Arsenal take on Slavia Prague on Thursday evening in the Europa League as the two sides do battle in the first leg of the quarter-final stage – and Gunners fans reckon Miguel Azeez’s latest Instagram activity is a hint he is involved on Thursday night.
Azeez, 18, has emerged as a regular in the club’s Under-23 side this season – despite his tender age. Of the talents in Arsenal’s reserves and Under-18 sides, Azeez is seen as one of the best prospects with more potential than most.
That was proven when Mikel Arteta handed the teenager his senior debut earlier this season, coming on as a late substitute during a Europa League group stage win over Dundalk. He has posted on Instagram ahead of Thursday’s clash against Slavia.

The central midfielder has been involved in two other Europa League matches, remaining an unused substitute during the 3-0 win over Molde and a 4-1 victory over Rapid Vienna. He has played 15 times for the club’s Under-23 side this season.
Arsenal fans have reacted on Twitter to the news that Azeez has posted on Instagram ahead of Thursday night’s first leg, and many believe it is a hint that he will be involved against Slavia – who have already beaten Rangers and Leicester this season.
Literally better than Ceballos. I really hope he starts
