Edu Gaspar reacts to Arsenal U-21s' win over Monaco

Arsenal‘s U21s side picked up an impressive 2-1 victory over Monaco in the Premier League International Cup last night.

The young Gunners have been brilliant this season. They’re unbeaten in the Premier League 2 and are currently on top of the table. They’re now impressing against teams outside of the UK as well.

Arsenal U-21s’ beat Monaco 2-1

Arsenal hosted Monaco at Meadow Park last night in what was a really fun game of football to watch.

The Gunners dominated most parts of the clash and could’ve even had an early penalty. However, the referee waved play on, but it didn’t take too long for the youngsters to take the lead.

Catalin Cirjan opened the scoring with a fine finish after he received the ball from skipper Matt Smith.

Cirjan was absolutely fantastic and he showed fellow Arsenal youngster Charlie Patino – who was watching the game from the stands – that he’s ready to provide some stiff competition when he comes back from Blackpool.

Arsenal had plenty of chances from that point until the hour mark to extend their lead, but they missed numerous opportunities. Thankfully for the young Gunners, Jack Henry-Francis sealed the game in the 69th minute.

Monaco pulled a goal back 13 minutes before the end of normal time, but that wasn’t enough to mount a comeback.

Edu reacts with four-word Instagram message

Edu has been fairly active on Instagram lately.

The Arsenal technical director, who has done a magnificent job at the Emirates since he came in back in 2018, congratulates all of the Gunners’ teams after victories.

He has done it for the senior men’s side, women’s sides and also the U18s when they have managed to pick up all three points in a game. Yesterday, it was the U21s’ turn to be at the end of some praise.

“Beautiful…well done boys!!,” he wrote on his Instagram Stories after the game last night.
