The Gunners are on top of the Premier League table – five points above defending champions Manchester City. They have been phenomenal this season, and a win over Spurs away from home on Sunday will definitely send a strong message to their rivals.
Arteta would love nothing more than three points this weekend.
Myles Lewis-Skelly called up to Arsenal training ahead of Tottenham clash
Arsenal players are busy at work at London Colney, getting ready to take on Tottenham in what is a hugely important game in their season.
All the big names were present in training today, but the surprise inclusion was 16-year-old Lewis-Skelly, who is one of the Gunners’ most exciting talents.
The teenager is a defensive midfielder by trade, but he can play anywhere across the midfield.
He is highly rated behind the scenes at Arsenal, with an unnamed Gunners scout, who has been at Arsenal for 30 years, telling Vavel that he’s among his ‘top ten’ of all the players he has ever seen at the club.
He went on to brand him, and Ethan Nwaneri, as ‘absolutely outstanding’.
“At the moment, we’ve got two under 16’s where if I had to pick out a top ten of all the players I’ve known of in 30 years of being at Arsenal these two would be in my top ten, they’re outstanding,” he claimed.
“One is a boy called Myles Lewis-Skelly and the other is Ethan Nwaneri, and my biggest worry about them is if we can keep them because I would say all the biggest clubs in the country will be sniffing around trying to get them.
“These two boys are absolutely outstanding, and I would go as far as to say that if they’re not given a chance in the first team in 2-3 years then we’re all guessing!”
Here’s Lewis-Skelly in Arsenal training today alongside Marquinhos.
