Arsenal's table-topping U18s return to league action on Saturday when they entertain Aston Villa.

Steve Bould's side lead the FA Premier Academy League South by a massive 20 points over second-placed Crystal Palace after an emphatic 5-1 victory at Fulham on their last league outing.

Since then they have also taken a massive step towards the prestigious FA Youth Cup final after a 2-1 win over holders Manchester City, Gilles Sunu and Jay Emmanuel-Thomas scoring in the semi-final first leg at Eastlands.

While only 2,000 turned up for that match, a much bigger crowd is expected at Emirates for the return on Wednesday April 22. Birmingham and Liverpool contest the other semi-final.
