spell to impress Arsenal’s first-team Mikel Arteta who, in a recent press conference, branded the starlet a ‘really complete player’.
Should he do well, there’s a chance he could be involved next season.
That said, competition could be fierce – Arsenal have some very bright attacking prospects at the moment including Gabriel Martinelli and Eddie Nketiah.
Folarin Balogun is also quite highly rated.

With Arsenal only managing a draw against Sheffield United, news of John-Jules’ performance raised the spirits of some supporters on social media:
