Jack Wilshere and Dan Crowley made the headlines during our 4-0 win over Brentford on Tuesday, with both men finding the net, as reported on Arsenal’s official website.

The pair were joined by first-team stars Mikel Arteta, Mathieu Debuchy, and Abou Diaby, as well as a host of the usual Under-21 suspects.
Wilshere has been out of action since November, when a nasty challenge from Manchester United defender Paddy McNair left him sidelined with an ankle injury. He was back with a bang against Brentford however, scoring the opening goal to get Arsenal off the mark.
Crowley made it two, with Wilshere playing a major role in the build-up. The 17-year-old has been likened to Wilshere in the past, and the two looked to be on the same page as they played a clever one-two at the edge of the box before Crowley slotted in.

Promising young star Alex Iwobi bagged himself a brace before the end of half time, making it 4-0 heading into the break.
The majority of the first team aces were withdrawn at half time, possibly being rested for this weekend’s clash with Liverpool.
There were no more goals, but our young Guns managed to keep the sheet clean and see out the game.
Wilshere will be thrilled to be back playing football, and will hope to play some part during Liverpool’s trip to the Emirates.
Young Crowley has consistently impressed at youth level, and after yet another fantastic performance, may force his way into the first team sooner rather than later.
