Carlos Vela Plays 45 Minutes As Young Guns Win The Herbert Chapman Trophy

Young Mexican starlet Carlos Vela played 45 minutes, as Arsene Wenger’s young side secured a hard-fought win over Huddersfield Town this evening at Galpharm Stadium. The Gunners’ boss nominated a very youthful side for the trip to West Yorkshire, with a lot of Reserves and Youth players included in the 20-man squad.

The young Gunners managed a very late win, thanks to goals from Under 18 forward Sanchez Watt, as well as Dutch winger Nacer Barazite.

Vela started brightly in the opening minutes, as Jack Wilshere found him with a through ball, but Town keeper’ Jim Goodwin reacted well on Vela’s left footed effort from difficult angle.

Minutes later, Vela again tried to work some openings for the Gunners, as he sent a left footed effort just wide. Carlos got another chance, as he made a brilliant turn near the edge of the area, but his left footed shot was held onto by Huddersfield stopper Jim Goodwin.

At halftime Arsene Wenger has decided to substitute all of his young experience players, as Carlos Vela was replaced by Jay Simpson, as well as Theo Walcott went off for Dutch Winger Nacer Barazite.

Huddersfield should get their goal, as James Berett scored, with a deflected shot from the edge of the area.

Just three minutes later, the young Guns showed their strength and got their equaliser, as Sanchez Watt finished a lovely ball by Jay Simpson from the right hand with Watt on hand to strike it home.

And Arsenal should secured the win of the Herbert Chapman Trophy as Dutch winger Nacer Barazite sealed the victory with a 25 yard long range effort.

Next up for Carlos is the Amsterdam Tournament next weekend!!
