Arsenal U23s beat Spurs U23s 2-1 at the Emirates on Friday evening. Read on for Layth Yousif’s PLAYER RATINGS

Arsenal

Emiliano Martinez: 7 – Replaced Deyan Illiev in goal. Composed from the former Independiente netmindere. But as a 25-year-old over-age player so he should.

Joe Oluwu: 7 - Solid and deserved applause when he was replaced by Sheaf early in the second half.

Tolaji Bola: 7 - Worked hard

Charlie Gilmour: 7.5 – Shows excellent defensive discipline in holding his shape in front of the backline. Metronomic and consistent. Missed a penalty but credit ahs to go to Spurs keeper Brandon Austin

Daniel Ballard: 7.5 - This lad has character in abundance after twice being rejected by the club, only to return. Thoroughly earned a pro deal through his solid performances.

Julio Pleguezuelo: 7 - The 21-year-old captain put in a shift

Xavier Amaechi: 7.5 – Worked hard and can be proud of his efforts.

Joe Willock: 8 – Early goal to put the old enemy on the back foot. Strong and athletic.

Tyreece John-Jules: 8 - Another of boss Freddie Ljungberg’s changes and his performance fully vindicated his selection. Excellent powerful strike to make it 2-0.

James Olayinka: 7 - A substitute last time out in the hard-fought 3-2 victory over West Ham at the London Stadium, the right-footed 17-year-old started. Looks raw but full of promise. But then so do many Arsenal youngsters at the club. One to watch.

Emile Smith-Rowe: 7 – Not as effective as he would have liked but still a huge talent. Will be all the better for the experience as the club gear up to use him in the forthcoming Carabao Cup with Brentford in late September. Hopefully.

Substitutes:

Ben Sheaf: 7.5 – Good to see the hugely talented Sheaf make an appearance when he came on for Oluwu. Apart from being a hugely talentede football always has an exemplary attitude.

Bukayo Saka: 7.5 - On for Smith-Rowe. Fouled for the penalty which was well saved by Austin

Spurs:

Brandon Austin: 8.5

Brooklyn Lyons-Foster: 7

Jaden Brown: 7.5

Oliver Skipp: 7

Japhet Tankanga: 7.5

Timothy Eyoma: 7

Paris Maghoma: 7

George Marsh: 6.5

Troy Parrott: 4

Shayon Harrison: 6

Tasham Oakley-Boothe: 6

Substitutes:

Jack Ross: 6.5

Jonathan Dinzeyi: 6.5
