Chuba Akpom is in fine goalscoring form at the moment, netting a hat-trick against a Singapore XI in our first pre-season clash. He’s continued in that vein against a team of children, smashing past a diminutive shot-stopper and celebrating with his new teammates.
It’s great to see him in such confident mood ahead of the new season, although this goal is unlikely to be the one that convinces Arsene Wenger that the young Englishman is ready to make the step up.
Check out the goal and hilarious celebration below:
We have been fantastic with our fans during pre-season, and have held a number of events to ramp up fan involvement.
The main event was the unveiling of our 2015/16 away kit, with a massive crowd turning out to see our stars donning the new gold and navy strip.
- Mesut Ozil to ‘terminate contract’ with Arsenal and join boyhood club
- [Player ratings] Arsenal 0-0 Crystal Palace: Flying save earns Gunners a drab point
- [Team news] Arsenal line up vs Crystal Palace – ‘Special’ star returns
Hopefully Akpom can continue in this way heading into the new season, and finally get his first senior goal for the club.
