Arsenal youngster Reiss Nelson continued his incredible form for the Arsenal Under-23 team by scoring a wonderful free-kick against Manchester United.
Well, there haven’t been many young players coming through the Arsenal academy in recent years who are quite like Reiss Nelson.
The likes of Fran Merida and Gedion Zelalem come to mind but Nelson seems different and he is continuing to impress on the pitch.
Most Arsenal fans got to know Nelson over the summer with his involvement in the Gunners’ pre-season tour of Asia and Australia.
Now, he is playing for the Arsenal Under-23 team and after winning the Premier League 2 Player of the Month award for August, he seems to just keep impressing.

The Gunners’ Under-23s were taking on their equivalents from Manchester United at Leigh Sports Village.
Arsenal won the match 2-0 thanks, in part, to this incredible free-kick from Nelson. If he keeps going like this then it won’t be long before we see him in the Arsenal first-team.
