Arsenal Yth v Everton Yth

Everton's under 18s have sufered an opening day defeat to Arsenal.

The young Toffees went down 3-1 to their London opponents.

The Blues were missing several players through injury, while the likes of Jose Baxter and James Wallace are currently with the first team squad.

Arsenal were the better side in the early stages and took the lead after 20 minutes. They continued to dominate proceedings and doubled the lead from a corner just before half time.

The second half followed the same pattern as the first - though Everton's passion and commitment certainly wasn't in question.

But the Gunners made it 3-0 half way throught the second period.

Cory Sinnott's goal following a set-piece gave the travelling side a brief glimmer, but Arsenal didn't waver.

Coach Neil Dewsnip told evertonfc.com: "The lads are disappointed but Arsenal played to a very high standard.

"Our job is now to try and match those standards in the coming weeks. It was a tough fixture to start the season."
