Arsenal have a number of incredible talents coming through the ranks at Hale End.
And one of those put in a sensational displays for the Gunners Under-23s against Chelsea on Friday.
Salah Oulad M’hand is one of the brightest talents in Arsenal’s academy setup.
The 18-year-old joined the Gunners on a free transfer in 2020 after leaving Feyenoord’s academy.
He sadly spent most of last term on the sidelines following a stress fracture he suffered near his ankle.
But this season, Salah has been in sensational form, with six goals and three assists from 17 age-level games.
On Friday, the playmaker scored a fantastic goal against Chelsea, making a mockery of their defence.
Here is a video of the Arsenal starlet’s effort:
On Twitter, Jeorge Bird noted how Salah played on the left wing and cut inside, which seemed to really suit him.
Very Coutinho-esque, in fact, and a couple of Arsenal fans replied that Salah indeed reminded them of the Brazilian.
The prospect of a Coutinho 2.0 being in Arsenal’s ranks is one that’s sure to leave many Gooners buzzing.
Along with Salah, Zach Awe and Omari Hutchinson netted for Gunners against the Blues.
Arsenal have notched up several superb wins over their London rivals at academy level recently.
The Gunners have prevailed over Chelsea at U23, U21 and U18 levels in the past month.
