Reiss Nelson and Eddie Nketiah both scored twice as Arsenal kept up their winning start to the Premier League 2 campaign with a 4-3 victory over Manchester City.

Arsenal went 2-0 up inside 14 minutes when Nelson, a 17-year-old winger, finished a slick team move before 18-year-old striker Nketiah (pictured above left with fellow goalscorer Nelson, centre) slammed in from close range.

Matt Smith pulled one back for Man City just after the half-hour mark, before England midfielder Jack Wilshere, making his comeback from injury, teed up Nketiah for his second on 37 minutes.

Nelson’s smart finish made it 4-1 before Tyreke Wilson and Wilshere were both sent off for an altercation after the former’s late challenge.

Brahim Diaz’s goal and a Lukas Nmecha penalty made it 4-3 with 18 minutes remaining, but the Gunners held on to go top of PL2 Division 1.
