Arsenal fans react to performance of Omari Hutchinson in mini-North London derby
Arsenal under-18s secured bragging rights during the mini-North London derby on Saturday, with the Gunners running out 4-1 winners.
Zane Monlouis, Omari Hutchinson, Kido Taylor-Hart and Mazeed Ogungbo scored the crucial goals for Arsenal.
Roshan Mathurin scored what proved to be a consolation goal for Spurs.
Following the game, it was the strike by 17-year-old Hutchinson which caught the eye.
His performance, on the whole, was largely impressive, with the winger also adding an assist during the contest.
Hutchinson has been in fine form the Gunners youth ranks this season, scoring twice and registering seven assists.
He has showcased his versatility too, playing on the left, as a No.10, in centre-midfield and at left-back throughout the season.
The youngster will hope to continue his progression and earn a chance in the under-23 ranks as the next step in his development.
His goal on Saturday showcased his talents. He took the ball on the right-hand side, before cutting inside and firing an unstoppable effort past the goalkeeper.
As a result, it led to Arsenal supporters raving about his potential on Twitter.
Here is what they had to say about the player who looks set for a really bright future at the Emirates Stadium.
