Arsenal's U18 wrapped up the Premier Academy League trophy with a 1-0 win at Tottenham on Sunday.

Rhys Murphy scored the only goal of the game to seal the first part of a possible double, with Steve Bould's side taking on Liverpool in the FA Youth Cup final first leg at Emirates on Friday evening.

Bould said it was the perfect preparation for the final.

"We have continued the winning streak and that's probably the most important thing in the end. They are getting winning habits, that's great and hopefully we'll continue it against Liverpool," he said.
